  • Day307 1000k done

    Even before I started out for the run I was not sure if I would finish tonight. I had only 16.5 miles left, which is a 0.5 mile less than the previous day, but it was not an easy 16 miler. The original plan was to split the run into two, a morning 5-6 miles […]

  • day283 run

    I was trying to run a bit farther yesterday, but my body gave out after 6 miles. I have been conditioning to do 6 miles every day and yesterday it bonkered on me after 6 miles. I dragged it out to 12. It was hot even at 6 pm! Last weekend I was freezing and […]

  • Day276 the other side

    total 7. GVRAT total 83 I thought it would be a quick one. I had on road shoes today instead of trail. For six days I wore trail shoes (my usual get to), but I have been running on road (sidewalks). So today, I said why not switch it up, let wear the road shoes […]

  • day275 normal run

    Day 6 into GVRAT. Put in 10k this morning. GVRAT is about 76 ish. I lost track. There is a site to log all this. I am aiming for 1250 miles, so it is still couple weeks away to reach 10%. I passed the 5% mark! I tried not to look at the ranking or […]

  • day274 run and rocket

    run 6 mi; GVRAT: lost count ~70 I think Today run was in no way easy. I remembered the encouragement from the race director who wrote something about getting the first step in and it gets easier once you started. I didn’t want to leave my bed this morning. I am no longer a morning […]

  • day273 weekly run summary

    I figure if I post about my GVRAT run every day, my readers will have blog fatigue, so I will go back to my old format of posting an update once a week, like I did for my training run. So this week so far, (Friday to Sunday) total 58 miles. So I will go […]

  • day272 recovery run

    Run#3 distance 10 mi, GVRAT 58 mi. I got lazy of measuring the distances on Google Map. I don’t know how to do it from the phone. There is some problem with the live tracking website, so I am running blind now until they fix it. Today run was kind of hard as expected. I […]

  • day271 long run

    #GVRAT run 2. today total 42. Overall total 48. I am a bit tired so might not be thinking straight but there are 100 ish more entries so if I don’t put it up, it will passed by and be forgotten. The longest I ever ran was back in November for the JFK 50 miler. […]

  • day270 here I go – rat race

    run1 – 6 miles this run. Total traveled for GVRAT so far 6 miles. I found myself something to rally around for next few months. When my Facebook notification popped up from one of my former race directors – with something like this: would you like to run across Tennessee? At first I was skeptical. […]
