This routine works. Getting out three times! Most of what I do is easy but I am covering the miles. Kind of like LSD training. Have not done much of that until now. Yes we also have two cats. Like a little zoo at our place. This is Shelley. She is 17 and is still in good shape.
8/27/20 4.30 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)

8/24/20 3.80 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)

8/21/20 6.70 Miles Los Altos (US)
Stated off the day with a faster 24:03 on our 2.3 mile Hilltop course. There was less smoke right here but by night it came back. These fires have already consumed over 600,000 acres. Burning many places where I have run before. So sad.
8/20/20 4.70 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)

Daisy and I took the first mile very easy like 13:08 and finished with a 7:49 mile five. Once I loose seven pounds I think I can race a 10k on a flat course at under 7:55/mile pace. But I need to do some speed work first. Good to see all the posting. Thanks! Didn’t put in the mask until I got to the Stanford campus.

That is the Coupa Cafe in the photo where I end up. Always get a bag of chips, coffee and a bottle of water. And of course I get water for Daisy and I carry treats for her. She has gained a couple of pounds and have been running better than ever.

Our best run in awhile. Finished at Coupa Cafe on the Campus. Catherine is picking us up and we are going to have a picnic in a nearby park.

Got out three times again today. These are all short ones and only about half is running. But I do hit it pretty hard for a mile of this. I seem to be stronger but I won’t know until I run without Daisy or in a race whenever that might be.
5/7/20 1.86 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Will be going out a couple more times today but I wanted to share this photo. The light was just perfect this morning. This is one of several of our iris we have growing in our garden.
5/4/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Got out three times again today. Glad to get it n the miles, the weather is nice, I like taking Daisy but just don’t like not being able to sit down at a restaurant, watching a movie on the big screen or taking off on an airplane. And the uncertainty of what the new “normal” is going to be is unsettling. Good thing I am a runner..
5/3/20 1.50 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got in another 1.5 miles before dark. Once we got back Catherine had dinner made. Daisy got some wet food she loves.
5/3/20 6.60 Miles 1:14:21 11:16 Stanford (US)
Daisy and I did this in two parts. 4.5 miles for the first part and averaged 9:47 for that part even with a 12:08 easy first mile. The second 2.1 mile part was very easy. Beautiful day to be out!
5/2/20 1.50 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got in another 1.5 with Daisy before dark. Then spent the rest of the evening at home. No surprise there, right? The flowers are blooming and Catherine put this together for us.
4/30/20 4.50 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Got out three times again. A lot of my miles are short intervals but I think it is really helping. Should be able to run sub 49 for 10k I think. Will have to wait a couple more months to test it I think.
5/1/20 3.50 Miles Los Altos and Mountain View (US)
Got out three times but just got in 3.5 miles today. Catherine always cooks a nice dinner for us.
5/2/20 6.60 Miles 1:04:43 9:49 Stanford (US)
Daisy and I ran over to Stanford. First mile was slow (12:12) including a pit stop and then we picked it up. The grass and weeds really need to be attended too at Stanford. I guess they have been off for the last six weeks. But even with this, Stanford is such an amazing campus.
4/28/20 4.30 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Got out three times again today. Weather here is nice. Pass by a lot of cool looking spots.
4/27/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got out three times. A lot of these miles are walking with Daisy but then we also are running at sub 8 pace for parts of it too.
4/29/20 5.01 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Got out three times. Ran a little longer at lunch today. Passed by the parking lots at the Google headquarters. Almost totally empty when normally every space is taken. Wonder if everyone will return?
4/26/20 3.60 Miles Los Altos (US)
Daisy and I got in another 3.6 between yesterday and today. Beautiful weekend, Daisy is tired.
4/26/20 6.60 Miles 59:47 9:04 Stanford (US)
Ran over to Stanford again. Four minutes faster today than yesterday. I sure need a hair cut. Beautiful day. Perfect running weather. Ready for a race. Only wear the mask in places like this not running. But I always stay away from people. You too?
4/22/20 4.10 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got out three times. Twice with Daisy and then at lunch. We have to stop the spread of this virus. Do your part! I always wear a mask when out in public other than when I am running. While running I make sure I stay away from others. You never know who has it.
4/23/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got out three times again. I am such a habit person. Always has been.
4/24/20 4.00 Miles Palo Alto and Mt View (US)
Got out three times today. Twice with Daisy and 1.5 miles at lunch. I am on a routine but I would be mixing this up if we were not dealing with stopping this virus. I don’t even like to call it by name! Photo of me before going out. I don’t wear our mask during my run. Only when out in public otherwise. Better to be safe than sorry. If a masks helps me from not getting this virus I am so grateful.
4/25/20 6.60 Miles 1:04:11 9:44 Stanford, Ca (US)
Daisy and I ran over to Stanford. It was almost hot today (like 80 or something) and she was not used to the heat. She was dragging a bit today. I could not find water along the way but got her a cup once here at a Coupa cafe. She was thirsty as was I. We walked another half mile and will had that to our evening outing. Weird seeing Stanford with over grown grass the the walkways not cleaned. But in any case it is a beautiful campus and I love running over here. So great to have Catherine pick is up. Daisy is just not ready to go 14 miles yet.
