"Is it not strange that desire should so many years outlive performance." -Shakespeare, 2 Henry IV 3.4.283

What a great quote.
We put in a 5 miler this afternoon.  It was a tough run, and as much as my mind was in it, the body just wasn't cooperating.  We were hitting on just over 8 minute pace, which I guess isn't so bad considering the heat.  We didn't realize how hot it was in the sun until we were a couple miles into it.  It was blazing hot -- not a good addition for these already tired and stressed runners.  It's always interesting training for a marathon when you've already been through one for the day running a 3 kid household!  Ah, we'll just blame the heat and be back for more tomorrow :)
