2.11 miles in Los Altos, California

I really needed this challenge to get me out of a funk I was in. Early in the year I was reduced to very little running mostly walking for like two months. I was still getting in 20 miles per week but you don’t get in shape for running by walking. I kept eating the same and gained seven pounds as I mentioned before. So this weekend I covered 19 miles of which at least 16 was running. And this last mile tonight with a hill was 8:52. I didn’t even feel like walking before I started. Part of this course runs through the Los Altos Golf course. Go team! (Sun 15)

I think it is important to include walking in your routine. I think your muscles recovery better and faster. However, walking is not going to improve our running. But it will help in preventing injuries. You covered a lot of miles yesterday. You needed this. Go team! 7/15 6:24 pm

6.44 miles in Palo Alto, California

It is a real bonus when your course has a water fountain on it. My Los Altos to Stanford course has this one at about the 4.7 mile mark. Perfect spot. Ran/walk the first mile to get my legs moving again. But once I got going things fill into place. Just didn’t push it. I am up weight by about seven pounds and I can sure tell it. Catherine makes such amazing meals and with a nice bottle of red, presto seven pounds. But these added miles I am getting in because of this challenge is helping. I normally run 20-24 miles per week. Go team! (Sun 15)

6.50 miles in Nascatucket state Park Mattapoisett (US)

After yesterday I needed a nice easy recovery run and it had to be slow. I decided to run on the trails as it guarantees you run slower. I was thinking 45 easy minutes but once on the trails nature takes over and you feel the need to run. I love the woods. Just major tick inspection after run. 63 minutes was fantastic. Ready to go tomorrow (Sun 15)

This looks like an amazing trail but as you said, you can’t run fast on sections like this. How much of the Trail looks like this? Go Geoff! Go team! 7/15 12:12 pm

Bob, I see your comments but don't see any options to reply. Did my 4-mile easy recovery run. I pledged 40 mpw for this challenge and expect to get up to that within the next week or so. I'm in the beginning of my 16-week marathon training cycle so my weekly mileage is still low in the 30's. Will be increasing mileage as my coach prescribes. (Sun 15)

12.00 miles in Elk Mountain-Kings Mountain Loop, Oregon

Elk-Kings loop is a very challenging- but equally rewarding route in the Oregon Coast Range. Much of the trail is rock-scrambing, so it's slow going- it's around 4,000' of total climbing- but man what a workout! And amazing views. If you look closely at the photo, near the middle,you can see Mt. Hood, Oregon's tallest mountain, off in the distance. (Sat 14)

16.00 miles in Brentwood, CA

Long run. Was very hot in the 90s, but I pushed through somehow and got it done. Almost called it quits and was going to call my hubby about halfway through as I ran out of hydration. Decided to push through and stopped at Safeway for a couple bottles of electrolyte drinks after a guy on a bike cheered me on while I was running up a hill :-) Sometimes it's the little things like this that keep me going when I'm having a rough run. Had to take a selfie with some goats. They work to keep control of the dry grass, which can help with fire prevention in the California heat. (Sat 14)
Share
Wow, 16 miles in the heat! The little things as you mentioned are so special. Love the photo. Who ever came up with this idea should get a gold star. What a great way to keep the dry grass in check. 85 miles in 11 days! Way to go. Go team! 7/15 2:50 am

Just a half mile from my house is this hidden trail. It is only about three quarters of a mile long but it is a cool path. It is rugged.

2.25 miles in Ontario, CA

I must admit.... FOR ME, treadmill running is difficult. My mind gets in the way and I find myself staring at the screen waiting for the odometer to move up... One slow (and, I mean slow) tenth of a mile at a time. Today I had big plans to go 3 and I tried hard, I really did but I'm still just getting back to running so when the 2 mile marker clicked over, I realized that 3 may be too much today. It was a good workout and I'm glad I did it. Its not a huge contribution to the team but, every mile counts. Pictured here with me is my daughter who worked out with me today too! (Sat 14)

Crazy day. Got up at 2.30 am and drove 4 hours to Rockaway. Helped at registration for the Half Marathon. At 7:30. Watched the race. Then ran the 5k at 9:30 Ran with a friend for two miles then I picked up the pace for the last mile. A hot day on the boardwalk but a nice ocean breeze to cool you down. Social time after with a breakfast brunch provided at the Awards in the Community House Bar. Then I had to make the long drive home to Mattapoisett. A long but enjoyable day spent with friends doing what I like to do. I’ll be ready for tomorrow’s run. Does anyone recognize the young lady in the photo. She is pretty good. (Sat 14)
