  1. RUN
    great Topsail, NC 15.5 mi 02:12 08:30 pace

    Rainy (on and off) morning, but at least it was overcast. The sun is brutal to run in down here. Got out the door at 5:30 am to avoid the heat, but we ended up avoiding the lightning (even better).... read more

      You guys were in my neck of the woods! Great pace! I've ran that dirt road when it was a sheet of ice, not fun!

      Thanks! Really happy with pace for that distance. Ice on that road would be scary! Hey, maybe next time you can carry the water on ur bike :-) Actually been able to manage with just 2 water bottles, carry one in belt and park the 2nd 30 minutes after start. We had nothing left when we were done today.

      Thanks! Cooler temps and lower humidity really helps. Challenge will be getting the miles (and hours) in when normal summer weather returns.

  8. RUN
    good PBT to UMD tempo 7.5 mi 01:04 08:31 pace

    hot and very humid, another sweat-fest. Bugs were plentiful and aggressive and that kept me moving, so was able to average very close to 7:00 pace despite conditions.

  12. RUN
    alright Cape Henlopen, DE 9.5 mi 01:25 08:56 pace

    warm, not much shade. But (slightly) less humid. Started too fast for the conditions and didn't begin the run until 10am), but got it done.

  13. Anyone on DM vegan? Just started reading Scott Jurek's book Eat & Run (http://scottjurek.com/eatandrun/) after watching Forks over Knives. Very compelling.

      yes. at least mostly ..definitely vegetarian for 20+ years. Had my fastest times going vegan. I have the biological age of someone half my actual age ..the doc kept asking me repeatedly, exactly what year was a I born in again?!?! Also, love the compassion to our fellow earthlings idea.

      I'm really amazed at what I'm reading about health benefits. Not minor improvements, but by leaps and bounds. It's a legal way to get faster & stronger with ONLY positive benefits to health.
