An easy 6.0 mile run on the treadmill tonight. Because it was like a monsoon outside this evening.

Meanwhile, the RDX seems to be getting lots of coverage lately. Looks like Acura is adding the SUV to their line of models that can get the A-SPEC trim (their "sporty" line - similar to M for BMW or AMG for MB).

I guess since I'm an Acura owner now I should start paying attention to what they are doing in motorsports? It helps that I was already a fan of Penske racing and Castroneves.

Still learning the interfaces in my new Acura. Overall I'm finding things pretty intuitive and easy to use. Interesting to see how they are working on future iterations and what kind of considerations go into interface design.

Just sharing a few pics I snapped of the new Acura earlier today. I've always tended to just like plain black interiors, but this one came with Espresso (you can see some of it in some of the interior shots) which I keep calling chocolate. Not sure why, but it really struck a chord with me. The little chrome bits at the corners keep surprising me though because I keep thinking they are damage to the car, then I realize they are just trim!

Restless night last and a blister on a toe had me wishing I did not have to run this morning. But then I remembered thinking yesterday that all the sucky runs in Jan and Feb were starting to pay off. So off I went.

Got in 16.5 miles. Really struggled the last 3 - 5 miles. In context and with these being as I closed in on 49 for the week - I'm ok with it. My toe not so much as it is a hot, ugly mess.

Mixed emotions day yesterday. Ended up getting rid of the MINI Cooper. Great car and lots of fun times, but with the high miles and age the repairs were getting to be overwhelming and quite extensive. Add in the loss of access to a garage where I could do my own work and I was in a bad spot to keep it.

Now rocking a new Acura TLX. Felt like I did a decent job negotiating a lease, which I've never done before. Definitely more power, more luxurious ride, and lots of creature comforts. Obviously giving up lots in handling and I'll miss the manual transmission (I still keep going for the shifter). Overall, better choice for where I find myself now.

This was on the long side for a Saturday run. Still felt good though and kept up a good pace for the whole 10.0 miles. Will see how this many miles impacts tomorrow's long run.

Also got to explore new roads. That means new hills to overcome. For this route I do have to run just over a mile on a big 4-lane highway. People were good about giving me room but still did not like it. By getting past the Haw River, it opens up lots of country roads for me.

Late work meeting meant a very late workout. Hit the treadmill again and got in a solid 14.1 mile run that included some tempo intervals. Still not as fast as I was last year, but closing in. Need to get myself to the mental place where I can maintain this pace on my own on the road.

One expected delivery and one surprise. Did not know the shirt had shipped. Ordered it specifically for the upcoming Devil Dog Double race.

For shoes, gonna give Brooks a try with some Ghost 10 shoes. Felt like running on spring filled pillows tonight. Will see how they work out as the miles rack up.

Tonight's run was just a quick 5K.
