    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

    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 :)

    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

      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 :-)

      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!

      ah yes, time for x training. That pelvix/groin thing - does it feel like a muscle thing or something else? Cause that is one of the things the chiro works on, down in there (I forget if it's the psoas muscle or something else back in there). I do NOT like this tight hammie thing. I hope you can get to the bottom of it soon.

      I personally have zero problem with walking in between all out speed intervals, with or without a hamstring issue. Sounds like it was all good. Plus, this is really a good result after a long day on your feet!
