Registered for my first Marathon.

Finally bit the bullet and registered for a full Marathon. It will be the Rock N Roll Savannah Marathon in November of this year. I like the idea of a large event for a first timer. I may even use a pace group to help me out. Being such a huge e... Read more

Got our race packets last night and gotta admit, we were like little kids, pinning DWs first number on her new running shirt. She'd had about a month of training and was ready to run. Well ready to finish anyway. I think we were more excit... Read more

Had a wonderful time with the grandkids last Tuesday and Wednesday. They both were entered in a GNCC motorcycle race. My oldest DGS had problems with the bike and was unable to finish! Read more

HM number 2 was easier.

Had some second thoughts as I typed my title, 'cuz these thing aren't easy at all. Like everything else in life, it's all relative. So, it was easier than HM1, but I still felt the pain and exhaustion. If I didn't have my trusty Timex Ironman wa... Read more

I have discovered much of the information available to us runners does not apply to older runners. The schedules, race time predictors are skewed for younger runners. Perhaps the small number of runners over the age of 60 makes us such a small s... Read more

Finished the Wekiwa Springs Real Florida 10K race this morning. A few things suggested that I not pursue a PR on this race. Too soon after my first half marathon, and another - my back was a bit sore AGAIN this morning. I took it easy trai... Read more

DW showing interest in running.

We did a 20 minute walk/run yesterday. The very first step in the Couch to 5K (C25K) program. DW is actually in very good shape, but lacks confidence due to having an MI a few years ago. Cardiologist says she will do fine, as long as she keeps i... Read more

Taking it easy.

Not really enjoying the post HM rest period. But, I am using this time to do a bit more strenuous weight lifting. When preparing for a race, I don't hit the weights very hard, so this is a good time to work out the upper body a little more vigor... Read more

It rained all night, so it was difficult sleeping. Woke up at 6AM had oatmeal w/raisins and water for breakfast. Unhooked the camper and headed to the race at 6:30, arrived plenty early to get my packet and instructions. Read more

I think I'm as ready as I'm going to be. Loaded up on carbs yesterday, and will go a bit lighter today but still take in plenty of carbs - drink lots of water and do my stretching and just take it easy. I'm a little concerned about fading... Read more

New PR for 5K = Bling and a hug!

Did a 5K this morning. My lower back has been sore lately so I was a bit worried about how I would do. Didn't seem to matter much, 'cuz I made a PR with a time of 26:47 and placed 2nd in my age group. Read more

Went to visit my daughter and grandkids for a few days. Returned home yesterday. I did 3 straight days of running and a couple days light lifting during my stay. My 15 year old grandson (benches 225!) has a nice set of free weights, but I don'... Read more

So, I just got back from a great run, after a nice days rest yesterday. The weather is so nice in Florida, It was probably in the high 50s when I started - bright sunshine, since I got a later than usual start. I did a slow 3.1m at a 2/1 run/wal... Read more