4/20/20 3.00 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Got out just twice today. Both times with Daisy. Busy with shipping out and coordinating our Mindful Face Mask program. Glad we are getting out a lot of masks. Helps protect people and it gets our people back to work. Win win situation. Photo of our neighbors who got a couple of sets. JR (the husband) has also started back running.
4/19/20 8.00 Miles Stanford (US)
Daisy and I mostly ran over to Stanford (couple of pit stopped). She did one mile under 8. Most of the other miles were slower. We also did one of the seven miles as intervals. We walked a mile later in the day. Beautiful day to be out and yes we followed all the social distancing guidelines. We all have to do our part to get this thing stopped. We need to be able to race again. Afterwards I put on one of our Mindful Face Masks.
4/21/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos and Mountain View (US)
Tough times for most everyone. And it is as tough as ever to focus. But one thing is solid. Getting in my daily miles. Not fast miles and miles. Photo of my wife’s herb garden. Catherine is such a great cook. Good thing I run otherwise I would weigh a lot more than I do now. Fresh herbs add so much taste!
4/18/20 4.50 Miles 42:27 9:26 Los Altos, Ca (US)
Ran with my running partner, Daisy. Time includes two pit stops. Been really busy coordinating making and getting out our Mindful Face Masks. Just over 2000 masks ordered the first ten days. I wear our face mask when I am in public but not during my run.
4/17/20 2.60 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Got out twice both times with Daisy. Getting out into the fresh air daily (something I have been doing for years) just makes my day more complete.
4/16/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Ditto. I am such a habit person, got out three times again. Twice with Daisy and then at lunch.
4/15/20 4.30 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Longer run/walk this morning with Daisy. So total for the day was better. Hope everyone is safe?
4/14/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Got out three times again. Good habit to have.
4/13/20 4.03 Miles Los Altos and Mt View, California (US)
Got out three times today. Seems like this is becoming a habit. A good habit at a very weird time in history. Waiting in line to get into a grocery store.
4/12/20 9.02 Miles Mountain View, Ca (US)
Ran and walked three times today. My first run was four miles. During this run after two slow miles Daisy clocked her second fastest mile (7:50) even after a slow first quarter. Then she followed up with a decent 8:39. The rest of the miles were easy with a few strides on the last mile. Sure wished there was a race to see where I am at fitness wise. We will have races again one of these days. Weird time right now.
4/11/20 2.50 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got in another 2.5 miles easy. Keeping my mileage over 30 miles starting first week of March. Can’t wait until we have races again to test my fitness.
4/10/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos (US)
Did my standard workout. Twice with Daisy and once at lunch. About one mile of this was pushing it (sub 8 minute pace) for 150 yards or so intervals. Then a nice dinner at Catherine’s kitchen. Good thing I run with all this gourmet food Catherine has been making. Add red wine and Netflix and it’s a nice evening.
4/11/20 5.53 Miles 60:37 10:58 Stanford, Ca (US)
Ran and walked over to Stanford. We pushed two of the miles even through I was wearing sweats. We ran 8:17 and 8:37. Off her best but I think the 8:17 might be her second fastest mile. Rest of the miles were easy.
4/8/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got out the three times. Twice with Daisy and once at lunch. Take out of course since we are shelter in place. Sure glad I have Daisy to run with.
4/7/20 4.50 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
This is sounding like a broken record. Got out three times. Twice with Daisy and at lunch. But Daisy really kicks my butt. If I run full out I can barely keep up with her.
4/6/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos (US)
Ran three times again. Twice with Daisy and then at lunch.
4/9/20 3.50 Miles Los Altos and Mt View, Ca (US)
Got out three times today. Twice with Daisy and then at lunch. Been busy the last few days working on our Mindful Face Mask to help stop the spread of this virus. We need races and to run with others.
4/5/20 3.00 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Got out twice. Lots of rain. We need it but added a challenge to get in more miles.
4/4/20 3.15 Miles Palo Alto snd Lo Palo Alto and Los Altos (US)
After doing the 4.2 miles we walked/ran 1.72 ending up at our factory. Then later we walked mostly from home to finish off the day. Sure wish there were races around. I am ready for one!
4/4/20 4.21 Miles 39:17 9:20 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Daisy and I ran 4.21 miles after an easy first mile. I wanted to list this separate because this is Daisy’s fastest 4 miles and ran her fast one mile and two mile. Here are her splits: 11:59 (including one pit stop), 9:21, 8:27 and her final split 7:39. She was dragging the last quarter mile and I decided that we needed to do the rest of our workout slower. Well done Daisy.
4/3/20 6.50 Miles Los Altos (US)
Went out for 1.5 miles with Daisy, then at lunch did 4 miles and ended the day with 1 mile with Daisy. Learned today that my fav hamburger place after 75 years Clarke’s has closed. The Cornavirus pushed them over the edge. Sad. Today was dedicated to them.
4/2/20 4.00 Miles Los Altos and Mt View (US)
Got out three times again. Twice with Daisy and 1.5 miles at lunch. Daisy and I are both getting in better shape.
4/1/20 4.20 Miles Los Altos and Palo Alto (US)

