On the DL (Disabled List)

In: fitness, running, stress fracture

After both the Disneyland Half-Marathon and the Dirty 6 Mud Run, I was having issues with my shins, ankle, and knee. I thought it was just tendons/ligaments that got strained and needed time to repair. So I’d take a week or two off here or there and go back to running. Since my last post […]

Just Keep Swimming

I promise a 2011 Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta update is coming, but I haven’t uploaded and edited the photos yet, so this time it’s a triathlon training blog entry. Since the Dirty 6 Mud Run where I jammed my knee a few weeks ago, it’s been a challenge to get out there and run. The first […]

First Long Run – Lessons Learned

In: fitness, running

Last Saturday Chuck & I did our first “long” run of 6.4 miles in preparation for our half-marathon. We’re both new to running (myself more than him), and we learn something new every run. This was a chance to test our bodies to see what happens – how far can we go and how much […]
