Run As One!
The NYRR Run As One race was today! The course was exactly the same as the 4 mile Run for the Parks course, and after greatly exceeding my expectations last week by running with a 7:43 min/mi. pace, I was worried I had set myself up for disappointment this time around. Boy was I wrong. [RunKeeper] I beat my previous time by nearly 1:30 and improved my pace a full 20 seconds! Plus I placed...
So our little running group had it’s first injury occur today. Allison took a spill on an uneven sidewalk about a third of a mile in and scraped up her knees.

Matt and I...

Overexplaining this tumblr
While I’ve logged every run I’ve done with RunKeeper (with one exception), I’ve decided I want to have more than just numbers and maps to chronicle my running “career.” This blog will be where I log my runs with words and photos, as well as a place to share running-related thoughts, music, etc. While I have an existing blog on tumblr, I thought it was appropriate to separate the random stuff I...
