14 miles . Today we started at 6am from the Cineoplis parking lot in Jupiter for a long run on hills. This route has 3 mild hills on each lap out and back, so we get to climb 12 times. Nicole and Daniel and I ran together, Maureen and Judy did some of our route … Continue reading First long run of the summer
26.2 miles. Our race would have been today in Hawley, Pa. They had 41 degree temperatures and a high probability of rain predicted for our run on that course. We had another idea, however. Five of us lined up at 5:15 am in the parking lot of Dunkin' Donuts in Juno Beach for a full … Continue reading Outrun Corona
16 mi. It's not a well-recommended plan to donate blood the day before a strenuous run. It does help accelerate the debilitating conditions you experience in distance running, it comes on a bit quicker this way. I arrived at the Dunkin Donuts to setup the flag and sign early enough to start on time at 5 … Continue reading Remember to bleed
5mi. Of all the social media posts you see from runners, often there are photos of workouts and track sessions. Of course there are, there should be! It's an essential part of any serious runner's regimen, speed and intervals. Form and function. Most folks don't have an opportunity to attend a coached track session.

30mi. That's got to be what my bike has been thinking as I open the garage door, park the car, and close the electric door again. All without removing the Specialized S-Works from its I haven't been riding much - and when I do the cycling gods are paying notice. My speedometer, CatEye wireless dual … Continue reading Remember me?

Many of those years were spent chasing Rick Opton down on the bike, trying to transition faster than him to outrun him in a … Continue reading Loggerhead Triathlon 2012
20mi. I'd say 58 degrees would be ideal for that long run before a marathon. Walter & Chiara met me today at 5am, I arrived early and did 2 mi on the bridge first. We went to PGA and back, did not stop at the store, and ran to the inlet, back to the store … Continue reading Long Lemon Run
13mi. This was originally slated to be a 16 miler, but last minute pleas from Walter and Chiara had us start at 5:30am for 13 miles. I had a rare early little league game to be prepared for, this was an 8am start for John. I figured do the 3 miles first, meet the large … Continue reading A Saturday for long, slow distance.
16.5 mi. A breeze and 66 degrees made today's long slow run enjoyable. Chiara, Adrienne, Charlotte and Lisa Reese came early to do the first 6 miles down to PGA and back. then we joined the Sat Running Sports group for their 10.5mi. Suzanne joined up with us right at 5 miles, she was looking … Continue reading Saturday before a long flight
