To have a good race at A1-A, you HAVE to still feel good at this point, this is where it's important to begin the fight to get home on time.
26.2 Of all the things I could have been concerned with, a stomach issue late in the day wasn't on the list. I remember an old guy running next to me near the half/full split, asking if I was going to continue on to finish the full marathon. After answering "Yes" he harped all over sharing … Continue reading Miami Marathon 2018
Last winter, there were only a few days worthy of wearing knit gloves. This year, we have had days in the 30s. And here we are in the middle of March, and I'm showing up to track in a beanie, long leg tights and a pair of the Boston Marathon Towns gloves. I ran well, without a … Continue reading Last chill?

Teresa, Kathy, Mark Cudak, and another gal started with me. I wasn't going to chat … Continue reading Tuning for the noodle
30 miles - Time, to revisit riding! I haven't done this jaunt in two months at least, and our main street, Northlake Boulevard was repaved. I like to start early so as not to get much traffic and especially to not be mixed in with the Christ Fellowship church traffic in or out. I started … Continue reading Wind and wheels
