I ran in the Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon in New Orleans this weekend.  It was a blast and I accomplished a new PR.  It was a lively event and very flat.  Perfect day for a fast run.

Damn, HP.  That is a fast pace for a half distance. Lactic Acid buildup always causes me to run slower pace over that distance.

Just started running about 4 months ago.  Working on getting my first 5K.  Started out at a 31:07 5k time.  My goal was to be at 24:00 by September when I run one in Memphis.  Last week I hit 24:03 (so close!!!!).  Now trying to make my goal closer to 20:00.  Last time I ran over a mile was in middle school, so just getting out there is a big step for me.

My Ghost 7's were the bomb!  Love those shoes and I still wear them.  I've got the Ghost 8 and don't feel the same way about them.

Found local place that sold them... so was able to buy just one to test. Did a 27-mile bike ride and my calf muscle didn't cramp but my foot did.

Ran my first marathon this past Saturday in Memphis for the St. Jude's Children's hospital.  Not bad for someone who just about lost his legs in a motorcycle accident back in 2008.  Never even had a goal to run 26.2 miles until about a year ago.

Thanks! My next one is actually on the 17th in Little Rock for the 3 Bridges Marathon. Might as well keep running them while I'm in marathon shape!

3 Bridges is a good one, laid back and flat.  And you're right, getting in shape to run that first one is the hard part.  Once you're in shape, keeping on running them is a lot easier!  Just don't push it too hard.

The Mississippi Blues in Jackson is a really good one for early January.

Running 2 marathons in 2 weeks was a bit much. My legs hadn't recovered so they fizzled out at mile 18. I walked/trotted to mile 22 before had the energy to run the rest. Hardest run of my life. But I did qualify for Marathon Maniacs! It's been a long time goal of mine.

I received an invite to run the the NY Half  in March of 2017.  Needless to say I'm pretty excited about it.  I didn't get an auto qualify (my age group was 1:27 :o) but I entered the lottery based on previous GP races and was selected.

Long work days and short sunlight hours put a little hold on riding. But plan on picking back up soon, hitting the gym a lot more as of late though!

That is cool. BQ is a pipe dream for me.  I don't think I can do much better than around 4 hours in a marathon. My legs got pretty jacked up from my bike accident, and I just can't put the training miles in like I need to.

Yea I think I may have maxed out on pace.  Although I would love to go sub 1:30 on the half, I'm just not willing to contort my body into being only a runner.  I still enjoy HIIT and occasionally lifting weights.

Getting older sucks. I've fought shin splints, Achilles tendinitis, and turf toe the past 3 months. I have a 20 miler tomorrow morning. Training for the Little Rock marathon in March.

This is cool. I've put my name in the hat for the NY marathon later this year. Lottery is my only chance and it is only a slim chance since invite is only around 18%! And I can't run a sub 2:30 marathon!

This is great! Setting goals is what keeps me motivated. I've had a goal of a sub 20 5K, but my body can't handle the training it'd take for me. I got down to 21 minutes before injury set me back 6 months. I did run a 20:04 in high school. So pissed as I could have found 5 seconds on that course.

Well, I did PR the Little Rock Marathon, but didn't break 4 hours as hoped.  The wet weather and the darned hills in the last half slowed me.

Man, it was a great event!  Running thru Central Park was really cool.  The hills were a little deceiving bc they were not too steep but really long.  Its basically the tale of two races.  The first 6.3 miles was hilly and then you leave CP running through Times Square.  That was the most spectators I had ever seen!  The adrenaline was pumping too!  I had to slow down bc I was running about a 6:30/mile pace and knew I had a challenging stretch coming.  We left TS and headed south down West Avenue, along the Hudson River.  It was long and windy!!  It was the first 1/2 that I was not going for a time but rather really "soaking" it in.  I ended up running a 7:27/mile pace but more importantly, I really enjoyed the event!  I'll try to load a short video later where I stopped and kissed my wife and daughter in Times Square.

If you ever get the chance to run in it, go for it!  Great, great 1/2 marathon!

That is damn fast! Fastest half I've ever run was at an 8:09 pace. I couldn't do it now. Great photos BTW.

I put my name in for the NY Marathon lottery earlier this month, but failed to make it.  Hopefully one of these years I will get in. It has more spectators than any marathon in the country!
