8mi. I woke up at 1:40am. I stayed awake despite trying to sleep again, but no luck. At 2:40am, I figured if I was going to be awake "thinking," then I might as well be running. So I flung back the covers and got dressed quickly to drive to the bridge. I arrived at 2:55am … Continue reading 3am?
16mi. A new Garmin 220, a chance to do a long run with Yves, and a windy Friday afternoon. That's the abbreviated version of today's adventure. We met at Loggerhead Park at 1:30, Yves first run on Juno and Jupiter Beach. He had completed 10 miles earlier today, his coach gave him a 2 hr … Continue reading More than I’d give myself

Notable non-running things about today's workout were the many police and border control vehicles congregating around the parking lot and on Blue Heron Blvd. something was brewing boat … Continue reading Bridge guest
7.5 mi Half a cooldown run with Walter made an ordinarily 8 mile run 7.5. My footbed on the left shoe was a bit annoyed with the hills in the Gel Kayanos, not sure why, I've used them before and no ill effects came about as of Saturday's 10 miler. This run was good, breezy … Continue reading BBR (Bridge before race)
18mi. The final long run on near mileage expired shoes, I started with Steve, Lilia, Chiara and Walter at 5am.
