  3. RUN
    great Paseo trail new-shoe test 5.01 mi 00:49 09:44 pace

    Trying out a new pair of shoes -- always fun, but especially when they fit gloveishly. And they did. I know most a y'all would think of the Brooks PureGrit 3 as a minimalist shoe, but it felt... read more

    Crossing the finish line last Saturday at the Pass Mountain 25k race with my running bud Lyle M. -- who no doubt could have finished in the top 10, but chose to be there to run with the much-slower... read more

    Paseo speed drills 5.05 mi 00:46 09:10 pace

    Lunch run, going NB from Dump Park on the Paseo, alternating fast vs. chill speeds between each segment. Got a personal best on 3 sections, so that felt good. Worked off last night's big dinn... read more

    good Paseo southbound from Dump Park 5.74 mi 01:38 17:00 pace

    mostly a walk (long call with the daughter) on the chandler paseo, then finishing up with bladder-motivated sprints.

  7. RUN
    great Chandler Paseo NB from Dump Park 9.01 mi 01:35 10:33 pace

    a long "runch" along the paseo through Chandler from the park, which the locals call Dump Park. Some say it's because it was built atop a landfill. I say it's because you'd... read more

    forgot to take the key to get out of the gated community. Captive!

    great Paseo trail, Chandler, Arizona 4.24 mi 00:38 08:55 pace

    my first run since the race and, boy, did it feel good! loosened up a lot of the soreness. :)

    good caged in! 1.15 mi 00:24 20:45 pace

    A race recovery walk in the dark of early morning through my brother's gated community here in Chandler, Arizona. Turns out even the pedestrian gates are locked, so I couldn't leave the n... read more

      You were told its a gated community, but its really just an upscale prison. Must be federal.

      Funny, my aunt lives in a gated community in Chandler. Wonder if it's the same one? :-) I haven't been there (I will in February) but my dad has, and the set up sounds the same.

      odds are it's a different gated community, Kim, as they seem to be plentiful down here. :)

    Very happy with this race. My buddy Lyle M. the speedmeister drove out from Quartzsite to join me in the race, even going slow enough to pace/coach/encourage me the whole way. And this being an at-... read more

      Great job! I was wondering how you were feeling this weekend. Sounds like the rest (and pavement walking) paid off! P.S. - I've been to Apache Junction, and run in areas near it. Beautiful place!

    This was my collective stretch-break mileage while on my drive to Arizona from CA. To stay limber the day before the 25k, i stopped every hour-ish to walk about a half mile on the nearest lonely de... read more

    i sure miss the trails, but don't want to risk any more ankle issues before saturday's race

  15. walk
    good walking the highway 2.56 mi 00:50 19:25 pace

    to have survived walking along the curvy, mountainous 2-lane, no-shoulders highway 249 is a thing to be grateful for, especially with weekend drivers. :)
