I'm not crazy...I'm just bored!!

Dave and Chad chased me down and left me in their dust. My legs are SHOT from Wire yesterday. Crazy I tell you, just crazy. A great early morning trail run, hopefully my legs recover quickly...</p> <p>I then met with Marci Simons to do personal training. It was good today. A challenging workout, but I felt strong and like it was exactly what I needed.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 14 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 13, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-13-2016.html <p>Mt Wire - 200 ft elevation gain in the 2 miles. Up wasn&#39;t the problem...down was! I ran 3 marathons in 3 days and my legs were fine. 4 miles on Wire and my legs are SHOT. But, gotta get the vert training for speedgoat in now.</p> Mon, 13 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 11, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-11-2016.html <p>The last marathon of the trifecta. We started and stayed in front of the attitude ladies. So, even though we all beat them every day it was nice to never have them in front of us today! A great race and I was feeling better and the cloud cover was perfect and so was the weather! Craig brought me a coke at mile 21, always welcome! The kids ran a bit with me around mile 24 and then up the nasty hill they threw in for fun at the end. Marci busted a move up the hill and then raced into the finish. I didn&#39;t want to run UP the hill, but I couldn&#39;t ever catch her after that. My last mile was a 7:40AP...so, I tried. But after 3 marathons 3 days in a row, I just didn&#39;t have the umph. But, Marci deserved to &quot;win&quot; one between the three of us. Plus her family was watching and it just wasn&#39;t worth it.&nbsp;</p> <p>I love this race series and doing 3 marathons in 3 days is challenging, but being with friends and getting good rest and food makes it incredible! I&#39;m already in for next year...</p> Sat, 11 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Fri, Jun 10, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-10-2016.html <p>Starts in Montpeilier, goes past the airport, through Dinkel, on the East side of the lake, across the causeway then finishes in St Charles. I ran the first 14 with Marci and Kaylee, but I woke up ornery and just wanted to run alone. I wasn&#39;t in the mood for chatting, stopping and everything else. So other than stopping at aid stations I ran a pretty decent pace the 2nd half. Marci and Kaylee finished 15 minutes later. Hot and all the salty snacks were gone...kind of disappointed in the snacks, after you have them the first day it is hard to not count on them and want them the second day. But, I had enough to keep me satisfied. Pope gave me a Mtn Dew at mile 22 and that was exactly what I needed!!!</p> Fri, 10 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 09, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-09-2016.html <p>Starts in Cokeville and does an out and back...boring course! But, this year it was cool, the mosquitos weren&#39;t out to kill you and between Marci and Kaylee I had awesome company. Just screwed around and stopped at pretty much every aid station. So, the pace is slow, but my last mile was a sub 8mm, so I can&#39;t complain too much!</p> Thu, 09 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 08, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-08-2016.html <p>slept in again, got work done then headed up to Montpeilier to help with packet pick up.</p> Wed, 08 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 07, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-07-2016.html <p>Quick, short run with the Newtons. Attempting to taper for this weekend.&nbsp;</p> <p>I did meet Marci for training, but we did mostly arms and core. I really like working out with her!</p> Tue, 07 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Mon, Jun 06, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-06-2016.html <p>slept in...I needed it! Then it was too hot to do anything anyway, so I relaxed and enjoyed working all day :)&nbsp;</p> Mon, 06 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Sat, Jun 04, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-04-2016.html <p>Pacing the 2:00 crew at Thelma and Louise with Becca.</p> <p>It was fun to spend the ride with Christine, the night with QP, Christine and Becca and to watch Becca kill pacing at 5 months pregnant. A weekend to never forget. I seriously LOVE this race!!!!</p> <p>Oh, and I took a cooler of ice cream sandwiches and dry ice down...became the poison car!