Motivational Music Monday #24

It’s Sunday and I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  End of July already and I might really try to get the end-month summary done in the first week or so…I said might, but first it’s time for a quick look back and a music pick for Motivational Music Monday.  As most of you… Read More »

Motivational Music Monday #14

It’s Sunday night and another weekend in the books, which can mean but one thing left to do, other than enjoy the incredible Asian Sesame Toasted marinated shrimp that we just took off the grill (shoulda taken a picture but didn’t but I can assure you, they were good!!).  Food aside, the other Sunday night… Read More »

Friday Bits and Pieces

So many ideas for subjects and so much to write about but not enough time to get anything out this week, so instead, just a quick summary of some general Friday ramblings as me and Wifey enjoy the traditional weekly hour of happiness. A busy week at work, sorta, if you count mind-numbing meetings and… Read More »

Motivational Music Monday #6

It is (almost) Monday (booooo) and that means I best get this week’s music pick of the week out before hundreds of runners come looking for music library inspiration.  Hundreds, being about 10 or 20 🙂  Apologies, it’s Sunday night, I’ve just come off my final long run of the current training cycle that took me… Read More »

Training Update

It feels like I’ve neglected the site a bit this past week, though the reality is that it was just one of those weeks where work issues took precedence and blogging time just got squeezed out of the schedule, so a training update seems like a good idea!  Although I would normally just barely be finishing… 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 »

Festive Greetings!

A real quick post to wish all my running and blogging friends and visitors a very Merry Christmas and festive greetings for the holiday. Thanks for taking the time to stop by to check out my site and to read my ramblings.  The support and encouragement that I have got from the blogging community has… 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 »

Week 13 Wrap!

Week 13, the highest volume week in my Chicago training plan…done! And, the cool little Strava bubbles prove it 🙂  I wont deny, I am so glad that the long week is done.  For the most part I held up, even extending the midweek run from 12 miles to 13.1, just because I was close… Read More »
