Shoes and Hotels

My training schedule called for a 10 miler on Sunday – my first “long” run.

I am pleased to report that I was able to knock off nearly 11 miles at an easy pace and felt strong the entire way. My iPod also turned out a great playlist which no doubt helped.

I did feel a little soreness in my knees but that is likely the result of too many miles on my current shoes coupled with hours of bouncing a new baby to sleep. I think it prudent to shell out the monies for a couple pair of new shoes. Does Asics make a pair of neutral-cushioned trainer/bouncers?

I also need to find a hotel near the start of the Jersey Marathon in Long Branch. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Wow, very nice. I cannot begin to describe what I'd give for 11 good miles right now. Heck, six good miles.

Nice work! You'll be knocking down 20 before you know it.
