Army Ten Miler Race Report

Recap:

“Dude, you ready to crush this?”  That’s what I said as I turned around on my way to the race and saw my buddy from Capital Area Runners in the same metro car. That’s not exactly how I felt.

I had set a two second PR in the 5K two weeks prior, but I hadn’t had a quality long run or long race since I was out for a month injured in June.

Injury

How did it happen?

I was in the kitchen making dinner and I had left my cell phone and a glass of water on the coffee table. Cody, our new dog a six month old pitbull mix, is in the habit of tipping over glasses on the coffee table. I heard him making noises in the living room and the image of my new iphone drenched in water flashed through my mind.

Baltimore Half Marathon Race Strategy

The Baltimore Half Marathon is going to be a hilly course, but I’m hoping to set a PR. I found myself in a similar situation six months ago facing the National Half.

With a straight upwards climb on Connecticut Ave and rollers on Colombia Rd the National Half isn’t ideal to PR.
