Well with the Utah Marathon only 2 months away it was important that I get out early and get in a few miles before meeting the Saturday morning group. Ended up with 6.18 miles at 11:11 min/mile before meeting the group.

Once I met up with the group I didn’t feel like running any more but I got out there and tried to put in a few more…most of it was walking though. An additional 4.11 miles at 13:21 min/mile pace.

Total on the day was 10.29 miles.

I’ve now had almost 2 weeks off of running…I really should have run on vacation but just couldn’t wrap my head around it…so I was headed out to put on a couple. My wife stopped me and reminded me that the next marathon is right around the corner and that I should really do 4 miles. So reluctantly I realized she was right. I headed out and completed my 4 miles at a 10:42 min/mile pace.

With how humid it was yesterday I was still a little wiped but I forced myself…and my wife….to get out and complete a 3 mile walk.

For Utah I need to do 15 miles today…for Chicago I need to do 9 miles…the Lighthouse run is today and it is 10 miles…isn’t that enough?

I guess not! I really needed to put the miles on so I decided to run down to the starting line 5 miles away. Managed to complete the 5 miles at a 11:11 min/pace.

Then I completed the Lighthouse Run in 2:01:00. Finished the 10 miles at a pace of 12:23.

In all I completed all 15 miles on a day that was just too damn humid!!

The goal for today was 14 miles but I was willing to settle for 12 seeing that next week is the Lighthouse Run. I started out from Colonial Park at 5:30ish in the hopes of getting 7-8 in before anyone showed up.

I ran out of the park toward Gilmore; around Gilmore to Mt. Pleasant; down Mt. Pleasant to South St; South to Main; Main to State; State to Prospect; Prospect back toward the park.

While I was on Main St I remembered that the GMR (Great Midwest Relay) was taking place and they were running through Racine about then. So I stopped by Main St bridge and cheered one of the runners on…that is a long way to go…maybe I should put a team together for next year!?!?!

I got back to the cars and meet the rest of the group (small for such a nice day!) We headed out and I chatted with Jeff. We caught up on all our work activities and didn’t talk politics much. I gave out at 2.5 and decided to turn around and Jeff came with. With about 1.5 miles to go I told Jeff to go it alone and I would work my way in.

I finished the day with 12.34 miles…Happy but could have been faster!

Got out for a run tonight and put about 3 plus miles on the feet. As usual North Green Bay was busier in what ever direction I was headed!

Didn’t think that I’d be able to get this run in due to the meeting that was scheduled for tonight but meeting got canceled and I told myself that I had to get a few miles in so I did. 2 miles

Got an early start with the running group on a very humid day – not sure how well this is going to go! I got 3 miles in before meeting up with the rest of the group. The Culver’s run is difficult due to two major issues: lack of shade and the up hill on the way back to the start.

Started out slowly but after discussions turned political the pace picked up quite a bit. After another 3.5 miles I needed to slow down and relax. I ended up walking the last 1.5 -2 miles back to the car with Jud…we had a fantastic conversation!

Ended the day with 9 miles on the feet – too bad they weren’t all running miles!!
