WHATS EATING J.T.??

Thanks to Mike, Chris, Suzanne, Dave, and Betty for the company on Saturday as I finished off the week with a long trail run. Ran with the group for about 7 miles and then finished off my 12 miler at North Chagrin on my own. Great run... Awesome day.

Just spectacular weather. Met the weekly goal of mileage and weight workouts.
This week will see me get a long run in of 14 miles. My son, Patrick tuned up for his 30th birthday run of 30 miles by cranking out an 18 miler, from North Chagrin to Chardon. He is stoked.
I am starting this eating program modeled after the book "Clean Eating" by Tosca Reno. Nothing revolutionary about the program, but I think its much needed. Could stand to lose 15 lbs and know that will make a difference in my quest to jump from the Ultra distance of 50 Kilometers..to 50 miles. The Bride really wants me to lose the weight so I will snore less!!! LOL!!
Found this little gem on the internet and thought I would share with it with you. 3:01:50 at the Boston Marathon. The man has one leg. Amazing.

Cavs blew by the Pistons in 4 games and now wait to see whom they will face in round 2. Browns drafted 8 guys and got 3 players from the Jets. They need bodies.
Signing off for now. The weather is gorgeous and its crazy being inside.
Life's a Blast

LMAO! I don't blame the bride! Mr McG is the worst snorer ever! GAH!

15 pounds would be a fair bit of time in an event of that length. Rough convention wisdon says 2 secs/mile/pound. So...30 secs/mile for 15 pounds, and on a 50-miler is roughly 25 minutes....free. :)

Great.
Sounds like training is going well and you're adding the clean eating element. Good for you.
Good luck with trimming down.

will you be posting before and after stats/pics?

Good luck with the slim down. This is a perfect time of year for it.

Let's just pencil the Cavs and Lakers in the finals already, shall we? Should be a fun series.

I'm (re)focusing on my diet, too... too many trips to the co worker's candy dish! I'm 5 feet tall so 5 lbs shows up easily on me -- BOO ! it's a tough balance to eat enough to fuel and still lose weight.

She & the program are amazing! You will love the clean eating plan. I lost 15 pounds this past year following her plan. Way to go.

Hate to say it, but it looks like she had a boob job too to go along with the weight loss. Maybe it was a wash on the weight loss, then?
