6 miles We get to the high school earlier than 6 am now, the new "plan" is to arrive at 5:45 am, park near the entrance gate, and do the warmup jog on Alton. That worked today, I ran with Gary and Seth for a little over a mile. When the guard arrived (a tad … Continue reading Is it 6 am yet?
26.2 Of all the things I could have been concerned with, a stomach issue late in the day wasn't on the list. I remember an old guy running next to me near the half/full split, asking if I was going to continue on to finish the full marathon. After answering "Yes" he harped all over sharing … Continue reading Miami Marathon 2018

I'm glad I left … Continue reading Miami Marathon 2016
8mi. It's every two weeks that I choose to do uphill sprints for the final three miles of my bridge run. Well, the downhills count, also, so it's 1 mile of warmup, 3 miles of regular hill running, and 6 sprints up with recovery jog coming back down. This was the day to do it! … Continue reading Made for me
5mi. Still barely December, still high 70s in the early morning! Marty, Franci, Paul and Seth where the early ones today. Not a large group for the last track speed workout of 2015. Paul said he was sweating after one warmup lap - he later joked that, "The end times are near" since we haven't … Continue reading Last one of the year…
