That's how long I have gone without running. I ran with my brother at Dana Peak Park the weekend before Christmas, and since then, not a step until this morning. I am definitely going to have to readjust to getting up an hour or two earlier. . . .
After this little respite, I now have one month to prepare for Cross Timbers on February 18. Like last year, I will admit that I'm not up to a 50 miler right now, so I'll be running the marathon again. A month is certainly not much time to prepare for a trail marathon; I'm counting on having retained a bit of fitness from the end of last year. Besides, Cross Timbers is a great place for a guy like me to take it slow and easy.
