9/1/97 Around Cape Ann 25K

25K is an odd distance. Fun road to drive around the cape, but going to be a hilly route. I am going to take it easy today. Training for the Twin Cities Marathon in October has been horrible. Sudden sever knee pain came during a long training run. I had to call Jody for a discouraging ride home. Leg lift exercises strengthened the quads enough to get the knee cap back in place, but I lost precious weeks of training. I have not even run this far in some time, so today really will be a test.
15K - Still holding back and feeling fine. Big well known race and I am with a nice pack.
Finish - Really enjoyed the course. Hills make things interesting. Knee held up so it is all go for Twin Cities next month.
