  1. RUN
    tired Mountain of God 12 km 01:11 09:31 pace

    It was a good run, but I was tired. Too many wake-ups in the middle of the night, as Matthew is in transition to a "big boy bed." Still, it is beautiful out there. I was thinking how awes... read more

      @Melanie, it sure is different. So far, there hasn't been a time when it's unpleasant to run. I've been caught in a downpour, but usually there isn't an issue. When you get out of the city, there are trails everywhere. Even in town, it's often more like trail running than road running, because there aren't sidewalks most places.

  2. FIT
    good Tennis 5 mi

    Two miles of warm-up, then my first tennis lesson back... Let's just say "rusty."

  3. RUN
    good Bauleni-ZAF 7.7 mi 01:10 09:05 pace

    While my son Andrew was practicing football (soccer) with his Bauleni Compound team, I went for a run, through the compound (with lots of cries of, "Muzungu!") up the big hill, and on out... read more

  4. RUN
    great Container Run in Reverse 18.5 km 01:31 07:54 pace

    Sunday running group - we were planning to run the Container Route in reverse with a loop to the west (toward Bauleni) to add a couple of km and to explore a little. We had a pretty good group, but... read more

  5. RUN
    good Morning Group Run 28.78 km 02:47 09:20 pace

    One of the running group members suggested a long run today, as she is going out of town later. So six of us got together at 6 am for 28 km. We did a 14 km loop through town first - it was decent (... read more

  6. RUN
    good Unexpected Half 21.1 km 01:56 08:50 pace

    I saw on Whatsapp that there was going to be a run this morning - the plan was 7:30am, 15 km, around 6 minute/km. I figured "why not?" and showed up. Rich and Chye were the other two: Ric... read more

  7. RUN
    alright Ring Road/Woodlands 15.08 km 01:28 09:23 pace

    Very tired from an interrupted night's sleep. And I typed out a whole description of the run, only to have it disappear. Bleah. But I just went over 800 miles on this pair of Kinvaras and they... read more

  8. RUN
    good Mountain of God + 17 km 01:41 09:33 pace

    Met with the Sunday Runners for the first time in forever. It was good to be back. We did the Mountain of God route with an added few km on the start, and I always like this route. Good times, good... read more

  9. RUN
    alright Mountain of God 13.5 km 01:16 09:03 pace

    First of all, I'd like to shout out a very happy birthday to Marcie M. today! Hope it's a fantastic one.

    Now for the run... I didn't run for a week, as we were traveling to Victoria... read more

  10. RUN
    tired 8K 8 km 00:48 09:45 pace

    It was hard to make this run this morning. I was up way too late last night (playing games, then doing laundry). So I slogged through this, tired, and struggling with GI issues. But a run is a run,... read more

  11. RUN
    good Bauleni 13.65 km 01:20 09:25 pace

    Easy does it. It was cold out - I wore sleeves. I ran to Bauleni, around the compound a bit, stopped and watched as a couple of men followed a young woman and a little girl - the men didn't lo... read more

  12. RUN
    Kitwe Powerlines 14.66 km 01:16 08:21 pace

    This was supposed to be another slow, easy recovery run, and it was until about the 30 minute marks, when a Zambian guy came by me where the trail intersected with the "road" - he was goi... read more

  13. RUN
    Kitwe Backroads 13.03 km 01:27 10:44 pace

    Another easy recovery day. Legs are still sore to an extent, but not bad. Ran with Emily, a missionary friend from Indiana, as she prepares for a half marathon and talked about running, Africa, min... read more

  14. RUN
    good Garneton Zambia Compound 12 km 01:13 09:46 pace

    Recovery run 1:15. Easy does it on the mileage near Kitwe on the Copperbelt. I ran back along the road to the Zambia Compound and came back, but that only yielded 41 minutes so I ran to the main ro... read more

  16. RUN
    great Victoria Falls Marathon 42.36 km 04:00 09:06 pace

    Went out at 5:40 minute/km pace. For 30-something-km. There were a few slower km through the hills, and trying to coax Johan through the wall. After that, I put the hammer down to finish under 4 ho... read more

    Easy shakeout before the race with Johan and Klas.

  18. VELO
    Kabulonga 01:00

    Taper plan called for 20 minute run with 3x20second surges. HOWEVER, there were errands I needed to run, and with the car sitting in front of the house, starter-less, I decided to do the errands on... read more

      You may not have looked cool, but you were getting your taper on. Way to combine the errands and workout.

      I think the soundtrack for this ride was "Taking Care of Business". :) Good job!

      And for the record, nobody here is out to look cool. Except the ex-pats on their awesome import bikes, but they're only out on the weekends.
