6.5 mi. I ran the trails of Dyer park with Austin. It was warm but with a breeze. We started with a jog from the model airplane strip to the far side of the soccer fields and around to the entrance gate, then a run back into the park. We ran the hill trail last, … Continue reading Trail running on Sunday
5 mi. To make the few that are heading to St. Anthony's do a mile for time was odd, but I'm not one of those. We ran some 400s first, then the mile, followed by more 400s. My mile was 6;11, Walter zipped by on lap 3 and was strong in a 6:03 finish estimated. … Continue reading Pre St. Anthony’s mile
6mi. Running through my neighborhood isn't a new idea. I got so bored of the route I stopped doing it years ago. Putting some breath and pace behind it is what I'll need to pry my way into a newer level of speed. Three times a week out of routine has gotten me here. Now … Continue reading A new idea
16mi. A peak at the radar online would have most bail out on any planned run today... it was green rain and yellow storms across the whole state. I woke up not to the sound of the radio alarm, but to static, I must have blown out the FM station I usually get when I … Continue reading Drizzled

I ran form Rio to Twain, under the I-15 to Franck Sinatra and north. I worked my way through the backstreets to the … Continue reading Familiar ground
4 mi. So few people showed up to run and even less than any previous year were coming before heading to run Boston on Monday. Gary Walk agreed to pickup my packet so he was trying to go slower than his usual pace - somewhat successful, Erica gave him a "C" grade for his taper … Continue reading Low attendance for Boston bound runners.
8mi. Ok, back on track with the bathroom prep, no issues today, but oh well, the rest rooms were open anyway. Today was the first day where the north side of the bridge was fenced off, no pedestrians. The other side isn't done yet and has remained seemingly dormant for months, but here goes, they're … Continue reading Bridge corral
5 mi The workout today had good elements for a still tired set of legs. I noticed while bridge running that my left quad shook a few times during downhill steps, a sign it's still recovering from the 100k two weeks ago. Some said the school is getting tough with Tuesday night runners and liability … Continue reading Symmetry
