  1. RUN
    good Around the Hood 5K 3.1 mi 00:35 11:13 pace

    Not a bad recovery run after yesterday's 10K 60+ PR. Everything feels amazingly good. Ready to rock the longer races coming up.

  2. RUN
    6.08 mi 00:57 09:26 pace

    From yesterday. I hate that this course was about 1/10th short because it would have been the best 10K I had run in several years. A full distance would have been about 58:30.

    We kind of dodged a bullet with hurricane Michael. Lots of rain and breeze overnight, and there were tornadoes in the area, but overall, we fared very well. Rain will move out today, and autumn wi... read more

    5.4 mi 01:02 11:28 pace

    One of those mornings where I did not have a plan in mind until halfway through my run. About 2 miles in, I decided that running for about an hour would be the flavor of the day. I was tired, and r... read more

  6. RUN
    3.19 mi 00:33 10:26 pace

    Got out later than usual this morning, so just ran a quick three and change. Almost skipped the run altogether, but the forecast is for Hurricane Michael to make an impact over the next couple of d... read more

    After yesterday’s 11, I wasn’t even sure if I was going to run today, but decided when I got up to do a shake out 3 miles just to get the limbs moving and the blood flowing. The threat of tropical... read more

  8. RUN
    11.01 mi 02:10 11:46 pace

    Got out to the Greenway with Kelli early enough to beat the crowds. Kelli has 10 on the agenda, and I had 11. We ran easy the first half, and picked it up just a tad on the way back from this out a... read more

  9. RUN
    4.4 mi 00:46 10:24 pace

    Felt pretty good this morning, so took advantage and ran a little bit quicker than normal. Got out on the late side, so it was warm and sunny, But the heat was not an issue during the run. They a... read more

  11. RUN
    6.12 mi 01:06 10:45 pace

    Took a couple of days off just because I was traveling in an area that I didn’t feel like mapping out a route. After a couple of months straight of 110+ miles, it was a refreshing rest. It left me ... read more

  12. Actually enjoying a 2-day self-imposed break from running, simply because I am tired and choose to sleep a little later. I also look forward to coming back refreshed and stronger tomorrow. I have... read more

    good Charlotte before heading home 3.08 mi 00:35 11:30 pace

    Finishing up Kelli‘s birthday weekend with a 3 mile easy run before heading back home. 17 miles for the last three days for both of us, which is a very good showing. It’s always nice to start the m... read more

    Another awesome run with my beautiful wife. We ended up deciding on McMullen Park Trail head. We had 8 miles planned, and this paved trail was a perfect 4 miles out I am 4 miles back. Could not ha... read more

  15. RUN
    6.1 mi 01:11 11:33 pace

    Out early with the birthday girl for a wonderful 6 miles before a planned day of fun with her kids. It was very humid but probably in the upper 60s which feels so much better than lower 70s. Pretty... read more

  16. RUN
    3.52 mi 00:40 11:26 pace

    One of the better runs I’ve had lately, just from a relaxation and recovery standpoint. All I wanted is somewhere between 3 and 4 miles at a very easy relaxed pace. Very humid out, as it had raine... read more

      Sometimes it just feels good to have few expectations for a run. Glad this was good!

      2 consecutive months (and summer months at that) with 100+ miles after a 5 year gap - you are definitely back, Michael - well done

    Just wanted some shake-out miles this morning keeping my average heart rate below 140. Very tired all day yesterday so took it easy this morning. There was a hint of coolness in the air, but stil... read more

      I agree - it was (I wrote "is" and happily changed that to "was") a tough summer. Good shake-out this morning.

      It was especially tough for me, as I spent the majority of the summer racked up miles in South Florida. I just decided early on I wasn't going to let the summer heat stop my progress, and I am a better runner for it today. I will be more than ready for my longer races coming up.

      You have some great races coming up. The 10-Miler is one of my favorites. I won't make it this year, unfortunately, unless I enter the 5K.

    After running my 10 miles on Sunday, I decided to take yesterday off, just because I felt like my body could use a break. I never like how I feel on days where I skip a run, but sometimes, your bo... read more

      Yes, we're like addicts who don't get a fix. But it's good for us. Another nice run in the books for you.