Ran over to Stanford again. Daisy ran her fastest mile today. She ran 8:23. We averaged 9:35 for five miles even with three pit stops for her and a couple of recovery walks for her. Then we did two more easy miles. Will get again for another mile or so before dark.
3/28/20 8.20 Miles Los Altos (US)
Ran over to Stanford and then an easy 1.2 with Daisy. Crazy times.
3/27/20 6.50 Miles Los Altos (US)
Got out twice with Daisy and the ran/walked four mikes mid day. And of course I kept my distance from the few people I saw outside. The world is going to win this Cornavirus war.
3/23/20 4.40 Miles Los Altos and Palo Alto (US)
I am hoping our Shelter In Place is helping get a handle of the Cornavirus. Got out three times today. Twice with Daisy and then at lunch.

Been doing the same things this week. Getting out three times. Twice with Daisy and then at lunch.
3/25/20 4.16 Miles Los Altos and Palo Alto (US)

3/26/20 4.02 Miles 59:41 14:51 Los Altos and Palo Alto (US)
Got out three times. Twice with Daisy and once at lunch. Sounds like a broken record. Staying away from people and hoping we can get this virus in control.
3/22/20 8.00 Miles Stanford, Ca (US)
Daisy did her longest run today. We ran four miles at 9:49 pace including stopping for three bathroom stops and walking the first quarter mile for warm up. Then we walked and ran another three miles. Plus last night we got in another mile. All staying at least six feet away from others. We have to keep thinking positive. We ran over to Stanford. Ghost town here.
3/21/20 4.92 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Got out with Daisy. We ran three miles, her longest run to date. Then we walked and ran 1.9 miles. She was tired at the end. Really enjoyed sharing this with her as we continue our lock down here.

Got out three times. Twice with Daisy and then ran over to a grocery store to pick up lunch. We are locked down in California.
3/20/20 7.00 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Three outings during the lock down here. So weird to hardly see any people or cars out. I made sure I did not get within six feet of anyone. Rest of the day and night I spent at home locked down. Hopefully this will help!
3/18/20 3.80 Miles Los Altos and Mountain View (US)
Out three times. Twice with Daisy and then at lunch. As we are in Shelter at Place day 2 we are limited in what we can do. But getting in runs is okay. Photo at grocery store for lunch since all restaurants are closed.
3/17/20 3.50 Miles Los Altos and Mountain View (US)
Got out three times again today. Most everything is closed. Weird to be in the middle of this.
3/16/20 3.50 Miles Los Altos and Mountain View (US)
Got out three times. Twice with Daisy and once at lunch. We are Shelter In Place. Working from home mostly. Did hear that running outside is okay as long as we stay six feet away from other people and we run solo. We need to get a handle on this virus.

3/8/20 2.10 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Took Daisy out a couple of times. She was pulling me up the hill the last quarter mile. She is a good dog.
3/8/20 15.00 K 1:17:15 8:18 Brisbane, California (US)
Been logging in too many walking miles. They help to keep me injured free and good for general conditioning but they don’t help to race at the pace I want and can do. Fun day today at our Double 15k.
3/7/20 8.20 Miles Los Altos and Brisbane (US)
Three sessions. 2.3 miles with Daisy, then ran over to Clarke’s for a hamburger (2.8) and then walked 3.1 measuring our course for our race tomorrow. Picture of some of our race crew.
3/3/20 1.74 Miles 22:08 12:44 Palo Alto, Ca (US)

3/2/20 2.90 Miles La Piedad, Mx (MX)
Got in an easy 1.1 miles this morning before leaving for the airport home. Walked 1.8 miles last night with our dog Daisy. We are bringing her to California. Being with her five days per month just is not enough time.
3/1/20 6.70 Miles La Piedad, Mx (MX)
Ran 4.5 miles at just under 10 pace then did 2.1 miles of walking and running finally meeting Catherine for breakfast down at the Plaza. Found a walking bridge to cross the river. Never noticed it before.

2/26/20 1.31 Miles 11:51 9:03 Los Altos, Ca (US)
Short run before heading to the airport. Going down to our My Best Runs office and UjENA factory until Monday. Have to get down there monthly as I have mentioned before.
2/25/20 1.10 Miles Mountain View, Ca (US)
It is just too easy to put other things first. I was going to run a few miles because the weather here was beautiful. So I started out talking to someone on the phone and the next thing I know 12 minutes had passed, so I just did a mile over a mile and it was mostly walking.
2/24/20 2.10 Miles 27:25 13:04 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Ran out to the lake for lunch. Met Catherine.
2/23/20 4.02 Miles 50:31 12:34 Los Altos, Ca (US)

2/22/20 6.11 Miles 55:50 9:09 Stanford, Ca (US)
Very slow first mile and then I picked it up for three miles finishing off with a couple of miles of 176 yard intervals.
2/21/20 4.20 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)

2/19/20 2.60 Miles 31:00 11:56 Mountain View and Los Altos (US)

