18.8 miles this morning

6 more weekends before the race and I've completed three big runs so far - 17, 18.5 and 18.8 this morning. Extending my run beyond Quito on Highway 9, all the way until N Santa Cruz Ave, gave me that extra hill (check elevation between mile 10 & 11, turn it on in the left-side control panel) I was looking last weekend. I plan to do 3 more long runs (at least one closer to 22) over next 5 weeks and then taper down. Here are some reasons I posted earlier on the importance of tapering.

In between, I'll continue tempo runs and hills at Rancho.
