Farewell 2015!

A real quick post tonight before our in-house festivities begin to wish all my blogging friends a very happy and healthy New Year and bid farewell to 2015! I’ve already posted a race summary for the year, so will keep this one short and to the point so we can all get cracking on bringing… Read More »

One thousand miles!

Or 1609.34 kilometers for my metric visitors…I wouldn’t normally write a post about just a single training run, but, given the relatively late start to my race training cycles, I wasn’t sure I would make the 4 digit milestone this year.  Today, 5.7 miles into the long run, I crossed the 1000 mile mark so paused for… Read More »

Maui Oceanfront Training Week 5

Week 5 of Maui Oceanfront Training seemed like anything but marathon training!  The focus was on enjoying the Thanksgiving period and the shorter distance 5K and 10K races in Redmond and Mukilteo.  Originally, I had planned to maintain some kind of typical marathon volume that included those races, and while I didn’t miss every run or workout, let’s just… Read More »
