Running with old friends and new

The summer has been on-again, off again as far as running is concerned. As soon as I get a couple of weeks under my belt, a family or work emergency crops up that prevents it for a couple of weeks.

No complaints here, as I have been able to take care of things – so it’s all good!  I’ve just avoided posting until I felt like it was going to remain on-again, as how many “restart” posts can I do in 2 months? It just gets silly.  So, since I am claiming to be on-again full-time, lets take a look at the routine.

runnersI am currently running at least twice a week – meeting up with some other folks in Crofton at 5 am to run 5 miles.  I then go home on those same Tuesdays and Thursdays and run with my kiddos for a walk/run combo – for 2 miles.  There may be a 3 (or 5) mile run on Weds or Friday, depending on other’s schedules.  Then a long run on the weekend.

This last weekend was a 10 mile run up in the “Greater Binghamton Area” – with Derek and Jeremy.  It was hot,muggy and we all foolishly didn’t bring water.   Derek Whined a lot, but despite hurting his back the night before,running too many days in a row and being hungry – ran the furthest he ever has!  His first 10 miles- DONE!

Now he can come run the Cherry Blossom 10 miler in DC with me!

I’ve put a wee-bit too much mileage in right off (26 miles last week) and my right knee, and my plantar fasciitis aren’t to happy with me.  I think they will adjust (with the help of stretching,foam rolling and lots of Advil!)

So… I’m back. Some product reviews soon!  Now to pick some races!


I run, because I am a runner. Having realized that I have always "been a runner" - even when I went years with out running, I am learning how it has integrated itself in all aspects of my life. When I started running in highschool, my perspective on life changed. Funny that I didn't realize how much it had affected it until just recently.
