Mohican 50 – Week 5

Hey it’s Sunday and I am on top of things this week. Working on my training log early. We are in Bloomington right now visiting Lindsey’s mom, Lori, who had knee surgery this week. Have you seen her knee? Look at my twitter if you want to see it. I won’t put it in your … more »

Overdid it yesterday.

I overdid it yesterday. My return to running has been pretty uneventful and very rewarding. Just enjoying it for what it is. For a a couple of weeks there I thought I might lose it. It wasn’t just about not running- it was about not exercising. I was grumpy & cooped up with a maniac … more »

And his family is ALL ABOUT birthdays. There is a special birthday tablecloth that is brought out for every birthday. Nobody misses calling … more »

My Strong Words Today.

Are you racing this weekend?  I am. I’m going to repeat the words below in my mind and have them written on my arm.  It’s not going to hurt until mile 6 or so. But there will be some doubts that start creeping in sooner. And then I’ll get through half way and I know … more »

Lindsey’s CRRG 5K Report

Ok, so I haven’t raced a 5K since the Big Ten Hoops Day 5k…. in 2009. That’s right 2009. It was when I was training for my second marathon and I had run 20 miles the day prior. Needless to say, the PR was outdated and just not even for real anymore. I’ve been so … more »
