    Finished off the month with a 3.3km walk. Would have gone longer but got sidetracked most of the day with plumbing problems at my parents house... Unfortunately it's still not fixed and might take a lot of work to fix it. This brings me to 40km right on goal for the first time. See ya in May!

    Finished the month with a pretty fast (for me anyway - 7:53/mi.) 5 mile run. Was especially hard in the heat and 20mph wind.
    Ended April with 111 miles.

    Good job everybody. Most people I have seen over achieved their mileage, and the ones that fell short, still made great progress. Everyone should be proud.

    Addendum to today's notes: Saw someone on another thread say their marathon "in September" was Wineglass. I had thought Wineglass was in October; went and looked, and this year it's September 30. And the price goes up tomorrow.

    It might have been something I posted about Wineglass. My in-laws have been begging me for a couple of years to run it (they are from Corning), so that plus net downhill was encouraging for my first full!

    If I had family in Corning I could stay with, I'd probably have run it before now. Everyone I know who had done it speaks well of the course, and one of my buddies turned in a BQ at Wineglass in the first marathon he ran. And again in the second marathon he ran, because it rolled around again before his first Boston.

    It might have been me too. It’s going to be my first full as well. I’ve heard good things about the race and the scenery, and of course the elevation chart.

    So close to making my goal. Had I known I would have pushed myself to keep going. Still +75 for my yearly goal so I’m not beating myself up too much. On to May
