    Five of us showed up for this morning's run. This was my first run in nine days. I was sick last week with a stomach bug. I was really concerned that my running would be set back, but I do ... read more

    alright Morning Run 3.01 mi 00:27 09:08 pace

    Still pretty sore from Saturday's run and all of the yardwork this weekend. Took it easy.

  4. RUN
    good Timber Drive 8.01 mi 01:09 08:33 pace

    Met the fellas' for an 8-miler. I was amazed at how great I feel just 6 days after the marathon. Timber drive really seemed hilly after running ATT. It's a beautiful day out there!

    alright Tobacco Road Marathon 26.2 mi 04:23 10:01 pace

    Not as good as I was hoping for, but I shaved 7 minutes off of my old PR. Great course, well run race, and beautiful weather! I saw that Amy was the 4:30 pacer, so I kept telling myself, just don... read more

    great Aversboro Run Club 3 mi 00:26 08:43 pace

    What a great night weather wise! Did a warm-up mile, then sped up to just comfortably fast. Seemed effortless. I hope I feel just as good on Sunday. 9:30, 8:31, 8:18.

    good White Deer Park 3.01 mi 00:26 08:47 pace

    Lovin' this weather! Took it easy, just staying loose for Sunday's marathon. 9:00, 8:51, 8:35. I think I need a new HR monitor. I tried a new battery, but no luck. Either that, or I ... read more

    good Neuse River Trail 8.59 mi 01:20 09:20 pace

    Ran out 5 miles at under 9:00 min pace. Took a one minute walk break at the turn-around, and just cruised back at a leisurely pace. Garmin died on the way back in.

    good Neuse River Trail 13.36 mi 02:06 09:26 pace

    Windy, hilly, and icy, oh my! I really did not want to get up and go out to do this run. However, if you sweat in practice, you won't bleed in battle.

  12. RUN
    good Pre-blizzard run 6.01 mi 00:52 08:38 pace

    Felt great tonight. Could've run further and/or faster. Got done just as the rain started. Last mile was the fastest at 8:22.

  13. RUN
    great Timber Drive 5 mi 00:46 09:14 pace

    Ran the hills of Timber Drive with Kelly S. We got done before the temps dropped. Always great to have a friend in town!

    blah Neuse River Trail 15 mi 02:41 10:44 pace

    Wore my trail shoes for the ice, and didn't realize how uncomfortable they would become. I have only worn them on single track before. I ran 10 miles, and then ran/walked the last 5. Mainly... read more

      Be careful out there! I came across a couple icy patches I gingerly walked across. Why did your trail shoes become uncomfortable?

      They are great for dirt trails, mud, running over rocks and roots and such. Neuse River Trail is actually asphalt, so that, along with the ice was the issue. Those shoes are stiffer with less cushioning.

      Well great miles Brad and yeah I say your body will appreciate the rest and/or maybe some cross-training. Good for you for listening to your body.

    good Double Dippin' in Dallas 2.01 mi 00:18 08:44 pace

    Second run today. Wanted to clear my head a little from a full day of training, and burn off some calories from lunch and supper. 9:04, 9:25. A beautiful evening out here in Dallas.
