  1. RUN
    alright Spring has Sprung 5K 3.11 mi 00:32 10:24 pace

    Better than yesterday, but still a struggle. At least now that I'm back home, I can get back on a normal routine, which my running thrives on. Today felt comfortable, and it also felt quicker ... read more

  2. walk
    alright Cooldown Walk 1 mi 00:16 15:36 pace

    Decided to walk a quick mile after the sluggish run. Ran very little during vacation, but the run in Iceland was priceless. Gonna take a while to get back in shape.

  3. RUN
    alright Home Sweet Home Run 3.01 mi 00:30 10:07 pace

    Slow and Hard

  4. RUN
    great Central Park Outer Loop 6 mi 01:00 10:00 pace

    This morning, Kelli and I ran the holy grail of park loops, running a full loop of Central Park. It's been nearly 30 years since I last ran it (Perrier 10K, 1985), and this was Kelli's fi... read more

  5. RUN
    alright Central Park, NYC 4 mi 00:41 10:09 pace

    Back to an old stomping ground. I used to race here with my father over 30 years ago. Brought back a lot of memories.

  6. RUN
    good Salt Lake City 2.39 mi 00:26 10:40 pace

    Had to get out just to do it in the snow, after arriving in Salt Lake City.

  7. RUN
    good Running in a Fog 3 miles 3.01 mi 00:31 10:09 pace

    And the fog was meterological, not because I got up at 4 AM to do it. Nice shake out recovery run from a full effort weekend. I might have skipped the run, but tomorrow is an early travel day and i... read more

      Great effort getting out there and getting that zero zapped, Michael.

      Lol Bill. Yet another reason to hate Mondays. A big fat zero to start the week.

      Oh I hear you on trying to run and travel - it's what I'm always dealing with! Great getting in some miles before the travel!

  8. RUN
    great Lake WIndward Hell X 2 11 mi 01:52 10:13 pace

    I call this the run from hell mainly becauee it hurts. But it is perhaps my favorite local loop, and a most beautiful one too. It is the course I love to hate. But it is not flat, making the genera... read more

  9. RUN
    great Atlanta Hawks Fast Break 5K 3.14 mi 00:27 08:37 pace

    This is the race I've been waiting for. Haven't really raced a 5K in about 2 years, and wante dto see how close to pre-surgery time I could achieve. In my mind, aggressive goal was 27:30 ... read more

    • Bill H.

      You should be pleased Michael - achieved those goals and I am amazed every time I read your posts how far you've some since the surgery. Looks like it was a fun and scenic course (and you got tickets to the Hawks game too?).

    good 27° Running naked 5k 3.1 mi 00:30 09:40 pace

    Made you look! Didn't wear a watch this morning. Just wanted to stretch my legs a little before tomorrow's 5k ATC run. If anyone else is doing it, and idea about the elevation? Hilly? ... read more

    great Before the Snows 5+ Miles 5.39 mi 00:53 09:54 pace

    It was actually a beautiful morning for running. The air was still and the temperature was very comfortable. It says the wind chill was 25 but I don't think that's correct. After running ... read more

    great Winter Wonderland with Kelli 3.01 mi 00:27 09:04 pace

    Kelli had a scheduled swim this morning, but she loves running in the snow as much as I do. She was already half way to the pool when my phone rang. She said "It's snowing. I'm comin... read more

    great Rainy Day Grossness 3.11 mi 00:30 09:37 pace

    Awful nasty character-building weather early this morning. Rain and a wind chill of 31 degrees made me want to crawl back in bed, but I had the great satisfaction of overcoming the elements and get... read more

  14. RUN
    good 6 mi 01:00 09:55 pace

    Sometimes, I even surprise myself. This morning, I never looked at my watch until the 5-mile mark, so I had no idea what my per mile pace was up to that point. But I did know if I picked up the pac... read more

  15. RUN
    good Back at it 4.5 4.51 mi 00:46 10:14 pace

    First run since Monday. Travel takes so much out of me that some days, I'd just rather sleep in than go for a run in an unfamiliar place. That was this past week. SO it felt good to "slee... read more

  16. RUN
    good Presidnetial Run 5.25 mi 00:54 10:20 pace

    Tired from the past couple of days, so ran very slow and comfortable, and got in some good miles. The over-dramatization of weather moving in to this area is laughable (I think). Cool and comfortab... read more

      We don't want to be on the freeways if it ices up - we haven't had our ice storm yet in 2015. Good 5 to celebrate the day, Michael.

    good ATC Spring Tune-Up 15K 9.29 mi 01:32 09:51 pace

    Very satisfied with this race. My goal was under 10 minutes per mile. The course was kinda sorta a 2 loop course, and rolled. There were some generous downhill stretches, but they were tempered wit... read more
