Had a crappy hot and humid run tonight. Ran 8 last night at a 9:30 pace and negative split the entire run! Tonight 10:00 pace for all five and felt crappy. Only good thing was I had a pool date with this little sweetie when I got done.

On to the Twin Cities!

Speed work, kind of.

In an effort to pick up some speed I have decided to have a one mile time trial once a week. I also do some short sprints on the same night. Last night my mile was 8:10, this week 8:15. However this week it was so so hot and humid! So the speedy turtle will keep trying. On to The Twin Cities!

Minnesota Half Marathon

Ready to run!

Glad to be done! 




It was a hot and humid humid humid day for a run. This race is very poorly supported and could have used twice as many water stops. The stops they did have were poorly staffed and we often stood and waited for water energy drink. Not sure I would do this race again for that reason. I wished I would have wore my water belt. On to The Twin City Marathon!

Morris Challenge 5k

It was weird to run hard! Haven't run a short race in forever. It was a perfect day to run. My time was slower than last year but I think the distance training has slowed me down for the short run. It's a hilly 5k and I finished in 27:20

Fitness Fest Half Marathon 2014

It was a perfect day to run. My wife however had some serious digestive issues at mile 5. We limped in with a time of 2:13 and change. This was just a training run so it was no big deal. On to Grandma's!
