    great Nice upbeat neighborhood 5K run 3.1 mi 00:31 10:00 pace

    Got in late from a 2-week trip to the west coast last night, so getting up at 7 was, in effect, like getting up at 4, but i wanted to get a good run in before heading back to the airport this morni... read more

    good BridgePort Brewery fun run 3.17 mi 00:34 10:43 pace

    Kelli came to Portland for the weekend before we traveled home. fOund a fun run at a local brewery. We jogged it easily, and didn't push for time, but still were under 11 per mile. Good wor... read more

  3. RUN
    good Beaverton trails 3.43 mi 00:42 12:14 pace

    I'm sure we ran longer than this, but through the woods, the Garmin probably lost connectivity several times. Regardless, it was a good run.

    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

  5. RUN
    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

    good Great Valentines day 5K 3 mi 00:30 10:08 pace

    Ran a nice low key 5K this morning with my wife Kelli. We are both just starting to train well again, so we just wanted to go out and have fun today, and put in a good effort. I had a goal of 30:5... read more

  9. RUN
    good Brookwood Easy 4 4.1 mi 00:46 11:16 pace

    Just an easy run around the neighborhood to loosen up for tomorrow's Great Valentine's Day 5K. Arlene or Bill, are either one of you running it?

    As I've mentioned in the past, mid day runs are not my favorite. My body is just wired for early AM runs. But I was up at 3 this morning to get ready to catch a flight home, so decided to ru... read more

    All of this is estimated but I feel it is pretty close based on research. I forgot to pack my Garmin this trip, but got out early and enjoyed running the gravel track surrounding Rice University, ... read more

  13. RUN
    good Sedona 10K stroll 6.28 mi 01:14 11:47 pace

    Beautiful scenery. Carried a camera and took pictures the whole way. A nice way to tour Sedona.

  14. RUN
    good Between Flights 3 miles 3.01 mi 00:32 10:47 pace

    Flew home from Memphis this morning, and flying out to Phoenix a little later today, so in between, did one of my very rare mid-day runs. Interesting how my body responds differently when I run at... read more

  15. RUN
    good Brookwood out and about 4 mi 00:44 11:02 pace

    Heading to Arkansas in a little bit, and wanted to get in a few miles before I left. I never know where or if I'll be able to run when I travel, so I figured I'd go with the sure thing th... 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.

    great Winterville 10K 6.22 mi 01:04 10:16 pace

    Never posted this race until now, but it was a breakthrough race for me. I figured going in that if I pushed, I might be able to do a 1:06, and ended up shattering my expectations by over 2 minute... read more

    No, I have not crossed over to the dark side and did an actual Spartan run. I am in Spartanburg this week, and was able to get out for a nice slow 5K run this morning. Weather was warm and humid ... read more
