Operation 2011/365

Operation 2001/365 is still in effect. Only this time LC has logged in first and I have to do a rebuttal. First off LC, Congratultions on qualifying for the Boston marathon. That takes a lot of dedication and a lot of hard work. The offer is still on the table if you decide to run, You can borrow my N Y yankees shirt.The crowd around Fenway Park will love it. I can almost assure you will have a fast time wearing it. I have to admit LC has me on mileage, I have 545 at the 90 day mark, But my objective is to finish the year with excatly 2011 miles.

Just ran Witchback

I decided to give the trail another shot today. I ran on Witchback, another try at prepping for the Green Legs and Hamstrings race next week.  This time was much better. I didn't fall, and I didn't get lost! It was pretty hilly, but call me crazy, I like hills. One of my favorite races is the Goodyear Race simply because of the hills. I'm actually pretty sad I have to miss it this year. It falls on the same day as the Cooper River Bridge Run in Charleston, SC. I will be attending that with 40,000 other happy runners.

Operation 2011/365 : 60 days

If you Want to Go Farther, Get Lost.

I hope this isn't breaking any website rules about linking to other blogs or anything, but I thought you might enjoy reading the blog I just wrote about running the Crooked Stick trail at Angler's Ridge last weekend.  It was quite an adventure!! It doesn't seem to want to let me copy and paste, so here's the link:

Well today marks the 30 day point of Operation 2011/365. As of today I have 148 miles and 30 days straight. Still a long way to go. So far I have not had to hit the treadmill,even though those 8 degree mornings were a little rough.My longest run to date has been 12 miles and the shortest has been 3 miles. Most runs are in the 4 - 6 mile range, with long runs being on Saturday mornings. No injuries to report at this point.
