I Live in Iowa: Week 248

Well there were a couple highlights last week. For starters I visited my grandparents, uncles and an aunt in Minnesota over Good Friday and Easter. I go visited only a few times and year and I had not been over since last fall. Family is the kind of thing you only get one of so make the best of it. It's funny too, because I'm kind of the outsider, at least this past weekend I was, I feel like my family wanted to confide in me more than usual. Maybe it's just that I am finally getting old enough for the adult conversations. 

We only worked four days because we get off for Good Friday, which is awesome! I will tell you what, a day of paid holiday a few times a year is really nice. I started my first project for Coffeyville this past week. It involved spreadsheets and data! I got to use numbers! But seriously, you would be amazed how little math is used in engineering.

I ran 90 miles this past week including the longest training run of my life, 32 miles, at 6:57 pace no less! It's really nice to get back to the kind of volume that I feel I really thrive on. You just can't be a top long distance runner on 40 miles per week. You can do really well, I know a guy that ran a 2:21 marathon off of basically swimming pool training, but not your best. 

Mount Everest approaches. I need to pack this week, and finish tying up some loose ends.
