  1. RUN
    good Five Spot 5 mi 00:57 11:29 pace

    Quiet week for running. Short run on Monday and then Tues and Thurs I had good workouts at boot camp and didn't feel the need to squeeze runs in as well. I figure I'll take it easy over t... read more

  2. RUN
    good Quick with hills 2.44 mi 00:26 10:47 pace

    Short run with my younger brother around my older brother's neighborhood. Made it challenging by going fast up the hills.

  3. RUN
    good Gettysburg 3 mi 00:33 11:05 pace

    In PA to see Dad. Treadmill was slippy so I headed outside. Did a tour of all the parking lots near the hotel.

  4. RUN
    good Special Guest Star: Mandy! 5 mi 00:59 11:50 pace

    I was having a cup of tea with Mandy last night and she talked about training for her sprint tri this summer. She's finding the running challenging and noted that she needs to step up the trai... read more

    Lovely Lull 4.77 mi 00:54 11:16 pace

    Now that I've got the Marine Corps marathon on the calendar, I have a training plan locked into place for the 20 weeks leading up to the race. And I'm done with my spring races (Flattop 5... read more

  6. RUN
    great A Bit of Boston 10.67 mi 02:32 14:16 pace

    Kept ADT company for a stretch of the Boston marathon. I feel really lucky to have gotten to experience this race (I'll never BQ and for me the fundraising goals to be a charity runner are too... read more

  7. RUN
    good Week 10, Run 2 8 mi 01:34 11:43 pace

    Loving this warmer weather (but not too warm!). Basically, when weather isn't a factor that I'm working against in a run it's good weather!! Upper 50s, a little humid but also a litt... read more

  8. RUN
    good Week 10, Run 1 4.71 mi 00:57 12:10 pace

    Early morning run. Felt good to shake the creaks out after Sunday's race.

  9. RUN
    good Bridge the Gap 10 Mile Race 10 mi 01:48 10:48 pace

    I think this was the nicest weather I have ever had for a race. Mid40s at the start in bright sun and winds around 10 mph. It was about 50 degrees by the finish - still sunny, and that breeze felt ... read more

    alright Week 9, Run 2 8 mi 01:32 11:32 pace

    Really busy day - felt like I was fitting this run in with a scalpel. Got it done but felt like I was plodding along. The 3 inches of snow overnight and the spotty rain while running is definitely ... read more

      Blech on the snow!!! Those scalpel runs are tough. That's a lot of miles for the middle
      Of the week!

    Early morning run. Gorgeous golden light.

  12. RUN
    good Week 8, Run 5 10 mi 02:02 12:14 pace

    This 10 miler was the capper on a high mileage week. I've foam rolled twice (which is two more times than I've foam rolled in the past month) and been patient about pace. Being able to do... read more

  13. RUN
    good Week 8, Run 4b 3.13 mi 00:31 09:57 pace

    Flattop 5K. Slower than the previous two years, but lots of fun and I felt strong throughout. I think I went out too fast (so hard not to do in a 5K) with a first mile of 9:07. I forced myself to s... read more

    good Week 8, Run 4a 1.51 mi 00:16 10:50 pace

    Warm up for this morning's 5K. Nice and easy.

  15. RUN
    good Week 8, Run 3 4.5 mi 00:49 10:48 pace

    Did another cardio combo: 2 miles on the elliptical and 2.5 miles on the TM.

  16. RUN
    good Week 8, Run 2 7 mi 01:18 11:06 pace

    This was slated to be 7 miles at pace. That felt like too much of a push for me, esp. with another pace run of 5 miles on the schedule for Saturday. So I opted to do the middle 4 miles at pace (10:... read more

  17. RUN
    good Week 8, "Run" 1 4.5 mi

    Mixed this one up a bit, doing about a mile before boot camp and the remaing 3.5 miles after class - and splitting those miles between the TM and the elliptical. I realize that when the mileage/wee... read more

    good Week 7, Run 5 9 mi 01:50 12:16 pace

    I thank HRT for teaching me to chill out on my long runs -- just cover the miles at a mellow pace. Grateful for the full sunshine, but it was colder than I expected - 18 degrees at the start, with ... read more

  19. RUN
    good Week 7, Run 4 4 mi 00:40 09:57 pace

    This was a race pace run. I was going to try to hit 10:30/10:45, but after the first (faster mile) I decided to go for a speedier pace. I made a deal that I could stop and take a few off-the-clock ... read more

  20. RUN
    good Week 7, Run 3 4.5 mi

    Sliced and diced this one, doing the first 1.5 miles as part of boot camp class. We were alternating between 3 minutes of cardio and 1 minute of abs. Then I did the final 3 miles on the TM after cl... read more
