Well, I did my 16 long slow miles today, the humidity was through the roof, but only got to 85 degrees before I finished. 16.03 M to be exact. At the completion of the run, I had severe leg cramps. Even after icing down, and massaging, the ... Read more

Today I was scheduled to run 11 miles. I miscalculated where I would be at the 11 mile mark, and was more than a mile away from home at the 11 mile mark. Doing math can be a little tough when you're tired. :) Anyway, I ended up doing 12.3 miles... Read more

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
