Strength workout - 9 mi total - Today's run was a Hanson's Marathon Method Strength (SOS) event. I was to run a 1.5 mile warmup, 3mi at 5k pace, a mile recovery, another 3 mi at 5k pace, and 1.5 mi cooldown. If I had all of my 5k results from the last approximately 12 … Continue reading My mirror
5mi. There will be a time when I can't run on a private track, shower on premise, and walk barefoot across perfectly manicured fairway-grade lawn to stretch out my toes. But that's not today!

3.1 mi. This was my first time running this race. I've been a few times as the emcee/announcer, and always thought, "Gee, it's very warm and still out to be blasting through a 5k." The race begins at 5:30pm so it can be over and out of the way for the beginning of the regular … Continue reading SunFest TGi5k

She is a local runner, friend of Teresa and Angie's that came in second overall at Saturday's Dreher Park Dash. She ran in high school and at Clemson, with a best ever 5k in … Continue reading New hill mentality
