    good Ghooly tempos 3.5 mi 00:31 08:50 pace

    It was a spooky night running past vampires and zombies ... Well, I did walk downtown at the end of our town's trick or treating and a lot of the kids, but running was just a slow acceleration... read more

  2. RUN
    good Track 6 mi 00:55 09:12 pace

    Easy run today.

  3. RUN
    great Tapering long run 12 mi 01:48 09:00 pace

    This was the first time I felt like a 12 miler was "easy." Must be a great training plan! And it was a gorgeous summer day too.

    great Hills 5.3 mi 00:59 11:05 pace

    This one included a couple of easy miles at the track and 7 trips up and down a nearby .25 mile hill. It was too foggy to do this on my overpass, so I went to my backup hill, which is on an out-of-... read more

  6. RUN
    good Evening miles in the dark on ... 8.2 mi 01:23 10:04 pace

    great Weekly PR & Confidence Boost 20 mi 03:05 09:15 pace

    New running PR for weekly distance: 55 miles!

  8. RUN
    great Rocketing at Farnsworth 10 mi 01:24 08:21 pace

    Maybe it was the three coffees, but I was wound up like Warner Bros' roadrunner for this trail run at marathon pace. Two hours later and I feel like I could leave right now and do tomorrow... read more

  9. RUN
    great Country roads and track 10 mi 01:31 09:06 pace

    This was an evening run, with it getting dark by mile 3. Maybe a bit faster than I should have done it, but when I started the sky looked threatening and gloomy, so I hurried. I did four 100m strid... read more
