Here's how it went: I tried to run slower (a.k.a. the pace I'm thinking about for the marathon) and thanks to the treadmill I was able to. Round 1 was 2 miles at each 5.3 mph, 5.4 mph, 5.5 mph, 5.6 mph and then I stopped the treadmill. See, my 'mill won't keep going up in minutes after 90 or 99, so I opted to stop at 88:06 (8 miles even) and reset it. Round 2 was 2 miles at each 5.7 mph and 5.6 mph, with a finish of 1.1 miles at 5.5 mph. If my addition is correct (which it usually is), I ran 13.1 miles in 2:22:35. I walked a nice pace to 2:30:00 to stretch the legs out some.

I also tried out my new sports bra, the Versatx Support Bra, for a longer run. It was nice, no chaffing, and did it's job. It is a relatively new design and I love their previous design so when I could get it 15% off I decided to get it.
Update on ADP's run last Thursday night. The Corporate Challenge has teams that compete from different businesses. This year, ADP was on his company's "Mens A" team which got 4th place overall (the four guys ran 19:32, 19:43, 20:44, and 21:06). Last year ADP was on the team that placed 7th...he's moving up! Congrats to the whole team!
