Went for a run very early this morning as I could not sleep well because of my ear issue.  Not painful, it just kept me awake is all.  Constant ringing sound in my head from from my auditory nerves sending sending false electrical signals.  Or is a part of my brain going out?  Nobody knows yet.    My wife along with Barry's, (They are both nurses) say this is probably an ear infection or blockage of some sort.   Jeez, I do recall something buzzing into my ear the other day..  But I just can't think that would be it.  Or would it?  Gross and and unnerving to say the least.     10 miles total this morning.  1:05:32 total time.

My hearing finally cleared up today and the ringing stopped.  A very personal miracle of sorts.   I am very relieved and grateful today. Thats all I have to say. 

My run today was a nice 10 miler with the last 3 miles in a gradual downpour.  Funny thing was that the worse the downpour got, the looser and faster my stride became right up until the last .25 miles to home which came in at 74 secs.    I was absoluely drenched.. But thats ok, I really enjoyed the rain this evening.  Sang the Elvis tune Kentucky rain all the way to home I enjoyed it so much.  Crazy..

10 miles total 13th east and Sego Lily loop.   1:02:32 total time.

Easy 4 miles today at 7-8/min pace.    I saw there was going to be a good group of runners at UVM.  Too much fun to pass up I've decided.   Time to carboload and mini taper.  Bring on the Cafe Rio!

Easy 6 miles with some strides.   Legs are getting puffier but fresh, and weight is up by a couple of pounds.  Getting good sleep finally too.   Everything is clicking into place the way I was hoping.    I may just get a good time this weekend!   Good luck to everyone who will be there.

Easy 4 miles this morning. Feel great this morning.

On a side note for those of you who are interested, I was reading online yesterday how the Russians now have announced that they will slowly start to liquidate their Treasury bills. This is because of the reckless spending policies of our government and nation as a whole. This also comes on top of earlier news that the Chinese now want us to borrow in their currency and no longer in dollars. This is pretty alarming stuff folks.. We are losing are reserve currency status and it means our dollar is going to really lose value in the next few years.

Remember Germany in 20s? What happened after that?

Ugh..  A big DNF, and I feel like such a failure today.  Considering how badly things were going and the fact I had to work soon it did not seem wise to slug it out and kill myself today. Better to live and fight another day I told myself.   However I don't feel good about it all and I think deep down something gave up today.   Why?  I just don't know..    I'm hoping soon an answer will come to me.
