    Ran in a local running club race this morning. My goal is always to improve over the previous year and I ran 38 seconds faster this year than last year.



    When I first started running I would improve several minutes each year but my gains are getting less and less now. Got up to 215 lbs this spring, working on getting back down closer to 200, weighed in at 207 today.

    I run in the "Clydesdale" division so I can actually compete in my age group. I ended up 2nd today, some guy ran a 32 something around a 6:30 pace. He was wearing sandals!

    We made it a family affair this morning. My wife ran the 2 mile race with our son and I ran the 5 miler. We all ended up placing in our age groups and got medals. That was a first for us.



    Running in these monthly races sure helps me with my focus and motivation throughout the year. Very lucky to have a local running club that puts them on. The races are chip timed and cost only $5 to race if you are a member. A family membership is only $15 for the first family member and $3 for additional family members. Pretty good bang for the buck for sure.

    Thought I would share. Nathan

    I haven't done any marathon runs. Just a neighborhood runner here. Maybe one day when I have the time I will try one. They did get 2 new Concept 2 rowers at the gym this week. I added in the 2000 meter row. Great machines and much smoother than the old rower. I like it.

    12.41 mile run this morning down into a canyon and back up so some decent elevation change at least for around here. 8:59 avg pace which is my target right now for my long runs. My running streak is now at 11 days in a row averaging 6.8 miles per day over that time. Doing a lot more speed work during the week preparing for a 10K race coming up on September 13th. Should work out pretty good for getting me in shape for my mountain goat hunt starting September 20th!

    It's interesting seeing some of you guys posting your runs, pretty much where I was about 3 years ago, my goal that year was to be able to run 6 miles in under an hour and I had to work pretty hard to get there. Now that would be just a very easy run. If you stick with it you will see results.
