                    Hey...good news there, John. Good to see you're on the comeback trail !

                    I've done my best to live the right way; I get up every morning and go to work each day...

                      2 in a row now!  good work John!

                        THKS Neil ==== I'm getting it going after a dismal winter.........Not running very fast, but at least I'm getting some mileage now.......

                          as you & I & most experienced runners on RA know, consistency & time on feet (duration/ mileage) are priority #1.  Anything else is built on a strong aerobic base.  speed comes later and/or at races.  anyway keep logging those  miles.   I'm confident you will pull off a string of those 100 mpm"s


                            Nice work!


                            I know the feeling. After like, 6 straight 100+ mile months, I was injured and missed by a lot in February. I woraked my way back up to 100+ the last two months, but life derailed me this time. Coaching obligations, and plain old life obligations made it difficult to hit that magic number. I'll be at 90 by Friday, but I still feel like I cheated myself. Still, life happens and anytime I can hit triple digits, I'm stoked.

                            Current PRs:

                            5K: 27:06 (11/10/12) | 5M: 44:03 (6/1/13) | 10K: 1:00:48 (7/4/12)

                            15K: 1:27:53 (3/17/13) | 10M: 1:30:25 (4/13/13) | HM: 1:59:55 (4/28/13)

                            Next race: Ashland 4th of July 10K

                              Way to go!  Congrats!
