No More Dog Runs

An unexpected turn of events has permanently ended my lunchtime Dog Runs. I am not giving up running, nor am I saying that I won't ever run again with's just going to be less convenient for me to do the latter (and the phrase "Dog Run" is no longer applicable).

And Yet Another 10km PR

I've now gone sub 44...averaging exactly 7 minutes per mile! I guess I do need Justin to push me after all!

100 Miles in 2009 and Counting

Since the beginning of the year, I have totaled 100.88 miles at an average pace of 8:32 per mile. Of those, 48.28 were lunchtime runs with Justin, during which my average proves to 7:34. Not a bad start for 2009!

That said, I actually thought I'd reach this milestone a week earlier, but I let rain limit one of my weeks in January to only seven miles. Rain continues to affect my choices this month, but I refuse to drop below twenty miles per week.

I got drenched during the second mile of this morning's run, wind chilled after that, and, just as the sun came out, I collected heavy clay on the soles of my week-old shoes...all while my wife and brother-in-law enjoyed homemade strawberry waffles.
