We will be running Bix7 on Saturday with Drew and I can’t wait!

  1. Enjoy that cool weather on Saturday! We’ll be shivering too, along RAGBRAI’s last day with a short 70 mile ride.


    1. Wow I can’t imagine doing 70 miles on the bike, I’m just barely starting in that department. I hope you had a great ride! You still feeling good training wise to do Morton 10K?


  2. Hi! 1st off, your blog your blog has been a source of both running inspiration and motivation for me. i want to thank you for any and all updates as i’m struggling with training consistency this year like i never have before. your blog is also a source of perspective on staying positive++ i’m 40yo this year and with work and fam. every bit counts towards beating the new boston 26.2 time standard- i BQ’d in 2009(chicago) and ran boston in 2011. happy blogging- Cheers! Rich


    1. Rich, thanks for posting this comment. I’ve started to wonder if keeping the blog up is something that others will still find interesting, especially when things haven’t been going so well. Then when I see those that subscribe and comment, it makes it all worth it. I hope that things turn around in the running dept for you. This will be my fifth year of running so maybe this is a slump that happens and it’s something all runners go through at one time or another. Take care!
