Running Accomplishments:

I was an 800/1500 runner in high school and college, with PRs of 1:55 and 4:08. I've run as fast as 16:15 for 5k and 1:20 for a half, but my bests in recent years are 17:07 5k (Dec. '11), 37:40 10k (Jan. '12), 1:23:49 half (Sept. '08), 2:53:12 marathon (September '10), and 4:45:06 50k (March '10).

Short-Term Running Goals:

Late 2015/2016 races: 

— Seattle Soltice 10k (Dec. 19)

— Nookachamps half marathon (Jan. 16)

— Toyko Marathon (Feb. 28) 


I'm an editor at a newspaper in Bremerton, Washington and head coach of the Bremerton Jaguars youth track and field team.

Total Distance

Long run with Mike on Beach Drive. The best part of the morning was that it wasn't raining at 6 a.m. (90 percent chance today). At the start we hoped it would hold off until at least the mid-way point, which it did. But when the rain came, it really came. Soaked to the skin by the end. 

We paced fairly well today, hit between 7:20 and 7:40 miles most of the way out. Only one outlier under 7, though the last few were 7:05 to 7:10 (I think we just wanted to be done by then). I'd still like the long distance weekend runs to be a touch slower, especially as we close in on 20 miles.

Legs were a little heavy by the end, but nothing hurts or is giving me too much trouble. Definitely faster than the long trails run two weeks ago. 2:05:00.

Nice effort. Guess you didn't get the 10 inches of snow that came my way last night.
