Here is a brief list of my most recent races.

Unfortunately, like a backup Quarterback's late game heroics, history has taken my previous results.

Snow Cheap #4 Winter Run

Winter Warrior Half Half Marathon

1:46:07 5 laps around Monroe Community College. One half of the loop was cold wind in the face, hard breathing. Other half was darn near mild. My goal was to run 8:00/mi or thereabouts. Ran without my watch to see if I could do it by feel. Felt relaxed through the whole race.

42:05 So the fun here was trying to stay warm during the time between Stage 1 and Stage 2. Luckily, there was an awesome crew with some pancakes and a grill. Loosened up with a quick 1 mile warm-up before race start. Don't remember much about these 5 miles, just kept pushing when I felt tired.
