    This was a breakthrough run for me. First double-digit run in nearly 2 years, when I first started having symptoms of psoriatic arthritis. Thrilled to be able to run at all, but i never imagined ... read more

      An awesome workout Michael. I recall you telling me that this was on your calendar - glad that it worked out so well.

    good 3.11 mi 00:35 11:15 pace

    Out on Portland for the week. Did a fun Beer run at Rogue Brewery with no traffic control, so it was not a race by any means. Spent several minutes waiting for traffic lights and a train to go by... read more

      Nice work, and way to strategize. My boyfriend travels a good bit, and he has a similar thought process -- go with the sure thing. So he'll try to squeeze them in at home, or in places he KNOW he can run, instead of taking the "wishful thinking" approach. You're doing great. Super cool you'll be doubling your numbers!!!

      Good 4 to start of the week, Michael. And perhaps you will find a good route for a run on your trip.

      Nice job with Lulu. I run with my dog, Jake. He does great but it did take a while. I saw you mentioned Lulu is only one. Please check with your vet to make sure it's ok. If you start too early you can damage your dog's joints.

      The vet said she'd be good to run after a year. Thanks for the advice!

    I think this snip illustrates how forgettable last year was for running, and how much better this year is going to be!
