  • Day376 small run

    I had one of the best runs last night. It was just 10k. Just nice distance. I ran too many long miles and those were slugfest. I like short and fast runs. It felt fast to me though the time showed otherwise. I felt I ran the fastest ever. Zoom Zoom. Due to corona virus, […]

    I was training for Seneca 50 Mile run over the weekend. The good news is it will take place. The race organizer won the appeal and gathered all tge necessary permits. I signed up last month when they posted they got the permission from a local school to stage their start and finish line on […]

    Day 188 JFK prep There are a lot things to say. The most important was I was out on the trail running again. I haven’t run that much due to various reasons. Weather, scheduling conflict, and probably plain laziness. I ran on Tuesday. Didn’t do it on Wednesday because of church. Thursday was because of […]

  • Filler post

    Day 149 Sometimes in TV shows or especially in long anime series, they would put in fillers because the writer needs some time off. I hope this is not a filler but I don’t really have anything in particular I want to write about. Maybe it is a filler. I just finished my last dose […]

  • Pre race

    Day 143 It is two days before the race. I signed up for Jack and Jill downhill marathon back in who know when. It is my first far away (Seattle) marathon. I had to book a flight and hotel and car rental. I have been eyeing this race since when I first heard maybe back […]
