8mi. It's not often I'm first at Blue Heon Bridge, but however, the traffic lights aligned - I was alone at 4:46 am in the parking lot. I ran a warmup lap by myself. My car said 69 degrees, leaving my house the weather app said 64 degrees. This is common, it's warmer by the … Continue reading Breeze minus 10
5 miles On a day when I thought we'd be running on the Benjamin Track, we arrived and had the intervals on the Alton streets again. I used this to put myself over the lululemon Strava Challenge 80k mark. I felt "heavy" running the intervals this morning. I saw my watch at a 6:15 pace when … Continue reading 20 for Alton
5mi. I arrived in good time, time enough to enjoy a 64-degree warmup with a shirt on! It has been so out of character warm as of late.

8mi. Double up on the hill sprints - I choose this because who wants to run the sprints the week right before a marathon? Not me! I get Jen Q. interested in this idea, she runs the 2 warm up laps with me, then the first 3 miles. And when she sprints up- she does … Continue reading Encouraging pain for others!
7mi. Arriving about 5 minutes late due to unreasonable traffic lights all the way to the bridge, I was met with John stretching in the street. He's never there befoe me! A few of the girls were in the parking lot, stating they already ran the warmup mile and were ready to hit the hill. … Continue reading Be Quick or miss out
10mi. I'm happy to arrive early and make the announcements in Linda's absence. I promote the Tuesday night fundraiser thingy, and run with Dave the whoe way. First time in my Go Run Ride4 shoes, very good! I ran yesterday's 21 miler in the Ultras, somehow maybe when wet they bother the top of my … Continue reading Coming back to back
