    Thanks for the well wishes. Regarding runing a mile at that pace, if you can find a race by you that's a miler - I'd highly reccomend it. It's really fun and not a distance you usually race, yet people are captivated by it every 4 years at the Olympics. And to that point - you'd be surprised how fast you can run 1 mile.


    9.7 miles in CP this morning in 1:14:22

    There's nothing quite like running in the predawn light when the sound of a snort from a deer comes from behind. #makingtheheartracefaster

    I live near a wildlife nature area.. One morning, in the distance, I thought saw a dog. It was a fox.

    I put in 4.6 miles this morning.

    No interesting wild animals but I did see three foxes (a mom and two pups) walking along Maple in Birmingham of all places near the Rouge River on Sunday morning. The rushing traffic didn't seem to bother them at all but the moment I tried to pull out my cell phone to take a picture they got frightened and ran.

    The best animal sighting I've had was last Saturday. I ran from home to the Kirk in the Hills church (if you are familiar with that in the area) and then around the lake behind it. At one point towards the back of the lake there must have been 200 great egrets nesting high above me in the tall red pines, maples, and poplar trees. It was quite a spooky sight. I have another long run planned for this Saturday and I think I am going to try to head back over there about the same time of day again.

    Definitely! I think that's just past where I turned around on Saturday.

    Today I did a 4.5 mile run. Mostly easy with 2x 1 mile efforts at T pace. Taper week rocks!

    Oh, I know... I haven't run a mile race in years. My fastest on the track these past few years was a 6:28. My all-time best is 6:09. Sometime soon, I'd like to come back to that distance and crush it. Hell, if I can run a 10k at a 7:20 pace, surely I can run a mile faster than 6:00. ;)

    still getting back into it. I had a busy month and been spending time with a new girl, so we know how that goes :/

    7.75 last night. Going to book a race in early June as training-spiration.

    6 miles today. Nice winter day with blustery winds and snow falling.
    Weather channel predicting 3-5 inches tonite and another inch tomorrow. Kansas City has only had 1 day of measurable snow in May in the history of recorded snow falls. Suppose I should be honored to run in it as part of history. Merry Christmas to all.

    10.4 mile trail run this morning. Very muddy from all the rain and snow. Inov-8 Mudclaws 272's were awesome. Best shoe I've ever wore in mud. Great traction and cleared the mud from the lugs and shoes really well.

    Ran my first stage of the Golden Gate Relay at a 7:53/mile pace 4.3 miles) in 90 degree weather. Fun! My next stage might be near midnight and will be to get us across the Golden Gate Bridge...
