Rest day.. Because your body needs it, even when your mind doesn’t want to!

Sometimes rest days are like a toddler’s nap. The Child may insist they don’t want/need them – yet due to that nap they are MUCH better to be around. Like wise, as a runner, we may not WANT to take

Running in the cold – you may not be as fast as you feel you are.

Running in the Cold and Dark – and loving it.

Perfect Running Weather!!! Whether my Running technology works or not!

This unseasonable weather – is AWESOME!!!!   Normally I am unable to run whenever we get “perfect running weather” – so I am enjoying it even more!  All those days this year where the sun was shining, are being made up

Last nights run and ponderings on speed. Plus, the 100 up challenge!

It’s amazing to me, but my running seems much faster than it was. I have actually gone back and compared my times, and I am running consistently 1/2 a mile an hour faster than I was a month, 2 months or 3
