5 mi. Even in recovery mode it was refreshing to have the second cool track workout in a row. Many of my intervals had me as the very last runner in the group, which was expected. Sometimes, my recovery jog was the same speed as the interval! 1 mile warmup on Alton Rd 300m w/100m … Continue reading A good cool morning for a change!
Pacing for the 3:50 group this year... Year #14 of the race out of 15 previous years with #13 skipped due to change in ownership. I set up and worked at the Expo on Friday. It was small, but in a great location – right in the pavilion next to the start and finish line … Continue reading Palm Beach Marathon 2018
6.5 mi. I arrived early today since this week I should have 65-70 miles done. I did 2.5 warmup with Seth and Aldo, then the track intervals.

Good enough to run in front of me or zip me from behind on each one. There wasn't much of a wind, unlike the last few weeks. Maureen, Mary … Continue reading Chasing at sprints

Julie and Frans were working at a water stop … Continue reading DTR Oleta 10 mile Full Moon Trail Race

My role and responsibility is to safely run with my friend, Julie, and help her become a TCS NYC Marathon finisher. We woke up at 4:45am and had … Continue reading NYC Marathon 2016 ~ The Race
8.4mi. I left the house with the wrong set of car keys. That should have been the signal things would be peculiar today. I seemingly had to stop at every traffic light, opting for the I-95 route to Blue Geron Blvd as I do when I don't see a "green" path down Northlake Blvd. Once … Continue reading Midday hills
