  1. RUN
    great Give 'N Gobble 10k 6.2 mi 01:22 13:15 pace

    Another PR! This one for the 10k distance! What a beautiful race here in Sherwood, OR! It was fun participating in it with my family (my 6-mos old niece PR'd too in a 5k walk. ;-)) The course ... read more

  2. RUN
    good Pre-race shakeout 1.82 mi 00:24 13:21 pace

    Love the 60F here! I hope it's like this or just slightly cooler Thursday. I may or may not run tomorrow, so this is at least one of my pre-race shakeout runs. As such, I kept it short and eas... read more

  3. RUN
    good Treadmill 3 mi

    Missed the morning, missed the afternoon, so ran on the treadmill in the evening instead. But the time I got to this I decided to run it as speed work since I hadn't done that in way too long.... read more

  4. RUN
    good Treadmill 1.25 mi

    Got a bit of a later start than I'd hoped, and it's already a busy morning, so this is what was done of my planned 2. Maybe I'll double up and get more in after my long work day. Sti... read more

  5. RUN
    good Run in the Snow 3.01 mi 00:42 13:56 pace

    Got a late start, but was treated to running in falling snow as a result. First of the season! Kept to the salted roads for the most part given the sidewalks were icy. Ran the roads that had the li... read more

  6. RUN
    good Neighborhood and Sports Fields 3 mi 00:45 14:52 pace

    Just an easy run in the cold and wind because I can't keep going on just sleep and work. I'll go nuts. Rushed home after my last (and 11th) meeting, grabbed the headlamp and headed out. I... read more

  7. walk
    good Work plazas walk 1 mi

    It's a 1/2 mile between two of our plazas at work -- the one I'm in, and the one with the company clinic where I opted to go get my flu shot today now that I'm race-free for a couple... read more

  8. RUN
    good Sunday Long Run 7.32 mi 02:00 16:25 pace

    Long run in the wind. Walked most of the last 1/2 mile as my legs were done. But I'm happy I made it as far as I did given it's only been a week since the half marathon! Amazing how much ... read more

  9. RUN
    good Neighborhood shakeout 2.39 mi 00:35 14:26 pace

    Just an easy shakeout run to get the legs moving again after Saturday's race. It felt great and I finally got to try out the headlamp I bought last year. It was just too nice this evening to r... read more

  10. RUN
    great Indianapolis Monumental Half ... 13.2 mi 02:59 13:31 pace

    Indianapolis Monumental Half Marathon. Official time: 2:58:36. OMG, I'm going to have a pick a new 2015 running goal because I accomplished it a bit early! In all the cold and wind I achieved ... read more

  11. RUN
    good Treadmill 1 mi 00:12:13 12:13 pace

    I only had 25 minutes this morning before work, and in case this is the only chance I get during this crazy week to not be a weekend warrior before my race on Saturday, I spent it running a mile to... read more

  12. walk
    good Fox River Trail 2.69 mi

    BF and I decided to check out Geneva and part of the Fox River Trail this afternoon. Beautiful day!

  13. RUN
    great Neighborhood and Forest Preserve 4.55 mi 01:21 17:42 pace

    Part 2! Maybe I was excited about my earlier PR, or perhaps I'm just used to running longer now. But after rolling and refueling, I just felt the need to get out there and enjoy the day some m... read more

  14. RUN
    great Halloween Hustle 5k 3.14 mi 00:37 11:37 pace

    Two letters - PR! I was aiming for a sub-37 as that would ensure a slightly over one minute PR, but I did it by over 90 seconds (98 to be exact!) Woot! There's hope for me yet! Haha! What a be... read more

  15. VELO
    good North shore bike path 13.63 mi 01:24 9.8mph pace

    BF and I decided to check out the north shore bike path, including the recently opened connection along the Eastern Subcontinental Divide. It was beautiful, but a bit chilly!

  16. RUN
    great Wherever the Trees and Path w... 7.47 mi 01:42 13:35 pace

    Picked a hilly route with lots of trees so I could enjoy the falling leaves in the rain. I did not think about slipping on them until I was out there. I didn't slip though. I did have a mile w... read more

  17. walk
    Chicago Marathon Volunteering 3 mi

    Estimated distance of walking around the city of Chicago while volunteering at aid station 1 and spectating at mile 12 once we were done during the Chicago Marathon. It was a good way to shake out ... read more

  18. RUN
    good Prairie State Half Marathon 13.19 mi 03:09 14:21 pace

    What a beautiful day and a beautiful course! I came within seconds of a PR (29 to be exact), but I wasn't really trying for the PR. Given I signed up for this race on Thursday, and kept it a s... read more

  19. RUN
    good Neighborhood 1 mi 00:14:20 14:20 pace

    A quick neighborhood shoe test before sunset to be sure I set the insoles right.

  20. RUN
    good Neighborhood and Sports Fields 3.28 mi 00:48 14:33 pace

    This 5.27k therapy run was (I'm guessing) far better than spending 5.28k on actual therapy. It certainly was far more fun and much easier on the pocketbook! I also treated this run as a tempo ... read more
