Steady 24 miles this morning. With the exception of the first couple miles (body & legs were still asleep), I felt very good and cruised along for 2 hours and 37 minutes. Averaged 6:46 pace for the first 12 miles and 6:19 for the 2nd half. The run ended a 95-mile week.
I watched the World Championship Marathon (Men and Women) the last couple mornings on EuroSport. It was very inspiring, especially seeing and hearing the thunderous cheers each time the runners crossed the Brandenburg Gate. Can't wait to experience it in four weeks.
