Sunrise on my morning run in Ridgefield this week
FINALLY I’m back! Hey, it’s only been a year or so, right? I can find a number of excuses on why I stopped blogging (burn out, tired, busy, etc) but, since no one reads this, who cares! 🙂
Anyway, I am back with my 2015 goal of running the 40th anniversary Marine Corp Marathon with my daughter Kara! Totally pumped about this and looking forward to the start of my 2015 marathon training season.
So, what was I doing the last year (with respect to running, of course)? Ran a few races!
Hartford Marathon 2014! 5:04:30 A totally unexpected time! Rained the entire 26.2 miles. Now I know I can run in the rain 🙂
Weston Reservoir Run 2014! My third time running this and again, an excellent and beautiful course. I have written about it here before.
Redding Run for the Cows 2015! My third time running this race as well. Probably THE best half marathon course and race I participate in. The race director and his team just do an amazing job every year!!
Marine Corp Historic Half Marathon in Virginia 2015! I ran this with my daughter Kara and one of her very good friends Abby. Was a very warm and HUMID day there. Great race, excellent post race support and great crowds along the very historic course.
At some point, I will try to do race reports for each of the races listed above along with photos. Not today. I just wanted to get the blog started and up and running again so I am COMMITTED to doing this 🙂
I have been getting over a silly cold for the past two weeks which really killed any running to speak of. Starting Monday of this week I ran the following:
Monday 5.2 miles 5:30 AM
Tuesday 6.1 miles at 5:30 AM (that’s where the sunrise photo at the top of the blog came from)
Wednesday 4.1 miles at 12:00 Noon on the North County Trailway in Westchester County
I travel to Colorado on Thursday for 11 days so I will be reporting on runs from the trip soon!
My 2015 marathon training has officially begun as of today! It will be SUCCESSFULLY completed on Sunday October 25th in Washington DC when i complete my 9th marathon running the 40th MCM!!
Until then, run hard, run safe, have fun!
