Kathy needed to run 18 miles today for her marathon training. I dropped her off at the Barker Road trail head and then parked by Krispy Kreme. From there I rode out to meet her. I cruised up and down the trail, surprised to see how many people were running and riding in the cold wind.Kathy had a rough 19 miles--yeah, she went a mile too far--but she hung in there like the trooper she is. I got 2-1/2 hours of saddle time in. I'm not nearly as sore and tired as my marathonic wife. The bike is so much easier on the body than running. I'm doing the 25k River Run next Sunday and haven't trained much for it so I'll get mine.