2/18/20 1.00 Miles Mountain View, Ca (US)
Just a mile. Needing to get in a real run tomorrow. This is the plan. This is what our shirt is going to look like for our Golden Gate Double 8k August 2.
2/17/20 1.64 Miles 28:13 17:13 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Easy out to the lake. It was packed at our normal place so we ate at the club house. That was packed too. Guess a lot of people don’t work on Presidents Day.
2/16/20 5.02 Miles 1:19:06 15:46 Palo Alto, Ca (US)
Easy day. Excited for one of our founding members of our UjENA Fit Club Training Camp in Thika Kenya. We just officially opened our camp Jan 19, 2020 and already Joel this morning won the 13th edition of this half in Italy and ran the fastest time in Italy over the last 365 days. His time 1:00:40 a PR by 39 seconds. Well done Joel.
2/15/20 2.00 Miles Stanford, Ca (US)
Walked two miles getting over to Stanford. Nice day for this time of the year. Feels like 60 degrees. Perfect for running.
2/15/20 5.51 Miles 50:59 9:16 Stanford, Ca (US)
Ran over to Stanford. Did intervals the last 1.5 miles. Walked another two miles but will put that on a separate post. Past by this cool gate. Had a weird pain the last interval and backed off a bit.
2/14/20 3.61 Miles 39:25 10:56 Los Altos, Ca (US)

Just an easy one. Legs are tired for some reason.
2/13/20 1.30 Miles 23:53 18:23 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Easy day. Lots going on. Need a good run soon.
2/10/20 2.02 Miles 27:18 13:31 Palo Alto, Ca (US)
Easy day. My hamstring is a little tight and I am going to take it easy a couple of days.
2/9/20 2.50 Miles Los Gatos and Stanford (US)
Since every mile counts. On Saturday before the race I ran one mile at just under 9 minutes. Then yesterday I walked 1.5 miles between intervals and at the end of my workout. I do think walking at least at my age is an important element to staying injury free. Knock on wood. Photo of me, Eliot and Admit before the start of 10k on Saturday.
2/4/20 2.10 Miles 22:13 10:35 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Easy run over to the lake at Shoreline.
2/5/20 2.51 Miles Mountain View, Ca (US)
Easy day. Sometimes it is good to just have an easy day.
2/9/20 5.50 Miles 52:13 9:30 Stanford, Ca (US)
Legs were a little tired from the race Saturday and wow the wind was terrible. So I ran my fav course over to Stanford.
2/8/20 6.20 Miles 49:20 7:58 Campbell, Ca (US)
Ten minutes before the start of the 43rd annual Campbell Valentine Fun Run the timer Hank Lawson told me the course record for 70 plus was 49:45. I had only decided to run this last night but I always like challenges. I ran 49:20. Not an easy course either with hills and more than a mile of gravel. These days I don’t run well on gravel. At least I got the record. A friend Eliot Daniels (age 15) won clicking 34:20.
2/7/20 4.18 Miles Los Altos, Ca (US)
Did my usual Friday run/walk to downtown Los Altos for lunch and then back home.

1/22/20 1.40 Miles Thika, Kenya (KE)
Our team did 10x600 at 65 per 400 pace. I couldn’t do one that speed. So I just ran 1.4 miles with Willie afterwards.
1/21/20 5.01 Miles 45:51 9:10 Takia, Kenya (KE)
Ran with our team today. Very inspiring as they let me lead our group.
1/23/20 2.11 Miles 21:09 10:02 Zurich (CH)

Looks like James is going to be our winner. He has been running like 128 miles per week. Very impressive. So get your last miles logged tomorrow. Then Wednesday first thing we will start RTW7. Ten weeks and let’s see if we can go beyond what we did for RTW6. What do you think?

Legs are still only 80%. I am thinking because I did not do any longer runs in training (like over 7) for the half, it is taking an extra day or two for recovery. Ran out to the lake. Windy...
7/31/19 1.82 Miles 22:17 12:15 Palo Alto, Cal (US)
Ran over to Bill’s and met Catherine for lunch. My legs are still dead from Sunday. Photo of recovery zone on Sunday.

The Vitality London 10000 was so much fun. I wanted to place in top three 70 plus and I made my goal. Got stuck in the bathroom line before the start and started at the back of wave two. Passed a lot of people. What a fabulous course. My first 5k split was 24:58 and I finished in 49:22. Wanted to run a little faster but I will take this. It was nice to meet Bob Anderson from England and meet a new friend Barry. Mo Farah was the overall winner. I would recommend this race. Put it on your bucket list.

