Coming in last

So I think all runners in the non-elite area may have an occasional thought for the 1 person who comes in last. If you are doing a 5k or something similar, there are typically people walking who will finish after you. I mean, when I very first started running again, I couldn't necessarily beat all the walkers, and I probably still can't. There are usually slower walkers that you can [...]

10k and a 1/2

Half marathon that is.  So in looking to advance my distance abilities for the upcoming full marathon, I have been running ridiculous distances over the weekends.  I fell for the run these 2 races and you get a bonus medal...  So Saturday I ran the St. Patrick's Day 10k around Fiesta Island.  I pushed pretty hard and set a new PR by 6 minutes.  That is about a minute a [...]

So I saw the word beer linked to a run and signed up for my first 10k.  The San Diego Beer run 10k.  Its on August 23rd so plenty of time to get ready, I think.  Need to find a training program.  I looked around and can't really seem to find much.  Most plans are either 5k or half marathon training plans.  I also decided to sign up for my [...]

5k

So I found out that while I'm in Nashville, the Rock 'n Roll series will be having a 5k. I haven't tried one in years, but I can finish it.  So I signed up...  Race morning was really cold!  Got dropped off by mom and went to the start line.  It was a huge race.  I was able to jog most of the 5k.  Time was under 46 minutes so [...]
