Getting There

 

Time goes by so fast. I am doing well, back in the office since June 9th. Still trying to stay focused. What I missed most about WFH : I did not have to allow time to get to the office! 

My running is going well and I am still doing a race or 2 every weekend. Grateful for what we are able to do now. 

I am noticing the cancellation of some races again and some are ones that were rescheduled. I have been hesitant with registering out of state races. I put off Chicago to 2022 because I don’t believe all the races rescheduled to the fall will happen.

I need to get myself out the door in the morning in order to get a decent run in, we’re losing daylight and I won’t be able split my runs in half any longer.

I should be in bed now, hope to be back soon!

 What a great evening, I got out late again for my run only to get  in a few miles. Work has been taking over my life lately. Getting out late in the mornings and late in the evenings only to get a few miles in. This is killing me as everyone knows I’m a mile packer.

Rained quite a few days into the weekend. Ran my Saturday morning run with the Joggers Club in Westport. Happy with the 7 miler  I completed before the rain started.  The rest of the day I spent at the hospital with mommy as she had been complaining about swollen legs. We had her scheduled for an appointment with her Doctor for Wednesday. She had seen another Doctor just a few days before, They would only let one of us in with her so there I was in my car waiting , my sister texted me of procedures as they took place. They did a number of tests EKG, ultrasound, scat scan and blood test. They found nothing major 🙏🏽  

I would have normally ran 3 races over the Memorial Day weekend, but as we are gradually getting back to in person racing I was only able to do the the 57th annual Jim Fixx Memorial Day Road Race, shortened to a 5k. Great turnout of over 250 people. I’m not sure what happened I felt good and the weather was great but wasn’t too happy with my result. I did not do well on the hills this year. 

I hope there’s not too many errors, I did it again, writing a post way past my bed time 🥱

 Wow, why do I  always start things so late?  I feel I have slacked off a great deal this month. I tried to get out every day, but this did not happen, missed a few days getting out the door.  I did managed to get well over 200 miles for the month though. I am on track with my challenge of  2021 miles in 2021. Honestly I fell a sleep for almost an hour so with that said, it is time to go to sleep.  Looking forward to April for sure!! .

Excuses

I will not allow excuses to creep in.  There is no excuse for signing on to my work station before going out for my run, huge mistake!.  I woke up late this morning and missed my track workout with Los Runners but was certain I would get out the door and do something. That did not happen, the harder I tried to get out the more stuck I was.  I was fully dress and ready to go out and there I sat in front of  my work station all day in my running attire. I finally had  to call it quits and around 5:00pm I went out for a much needed run, it was just getting dark so I prepared myself for a night run. I returned from my run and started working again. Happy I got in some miles.  this too shall pass.....or will it? God Bless, stay safe and healthy.

New Year : New Hope


 My year is off to a  good start.  I am trying to get out every day for at least 30 minutes, work days are long and I am finding it hard as usual to get out the door in the morning.

I have not decided to go back to the gym yet and will continue to run outside . I went out during the few days most would say "you're nuts" a little crazy I know but managed a few miles each time.

Today I had a great run with the Joggers Club. I did a half marathon and felt really good and finally got warmed up at about mile 6, yes it took awhile lol.  

I hope to blog about my runs more this year, very relaxing and calming.  I will have more  to talk about in the near future.  Wishing you a Healthy and Happy New Year!!

Hi there

 I’m glad I found my blog again. With this year full of uncertainties I have managed to dig really deep and keep going with my passion of doing what I love to do, run. I feel so blessed to have this passion. 

I don’t believe I’ve missed many running days. I did the Waveny Summer XC Series which was basically the only real racing anywhere. Thankful to the RD Jim, who was very persistent in getting it approved by the town. We had something to look forward to weekly from May to the first week of September.

I kept myself involved by doing as many of the same races I do every year virtually. That means I kept up with the Norwalk and Westport Summer series as well and a few more races and challenges .

My Saturday running group the Joggers Club kept going through the summer since the Series were cancelled. I was grateful as I had an activity to attend every Saturday which helped with a lot of the Virtual racing I was doing. I will continue until we are back to some normalcy hopefully in the near future.

I’ve just recently started doing track work again  with The Los Runners. I had my second session today it was tough a lot harder than my first. I really want to be consistent with this as I still have goals. 

I am still working from home and I just registered for a very important certification exam which I know will take away from my running in the coming weeks. I am in a 2020 in 2020 challenge but confident I will get it done as currently at about 1865 miles for the year.

Will be back soon to make another entry till then stay safe and well.

Hello

 I can not believe it’s been 2 years. I believe Facebook have taken over and now Strava. I am still running never gave up. I run every day as usual and I’m still struggling to get back on track. I am feeling stronger everyday. KMF (Keep Moving Forward ) is my mantra and this always get me through the tough times. 

I’ve been embracing this virtual racing to keep me motivated and to support the many races and causes I’ve come to love over the years.

Today I did the Norwalk 9 miler (virtual) in the rain ☔️ felt great as we would normally have sweltering weather. I completed the distance plus 1 mile . 

My times have declined over the last 5 years but haven’t let it stopped me from my passion. I’m still a mile packer.

Well that’s all for now. I hope to be back soon. God Bless and be safe.
