The 18th running of this event was a hot one! I attended the Colavita Dinner Friday night at Luigi di Roma with Maria. The meal was great - the transit to the restauarnt in Deerfield Beach is crazy! This is always a test of patience as the drive down on a Friday late afternoon takes … Continue reading 2023 A1A Marathon
Some good weather ahead helps tune the mental state. I can thrive in cooler weather, especially if we get it on race day. A third Monday in April would be nice! This quick pic taken at Sandhill Crane trailhead - some peculiar foam appearing as if it's ice on our Florida canals... I'll post it … Continue reading Building more than speed
13.1 miles - The weather for this event was perfect! After many good years at this race, we were delivered a GREAT day! We had a good number of local runners make the trip up from Palm Beach for this race - the 50th running of the Space Coast Marathon. Today I was "on duty" … Continue reading Space Coast Half Marathon 2021
5mi. As our group passes into mid-September, we have little break in humidity. There are no breezes, and almost weekly I see the threat of thunderstorms on my MYRadar app before I leave home. I know it will be clear but wet when I arrive, so no delays - it's off to the run. 1 … Continue reading Sometimes there’s no noticeable change
11 mi. Erica asks me if I'll do her "long run" with her, calculatd to be 11 miles at 7 min pace. I was going to do the track workout at 5 miles total, but in the spirit of training harder as per my Vancouver runs, I agree. It begins with a one mile warmup … Continue reading Sure, I’ll go…
8mi. I started solo on the warmup, then ran a few up and over laps with Lani. She had instructions from her coach to limit the repeats and do more warmup. I did two solo laps at the end. Today was sticky and hot, not much of a breeze for me to enjoy. Middle of … Continue reading Back in business
8mi. Back in time to see the sunrise, I took a long time running the bridge today. A bathroom break, water stops, this was a slow bunch of hill laps. I ran alone for the first two, with Kyle Smith for the next two, then weaving around those that showed up at 5:30am for my … Continue reading Nicer weather, lighter mornings are here.
4 mi. I ran quickly from the house to the back of the neighborhood while John did his homework - this will be a good way to gauge my ability to blast out 3-4 miles at the end of a sprint triathlon. I'll keep it alive.
7 mi. The first run of the year, an easy 7 miles with a small group on Jan 2 from the Running Sports store. From the sounds of it, some were riding afterwards, some were coming back to the store for champagne. I ran with Carolyn and just yapped about things coming up this year. … Continue reading A Mild Beginning
7.5 mi. A warmup mile, a lap solo, then 5 more with Scott. Then temps were ow 70s, there was much less humidity and I ran well up and down, keeping my fastest pace for the last two laps. My men's room visit cost me the final lap of cooldown. This is an abbreviated week … Continue reading Hills are better in the cool weather
