10 Day Forecast

I took my last little jaunt of six miles before the New Haven 20K next Monday. It was easy as I went out slowly with my slow running group and hardly got winded. The pace was up at 9:44. All that's left is Taper Week with a little interval on Tuesday, a couple of miles Wednesday, less than a mile on Thursday and a 3 mile easy jog over the weekend. What's a glutton for miles gonna do? My shoes won't even get soggy this week.
Not to look ahead but I always do ... Forecast for New Haven, September 5: morning low of 64, mostly sunny and moving up to 80 by the middle of the day. Sounds perfect to me. I haven't seen 64 since .... wait a minute ... let me look back a few months ... nope .... nope - April 30!
The lead-in weekend looks great too with sunny skies; temps in the high 70s/low 80s. Perfect for the beach and just about anything. Let's hope Katrina blows through quickly so we can get it all going on.
I may even forego pineapples on the pizza Sunday night; I'm feeling so good about this.

Save room Saturday night for Tom's clam chowder! I may have to taper this week, too (even for the 5K!). I am aching everywhere:)

Pineapple on pizza has to be one of the greatest sins every created in the world of food. Its a total ABOMINATION!

Now anchovies are a different story...
