The McMillan Calculator had me running a 36:12 10k, which seemed hard for me to comprehend, especially since my 10k PR is 37:29 which was run last year in Longmont on a much easier/faster course. I knew a PR was a given and the race temperature of 50 degrees was ideal. Mile Splits:
1 = 5:57 (should have gone out faster)
2 = 5:56
3 = 6:01
4 = 5:57
5 = 5:29
6 = 5:39 36:19
The splits are from my watch and what's odd
5/17 - 8 miles
5/18 - 5.1 miles
5/19 - 8 miles @ 6:29 pace
5/20 - off (bad headache)
5/21 - 18 miles
5/22 - 2 miles
5/23 - 15 miles
Total 56.1 Miles
* Should have been closer to 70 miles.
* Getting excited for San Diego.

* I got a call tonight from some hotel in Breckenridge at 9pm. The lady starts
Brown Cow Burgers is a new burger shop in Englewood and resides in the same building where Old School Burgers used to be. I had been to the Old School Burgers a long time ago when I used to work for Sports Authority Coporate. Old School Burgers was solid but I know that they had some issues with the health department as I remember seeing them on the news and that's not good for business.
It's always risky opening a burger joint in the same space occupied by a previous burger joint
According to the McMillan calculator my best race of the year was my 17:47 5k back in March, which is equivalent to a 1:22:12 half marathon. I figured I could run sub 1:22 on Sunday, thus that was my goal. The previous week was spent moving, thus little sleep and my back has been in total agony. The night before I made the mistake of eating a Philly Cheesesteak and my stomach was a mess. I woke up on race day and ran over to King Soopers to find something to eat for
