Evening Run: 2.4 miles (10:28/mi)

Since my hand is still sore I decided to forgo weight training this evening and went for another run. I was also surprised with getting my new Apple Watch series 3 with cellular delivered today. Being the geek that I am I got it all set up and took it out for a spin with me […]

Afternoon Run: 2.3 miles (10.14/mi)

Trying to get a few more miles in per week so today I went out and ran an easy 2.3 miles from home to Gage and back. I’m going to get back to running at least 3 times a week. Plan on complementing those run with two bike rides and two strength workouts until it […]

Shawnee Lake w/Tinman Circle x2: (15.1 miles)

I learned three things while cycling this weekend on my new bike: Maneuvering a road bike with razor-thin tires is much different then a mountain bike with oversized tires. A lot of people don’t know there right from their left. Crashing hurts. This weekend I got a couple of bumps and bruises from my new […]

Afternoon Run: 3.2 miles (10.23/mi)

Nice easy run today. Shane is out of town for a couple of days and the weather has been gorgeous. So I’m trying to get in as many miles as I can running before it starts to turn cold again. I’ve been having some soreness in my lower back so I’ve stayed away from lifting […]

Morning Run: 10.5 miles

Today I decided I’d go for a run. Guess it was a bit longer than I had intended to run when I started. But I guess why not right? 10.5 miles is just my new reality. Looks like I don’t need as much training for my half marathon next month that I thought I would […]

I am a Runner

So today I am a runner. I know that seems strange to say now but I firmly feel that you are a runner when you feel like one. And that is different for each and every person. Even when I was training and ran my half marathon I felt like a fraud. Like I was […]

First Time on the Road

Visiting my parents this weekend and I decided to bring the bike with me for a ride. Wasn’t sure where or how far I was going to ride until I got here to figure it out. I decided to make a loop going from Monett to Pierce City and back. Turned out to be a […]

Evening Ride: Shunga-Landon Trail

The weather is finally cooperating again by getting cooler so I can get out and ride again. There was a lot of people out on the trails this evening. I guess they all had the same idea I did. I’m going to shoot for about 100 miles this month. I want to get as much […]
