  1. RUN
    good Six in the Snow 6 mi 01:04 10:35 pace

    Light snow falling but the roads were pretty clear and the temp was just above freezing so it wasn't slippy. There's also a good coating of grit from the sand/gravel trucks to provide co... read more

  2. RUN
    good Records Falling Everywhere 3 mi

    A lot of records got broken on this run. No, I wasn't unusually fast. Someone must have been taking a stack of records someplace in the back of a pickup truck and didn't realize that th... read more

  3. RUN
    good The Four Tops 4 mi 00:42 10:29 pace

    Knee was feeling pretty good this morning and I really wanted to run, so I opted to not take an extra DOR. My vow was to take it slow. Got a little speed happy in the second mile, but ratcheted it... read more

  4. RUN
    good Hello Treadmill 4 mi

    Runs are my therapy these days and even though my knee was hurting, my need to run was strong. F. had soccer practice and I didn't have any errands that needed doing, so it seemed like a good... read more

  5. RUN
    good Get To The Point (And Back) 4.28 mi 00:43 10:03 pace

    Strange and lovely weather this morning. Mix of bright sun and heavy clouds and every so often the softest steady rain would fall. It looked like passing summer storms, but the temps in the upper... read more

  6. RUN
    good The Good Ferry 5.7 mi 00:59 10:19 pace

    I didn't think I'd get a birthday run in, but when David zonked out on the couch for a nap, I decided to get in a quick run. It felt so good to be out there moving. It's been a har... read more

  7. RUN
    good Get To The Point (And Back) 4.28 mi 00:48 11:09 pace

    Ooo, I needed this run. I was feeling cooped up from a week without runs - thanks to a very busy schedule and cruddy weather. And I was craving an escape from all the work to care for DGB and ser... read more

      So did you work out all those little stabilizer muscles staying vertical, then?! I'm glad you got to do this, weather and all.

  8. RUN
    good Speedy McSpeedpants 3 mi 00:27 08:57 pace

    Huh. Felt great and ended up going wicked fast without really meaning to. Afternoon run, so the full tank of fuel likely helped. Temps in the mid 40s, so that helped too. Love the high from a f... read more

  9. RUN
    good Cross Road with Chris 4.1 mi 00:45 10:52 pace

    This run passed in a blur. A familiar route + good conversation about Thanksgiving meals (past and present) and Christmas gift shopping = enjoyable run.

  10. RUN
    good Layer Upon Layer 4 mi 00:42 10:26 pace

    Brrr. Around 20 degrees when I headed out the door. Lots of layers on, with just my eyes peaking out from all that tech fabric and fleece. The road was pretty clear and I was grateful to have th... read more

  11. RUN
    good The Runaround 4 mi

    Chris and I were both feeling cooped up from computer work and housework and so we took off fast on this run on a pre-lunch run and kept the pace speedy throughout. Both of us had garmin glitches ... read more

  12. RUN
    good Four Before the Rain 4 mi 00:43 10:39 pace

    It's supposed to rain and rain and rain today but I was able to sneak a run in before the weather got soggy. Warmish out - mid40s. Felt strong and steady throughout the run and appreciated t... read more

  13. RUN
    good There Goes a Fighter 7 mi 01:12 10:17 pace

    This was a tale of two runs. The first 4 miles were effortless and I felt like I was flying as I hit 10 min/miles without much effort. It's been a long time since I've had a string of m... read more

  14. RUN
    good Blustery Run 4.5 mi

    I would have skipped this run if I hadn't had a date with Chris. And I would have likely cut it short without her at my side. So here's to RBs! The wind had some serious bite and my bo... read more

      Funny how the cold makes us speed up to keep us from freezing to death out on the road/trail :)

  15. RUN
    good Eminem 8.22 mi 01:32 11:09 pace

    I've kind of sort of been missing long runs. My body has appreciated the break from the big miles but my mind misses the bigger distances. So today I pushed myself a little bit and did an 8 ... read more

  16. RUN
    good While the Plumbers Plumb 5 mi 00:55 10:56 pace

    Life is a little nuts so this run felt like a sweet escape. Hot water heater died and we already had the plumbers on deck to replace a length of pipe that goes to our septic tank (required a mini ... read more

      yay for a patoot-kickin' series of workouts! Running sure does provide an escape.

  17. RUN
    good Making the Rounds with Chris 5.94 mi 01:04 10:49 pace

    Chris and I headed out for a 4-6 mile run, figuring we'd see how we felt and adjust the length accordingly. She's still recovering from the Chicago Marathon and I'm getting used to ... read more

  18. RUN
    good Heating Up 3.85 mi 00:41 10:43 pace

    Good thing I checked the weather before I headed out the door early this morning. I thought it was going to be really cold but a warm front moved in overnight and it was 50 degrees at 6:30 a.m. I... read more

  19. RUN
    good A Hunting We Will Go 5.55 mi 01:01 11:00 pace

    First day of hunting season, so the roads of Hancock were populated with me, Melissa and a whole lot of guys in blaze orange in their pickup trucks. And a lot of nervous deer. It was the first ru... read more

  20. RUN
    good The Good Ferry 5.7 mi 01:03 11:05 pace

    Chilly but sunny morning for a run. I kept the pace easy and was happy to have no pain in that spot above my thigh. I'll keep doing the strength work and keep the running to a minimum until ... read more

      You gave me a really dirty look when we yelled at you as we drove past this morning. I thought you were in pain, but maybe you just had no idea who it was :-)

      Was that a dirty look? I thought I was smiling. Oh dear.

      Haha. Maybe I missed the smile because we were past you so fast. We were gathering seaweed at Jellison Cove to put on the garden for the winter. SMELLY! I would have rather been out there running with you!
