12.07.2017 Run 2 was pissed, decided to show run 1 who the boss is
Well, this afternoon, run two started off smooth.  I finished mile run in about 8:15 and felt good.  Mile 2 was full of hills and ended up 8:31 and was not happy.  It was quickly decided that the final 2 miles would be a real push to show run one that it me...

12.07.2017 Run #1--Quick 4 miler, fastest mile in awhile
I just finished up run number 1 of the day.  I ran a quick 4 miler in 31 minutes, with a final mile in 6:53.  That's the first time I dipped a mile under 7 minutes during a run in awhile.  I have and will race much faster than that, but to hit it in trainin...

2018 NYC Half Marathon lottery results.....
I think the screenshot below says it all.  Super excited to be doing the 2018 United Airlines NYC Half-Marathon .  The distance bodes well for me based on past performances, but I have only run on one course before.  Luckily, it was a hilly one.  I look for...

12.05.2017 Hilly 6 miler, humid and warm for December
It's a warmer December day and humid out as it's on and off rain in the forecast.  I overdressed a little on the run and was a bit warm.  I fixed it as best as I could mid run by unzipping my base layer and taking off my winter hat.  I would much rather be ...

12.01.2017 A 5 miler to finish the week motivated
I didn't really have a lot of time today to run.  I had about 45 minutes to work with so I had to get out and go for my 5 miler quick.  I cruised in just under 40 minutes for run and am happy to have gotten it in.  For me, motivation has a snowball effect. ...

11.30.2017 Quicker 5 miles today, and as the song says, I got issues...
The song says, "I got issues."  Julia Michaels is right, I have some.  Two to be in fact on today's run.  Luckily, both of them are easy to fix and I don't generally make these beginner mistakes. First, I normally eat between 2 and 2.5 hours before I run.  ...
