Sunday Long

Third weekly 20+ in a row and I feel good about it.

Got to run with Marc again which was a treat. He made the trip down and we ran the Boyden loop. We started a little later than usual due to being up late watching the men's Olympic marathon. Therefore the temperature was a little higher than I was used to but I did better than I thought I would.

20.6 miles in 3 hours (8:45 avg pace)

I felt pretty good the whole way. I picked up the pace for the final 3.6 miles as Marc's schedule had him stopping at 17 so I was by myself for the end. Long runs make you feel like you are running faster than you really are.

Mike is missing in action and last word is I won't see him again until possibly the middle of September.

Nice run especially considering the later start. Us early morning runners in downeast Maine are spoiled with the always comfortable morning temps.

Old Black Joe


Gone are the days when my heart was young and gay;

Gone are my friends from the cotton fields away;

Gone from the earth to a better land I know,

I hear their gentle voices calling, "Old Black Joe!"

(Refrain:) I'm coming, I'm coming, for my head is bending low;

I hear their gentle voices calling,

"Old Black Joe!"


Why do I weep when my heart should feel no pain?

Why do I sigh that my friends come not again?

Grieving for forms now departed long ago,

I hear their gentle voices calling,

"Old Black Joe!"


Where are thee hearts once so happy and so free?

The children so dear that I held upon my knee?

Gone to the shore where my soul has longed to go,

I hear their gentle voices calling,

"Old Black Joe!"
