  1. 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

    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

      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 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

    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

      57 in February is even more a rarity! I was up at 4:45 and then crashed again because 5 minutes later the downpour started and it was hammering the roof.

      Timing is everything. I was up at 4, and out at 4:45. Once the rain hit, I was already in it. No turning back.
