  1. RUN
    good 14.6 mi 02:18 09:27 pace

    Ran to Mall of America this afternoon. It was a bit chilly (it snowed last night) but the sun came out and really warmed things up. My lower back hurt near the end. I'm still out of shape, but... read more

  2. RUN
    good 4.2 mi 00:33 07:57 pace

    Another beautiful day to run outside. This new route goes by Minnehaha Falls, across the Mississippi River, and ends up at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant in south St. Paul. I also came across a... read more

  3. RUN
    good 15.01 mi 02:23 09:31 pace

    I think I overdid it a little bit today. I didn't realize Lake Calhoun was over 6 miles away. I wanted to run around it, which I did, but got lost coming back and was tired because I had no fo... read more

  4. RUN
    good 5.93 mi 00:51 08:36 pace

    Spring has finally sprung! Another beautiful day here in the Twin Cities. It's in the mid 50s, but it feels warmer than that. Lots of snow melted over the last two days and we can see the grou... read more

  5. RUN
    good 6.26 mi 00:59 09:20 pace

    First timed workout in forever. I was reminded that I'm a little out of shape. There's still lots of snow on the ground here in Minneapolis, but made my run around Lake Nokomis even more ... read more

  6. RUN
    good 5.89 mi

    My first run in a couple of months. We just moved to Minneapolis too. I'm getting to know the city pretty well, and running's a great way to do it! It's colder and snowier up here, b... read more

  7. RUN
    good To Polaris Pkwy and Back 3.65 mi

    Just another quick run. No time again. I'm starting to like my no-time runs. Less stressful and I can concentrate on running techniques and form.

  8. swim
    good 1000 m

    Pool workout with Jason at the RPAC. Nice 'n easy, 100 meters at a time, rotating between freestyle and breaststroke every 25 meters.

  9. RUN
    good To 161 in downtown Worthington 6.8 mi

    I'm actually beginning to like running in this snowy, cold weather. I had so much fun that I forgot to time myself. Which is fine. My thoughts are elsewhere instead of my time. At least I have... read more

  10. RUN
    good To Orange Rd and back on PP 6.95 mi 00:58 08:17 pace

    COLD! I didn't want to get out my warm bed, but I also don't want a fat belly. So I forced myself to brace the cold winds, snow, ice, and heavy traffic. I think it was worth it.

  11. RUN
    good To Polaris Pkwy and Back 3.65 mi 00:30 08:11 pace

    Seriously, this was my first attempt to run since the marathon 6 weeks ago! I have been lazy (busy too) and not been eating very good, partly because I couldn't afford to do either during mara... read more

  12. RUN
    good 26.65 mi 04:01 09:03 pace

    My official time for the 2013 Columbus Marathon! Better than last year at 4:24. I was on pace to finish between 3:30-3:35, but I got sick at miles 17-20, slowing me down a lot. I recovered as best ... read more

  13. RUN
    good Around the Polaris Mall 5.33 mi

    5 miles at 5 am. No one on the streets. It was extremely peaceful and calm. Last run before the big race on Sunday. Maybe 1 mile on Saturday, but that's it. No more training. I think I'm ... read more

  14. RUN
    good Sharon Woods 3.83 mi

    Ran with Jason in Sharon Woods. Super easy. NO pains or aches at all. It was nice to see the autumn colors and smell the fall aroma. No busy streets like usual or exhaust fumes. This park is amazing.

  15. RUN
    great To Polaris Pkwy and Back 3.65 mi 00:28 07:36 pace

    Fun run in the sun. Nice 'n easy. Great fall day to bask in all the colors, smells, and foods. One week until the Columbus marathon!

  16. RUN
    great To Polaris Pkwy and Back 3.65 mi 00:25 06:58 pace

    Fast night run. Yes, it's taper week (and next), but I just had to move it along today. I'm feeling pretty good and energized for the marathon. Just 10 days away!

  17. RUN
    good To Polaris Pkwy and Back 3.65 mi 00:28 07:37 pace

    It's tapering time! It's actually brisk and cool today. Perfect running temperature. Right around 50 degrees. Couldn't ask for better conditions to taper. Also, no problems with my s... read more

  18. RUN
    11.66 mi 01:36 08:13 pace

    Early morning run to Lane and High, and I did exceptionally well on the way down, arriving there in 1:13, but as I made my way back my left shin started giving all kinds of problems. It was so unbe... read more

  19. RUN
    great To Polaris Pkwy and Back 3.65 mi 00:26 07:08 pace

    My fastest time for this route. I made sure I recovered well since last Wednesday's long and painful (at the end) run. I think I found the problem I had that run: energy shots. My body has nev... read more

  20. RUN
    blah 18 mile belt around Westerville 17.76 mi 02:45 09:17 pace

    Late start tonight, and I felt awful at the end. I threw up when I got home. I'm not sure what happened. I haven't felt nauseous in a long time. It's something I need to correct. Eve... read more
