Day 9.219: Hard-earned sunrise

This is the second week of a rather short marathon-specific training cycle for me. My race is in a little more than six weeks. The last few days have been fairly full-on, 16 on Saturday, 8 on Sunday, 8 on Monday and 12 this morning followed by 4 on the trails after work while Exile #4 was in her karate class. I get to take a day off from running tomorrow.

Getting up before dawn to run 12 miles before breakfast does have its compensations however - like these views for example (it was a little after sunrise by the time I got to the beach):

and, as Exile #2 regularly reminds me, it is all self-inflicted anyway.
