Morning Run: 9.2 miles (9:57/mi)

Got up this morning after a very late night attending Halloween Haunt at Worlds of Fun and decided to get some miles in before the weather got too bad. My goal was to hit a 10:00/mi to 10:10/mi pace doing about 8.5 to 9 miles. I was able to not only hit my goal but […]

Evening Run: 3.3 miles (9:24/mi)

Went out for a quick run this evening. Set PR’s for best estimated 1 mile effort (8:40), best estimated 1k effort (5:19), and best estimated 1/2 mile effort (4:15). I’m taking advantage of the nice cool weather. The window of not too hot and not too cold in Kansas can be a short one so […]

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: 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 […]

Evening Run: 2.4 Miles (10:29/mi)

Running after a heavy leg day always sucks. But you have to get out there and just run. In the end it helps me and my legs feel better. I’m doing a bang up job running 10:30/mi. My goal is to train so I can run a 10 minute mile with regularity.

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 […]

Achievement Whore

I lived up to my nickname, Nerdbear, this evening. I remembered about 8pm that I needed to run 3.5 miles to get the National Park achievement on my Apple Watch that is available today only. So I promptly put on my shoes and ran 3.7 miles.

Hummer 5K

Today was a hot one but wanted to get another run in. Ran it slower then usual because of the heat. I hope by running more will get me back closer to where I was when I was training for my half marathon.
