8mi. This hill effort was faster than my usual 5am attempts. Good to get out and keep the Tuesday morning ting going, as of late we haven't had as many runners. 5 years ago we had many more people pounding the hills to get ready for Boston. Now there are few Boston bound athletes using … Continue reading Speedy hills!

3.1 mi. I felt good about this race, not PR type of good but I knew cooler weather and no big winds from the Northeast would make today favorable for good times. I brought Austin and Anita in my car from the bank parking lot on Northlake. We parked and arrived early, most runners weren't … Continue reading Race For the Cure 2012
5 mi. Today was an easy track workout with a good chance to see how my breathing was before another Race For the Cure. We ran good intervals of 1200, 200, 400, 600 and I went 80% or better on most of them. My breathing didn't feel 100% like it could support how fast my … Continue reading Pre race lung check
7 mi. This route was good for me during Christmas break, I ran it again while home visiting my sister in the hospital. I dressed in a wicking shirt under a Vans thermal shirt, cotton gloves and a small beanie hat. I carried a 16oz water bottle which I finished along the run. Route map … Continue reading
7.5 mi. Good weather, a small breeze made for a shirtless 6 laps done faster than I have in a while. Kyle Smith joined me for a lap, otherwise I was solo for the rest. I ran a cooldown with Meredith Kramer. Mix1 in the car waiting for my completion, I had a good feeling … Continue reading Better effort going up.
16 mi. I did wake up earlier than I wanted to so I could put in some more miles in cooler weather. The run down to PGA was good, we went at a faster pace than last week. Once back at the store, there was enough time for a bathroom break, then it was to … Continue reading a few more done easy.
7 mi. I ran in what was 0 mph wind and cool conditions today. My 5 laps on the bridge were with Walter and the final two Scott H joined in. I stopped at 5 hills because of a compelling nature call. It was the most ideal day you could run the bridge, I had … Continue reading The best day for bridge running
5 mi. A mile for time in staggered speed lanes, a cool morning that got deceptively warmer the more we ran, this was a good workout. I saw Haley from lululemon run for the first time, a sub 5 in miler, she is tall and capable of 16 something 5ks having ran for Florida university. … Continue reading Track People are back!
16 mi. A 5am start in 50 degree weather means I'm wearing tights and gloves. I wore the correct things for the first 6 miles to PGA & back, then at 6am I erroneously shed the gloves. I should have kept those. Not to be one upped, Chiara shed her jacket, gloves, and wore no … Continue reading Good weather if you’re dressed right
5mi. I knew it was going to be cold out so I dressed appropriately. I wore TNF legs, a cotton short sleeve shirt, an Under Armour Cold Gear long sleeve, a windbreaker and a head beanie. Gloves throughout the whole workout, this was a good strategy! I took off the jacket after warmup and felt … Continue reading I got it right
