AM - Easy 6 miles. Went and ran on the paved river trail, and bumped into Cody on the way back. We ran together until the end of the trail, then I diverted off to the new Macys. They are having their grand opening of their new store, and mailed out coupons for free eclairs, free sausage, and free deli salad. I hate Macys almost as much as Walmart, but love free stuff even more, so I decided to check it out. I managed to get the sausage and some seafood salad, but they were out of eclairs and wouldn't have more until 10AM. Seeing as to how is was 6:45AM, I wasn't about to wait around, so I took my other plunder and ran back home 2 miles carrying a bag of meat and salad. Al Gore would have been proud, especially since today is a Red Burn Day here in Logan. It's too bad, though, because I really wanted the eclairs. I was looking forward to eating a six-pack of them at work this morning with multiple cups of coffee. Oh well. Oatmeal it is.
My SI joint had been bothering me for the last two weeks, but I went in to the chiropractor for my monthly appointment last night, and he got my hips rotated back into alignment. Running felt much smoother today. It's always great to get the ol' body fixed up and tuned correctly. Running has been "blah" over the last week or so, mostly because of SI discomfort and feeling biomechanically "off". This morning was very enjoyable, and I had more hop in my step. Hopefully it will stick and not immediately slide back.

I just had a good laugh. I clicked on the "real age" banner ad out of curiosity and annoyance (I'm kind of sick of seeing it), and I took the "real age" test. Although my calendar age is 27.7 years, my RealAge is 18.5! That's funny to me, since that's exactly how old I look. Whenever I fly with my boss for business trips, the ticket counter people assume I'm his son and ask me if I even have a drivers license. It's one thing to get carded at the bar, but another to be asked if you're even 16-years old! Anyway, click on that banner ad for a good chuckle to give Sasha a little ad revenue.
PM - Did 8 miles (Landfill Loop) at 6:48/mile pace. 8x100m strides near the end. Nice day, other than the inversion.
