    First time to do a real trail run. I decided I would do my long run at A new running trail that just opened. It was tough. Once I decided to give in and let my heart rate be my guide even if I h... read more

    I was hoping for a couple of sub 10 minute miles and even though I pushed hard I couldn't get it. Humidity was so bad. My legs felt heavy. Heart rate high. It was misting most of the time. I c... read more

      I was going to answer this until I saw the date: "March 8, 2013"! Is my Internet slow or are you catching up on missed dailymissions?

      I saw the question and thought it was a fun one to answer. I also think someone else I am friends with answered it recently, which is why I saw it.

    Nice and easy. The temps are still nice and I didn't have so much trouble keeping my heart rate down. Prayed for my friend who took a break from running for a few months because of PF. He ha... read more

    61 wonderful degrees this morning for my entire run. North wind in my face. Loved it! Every step. Except maybe the last mile. My legs are very stiff and sore. I must foam roll and stretch now. Ha... read more

      I know. Not sure if you can tell but the lady is middle aged and the guy is older teenager. Really cool they are training partners.

      That was what I thought. This reminds me of my running days when I worked at MIT. Our running group included me (manager of a computer department), MIT professors, programmers, salesman, a guy that delivered magazines to stores, students and many other types. It was really cool. All ages too.

      Kinda cool when we get to hang out with people who are different. It helps us stay open minded.
