3/23/2012 Ė Run During Lunch

Ran 5.15 miles in 45:55.   Awesome run and new best time for this loop!   Weather was awesome again, but dofus me left the new running shorts I bought yesterday in the dryer, so I had to run in 75+ degree weather in long workout pants :)  At least there was a cool breeze the whole time.

8:55 miles!!!!  Back to improving my speed.

Looking forward to the 5K with my wife on Sunday.

3/25/2012 Ė Run with Heart 5K race

I ran the race in 27:37 and my wife ran it in 27:53.  We ran most of it together, but at the end of the race she told me to take off, so kicked it up for the last ľ mile or so.   8:54 per mile for me, 8:59 miles for my wife.   Usually my wife runs 10 minute miles when she runs, so I am proud of her for pushing it much faster this race.  It felt great to be passing people that looked much younger and fitter than I do :)

23 miles running logged this week.  That is my highest week ever.
