The Long Run . . . .

Posted on April 3, 2021

I ran today – a good long run – I was out for 16 miles. I’ve been doing the RunHub store’s training program for the Eugene Marathon / Half Marathon (I’m in the Half group). Today was our longest run before race day, the 25th of April. It was a beautiful morning to be out, the town FULL of runners, including many college running teams in town for the first Track & Field meet at the new Hayward Field. When they pass me, it feels like I am walking. They are good. I stopped and snapped this shot near my turnaround point near Dorris Ranch park. Lovely trail & lovely spot. I finished my run at the Provisions coffee shop near home, so I…

These are my half-marathon times. I signed up to run the Eugene Half-Marathon this spring (again) as well. There are some big gaps in this chronology, but that’s OK. A lot happened and even if I didn’t run half-marathons I never stopped running.  Onwards! 

2018 Running Review

Posted on December 31, 2018

Well, this year has been quite a year for me in terms of my running. I started 2018 coming off of rehabbing a broken ankle, setting a goal of running 1000 miles and competing in a few races.

My goal was 1000 miles, but a broken elbow late this year slowed me down a bit.  Completed my 12th Half Marathon Ran an under 2 hour half marathon Ran my first 30k Trail Run Ran an 18 Mile Trail Run Found a running group (or rather they found me?). Either way this has been the…

2018 arrives –

Posted on January 1, 2018

Last night the kids and I ran in the “1st Run” 5k here in town. It was a great way for us to start off 2018, with both Nora and Jonah running the whole thing. Nora’s goal was to literally RUN the whole race, without walking which she did. Jonah ran a fast 9:34 pace which helped him take first place in his age division.  I also acquired a cool little “scratch-off” calendar for the year put out by Tracksmith in New England. It’s a “No Days Off” calendar where for each day of running you scratch out the day and beneath the ink is a word which will make up a complete story as the year goes by. Now, I don’t plan on…