</p> Sat, 04 Jun 2016 06:00:00 Tue, May 31, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-31-2016.html <p>Tuesday Ten with the Newtons&nbsp;</p> Tue, 31 May 2016 06:00:00 Mon, May 30, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-30-2016.html <p>Memorial day celebration ride with Kelli. Down to Cedar Fort and back. A good push, but not enough to kill my legs. Then the afternoon I spent rock climbing in rock canyon with Craig for his birthday yesterday.&nbsp;</p> Mon, 30 May 2016 06:00:00 Sat, May 28, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-28-2016.html <p>Pacing TOSH with Marci (4:30 group)</p> <p>lots of new friends, course was .2 short on my garmin and no mile markers...so we finished 2 minutes early, which would&#39;ve been perfect pacing if the course was accurate to our garmins.</p> Sat, 28 May 2016 06:00:00 Sat, May 21, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-21-2016.html <p>Rainy day pushing Reese. A wonderful opportunity and great time spent with Marci.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I wrote my report and it didn&#39;t get saved...I&#39;m being lazy now.</p> Sat, 21 May 2016 06:00:00 Fri, May 20, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-20-2016.html <p>Loaded up the stroller again and met a good friend Christine Scott on the old Urban trail loop. We just went out and back on the canal road and I ended up with 2 flat tires half way through...so it wasn&#39;t easy for me, but she was wonderfully patient with me too! We had a great run and chat and I don&#39;t regret a second of it! Hopefully these 15 miles of pushing a stroller will help me tomorrow when I&#39;m pushing Reese for 26.2 miles....</p> Fri, 20 May 2016 06:00:00 Thu, May 19, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-19-2016.html <p>The newtons all ditched me for Shaggy Mountain, so I loaded up the baby and met Kelli at 8:30 and did a stroller run. She was wonderfully patient with my slow pace pushing the stroller into the wind. At least Taylee is only 13 pounds and not Adam&#39;s 40!!</p> <p>AP: 9:00 splits: 8:55, 8:19, 8:38, 9:07, 8:47, 9:14, 9:11, 9:30, 9:21</p> Thu, 19 May 2016 06:00:00 Wed, May 18, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-18-2016.html <p>I went on a nice long bike ride with Kelli. It is nice to switch things up sometimes and with Spudman coming I need to get out on the bike more!! A nice 15MPH average pace and we weren&#39;t pushing, just a nice chatty ride. I loved it!!</p> Wed, 18 May 2016 06:00:00 Tue, May 17, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-17-2016.html <p>Regular Tuesday 10. Met Chad, Danielle and Mike and we ran the loop together. &nbsp;I did a pretty normal time for myself, as of late, at 1:23:23 8:15 AP. I&#39;d like to get back to 1:20-1:21 on a regular basis. Slowly but surely, right???&nbsp;</p> <p>It was great to have good company and we chatted pretty much the enitre way! I didn&#39;t get left behind :) I always had someone with me. That is just exactly what makes me happy!!</p> Tue, 17 May 2016 06:00:00 Mon, May 16, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-16-2016.html <p>Met Karolynn Kay at daybreak lake to have a nice morning run. She is a wonderful person and I&#39;m glad I made the connection with her. I was late (surprised???) and so we did almost 5 together, so I went out to round out the miles, but just got enjoying the road and so I ran to the top of 10200S so that I could run back DOWN! It was nice and I finished with exactly 7 miles. I love it when things work out well.</p> <p>AP: 8:24 splits: 8:27, 8:15, 8:33, 8:38, 8:47, 8:44, 7:26</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> Mon, 16 May 2016 06:00:00 Sat, May 14, 2016 http://RADRunning.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-14-2016.html <p>Pacing 1:45 at Vigor. I got there late, but at least got on a bus and had good friends to chat with. Other than forgetting to register for SGM by yesterday at midnight, it was a great morning.&nbsp;</p> <p>Met Lisa at the top and since it was her wedding day, Laura brought all of us running with her a red flower to wear. It was fun! She ran with me until mile 11 when I had to slow down to hit my pace time. Finished right on time and with nice compliments from some great people about my pacing.&nbsp;</p> <p>We walked back on the course and then ran Laura and Cahty in, which is always fun! Came home, grabbed a nap, got some stuff done and headed off to Lisa&#39;s amazing wedding!</p> Sat, 14 May 2016 06:00:00
