    Great run today. Thanks Coach Jose for finding that route. I enjoyed it. And also for marking the course so clearly so nobody got lost, and for bringing the post run refreshments. Thanks to Joy too for the great aid station, and for always cheering us on.

    I was dreading the 8 miler, but with all of your preparation, it was an enjoyable run.
