I have a few minutes of peace and quiet and I just realized that last Saturday I ran the last race I had scheduled for the season. It feels sort of weird, like "Now, what do I do?" This season I did not meet my goal of a sub30, in fact I r... Read more

33:10 It was a good run for me. I did very little walking this race. I am such a lazy runner at times. Part of the route was on an overpass and coming back I just did not want to run up the thing. I seriously need to add hill workouts to my rout... Read more

I have 3 5k's left to do that I have signed up for this year. Last year, I wanted to run a sub30 5k and put forth a huge effort to to attain that goal. The closest I got to it was 30:23. Next week, I'll be running that same route. Last win... Read more
