  • Running for joy

    This past weekend I took the family to a local park with running trails and we took a little hike on a trail in the woods.  I got to enjoy watching my 5 year old son run through the woods.  Watching him go care free running through the woods just reminded me of how much […]

    So I was prepared to run the Greenville marathon in October and then do the Goofy Challenge is January.  I had not really decided until recently about the Greenville marathon but it will always have a special place in my heart since it was the first course that I broke 4 hours on.  Well I […]

    I am really looking forward to my 5K coming up on May 9th.  I feel healthy which is always good!  My speedwork is going well as I have consistently been hitting my goal times.  I am just trying to maintain the progress the next couple of weeks.

    Posted on April 23, 2009 by in Uncategorized

    I am just over two weeks away from the 5K I have been preparing for.  I have no idea how I will do.  I really have not run a 5K in a couple of years where I really pushed myself.  In fact it might have been longer than that.  I would really like to set […]

    Always the week of the Boston Marathon I get excited and have a desire to qualify for the event.  Having said that it seems that other goals usually take over importance and that gets put on the back burner.  It is something I think I do want to begin to look at.  I get an […]

  • Boston Marathon

    Posted on April 21, 2009 by in Uncategorized

    2:08:42.  That was the winning time for the Boston marathon for 2009.  Deriba Merga from Ethiopia.  That is still a pace that just completely amazes me.  I hope to qualify for Boston in the next couple of years but it will take quite the effort to pull it off.  For me to qualify for Boston […]

  • Training plan

    Posted on April 16, 2009 by in Uncategorized

    Never be afraid to make some changes.  In my present training plan it is similar to one I put together last year.  I suddenly remember how at one point last year at this same time I was not fond of it.  I made changes and was much happier with the plan and the results.  For […]
