Nice run in Central Park. Cool & breezy. Lots of folks in town out for a shakeout run before tomorrow’s half marathon. It’s been my dream for a couple of years to get healthy enough to run in a way that resembles even slightly what I know and remember from 50 years of running. A grateful glimpse today. Thank you universe. (Sat 16)

It’s a real relief to find that I can run again. I’m bumping up against my (lack of) fitness for this kind of running but not health issues that have prevented it for a long time. Lack of fitness is way easier than the latter. I saw the squirrel in the park on my walk home. He seemed quite impressed and happy for me too. (Mon 11)

Some black ice in the woods (rain last night and then a hard freeze) made it a bit slippery but not impossible. 2” of snow late today and sub zero tonight and tomorrow might mark the end of running the trail until spring. January 30th might be the latest into winter I’ve been in the woods on dry footing in memory. The last 2 weeks has been a breakthrough in terms of my heart having healed enough to run nonstop. An appointment with my Dr tomorrow to see if everything is as it seems. I think so. (Wed 30)

Another good January day. 45 & no snow on the trail. Things are coming along nicely. My 7 miles today was a new longest nonstop run in a year. A 9:49 first mile up the hill was a good sign, everything after was between 9:10 & 9:38. Steady. Ran out of gas in the last mile but hung in there. I’ve been through enough of the healing issues to know that it’s not a straight line. Today was a good day and I’m grateful for it. Tough days are bound to come too. I’ll listen to my body and be patient with it. This I know. (Sun 27)

Hmmm. My last mile yesterday was something of a harbinger for today. I finished up my longest run in a year in 9:18. I expected to struggle today but instead averaged 9:18 for 4. My last today in 9:06. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt even semi normal running and I’m here to say it feels good. (Wed 23)

Cold day. High temp of 11 and breezy. Brrr. Longest non stop run in about a year, slow as heck but faster than walking and thankfully it generated more heat too. Dr said it would take 6-8 months to heal up fully, I’m just a week past 7 months and about 900 miles of walking & jogging my way to being able to run a bit so I may be right on schedule. It’s hard to tell how much of my limitations are from lack of fitness and how much from healing still ahead. There was a rock band in the 60s called Blind Faith, yeah I’m going with that as my guiding principle, one step at a time. (Tue 22)

Bob, a day off for me but I just noticed that I’m being credited with about 125 miles in the current period that belong in the weeks between challenge 1 and 2. At the time I didn’t realize miles were being tracked between challenges. When I saw that you we’re pushing on to reach 100,000 miles I went back and put in the miles for the correct weeks but they appear to be showing up now and have pushed me to a place in the standings that I definitely have not earned. Can you fix? Do I need to do it on my end? Sorry about that. (Sun 20) / Total Miles 893.33 since 7/4/18

Larry, these are all miles logged since RTW Challenge 3 ended. Several people did not log in their miles between the Challenges. But these miles count toward us tracing our goal of 100,000 miles since we started July 4. Hopefully we will reach that goal before we start RTW Challenge 4. We are team in training...so you did it right. If anyone else have not logged all their miles since July 4, we need them too. 1/20 11:51 am

Well done. Well done! Just enough snow to not impact your running it appears. The flag is a nice touch. Is there a story behind it? 1/19 5:55 pm
Just noticed the photo is three years ago but it sounds like it looked pretty similar? 1/19 6:01 pm
Yes the picture is 3 years old. No camera, my phone freezes up below 30! Looked almost exactly the same. A bit more snow, maybe 1-2 inches. I don’t know for sure but I think the flag was put up post 9/11. It’s at about 3/4 miles on the way up the trail, just about where I get warmed up a little and a nice marker for a downhill homestretch on the way back. 1/20 7:34 am

9.65 miles in Trumbull (runner profile)

Didn’t feel like running today but all the way back in the 1970s I learned or noticed that when I didn’t feel running I often had the most satisfying runs. It was in the 30s, rainy & windy when I got to the trail. I was the only person there. I felt like stopping in the first 1/4 mile but figured I was already wet and out there and just kept going. After 4 miles I finally found a little bit of rhythm and decided to stop thinking about it and just run until I couldn’t. Longest run in at least 18 months. Way more miles over 10 minutes per than under 9 these days. My heart rate was higher than my Dr would like it. I’m sure I’ll pay for the irrationally exuberant exertion tomorrow but I’m good with that. (Sun 16)

Another steady 4. I always take Saturday off in hopes of a longer effort on Sunday. As I’ve gotten healthier and a little stronger, muscle memory from a lot of miles over a lot of years keeps my leg turnover higher than it should be for my fitness and for the pace I can manage now-a-days, that was the battle today.

