Thursday, June 12, 2014      21 comments

Enjoyed a good more-than-an-hour elliptical workout at the YMCA yesterday. A lot of it I did at 180 to 190 strides per minute, so I was moving. I didn't have kids yesterday, but I had run the day before with friends, so I didn't want the impact ... Read more

I just wrote a 5 paragraph race report and lost it. Maybe it was more than I needed to say anyway. EDIT: I didn't lose it! Now both showed up. The first one is more complete. Or just get the essence here: Bottom line, I did much better... Read more

Probably will have pictures later today, but let me just tell you. As expected, it was pretty hot and humid. I'm guessing 75 degrees at the start and rising with 95% humidity. That's what it felt like anyway. The course is one I run often, prett... Read more

I read something this morning on facebook that stuck with me. It said something to the effect that no race ever started at the start line. Isn't that the truth? The race is just the culmination of the training. My race on Saturday the 7th ... Read more
