Well it's 2009! Still haven't penned my goals yet, but they'll come. Got called into work, so I decided to hit the Tm when I got home. The roads are still a little ify up here. Warmed up with 2 miles then decided to hit a nice 5k mile 3, 6:58, mile 4 6:53, mile 5 6:49 then had a cool down mile with a pick on the last .25. Incline 1.0. Felt really good. That's a good sign. Count down to the Rock-n-Rolla on the 18th.

Big A Tm run this morning. Was looking forward to hitting the streets of Eden but thanks to the snow last night and Jamie being out and about I took advantage of some down time. Wanted to get at least 80 mins in so, started at  8:27 and worked down to 6:40. Kept the incline at 1.0 for the run. Felt really good, I need to hit the pavement though. Looking forward to Phoenix! Hope my feet show up.

Awesome! noon day run. Sun was up so, I headed out. Almost made today a rest day after I didn't get out early until I saw gdoc's run... it motivated me. Did the Shane extension Middle Fork Loop to my Parent house. Roads were great except for the dirt road pure ice. Had to slow it down quite a bit through there. Hard to beat.

Here's the short side... Awesome race this morning. Me and three of my bro's headed down for the sun of Phoenix to race in the Rock 'n' Roll Arizona.

They said there were just over 25,000 runners registered for the half marathon! That is insane. Looking at the web site 21,985 finished the race! Insanity abounds. As for the race details... I'm not actually sure what my exact finish time is. They had 26 corrals set up to handle the people. I made it into the first corral, but was lined up about 30 yards behind the start line. A PR by over 2 minutes!

Course: Running through suburia! Slight uphill until just past mile 10! so, no real break until then.

Mile 1: 7:11 - feeling good trying to hold back from running crazy! As I mention started in corral 1 and with a lot o' people.

Mile 2: 7:05 - feeling great live bands, cheerleaders...

Mile 3: 7:10 - cyto max!

Mile 4:  7:11 - running, still feeling good and holding back.

Mile 5: 7:16 - I tried taking a sip or two of cyto max and water at every aid station.

Mile 6: 7:11 - Belly Dancers!

Mile 7: 7:17 - High fiving a few groups of cheerleaders.

Mile 8: 7:14 - Just finished the crazy straight strech. Mile 4 to almost mile 8.

Mile 9: 7:20 - Lost focus a bit here.

Mile 10: 7:35 - Slowest mile of the race. The races only substantial hill. Took a GU and that rechared me a bit. Where'd all the cheerleaders go?

Mile 11: 7:21 - The 1:35 pacer guy catches me here. So, that was some added motivation to kick in the last couple miles.

Mile 12: 7:09 - Dusted 1:35 pacer guy. So, I was thinking I'm going to get my PR if I can hold on.

Mile 13: 6:59 - Sweet Mile 13 fastest mile of the day broke 7 minutes and feeling great.

Mile .10 - 5:51 pace.. It was a great race and the aftermath was fun and distracting. Almost 22,000 runners. Pure Chaos - That's why I do it.

Nice and easy recovery run. 3.1 miles on the Tm.. Legs didn't feel to bad. Probably could've pushed it a little more yesterday, but I felt like it was a great way to start the year off.

Early morning Tm run. Took yesterday off I think the legs appreciated it. Probably ended up avg around 8:15 for the run. Incline 1.0. Legs felt great though so, I'll take that as a good sign.

Hit Golds this afternoon! Man what a bummer of a run. I've been fighting off a cold for the last few days and it showed today. Couldn't really ever get my breathing settled down. Wanted to try for maybe 6-7 only made it to 5 and called it a day. Avg pace probably around 7:47.  Good recovery week - though!

Awesome/Freezing Middle Fork Loop run with Shane this morning. It was coooold. I think my face froze up and is barely starting to thaw out. Beautiful morning though. Mountains, snow hard to beat. We avg right around 8:20-30 for the run. Great way to end the month.
