Day 76 - Lack of sleep costs

I'd only managed to run 12 miles by 5 pm today after 2 big Tactical Snoozes. Last night's lack of sleep, caused by being kept awake by a barking dog in the middle of nowhere, has cost me today. I did go on to run 23 miles in total. I'm now hoping to get 8 hours sleep before tomorrow. It's so warm that getting a decent nap may be tough. 

I'm still on course to leave Illinois and reach Indiana on Sunday. The required run rate is now 37 miles per day. I hope to get the blog bang up to date on Sunday. The precious hours over the next few days have to be spent either running, sleeping or eating.
