  1. RUN
    Marion 10 mi 01:26 08:36 pace

    I ran 3 miles, met Kenya, Wayne, and Jenna for 5 miles, then did a mile home and a mile with Windy. My watch died close to 7 miles into the run so I estimated the last 3 miles. Splits: 9:06, 9:13, ... read more

  2. RUN
    Cooldown 1.01 mi 00:08:56 08:50 pace

    Got home and ran a mile with Windy. I think my arm got more of a workout!!

  3. RUN
    Speedwork 5.29 mi 00:42 07:55 pace

    Ran my first 800m speed session for this round of training today. Kenya joined me too! These were hard but it wouldn't be speedwork if they weren't!! 800 splits: 3:12, 3:15, 3:19, 3:14

  4. RUN
    Rainy Run 4 mi 00:37 09:18 pace

    The original plan for today was to run trails with a couple of friends. When the rain wouldn't stop we decided that would be a bad idea for fear of falling. I kept waiting for the rain to let ... read more

  5. RUN
    Refuge 14.06 mi 01:59 08:29 pace

    Large group for this awesome run! It was chilly but sunny. I never really looked at the watch and we ran a trail for a mile or so and slowed toward the end to stay together but overall I think it w... read more

  6. RUN
    Marion/Spillertown 7.2 mi 01:04 08:53 pace

    Ran my new favorite loop from home but I did it backwards from last week. I think this way has more uphills.. I just wanted an easy run because I knew my legs were tired. Never looked at the watch ... read more

  7. RUN
    Fartleks 6 mi 00:48 07:59 pace

    Ran fartleks with Matt, Kenya, and Jenna. We ran according to the light posts but varied the amount of posts. We did a mile warm, 3 miles of farleks, and I ran 2 miles cool. Slits: 8:38 (warm), 7:3... read more

  8. RUN
    Warmup 2.05 mi 00:18 08:40 pace

    I ran an easy warmup before our fartlek workout.

  9. RUN
    Marion 7 mi 00:57 08:09 pace

    Pretty good run with Kenya! I ran almost 2 miles to meet her, we ran 4 together, then I ran home. This pace is getting more and more comfortable. Splits: 8:34, 8:13, 8:10, 7:54, 8:20, 7:55, 7:54

  10. RUN
    Foster Lane Hills 6.06 mi 00:49 08:03 pace

    Because it's a "holiday" (and I put that into quotations not as disrespect to MLK but because who really gets this day off?? LOL) a lot of my friends had the day off so we had a big ... read more

  12. RUN
    Refuge with Windy 4.01 mi 00:36 09:03 pace

    I convinced Kevin to go to the refuge with Windy and me. He drove around while we ran. Got 4 miles exactly when we met at the parking lot where Kevin would pick us up. It was BEAUTIFUL out there to... read more

    Carbondale 13.04 mi 01:47 08:11 pace

    Let me start this by telling you about last night.. I got in bed really early because I didn't get a nap and I was excited to get a good night's rest.. I tried to roll over on my side and... read more

    Refuge Plus 6.01 mi 00:51 08:29 pace

    I ran right after work (why don't I do that more often??) and the weather was perfect! We had snow this morning but then the sun came out, it warmed up, and most of the snow was gone by noon. ... read more

  15. RUN
    Wolf Creek Hills 5.01 mi 00:40 08:03 pace

    Spillertown Loopty Loo 7.01 mi 01:01 08:39 pace

    Unmotivated today because it's Monday and yucky weather. Finally made it out the door and had a great run! I've ran on all of these roads before but never this loop. I liked it and the mi... read more

    Carterville 7.01 mi 00:57 08:09 pace

    I met my friend Stephanie for a Sunday morning run. Stephanie had a baby in September and is coming back strong. We don't get to run together that much so I enjoyed catching up. Plus I got to ... read more

    Cannon Park 12.2 mi 01:42 08:20 pace