Yesterday was an experiment to see whether I could do a little more work than usual and still recover. Today’s test was to be an easy 4 mi run. It was pretty evident early on that I hadn’t recovered. The first 2 miles on the trail climb about 200ft and my legs were seriously dead. I stopped at the turnaround and stretched for a few minutes and was surprised to find my legs and feel better on the way back, yes it was downhill but not usually quite so much difference in a given run. Tomorrow will definitely be just a walk to recover before trying again on Friday. (Wed 28)

Longest non stop run since last year and a little faster to boot. Healing is coming along right on the timetable the Dr. gave me and actually seems to be accelerating. I’m guessing all of the walking & attempts to walk and jog over the months developed more base fitness than it felt like at the time and finally the healing is catching up and letting me tap into it. A cold & breezy but beautiful day in the park and sunset is so early! Hard to believe the days are going to keep getting shorter for another month. (Fri 23)

Home for a few days over the holiday week. A long walk in Central Park was a nice way to recover from a couple of longer than usual runs in a row. Picture is from the east side of the park adjacent to Fifth Ave and the iconic Guggenheim Museum at 89th Street, not far from the long time headquarters of the New York Road Runners Club. Tomorrow night is Thanksgiving Eve I’ll do a favorite run through Central Park adjacent to the staging area for the Macy’s Parade where you can be near the big balloons being inflated for the next morning from a peaceful and empty vantage point in the park. Always magical. (Tue 20)

4 miles all running, back to back days. 5th time in 7 days. A good walk tomorrow will do the trick. Dreams do come true, if you want it enough. (Mon 19)

Great news. Wow, does that look sloppy. Did you run in that? Your dreams are coming true. Did you see the piece we put up in Running news Daily? Go team! 11/19 7:13 pm
I did see it. Thank you Bob! Luckily that was the worst of the footing. It was mostly clear. Have a great trip! 11/20 3:16 am

Slowly, very slowly, my strength is creeping back in. Ran & walked (40 x 175yds) alternating between running & walking for 4 miles (uphill) followed by a steady 4 mi jog back (downhill) at about 9:30 per mile. My 4th nonstop 4 mile run since Monday. Very muddy and slushy as the 6-8” of snow from Friday is melting quickly and leaving a sloppy mess. Happy to get off the pavement again so I’m not companing one bit. (Sun 18)

4.01 miles in Stratford (runner profile)

Forced off the trail and onto paved roads for the first time in months by 6-8” of early snow last night. Bright sunshine but very windy and cold. Feels more like January. Hope it’s not an indication of things to come and the beginning of a long winter. Oh well. Grateful to get another nonstop, slow 4 mile run. Another 3-5 months and things are supposed to get much better if my Dr has it right. I hope so! (Fri 16)

Seems like it is really early for this much snow. Could be a tough winter. Go team! 11/16 9:40 pm
Compared to what all of you In California are dealing with directly and indirectly as a result of the fires and smoke, we have no issues whatsoever. None. 11/17 4:09 am

Just made it. Freezing rain and sleet began just as I finished. Icing roads on the way home and now snowing at home as darkness sets in. (Thu 15)

Cold day. Chill factor in the 20s. Teens tonight and 3” of snow. Very early for this cold and for accumulating snow this far south. Ran a bit of fartlek on the uphill 2mi and a steady slow 2 miles back. All good. Bob. Almost finished answering your questions. Will send tonight or early tomorrow. (Wed 14)

Good walk in the woods for my rest day. Puddle jumping the whole way. Haven’t quite figured out how to get the layers right for powerwalking in the cold vs running. I definitely don’t generate quite the same heat. (Tue 13)

4.25 miles in Trumbull (runner profile)

Drove 4hrs back from Maine. Straight to the hospital for a CT scan and from there straight to the trail for a run. Walked the first 1/4 mile as a warmup and then a slow 4 mile run. Learning to slow down a bit more than the tempo my body would prefer to one that is sustainable at this point. My 3rd 4mi run in this past week. A little faster than a week ago and my HR a little lower too. All good. Finished at 4:38 and the sun was already down, another 5 weeks of losing about a minute of daylight per day before the days start getting longer again. Some snow in the forecast for Thursday.

You keep pounding out the miles but also smart enough to make sure it is not too much too soon. This is a tough time of the year. Out here in California right now we also have to deal with air quality because of the fires. Go team! 11/12 9:15 pm
