The 39th Annual Boston Buildup Winter Series 2017 10k



My first race of 2017 this morning at 10:00am  and I am still feeling awesome.  It felt so good being out and in a race. I haven't raced since my Thanksgiving day 10k. I just could not get myself out to do any at all in December. I cared nothing about my pace, I just wanted to run.  The course is the same course that I've run for the last 13 years but today it felt different.  I usually don't remember a course until I run them again but today I felt part of the course changed. I was told  the  course dis not change and I am only noticing it now because I am running much leisurely now, lol. Today none of that mattered and I felt great after the race with lots of energy.

The turned out  to be awonderful day after the prior nights  snow and rain. You still had to use some caution on the roads although it  may have seemed I was the only one taking this caution thing into consideration!. I run with some really fast people.

The 10k course starts out fairly flat for the first 2.5 miles,  it is the middle miles that gets you every time then the last hill about 1 mile to the end. 

The miles that I have put in so for in 2017 are mostly treadmill runs and not many at that which is very unusual for me.  I am having a very slow start this year.   

                                                                                            
The best part of your 1st race of the year is when you see people you haven't seen in a long time.

Old Post Shared on FB

I came across an old post I posted on FB in 2012, this is what got back here today.  I really do hope to come back here more often. Life is still very busy for me as usual.  My miles have drastically dropped from what it use to be.  I'm am still racing a lot and I don't believe that will change no matter how much slower I am now.   I struggled through the 2016 challenged and made it! I am going for the 2017 challenged this year, this is really to keep me focus and keep going.

This week was an unusually rough start of the New Year for me.  Did not get much done in regards to my working out .  I will have my first race of 2017 tomorrow, the weather is not looking great.  I will be sharing my race experiences again.  Wishing all of you a happy healthy new year!

Looking Forward to 2014

I don't know how every year goes by so fast, year after year. 2014 and I still really have no clue as to how to get from point A to B. I look forward to doing much of that again this year. This is who I have become, a person of lost identity with no real direction. Wow what a way to start the New Year! No I will not...I don't think I will...no I don't think so.




I will take it one day at a time and do the best I know how. I will always ask God guidance, he will know what is right for me. I shall only hope that I do right by him.



I have learned what it is like to go through life with no real directions, just to live and let live. I am sure you are thinking this is a whole lot of nothing; yes you are correct because I really have nothing more creative to say. I will try to post more this year. I want to wish all a happy and healthy New Year. Below are the races I ran in 2013 and am sure there are a few missing but I’m ok with it. Hoping 2014 will bring some PR’s

I am sitting here thinking about so much, still not sure about my training.  I am not getting out early enough to get the miles in like I should.  I know I need to take control but haven't got a clue. 

Saturday, July 20, 2013

This is the 3rd time I am trying to write the same post now.  I wasn't able to post any thing the last two weeks kept getting an error message but could not find help with the issue.  I am now going to make this really quick. Today I did the Westport 4.1 miler, It felt like chicken soup out there. My only goal was to finish. I was very sensible and took it very easy.  I now bring my water bottle with me on every run and in every race it just makes sense. I manage to finish just under 40 minutes which was fine with me on a day like today I was happy to finish. I went into the water after the race and that made it so worth it. Well there you have it not much I know but I have a feeling I will be coming back here more often than not.
