One more nutrition question! Did your Saturday night meal work well? I sometimes eat sort of light the night before, and I think I maybe need to do more pasta.

Your report has me itching to do another, even knowing I'm signed up for Milwaukee just four months away.

It did! I ate too much though, and ate too much throughout the day. Plenty of pasta, threw in some cabbage on the side, and had one pint of beer with some friends around 7:30pm.

Milwaukee is a full, right? What's it even like there in October? Decent running weather?

Yep, it's a full. It's point-to-point. They bus you north to the start and then you run due south and average downhill to downtown. Weather is usually mild, neither hot or cold, and if there's wind it's usually a cross wind. I picked it as being nearby, a change of scenery, and famously good for PRs.

Thanks for sharing your experience! I'm hoping for personal improvement this fall. I was happy with my finish but think I can do better.
