    good Get To The Point (And Back) 4.28 mi 00:45 10:35 pace

    Frost on the grass this morning. Definitely an invigorating morning of snappy cold and bright sunshine. I wanted a good steady run before heading indoors for a retreat at church with Corin and I ... read more

      Oh yes! I love that kind of snappy running weather. Good work fitting this one in with the other commitments of the day. Enjoy the retreat!

    good Mid-Week Eight 8 mi 01:28 10:57 pace

    I think it was reading Bethany's report of the Boston Marathon. It's made me crave big miles. I love the mental ecosystem that only seems to exist on long runs: long stretches of drifti... read more

  3. RUN
    good 3 mi 00:33 10:59 pace

    It's been feeling different to be living without a training plan this spring. For the most part I have liked the more relaxed, make-it-up-as-I-go approach to running. But I do miss the stead... read more

      Oh no!!!! At least you had woods to ditch into. I think it was a great idea to go on this run, all things considered.

    good Me & Melissa 6.41 mi 01:14 11:30 pace

    I told Melissa that I had two goals for this run. One was not to denigrate myself for going slowly and the other was not to stop and walk. I did a great job on #1 and we did one stop so didn'... read more

    Spring is officially here. I ate my first bug of the season on today's run. This run was unexpectedly great. I spent yesterday on my feet, moving stuff out of David's studio. Hours of... read more

    Don't have any close friends running Boston this year, but there are some folks I know who are doing it so it's fun to have them in mind as I do my Patriot's Day run. This run start... read more

    good Good Company 5.8 mi 01:06 11:24 pace

    Ran with Melissa and special guest star (and friend) Carrie this morning. Carrie's just getting back to running and is a champ for doing nearly 6 miles. The conversation was great and the p... read more

    good What a Feelin' 4 mi 00:44 11:05 pace

    Chris told me my outfit was straight out of the 80s with my various neon colors and striped leggings. The sunshine just makes me want to bust out the color. Good run, although legs still tired fr... read more

    Downright gorgeous day: mid 50s, full sun, no wind. I got to wear my rainbow knee socks, running skirt and just a l/s tshirt. I kept thinking I was forgetting something as I headed out the door b... read more

    good The Heat is On 7.01 mi 01:21 11:35 pace

    Ok, it wasn't hot out. At all. But I was able to run without gloves and in capri leggings. So that's something. I was a contentedly slow bunny on this morning's run. I felt like... read more

      hooray for the great conditions! Perfect variable pacing for a general fitness run, I think.

    good S(no)w 4 mi 00:45 11:15 pace

    More snow, but the road was clear enough for a run. Took it nice and slow - in part because of the slippy footing and in part because I wanted to kick back and enjoy myself on the run.

      nooooo! Not snow again. May winter be late and short for you next year. You've certainly taken it "in the teeth" this year. Nice run.

    Rain this morning, but not much use waiting it out because the forecast is for it to turn to ice and snow, with winds picking up as the day goes on. Melissa needed to get 8 but I was feeling more... read more

      sorry it was wet - but that's better than what you'd have gotten if you'd waited. There are days I'd like a GoPro to record random running convos to see what they are really like when I'm not running!

      Sometimes, cutting back is good for us. So I think it's a great sign that you felt like you could have kept on keeping on. Yay for you!!!

    Late afternoon run, as I waited for the wind to dip below 20 mph. First half of the run felt good. Second half of the run was me v. head wind and so it was more of a battle. But I'm pleased... read more
