Nothing beats a dependable training partner. Mark was on a business trip to the West coast last week and took the red eye flight home from LA on Friday night. He landed here in CT at 6:00 AM saturday morning and then drove right from the airport to my place for a run. We knocked out a solid 22 miles with just under an 8:00 min/mile pace. Now that's dedication.
After the run, the family and I went to the Rhode Island shore for the day. My awesome sister-in-law has some sweet pics and video of our day at the beach on her blog. Check 'em out.
