Personal:

I live in Kauai, Hawaii with my wife and 3 kids.  I ran x-country and track in high school. I had too much fun in college and never tried out for the teams. I graduated from BYU Provo.

Lunch - 5.0 miles.  With my super long race (8 miles) this weekend I'm going to cut back the miles.  I wish I could run 60 or more miles a week like some of you elites on here and do some marathons but I'm just not dedicated enough to get up early...... but I hope to someday.

Well today was the race I have trained for in the last 5 weeks.  I know 5 weeks isn't a long time but 8 miles isn't a long race either.  Overall I am very happy with my time.  I don't know the mile splits except that the first mile was 5:42.  After 1-1/2 miles the pace felt slow so I took off and wish I could say never looked back but I did look back numerous times because of a pesky side ache that I had from miles 3 to the finish.  Even with the side ache and big hills I ran faster than I thought I could.  In the last 2 miles the 2nd place runner (who happens to be the 1st Hawaiian that finished the Boston Marathon this year) was gaining on me.  I did all I could to just hang on my pace and finished about 20 seconds ahead of him.  My only regret is that stupid side ache that wouldn't go away.... I'm just curious to see what my time would have been without getting a side ache.  Does anybody have tips on how to avoid side aches in races?  Almost every race I run these days I get a side ache.  I've tried eating and drinking different food before the race but maybe it isn't related to food?  I don't know.  Any ideas?

Lunch - 5.0 miles.  Felt good for a Monday.  I'm a little sore from the race on Saturday but not too bad.  I love the summer weather with less rain.

Lunch - 5.1 miles with 3x800 @ 2:35 on the track.  Felt pretty good, I wanted to do more 800s but I had to get back to work.  I only have 1 hour for lunch.  After work it looks like time for surfing...there is a great swell right now.

Lunch - 5.2 miles with Ty and Alina (Ty's neighbor friend) in the stroller. I was surprised how hard it was to push the stroller up the hills.  I think there should be some kind of conversion for pushing 60 pounds against wind because it definitely felt harder than 5.2 miles.

First day in a long time without running (besides Sundays).  I just couldn't fit it in and I was a little lazy.

Lunch - 5.0 miles.  Work is getting busier starting a new project.  I really hope I can continue to run at lunch.  The good thing is that the new project is exactly .5 miles from my house which is the closest I have ever been to work.  The furthest I have ever been was 14 miles but that was only for a few months.

Lunch - 4.6 miles.  I don't have any races coming up soon so it's hard to stay motivated to run a lot during the week.

Lunch - 4.6 miles with 3x400 on the track. I had to cut the track run short due to a bathroom break. I was happy that the 400s I did do were all under 69.

8 miles while the fam was sleeping and still sleeping.  Ty has been sick so he is taking a long nap today.  I went on a cool trail down the "fruit loop" road.

Lunch - 5 miles by the airport.  Only a couple weeks left until we move our office to a new location further from the beach.  I will be able to go home for lunch but I'll miss running by the ocean.
