Drinking now a glass of Kostriker Schwarzbier. It is "Germany's Black Lager," and looks like Pepsi with a thick head. Bought it at Bende on Roosevelt in Glen Ellyn. Tastes good, though I'm not sure where it lands in the healthy drink pantheon.

Why?

I was thirsty. Hot day.

Jim had those of us running a race this weekend do a lighter workout than the others. I have mixed feelings here. I want to race well, but it is my oeveall goal I am more concerned about. If meeting my goal takes training straight through and racing slower initially, so be it. Still, it might be nice to beat 25:00 my first time out.

I think I'll run my time Saturday, but my confidence is shaky. I am getting faster, but I'll only know for sure when I race. Until then, it is just supposing.
