  1. RUN
    Mount Vernon Trail 3.34 mi 00:33 09:57 pace

    Shaking cobwebs out before MCM. Bruised left instep, tight right hamstring and IT band. Felt a little better emotionally afterwards but tomorrow is a crap shoot.

  2. RUN
    tired Hopewell 3.4 mi 00:32 09:18 pace

    Little sleep this week but wanted to get in a short run before leaving for MCM.

  3. RUN
    great Town 5.01 mi 00:47 09:18 pace

    Just another super good running morning. Five days to MCM

  4. RUN
    great Coldbook 10k 6.22 mi 00:55 08:48 pace

    Blustery but sunny day at a fast pace, beating previous 10k record - 9:00, 8:40, 8:57, 8:45, 8:52, 8:41. This is definitely the last day for these shoes!

  5. RUN

    Easy long run with sprint at end

  6. RUN
    great Founders Hill 5.08 mi 00:50 09:54 pace

    Up Founders to Chestnut, back to Brittany and return to Rotary so not too many hills. Pace was quick but several walk breaks for John. Last mile alone at 8:58. Warm, rainy day for October.

  7. RUN
    good Hubbard Street 4.07 mi 00:39 09:37 pace

    Legs a little tight but overall - fantastic!

  8. RUN
    great Chicago Marathon 26.2 mi 04:06 09:23 pace

    I went out with a goal of 4:30 which would be over a minute per mile PR but I totally crushed the course. It was a perfect weather day and I felt great at the start. Lots of dodging people in the ... read more

  9. RUN
    Lakeshore Drive, Chicago 3.04 mi 00:31 10:13 pace

    Shaking off the cobwebs before tomorrow. Left knee and calf a little sore.

  10. RUN
    tired Coldbrook 4.33 mi 00:41 09:31 pace

    Easy last run before Chicago. Tired, sad and lonely.

  11. RUN
    injured Fox Den/Hopewell 3.11 mi 00:33 10:32 pace

    Slow run to shake out the cobwebs. Left calf very tight and sore.

  12. RUN
    great Coldbrook 6.26 mi 00:56 08:56 pace

    Another PR - crushed the hour mark for a 10K. Only really pushed hard during the last mile, the rest of the run was fairly comfortable. Gorgeous weather. 9:02, 9:00, 9:23 (up hill), 8:55, 8:49, 8:... read more

  13. RUN
    great Hamden bike path 7.01 mi 01:14 10:35 pace

    Easy taper run but gave in to the impulse to sprint the last mile - 7:55 pace - a new record!

  17. RUN
    great Coldbrook 5 mi 00:44 08:50 pace

    This was supposed to be a recovery run but I felt so good that I really pushed it, shaving over two minutes off my best run at this distance. Splits - 9:09, 8:50, 8:55:, 8:40, 8:39.