5/5/19 6.30 Miles 55:26 8:48 Stanford, California (US)
First good workout since Thursday. I have decided on a goal for the Vitality 10000 London on May 27. Sub 48 minutes (7:43 pace) which would have been 4th 70 plus last year. Fantasy would be 45:50 which would have been third 70 plus last year. Today workout was good. Warm up mile and I picked up the miles through 5 miles. Then I ran a half mile after a minute break followed by eight 176 yards (one tenth of mile) ending up at Coupa at Stanford. Catherine made cookies at home. Fantasy can happen if weather is good, solid training, fresh legs and I have an on day!
5/4/19 6.70 Miles 1:26:20 12:54 Stanford, Ca (US)

Double training. Ran 2.1 mile over to the cafe at Shoreline lake. Had a light lunch, did some emails and then ran four miles back to the office. Ran by one of two new Google headquarter buildings just a half mile apart. They are spending hundreds of millions on these one-of-a-kind buildings. They make so much money and I guess if you have it why not spend it?
4/29/19 1.41 Miles 19:30 13:50 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)

Easy over to the lake to meet Catherine for lunch. Beautiful day. Passed by the Google sports field. Wonder why they didn’t also put in a track?
4/22/19 2.10 Miles 25:16 12:02 Los Altos, California (US)
Easy two miles. Legs are dead today which is understandable.
4/21/19 7.13 Miles 1:03:08 8:52 Stanford, California (US)
Two Step-ups with about a ten minute walking break (not counted) in between. First one was four miles starting off very slow and ending up with a 7:08 mile. After a short break did 3.1 miles starting off slow and ending up with a 8:17 mile. Happy Easter everyone.
4/20/19 13.11 Miles 2:03:22 9:25 Woodside, California (US)
Ran my half marathon course from the house (Los Altos) to Buck’s in Woodside. This course has everything. Couple of slow miles (11:28)but also mile nine was 7:37, mile ten 7:27 and mile 13 was 8:22. I think my step-ups and interval work is helping.
4/19/19 4.10 Miles 38:22 9:22 Los Altos, California (US)
Did a double workout. Ran two miles easy to lunch in downtime. Then 2.1 miles back. 11:05 then 8:56, hour lunch break, easy first mile 9:48 and then 7:48 followed by .1 strides and half mile walk.
4/18/19 1.90 Miles Palo Alto, Cal (US)
Easy lunch walk/run. Legs were dead.
4/18/19 4.10 Miles 36:05 8:49 Los Altos, California (US)
I like this workout. I did it yesterday but today much faster. Four mile step up. Each mile has to be faster than the previous one. Today I started with 10:14, then 8:58, 8:19 and finished off with 7:44. I end it with a one tenth stride and then half mile walk (which I don’t count as mileage but is very important for the workout). My legs are tired from the intervals Monday and Tuesday and the step-up from yesterday. On fresh legs I will run faster. Give this a try. I also do six mile step-ups too.

4/15/19 1.80 Miles 27:46 15:26 Mountain View, California (US)
Wanted to take an easy day. My big toe is still healing and causing some issues. Can't believe this is taking so long to get back to "normal." Boston was an exciting race to follow today.

4/9/19 2.41 Miles 27:54 11:35 Los Altos, Ca (US)
I have been eating Sweet Peppers for the last year or so for a snack. Seem really healthy. Several different brands. Don’t think that really matters as a consumer.

Warm up and cool down (at Harris Ranch on the road trip home). Ran with Bill Sumner and Lloyd Hansen (who both beat me) in the warm up. Good to see them first thing. Maybe I should get a pair of these shoes? Worth 4% faster?
4/7/19 3.13 Miles 23:23 7:29 Carlsbad, Ca (US)
Perfect day for running. I have the base but I really needed more speed work. But I ran a minute faster than last year. Really like seeing everyone.
4/6/19 1.27 Miles Carlsbad, California (US)
Did some strides. This morning I woke up with a dull ache in my hip. We were in the car eight hours yesterday and I have reduced my miles the last week. Hope it is not going to get inthe way of a good race tomorrow. It is what it is.
4/6/19 3.00 Miles Carlsbad, California (US)
First run in Carlsbad this morning. Pushed a half of mile along the beach at about 7:10/mile pace. I should have done more speed work. Oh well too late now. No 26 Carlsbad 5000.

4/2/19 4.11 Miles 38:14 9:19 Mountain View, California (US)
Third run of the day. I could hardly put one foot in front of the other on my first two miles this morning. I think I was low on fuel. The headwind slowed me on this one but it felt good. Go Team 365.
4/2/19 4.03 Miles 57:26 14:16 Mountain View,Ca (US)

4/1/19 1.35 Miles 24:39 18:16 Mountain View, California (US)
With an important 5k race coming up on Sunday (Carlsbad 5000) I decided to take a very easy day. I want to have fresh legs and after doing 268 miles in 31 days I want to see what my legs will feel like in the morning after doing very little. So we are on RTW Challenge 365. We need to get everyone logging miles. No entry fee. I wonder how many miles we can get in by July 3? We are one team on this one. Go team!
3/31/19 6.02 Miles 1:10:45 11:46 Stanford, Ca (US)

3/30/19 2.00 Miles 18:59 9:30 Los Altos California (US)
This was my third run of the day and my last run for RTW4 Challenge. I hit 262 miles which is an average of 61 miles per week. Can’t remember ever running this many miles in one month before ever. I have always been a low mileage guy. I feel stronger because of it. Thanks team for motivating me. I am going to do a recap once we finish in four hours 20 minutes. I am so proud of our team and congrats to each and every one of you. Thanks to my wife Catherine for supporting me along the way and to my two kids Michael and Lisa for getting in lots of miles too. You guys ROCK🏃🏃🏃👍
3/30/19 8.03 Miles 1:13:03 9:06 Palo Alto,Ca (US)
This might be my last run for RTW4 Challenge. I can’t seem to stop pushing out my goal. At first it was 240, then 250 and a few days ago I thought 260 sounded good. It has been a great month running with all of our team. You guys are so inspiring. Congrats to all of you many times over. Go team! We Run The World.
3/29/19 3.70 Miles 48:34 13:08 Los Altos, Ca (US)

