HDR Night at Joe Walker

I remember Tuesday nights last winter when there were 5 or 6 runners. Since I have been “taking names” this winter it has been an entirely different story. January’s weekly […]

Ride to school +

Like old times…

This morning we had yet another run on the aqueduct. My goal was to do 10 miles easy and then add 5 miles at marathon pace. I was not sure […]
