A cup of coffee before I left work and a taped up foot and ankle made for a good fast run. Felt real sluggish the first half mile but after warming up I felt somewhat strong. Not great times but it was nice to finally pick up the pace. Getting ready for Saturday's 5k in ADS.

Just a nice easy jog in this 102 degree temps after a long day of work. I was shooting for mid 9 minute miles but surprisingly it was a bit faster. My left foot is still a little sore from yesterday's 5k. Just taking it easy because my favorite 5k of all times is coming up this Saturday, Addison's Oktoberfest. Can't wait.
Meant to write this yesterday, as a few of us from work ran the 30th WARR (World Airlines Road Race). This year it was held in Grapevine, TX. Each year it's held in a different location around the world. Last year was London and next year is somewhere in China. Ended up running a 23:32 5k which was a little faster than I was hoping for so it was a definitely a good day. Kelley and the kids supported me as they always do by cheering us all on. From Flexjet we had myself, Ed, Duane and Lindsey.

Just a couple

Had too much fun last night which resulted in a harder than normal workout. Felt pretty good though. Tomorrow is the WARR 5k in Grapevine

12 miles and our first cool weather day

Considering I got only 6 hours asleep and slammed two cups of coffee I was able to put in some consistent, yet slow, 12 miles this morning. Finally some cool temps but at a price of up to 20 mph winds from the north. Figured out along the way that I really need some new shoes. My left arch, right knee and right hip were taking a beating. Here's to everyone who was able to put in a long run on labor day.