3/27/19 2.72 Miles 25:03 9:13 Mountain View, California (US)

Walked .85 to lunch and 1.57 home. Leaving for California in the morning. Not going to be a big running day since will be flying. Go team! For our 100,000 mile challenge we have less than a 1000 miles to go. Five more days for RTW4. These are two houses I saw along my route at lunch.
3/25/19 5.10 Miles 57:00 11:11 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)

3/24/19 6.20 Miles 53:28 8:38 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
This was my 4th race in La Piedad o we the last two years. I could really tell I had missed several days of serious training because of my big toe. I just could never shift into a racing gear. You add the hills plus running at 5,300 feet, having to deal with this big toe and it makes sense I was well over 50 minutes. But I still think I was first sixty plus. Lots of fun. Manuel, Diana, Sandy and myself ran from MBR. Go team!
3/23/19 2.02 Miles 45:06 22:20 La Piedad, mexico (MX)
Walked over to the Plaza. Have decided to run the 10k in the morning. Hoping that my big toe issue is not going to be too painful. Roy is 72 and even through he diesn’t run he walks a lot. We have known each other for two years now. He is a shoe shine guy. Best I have ever had. Today we just talked for 25 minutes. Good guy. Go team!
3/23/19 4.50 Miles 57:55 12:53 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
Actually ran most of this, but slow. My big toe is better. About 90%. Finally! Great running weather. Go team!
3/22/19 6.00 Miles (MX)
This morning I did 2.5, then at lunch I did 1.5 and then I walked 2 miles home. My big toe just is not good. Really want to do a 10k race Sunday here. Maybe 5k is a better idea. The fruit and vegetables down here are great! Go team!
3/21/19 4.30 Miles La Piedad, mexico (MX)
Down here in Mexico at our office. Ran 2.3 miles before work, walked a mile at lunch and another 1.5 mile to dinner. Go team!
3/20/19 2.10 Miles 22:05 10:31 Los Altos, California (US)
Got in a short run before leaving for the airport. Going down to our Ujena/MBR office in Mexico. Planning on running a race there Sunday. Toes are much better today. Our bodies are amazing...I am about 70% today up from 35% from yesterday. Rain in the air. Go team!
3/19/19 6.03 Miles 1:51:37 18:31 Los Altos and Palo Alto (US)
This is what I am dealing with and it had nothing to do with running. I tripped Sunday night hurting two toes. Nothing seems broken, thank god. Today I did two sessions mostly walking because of these toes. Photo: avocado toast for lunch. Go RTW4 teams. My concern with these toes is I need to get in speed work before racing Carlsbad 5000 in just over two weeks. I will have to figure it out. I certainly want to take advantage of the 181 miles I have logged since we started RTW4 March 1.
3/18/19 3.75 Miles 1:19:51 21:18 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Easy to lake and back after a light lunch. Need to get my big toe 100% so I can start doing some speed work. It is getting better. Messed up the nail... Beatiful day, like 76 degrees. Smaller lake about quarter mile from bigger lake. go team!
3/18/19 1.50 Miles 21:49 14:33 Los Altos (US)
Easy run before heading over to the office. Walked Quinn Hill. It is steeper than it looks. Go team!
3/17/19 1.89 Miles 48:48 25:50 Stanford (US)
After eating a bag of pop chips, cup of coffee and a bottle of water I walked around the campus. There are so many things to photograph here. Here are a couple of my shots. Go team!
3/17/19 6.33 Miles 1:20:48 12:46 Stanford, California (US)
Ran my fav course...house to Stanford. Messed up my toe last night soi walked the first mile (19:26) and then I was able to run slow. Go team!
3/16/19 5.41 Miles 49:29 9:09 Los Altos, California (US)

3/14/19 2.40 Miles 30:57 12:54 Mountain View, California (US)
Second run of the day. Beautiful out. Ran over to the lake to meet Catherine for lunch. Go team!
3/14/19 8.10 Miles 1:17:54 9:38 Los Altos, California (US)
It has been awhile since I ran through Rancho San Antonio. But since I decided to go for 140 miles in 14 days I thought I would ran that course today. The farm there is always nice to run fast. Go team!
3/13/19 3.23 Miles 48:06 14:54 Palo Alto, California (US)
Easy run/walk to lunch at Bill’s and then did another easy 1.21 miles. My legs are trashed. Photos are just some sights along the way. Go team!

