Had a lovely Christmas Day run.  Just a few miles around the neighborhood.  Had a great set of weekend runs.  I charted a new eight mile course on Saturday.  Then met up with the Sunday group (ten of us, in all) for a twelve mile run.  Not planning to get too serious this week.

One Week Later

The Mount Pleasant Sunday morning crowd was sparse, just three of us.  Since I'm still in my post marathon hobbling mode, I'm fine with a smaller crowd.  Only made it about eight today.  I will start ramping things up next week.

The weather was superb.   The top of the bridge was above the fog, so we had a photo worthy view of the sunrise.  Wish every week was like that.

Kiawah Marathon

In 1990, I ran the Kiawah Marathon in 2:59:45.  A PR which stood until the 2009 Marine Corps.  Yesterday, 22 years later, I managed to hang on for 2:56:55, a new PR.  1st in AG, 18th overall, and the first local across the line.  My fourth sub-3:00.

That's enough bragging.  Not sure when I'll put another marathon on my calendar.  Now thinking about the Mt. Mitchell Challenge.

Move to Mount Pleasant

I have finished my move to Mount Pleasant and am now an East of the Cooper runner.  I'm now figuring out new running routes.  Mercifully, since I'm only moving across town, I'm already acquainted with the local running crowd.  Hopefully I can keep this blog back up to date.

Hot Weather

Went for a long run on Saturday and things were hot.  Then had to work the Charleston Sprint Tri on Sunday.  On the plus side, I got to meet two NASCAR drivers who participated.

I plan to be there this Sunday for our long run.  Hopefully things will be a little cooler.

Happy 4th

Adam and I had a good short run this past Sunday.  It was a good day to go short and slow. 

Good luck to anyone racing this week.  What with the heat, I plan to run a slow race on Wednesday.  Otherwise, stay cool and see everyone this Sunday at 6:30.

6:30 Start Time

Our Sunday runs will now begin at 6:30 a.m.

Okay, it's been a while since I've posted.  But the group has still been meeting faithfully each Sunday morning.  We've had pleasant tempuratures in June up until this past Sunday.  It was clear to Matt, Ann and me that things were a bit warm for a seven o'clock start.

See everyone at 6:30.
