Are You A World Famous Runner?

No, but I am staying at a Holiday Inn Express tonight - the motel with a sign on the AC unit in the fitness room that says "UNIT IS OUT OF ORDER. WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE." You mean like the inconvenience of passing out in a strange city and housekeeping finding your desiccated body 14 hours later? At least breakfast is complimentary.

Anyway, I busted out a 3.25 mile run in desert conditions (remember, you don't create your own wind on the treadmill) at up to 6.5 mph/9:14 pace just to get it over with. I felt as good as I could have under the circumstances. Then I had a half-pound barbecue bacon cheeseburger and a pint of Sierra Nevada while reading The Competitive Runner's Handbook. Ta-da!
