  1. RUN
    good Pre-Yoga TM Run 2.25 mi 00:24 10:26 pace

    Busy day today, fitting everything in but just barely. Short run, then shower, then yoga in order to make a school board-related meeting in time.

  2. RUN
    good Back to the TM 2.25 mi 00:23 10:01 pace

    Snuck in a quick one this morning while the boys were at Sunday school. Left time to do strength training work (mostly abs) because I've been so lame about that. Run felt good and 2.25 miles... read more

  3. RUN
    good Group Run 4.49 mi 00:50 11:09 pace

    A group run this morning, with Chris, Melissa and Misha. Nice to start off the weekend this way (esp. with Finn's pre-b'day dinner tonight of grilled cheese and short rib sandwiches) and... read more

  4. RUN
    tired Get To The Point (And Back) 4.28 mi 00:45 10:25 pace

    I felt like I never got warmed up during this run. My joints felt heavy with cold and I struggled to breathe. It was around 20 degrees so it wasn't super cold, but when I had the neck gaiter... read more

      oh how I understand the way the desire to not have your sweat freeze on your back can overcome the burning desire to walk! Well done.

    good What is this thing you call "... 4 mi 00:43 10:45 pace

    Alleluia! So good to be back outside after a couple of weeks of running on the TM. It felt hard but in a way that felt good. Happy to have clear roads and temps warm enough that I just wore capr... read more

  6. RUN
    good TM @ the Y 3 mi 00:31 10:23 pace

    Hoped to run outside this morning because the temps are creeping up just above freezing. But it was black ice city, so I packed my TM running gear and went to the Y while C. was at Sunday school (... read more

  7. RUN
    good TM @ the Y 4 mi 00:42 10:22 pace

    I am really missing long runs. And while 4 miles isn't that long, it's longer than the 3s that I've been clocking on the TM lately, so I'll take it. I got on the ARC trainer a... read more

  8. RUN
    good TM@ the Y 3 mi 00:30 10:01 pace

    Sneaking these Y runs in when I can, as the roads are still not safe for running. I had a brunch date with friends later in the morning, so it was fun to pound out a few miles knowing that there w... read more

  9. RUN
    good Coming in from the Cold 3 mi 00:30 10:00 pace

    Chris and I planned to run outside today but Mother Nature had other plans. Howling wind and snow does not a good run make. So we Plan B'd it to the Y to run on TMs and then swim laps. Felt... read more

  10. RUN
    good TM @ Y again 2 mi 00:20 10:09 pace

    Snuck in a quick run before yoga class this morning. The wind is nutso strong today so there was no way I was going to run outside if I didn't have to. Yoga after running was the bonus that ... read more

  11. RUN
    good TM @ Y 3 mi 00:30 09:53 pace

    Snuck this in while the boys were at Sunday school. Next week I'll bring my swim stuff and try to do a few laps after the run just to ease back into swimming.

  12. RUN
    good Ringing in the New Year 4.3 mi 00:46 10:44 pace

    A mid-morning run with Chris and Melissa. Sunny skies but very cold. Nice to start off the year with a run with friends. And nice to get a gift of homemade ice cream sandwiches (thai peanut ice ... read more

  13. RUN
    good 997, 998, 999 . . . 4 mi 00:42 10:26 pace

    1,000!!!! There, I did it! For only the second time in my life, I have run 1,000 miles in one year!! As I headed into my last mile, it was like life was saying "If you want this, you are go... read more

  14. RUN
    good Morning Four 4 mi 00:43 10:38 pace

    Dang, I was getting used to those 40+ degree days. This morning it was around 30 degrees when I did my run. The sun was bright, so that made it easier to head out the door.

  15. RUN
    good Quick Three 3 mi 00:29 09:37 pace

    Chipping away at the last few miles before hitting the 1,000 mile mark. If rain wasn't forecast for tomorrow I would have taken today off. I'm not tired of running, but I am tired of th... read more

  16. RUN
    good Blow, Big Wind 4 mi 00:41 10:16 pace

    The first two miles of this run felt effortless. I was keeping a 9:30 pace without feeling like I was pushing and was starting to dream of PRs that would be set in 2015 races. Then I rounded a co... read more

  17. RUN
    good Six Geese A Laying 6 mi 01:01 10:07 pace

    Christmas magic for this run. It poured rain overnight and all morning. Then around 1:30 the rain stopped and by 2 the sun came out. Unseasonable warm (low 50s) and sunshine on Christmas Day. P... read more

  18. RUN
    Heartbroken Four 4.01 mi 00:38 09:35 pace

    After a night of little sleep and scary dreams, I needed the emotional exorcism that comes from a good run. Sometimes the only way I can not be totally swallowed by such heartbreaking news is to p... read more

  19. RUN
    good Get It Done! 4 mi 00:42 10:28 pace

    Had a lot to get done today and figured my best bet for not bagging on the run was to wait for the bus with the kids (already dressed in my running clothes) and start the run as soon as the bus pic... read more

  20. RUN
    alright TM Four 4 mi 00:43 10:45 pace

    For about 2 weeks I'd been resisting a cold but it finally bit me. I've been feeling like I've been living in an aquarium ever since. I had zero interest in running in the cold dry ... read more

      great solution to a not-so-fun problem. I do find that if I have a cold, a run always makes me feel better, somehow (if only for a short time). Good for you!
