March 4th, 11.15 miles.
Since then, I've ran 6 more times ranging from 3.5 to 6.5 miles. I'm thinking I'll do fine, it's just the mental thing about running 10 miles in a race without my iPod.

I have a 10 miler coming up in May, and I suspect my training will be a little lacking. I am having a hard time fitting everything in during the week and with uncooperative weather it has been easy to skip the runs.
Thanks Pam, I'm gonna try to take it easy and just have fun.
I agree with the weather being uncooperative- it seems to rain only when I have the free time for a run.
I've also have had some lower back fatigue for the past week or so. It's from being hunched over working the roto rooter machine from a couple of weekends ago and that has cut short my runs- kinda worried it will affect this weekend's race.
