Happy Finishers! I had a good trip to Northeast PA this time. The race went off as planned, with Saturday definitely being the better of the two weekend days to have registered for. More on the weather in a bit... Five of us traveled to this race. Maureen, Kim, and Judy were on the original … Continue reading 2021 Two Rivers Marathon Festival
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
After last year's stomach problems, I was due to solve the issues and have a good race this time. Running on the Presenting Sponsor's team, Colavita, meant we had a nice dinner Friday night and packet pickup was done for me beforehand. Since the past three times I drove in bad traffic to get to … Continue reading 2019 A1A Marathon
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. Only 6 of us this morning, probably a good late summer week for people to take vacations... 2.5 mi warmup on Grandiflora Rd 100m w/100m recovery 100m w/100m recovery … Continue reading 80% effort on the track
To have a good race at A1-A, you HAVE to still feel good at this point, this is where it's important to begin the fight to get home on time.
4 mi. Today was a lay back and show up track workout. I just want to approach this Sunday's A1A marathon with the freshest set of legs possible. I'll eat well for the next few days, hydrate, and not look to press the speed in the morning workout. Paul knew most were there and doing … Continue reading Right before the fray
8mi. Good temps and a slight breeze from the east means it's Blue Heron Bridge time again. I am really confident today's run will push my mind back to the more predictable experiences of a sweat, going at a good pace, and seeing more people show up early. Today I was beaten to the run … Continue reading Back to Normal?
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
13.1 What a cold and windy day we had for this race! I had been sent to Paris for our Euro Expo, an annual conference we hold for our franchisees. This year's version was held at Disneyland Paris, formerly known as EuroDisney. We stayed at the Newport Bay Club, one of Disney's resorts. I was … Continue reading Semi Marathon de Paris
5 mi. Today's visit to the track was so I could do my first run after the marathon. I didn't intend to go fast, just do all of the intervals and stretch out my legs. It worked, because I didn't feel achy or fatigued after the workout or for the rest of the day. Here's … Continue reading Just running in circles
