    I have a 5K on Saturday I want to do well in, so I’m going to run shorter and easy this week. Started today with a light run around the park in the dark.

    I think I made a stratigic error at yesterday’s race. I did a warmup mile around 7:45 thinking the race started at 8, but it actually didn’t start until 8:30. Did not feel great after yesterday’s ... read more

      I know what you mean, Michael - timing the pre-race warm up is crucial for us senior runners. Have a good week in the Queen City.

    9/11 Heroes Run. Rainy, breezy, and 73° with high humidity. Wasn’t really feeling it today. This three loop course can play games with your mind. There is a lot of repetition, and you just have to ... read more

      Not sure I’d enjoy a loop course but sounds like a good cause.
