  2. RUN
    alright The bottom of the lake 13.23 mi 02:10 09:48 pace

    Three things for which I am thankful:

    1. I started strong
    2. I finished stronger
    3. I absolutely bombed out two 10-minute HMP segments deep in the back-end miles of this run (at coach Susan's... read more

  6. RUN
    Putting the days to bed 18.91 mi 03:14 10:14 pace

    9+ on my own (at a 9:34 pace) along Springwater, surrounded by choirs of birdsong, as the sun rose into a starry sky.

    Then another 9+ pacing my run group (at a 10:53 pace) around the Portland wate... read more

  7. RUN
    alright Uphill, both ways 5.31 mi 00:55 10:16 pace

    Wednesday night is supposed to be track workout night for the running group that I pace.

    So naturally, coach Susan had us run up Thurman and along Leif for 25 minutes instead.

    Wait, what? Who sai... read more

  8. RUN
    great The Day Before We Went to War 10.35 mi 01:40 09:39 pace

  10. RUN
    great Luckython 10K 6.2 mi 00:53 08:32 pace

    Say it with me: boooooom! :-)

  11. RUN
    great #MTIAR 1 mi 00:07:10 07:10 pace

    Damn. I mean, seriously.

    While last night's track workout (our first actual speed session with the run group) amounted to more than this individual mile, it is this mile that warrants its own... read more

  12. RUN
    great Born to Run 8.48 mi 01:33 10:59 pace

    If I could describe recent days to you in such a way that made sense, it would still seem like something only found in fiction.

    About how (finally) picking up and reading Born to Run has been re-w... read more

    great The day before the day 4.95 mi 00:58 11:41 pace

    Last night: 4 miles of hill repeats up and down Terwilliger (after a couple of warmup laps around the track) with my run group. Since only one of the slower runners was in attendance, I hung back w... read more

    great Fall back & ROLL HARD 6 mi 00:53 08:45 pace

    Dude.

    WTF!

    The tiny lingering internal questions that remain about my true potential are rapidly being burned away in a fiery blaze due to run after run of clarity-inducing awesomeness.