3/11/19 3.91 Miles 1:04:39 16:33 Los Altis, CA (US)
Easy day but I still wanted to get in 7 miles in total. I pass this tree on my favorite course all the time and I thought I would share it. Go team!
3/11/19 3.11 Miles 33:09 10:40 Los Altos, Ca (US)
What a difference a day makes. There is not a cloud in the sky today and it is like 50 degrees. While yesterday it was cloudy with rain on and off. But we handled it yesterday. Runners do that. Go team.
3/10/19 8.00 K 39:48 8:01 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran our fifth annual Palo Alto Double 8k. It rained for awhile and then it did clear up. We had over 450 runners sign up, our biggest turn out at this location. Always a fun group of people. Thanks to our staff and the volunteers. Go team!

Three more runs. Marking the course for tomorrow 1.75 walking/running plus two runs afterwards 2.12 miles in 20:54 and 1.1 miles just now in Los Altos 12:54. This gives me 77 miles for the last 7 days. A lifetime best. Photo of James, Cameron, Waitman and myself out on the 10k course. Turn around is almost at the boathouse at Shoreline. Go team.

3/8/19 7.51 Miles 1:13:33 9:48 Los Altos, California (US)
It was a little windy and cool but nothing like so many other places in the US. I was only going to do four miles but since I have done at least 7 every morning of RTW4 I just went for it. Ran crazy the first half (it was hilly) and pushed the second half. So great to see so many of our team posting photos. Go team!
3/7/19 2.02 Miles 21:33 10:41 Mountain View, California (US)
I had to go out one more time. It was dark and I had already run twice today but by running another two miles this brought me to 72.5 miles for 7 days. One week like 50 plus years ago I ran 76 miles. So this is the second most miles in a week ever. It took me 11 hours 41 minutes 41 seconds. That is 9:38/mile pace. I know this is not a lot of miles for so many of my running friends but I have always been a low mileage sort of guy. I am pumped. I am glad to be able to contribute these miles to our effort. Go team. Here are the Garmin stats.
3/7/19 3.17 Miles 30:21 9:35 Mountain View, California (US)
This brings me over 70 for the first seven days. I wonder if I should go out a third time to add a few more miles? Most likely I won’t be at this point again. Go team! Met Catherine for lunch at the lake.
3/7/19 7.20 Miles 1:08:08 9:28 Los Altos, California (US)
Getting close to my goal of reaching 70 miles for the first week. I have only hit 70 plus in 7 days three times in my life. It is only fitting being I am part of our 70 plus team. Go team.
3/6/19 2.14 Miles 23:16 10:53 Palo Alto, California (US)
Second run today. My lunch run. Met Catherine at Bill’s in Palo Alto. Get all your miles (k’s) logged. Go team. Getting things ready for our Palo Alto 10k, 5k and Double 8k on Sunday. Forescast says 55 degrees and no rain. That works just fine.
3/6/19 7.14 Miles 1:09:11 9:42 Lis Altos, California (US)
No rain when I went out back there is lots of water around. Felt tired today but I want to go for 70 miles the first seven days. I have not run 70 miles in a week for years. Go team.
3/5/19 2.69 Miles 36:04 13:25 Mountain View, California (US)
No matter how far I run before I get to the office, I run or walk a mile or more at lunch. And today I wanted to get up to 50. It stopped raining but it’s cloudy. This loop past Google that ends up at Erik’s has a lot to offer. Go team! Tacked on .36 after lunch 3:54 time added.
3/5/19 9.17 Miles 1:20:44 8:49 Los Altos, California (US)
It was wet the whole run but over the last four miles it started raining and that lasted until the end. Pushed a couple of the miles. Feeling stronger. Go team!
3/4/19 2.20 Miles 25:09 11:26 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Very easy, the way my body wanted me to do these couple of miles. Only for the team. I would like to reach 40 miles these first four days. Go teams! Go 70 plus!
3/4/19 10.40 Miles 1:37:49 9:25 Los Altos, Califirnia (US)
It was one of those runs. I was only going to walk a recovery mile. Started running after a half mile, then was going to run four, then seven and ended up with 10.4. At the end saw my marathoner neighbor Leonardo and his wife Carmen. Had to take a photo in front of their orange tree. Then I left with a bag of their delicious oranges. Go team.
3/3/19 7.54 Miles 1:09:12 9:11 Palo Alro, California (US)
Ran our Palo Alro 10k course plus added some more at the end. I am going to run our Double 8k next Sunday. Wanted to make sure there was not going to be any water issues out on the course. It’s good. Some at the start but we can deal with that. Some views along the way. Go team!
3/2/19 7.20 Miles 1:07:47 9:25 Stanford, California (US)
Before leaving the house I thought it was going to be a walking recovery day. But after walking a half mile I started running and just kept going. Walking the first half mile ruined my pace however. Hope to get back out again for the team. It was raining some of the way and there is a lot of water around but now the sun is out and it is like 58 degrees. Go team!
3/1/19 4.52 Miles 44:26 9:50 Los Altos, California (US)
I am charged up. Did Double run training. 2.2 miles over to lunch. After a light lunch did 2.32 miles. I was talking to my 76 year old neighbor this morning. I knew he ran NY Marathon several times but I did not know he has run all six of the majors. His house is the one behind me. Go team!
3/1/19 7.12 Miles 1:07:54 9:33 Los Altos, California (US)

This is Daisy’s longest run. We did this non-stop and even through I walked most of it, Daisy was trotting because of her short legs. We circled seven full size soccer fields four times in a park just a couple miles from the house.
2/24/19 5.50 Miles 52:35 9:34 Santana, Mexico (MX)
Changed the course a little and ran through another little town and then hit some single track. Had to take it easy on a few parts. Then ended up at this store selling all these delicious looking fruits and vegables over in Santana. I just got a big bottle of water. It was warm out but not hot.

