Brag about my awesome grandson.
This is my grandson, Joe. He's 15 years old and is a fitness freak. When he comes to visit grandpa's, whom he calls G-Pa, he likes to work out with me. Recently, he benched 230 lbs! A pretty good weight for a 130 lb kid who just turned 15. He wi... Read more
Traveling and training report, with pictures of runs.
When we were in Florence, SC I got in a nice 8M run. The roads were extremely flat and the scenery was nice. Only a few cars on the road as it was Saturday morning.

Heading south towards home in Florida
Tuesday we were in Big Meadows campground in Shenandoah Natl Forest. One of my favorite places to visit. We get to run in some beautiful areas. I did about 3.5 miles there.

Old Dog blazes to victory with a scorching new PR!
We're in our RV, staying at brother-in-laws home which is about 20 minutes from the race venue. This race was sponsored by Milford (CT) Hospital and was a fund raiser for the hospital's wellness education program.
We got up very early - at ... Read more
Mine Falls Race Report
Weather was much cooler than expected for this small event. It was through a park on dirt paths, not too many hills and nice scenery alongside a canal.
I didn't bring my cell phone with me, so I didn't get any pictures, except this one my son... Read more
Beautiful Day to Run.
We'll be in New Hamp;shire until Friday, when we will then head south to visit family in Connecticut.
Meanwhile, we are enjoying the brisk (read cold) NH weather mornings. There's a beautiful walking/running path right nearby, which we'v... Read more
Traveling north to New Hampshire.
We are taking our time getting up to New Hampshire, as usual. We like to take time and enjoy the trip.
Wifi is not often available, because I prefer the National Parks, or places which do not offer hookups.
Here, we are in Georgia at... Read more

This was a very small race held at Moss Park, Orlando, FL. We stayed overnight in our RV camper before the race. Here is a visitor to our campsite.
We were the first p... Read more
Weight gain not always a negative?
So to the point, I have this old bathroom scale, not a digital, the floating needle kind. Hard to notice small fluctuations. My usual weight is around 150-151. For many months, and before I started running. 150-151.
A few days ago, I ju... Read more
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
Remember to refuel on long runs!
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
Not feeling so great today.
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!
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
My old guy training coming along fine.
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
Trust your training.
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
