Sorting it

2000 yards. It's getting easier. To show up, hop in and do a mile swim isn't a big deal anymore. I'm more efficient than a month ago, I am staying in twice a week conditioning shape, this is good! Most of all, while swimming laps I can think. It's quiet, no distractions, I'm able to … Continue reading Sorting it

ING Miami Marathon

The last time I ran a marathon in Miami, it was 2004. ING wasn't a sponsor. The race was maybe slightly larger than Palm Beach's marathon. That means 600-800 marathon runners, and 2500 half marathoners. The rain blew in at mile 16 that year, yielding some crazy conditions that included sidewards rain and wind squalls … Continue reading ING Miami Marathon

San Antonio again!

Maybe 5-6 miles spent rambling around Riverwalk outside of the main restaurant and tourist area was enough of a jaunt for today. We had the trade show yesterday, again today, but getting out in 37 degree weather like yesterday was a must! And this time Jessica could join in, we each did solo runs yesterday. … Continue reading San Antonio again!

8 miler in San Antonio

8mi. I took advantage of the hour of time difference to sleep until after 7am. I was sharing a room with Donovan, a new LifeVantage distributor from most times South America, originally New York, he's lived plenty of places! I left the hotel anticipating a snap of cold with the 36 degree posted temps. It … Continue reading 8 miler in San Antonio

Some track-fed stride recovery

4mi. Not having been told or issued a request, Paul's workout was good for me this morning. Post Disney Marathon meant I wasn't going to aggressively blast through the intervals. I did well running the bridge on Tuesday, so that meant I didn't have to completely lay off any speed or scramble through the group, … Continue reading Some track-fed stride recovery

Post race hills – yup!

8 mi. Having run Disney just two days ago, this was another example of feeling good and coming for the Tuesday bridge run. My legs were not 100%, but I didn't have the soreness and limited stride I used to experience with marathon recovery runs. I ran two laps with John and Lanae, John then … Continue reading Post race hills – yup!

The *Magic* of the long run.

26+ mi. I can say that any thought of Dave Masterson doing the Disney Marathon ever again was a surprise. In 2007, I did the Goofy Challenge. I thought the course was mostly back roads and service alleys, with too few of the miles spent in the parks where the supposed "fun" should be. This … Continue reading The *Magic* of the long run.
