I still want to run a lot but also get back into cross training. Some half marathons this year and maybe a break from marathons, maybe. Injury-free as always!

  1. Well, I figured out why my toes were burning so much in the last few miles... I developed blisters underneath my toenails. They popped tonight while I was trimming my nails. Definitely going to lo... read more

    Fargo Marathon 26.2 mi 04:23 10:01 pace

    Well, not the 4:10 I was aiming for. A little disappointed about that. I did have a lot of factors working against me and in the end or middle end, I didn't have the mental toughness to brea... read more

      I don't think recovering from illness has a damned thing to do with mental toughness! In fact, I think that the fact that you got out there and get it shows what a badass you are. I can't wait to see you, and celebrate over a run and perhaps some adult beverage too.

      Alllll the Stars have to align for a marathon PR - very, very hard to have happen when so many of them are beyond our immediate control. You ran a tough race and finished with a solid time - be proud of that!! Nice work out there!!!

      I would agree that it's totally taper stuff. Don't let it get in your head. You are prepared and ready.

    Fought the pace the whole way - except on the hills, on the hills I had to push and there were a lot of hills today (34th, Urbandale, 70th, University). I felt good and could have kept going but p... read more

    Last work out for a couple weeks. Deciding to get sleep next week (marathon a week from Saturday!) and then possibly w week off depending on how I feel.

    Fargo W19D2 5.17 mi 00:53 10:16 pace

  9. RUN
    Fargo W19D1 4 mi 00:38 09:35 pace

    1mile warm up; 2min at 8:27 with 2min recovery - x6. 1/2 mile cool down. Had to do this on treadmill during kids swim practice given rain in morning and grading at work.

  10. RUN
    Fargo W18D4 13 mi 02:10 10:02 pace

    This run sucked. Accidentally drank too much last night. Did not keep track of how much I was drinking - nice night, dinner with friends... you know how it goes. Then I was awake at 1:30a and co... read more

    Fargo W18D3 5 mi

    Garmin was dead this morning so I ran my Wednesday 5 mile loop. Have no idea about time or pace, whatsoever. Odd but liberating feeling.

    Fargo W18D2 5 mi 00:50 09:54 pace

    Easy 4 on the treadmill while kids are at swim team - decided to sleep in this morning. Knees still a little sore but not bad.

    Treadmill shake out. Knees were sore after yesterday but feeling better today.

    Fargo W17D4 - Drake Half Mara... 20.28 mi 03:14 09:32 pace

    This was a miserable run. Rain/wind/cold - blah. Ran 7 on my own before the Drake half. Stopped at my friend Laura's house, changed into dry clothes and then headed to Drake for the Half. ... read more

      May not seem like a strong run but that's a great pace and I guarantee that will pay off! Never worth it to me to spare the shoes if it gets your feet. Learned that one the hard way. Good, hard work today!
