Total 37.50 miles 

Week 8 of 13 on my way to the MCM is in the books...I also hit 112 miles for the month with a few more big running days to go.  I'm hoping the "come back" is near complete.  I'm also hoping I can start to ween myself off the knee support strap. 

Saturdays long run was run along The Ohio & Erie Canal and Towpath Trail in and around Cleveland, Ohio.  The Towpath trail is an important piece of Ohio history.  The canal and trail was originally 309 miles long and constructed in 7 years—from 1825 from 1832. Today it is a great multi-use trail system for walkers, runners and bikers.

Week 9 on the road to the MCM is also a big week for 206 other reasons.  this Friday (28 Sept) at 0615 Team Enofuse will take on the Colonial 200 mile relay.  I'm one of six runners who will tackle the road and long hours that will take us from Albemarle County in central Virginia to historic Jamestown settlement. 

All of our runners and support crews are social media junkies so be sure to follow our adventures at #colonial200 and all our twitter and social media handles. 


Wish us luck and follow us through out the weekend....we will be posting updates and pictures as we go!
