  1. RUN
    good Cold Run with the Wife... 6.03 mi 00:49 08:02 pace

    Considering I hadn't run in two weeks (wow! I didn't realize it's been that long), and it was 30 degrees out....things went pretty good. Not looking forward to the winter running, bu... read more

  2. RUN
    good Neighborhood Run.... 5.01 mi 00:40 07:59 pace

    Ran 3 miles with Sarah, then 2 more alone after Sarah was done. A little cool....kind of windy....had trouble breathing. Hope it goes away before next weekend.

  3. RUN
    good Neighborhood Run.... 7.5 mi 01:01 08:06 pace

    Nice temperatures for a late morning run (about 46 degrees). I gotta get some gloves, though---hands were COLD!

    good Monday Morning Seven.... 7 mi 00:57 08:05 pace

    Nice morning for a run....felt pretty strong! Love when that happens...

  5. RUN
    great Sunday Five... 5.12 mi 00:40 07:51 pace

    My first run since the Urbanathlon 8 days ago. Stuff got in the way. I felt better than I thought I would for not having run in eight days. Not having a marathon to train for gives me the leisure o... read more

  6. RUN
    good 2014 Men's Health Urbanathlon... 10.06 mi 01:38 09:41 pace

    This was a fun event, one I've been wanting to do for a few years now. The weather was quite chilly, but once I got going, it was tolerable. 10 miles, with 14 obstacles (monkey bars, Marine hu... read more

  7. FIT
    Chest & Back.... 00:25

    My first activity of any kind since the Chicago Marathon. I just wanted to get back into the swing of things, so I did a real quick chest & back workout, and followed it up with a 3-mile run on... read more

  8. RUN
    good Short TM Miles.... 3 mi 00:26 08:42 pace

    Followed up the quick weight session with a few miles.......my first run since the Chicago Marathon this past Sunday. Took it nice and easy since I just came off the marathon, and I have the Urbana... read more

    alright 2014 Chicago Marathon 26.2 mi 03:59 09:06 pace

    It was a beautiful day temperature-wise for a marathon. The spectators and volunteers were awesome! I just wish I could have had the race I really wanted. I was slowed down by leg cramps (again), t... read more

      Congrats on another marathon finish Derek. The marathon is such a humbling race. You'll get your goal. Nice work pushing to stay under 4 yesterday. And way to keep smiling. Even in pain, you had a great smile on your face. So fun seeing you!

    Stayin' loose... 2.01 mi 00:20 10:00 pace

    Just a really easy 2-miler to stay loose for tomorrow's Chicago Marathon. I'm hoping for a good day of running tomorrow morning.

  11. RUN
    good Easy Four... 4.01 mi 00:35 08:36 pace

    Just a few miles to stay loose on marathon week....

  12. RUN
    alright Easy Three... 3.01 mi 00:27 08:49 pace

    Just a nice, easy 3-miler. I remembered the big picture---respect the taper. Didn't like the constant wind. Felt a little sluggish and heavy. I'll chalk it up to needing a better night&#x... read more

  13. RUN
    good Saturday 8-Miler.... 8.01 mi 01:04 07:58 pace

    I ran with Sarah today for a planned 8-mile run, and I let her dictate the pace. I wasn't expecting her to go out as fast as she did. She has definitely gotten faster. The pace slowed down at ... read more

  14. RUN
    good TM Run w/Intervals... 5 mi 00:40 07:55 pace

    First run of the month. Added some intervals to my TM run to break up the monotony that is tapering.

  15. RUN
    great TM Miles... 4.54 mi 00:38 08:20 pace

    Last run of the month, had to go inside due to crappy weather. Threw in some inclines every 1/2 mile or so, just to add a little variety in the run. I wanted to get an even monthly total....hence t... read more

  16. RUN
    good Sunday Long Run... 12.11 mi 01:42 08:27 pace

    Week 16 is in the books. My last double-digit run before the marathon in two weeks. Found a nice, comfortable pace and went with it. And since I couldn't run on Saturday, this Sunday run is de... read more

  17. RUN
    good Make-Up Miles.... 8.01 mi 01:10 08:45 pace

    Today was supposed to be a rest day. But since I did not run Wed or Thu, I had to play catch up today. Just a nice easy run, on a beautiful evening.

  18. RUN
    good Recovery Run.... 5.01 mi 00:43 08:38 pace

    I took yesterday off after my 20 on Sunday. My quads were sore all of yesterday, and that first mile felt slow, like I was working the kinks out. This was definitely a recovery run, and I feel a li... read more

  19. RUN
    good Magellan Ready To Run 20 Mile... 20.28 mi 02:51 08:26 pace

    My second 20-miler, and my last long run before the marathon in 21 days. We had great running weather this morning, and I was glad to be running with a group for this 20, it made the miles seem to ... read more

    good Friday Ten... 10 mi 01:25 08:32 pace

    Knowing I have a longer run on Sunday, I took this one easy until the last mile. Another beautiful day for a run, and I encountered more friendly people on this run than I can ever remember. Seems ... read more
