Great run this week: 8 miles at a 10:10 pace. Perhaps it was the rum waiting for us?
Something I noticed is that we talk a little then leave on the usual week, but Cocktail Sunday keeps us standing around talking all day. Nice!
We usually hear about marathoners keeling over, but Detroit lost three half-marathon runners.

DETROIT – Autopsies are expected after three half-marathoners died during the Detroit marathon.
Officials say 36-year-old Daniel Langdon collapsed at about 9:02 a.m. Sunday between the 11- and 12-mile markers and 65-year-old Rick Brown collapsed at 9:17 a.m., near where Langdon went down.
If you feel a little funny, talk to your doctor.
Officials say 26-year-old Jon Fenlon collapsed at about 9:18 a.m., just after finishing the 13.1-mile half-marathon in 1:53:37.
Autopsies are planned for Monday.
Rich Harshbarger, vice president of consumer marketing for the Detroit Media Partnership, told the Detroit Free Press emergency personnel were on the scene within seconds.
More than 19,000 people were registered to participate in the 32nd Detroit Free Press/Flagstar Marathon.