Longest run in a long time. Actually I was going to run 13 but made one wrong turn that took me to 13.8. Splits were all over the place since I had to walk some of the really sloppy parts and some of the tough hills. Same course I ran two weeks ago.

Just an easy walk/run. Not feeling 100% from the traveling so I just took it easy.
2/10/19 6.20 Miles 55:39 8:59 New York City (US)
Last run in Central Park before heading home. Hundreds of people out training in the 28 degree weather. At least there was very little wind. Millrose Games yesterday was so exciting.

2/8/19 6.20 Miles 1:11:23 11:31 New York City, New York (US)
Ran with Larry Allen in Central Park this morning. Really a nice morning to run. Larry’s tour through the park filled in a lot of the blanks. Started from the Fred LeBow stature.
2/7/19 3.10 Miles 29:04 9:23 New York City (US)
Here in NY City. First run in Central Park. Nice running weather. I just love running in the Park. We are meeting Larry Allen for dinner.

Busy day finishing up our next Run The World 4 starting March 1. Going to be fun. It snowed on the hills around here last night. First time since 2011. You can just see it with this photo.
2/4/19 1.60 Miles 17:10 10:44 Mountain View, California (US)
Easy run over to the lake. Rained much of the way. Messed up the battery on my phone on yesterday’s run. It is amazing how attached we are attached to our phone. Got behind on many things because of it. I think the phone is okay now but was having charging issues. Photo from yesterday’s run.
2/3/19 13.50 Miles 2:20:22 10:24 Woodside (US)
I wanted to meet Catherine for lunch at Bucks in Woodside. By car it is about 14 miles from the house mostly on freeways. So I went to google maps and it found a way by foot. 13.5 miles. Wow, what an adventure. I ran roads, single track trails, bike paths, I crossed streams, ran lots of tough hills and it rained on me most of the way. But I did it and loved it. Longest run in a long time.
2/2/19 6.22 Miles 47:11 7:36 Stanford, Calif (US)
First mile was a warm up (10:12) then pushed it to 3.7 miles. The rest was 150 to 250 yard intervals only timing the running segments. Walked another mile but did not count that. Stanford campus is so beautiful.
2/1/19 4.10 Miles 44:27 10:51 Los Altos, California (US)

1/29/19 3.70 Miles 36:38 9:55 Mountain View, California (US)
Ran over to the lake, eat a light lunch and ran back to the office. Suppose to start raining tomorrow but today was perfect running condictions. Go team!
1/28/19 1.35 Miles 14:50 11:00 Mountain View, Ca (US)
Easy run from the office over to Erik’s for lunch. I forgot to start my watch for the first half mile but I had a pretty good idea what pace I was running. Photo is of our dog, Daisy, in La Piedad. A friend takes care of her when we are not there. But she is always glad to see us and to go walking and running with us.
1/27/19 5.10 Miles 49:50 9:47 La Piedad (MX)
Last run in La Piedad before leaving for the airport. I like this little loop and was glad our plane was an hour later this time giving me enough time to do this course again. Perfect running weather. Love this little town but always love going back home too. Our next Challenge will start March 1st with some changes I think you will like. Final details are being worked out. In the meantime keep running and logging. Go team!
1/26/19 2.80 Miles La Piedad (MX)

1/26/19 4.60 Miles 45:55 9:59 La Piedad (MX)

1/20/19 6.02 Miles 51:33 8:34 Mountain View, California (US)
Did the same workout as yesterday but today I ran slower. First warm up mile was 11:21. Picked it up and then ran mile four in 7:41. Then ran intervals for two miles 7:38/mile and 7:15/mile. Good weekend. Going to take it easy next couple of days.
1/19/19 1.10 Miles 9:43 8:50 Stanford, California (US)
After finishing six miles I had about 15 minutes before meeting up with Swetha from our team to talk about RTW Challenge 4. So I ran an easy mile. Glad I did this. My body needed this.
1/19/19 6.02 Miles 46:36 7:45 Stanford, California (US)
I broke up this workout. Started off with a 9:55 first warm up mile. Then ran a 8:21 mile followed by a 7:34 and 7:31. I was toast at the end. Then I did 20 1/10th of a mile at 6:32/mile pace. I keep moving the whole time. Walked at least an additional mile between the intervals. Met up with Swetha from our team at Coupa afterwards.
1/18/19 3.41 Miles 29:53 8:46 Los Altos, California (US)
Double training run. Ran over to downtown Los Altos. Easy first mile as warm up (10:01). Then one more mile under 9. Had a light lunch and ran back pushing it. However I was a little bit on the full side today. Maybe lunch was not as light as it needed to be. Oh well...
1/17/19 1.35 Miles 12:59 9:38 Mountain View, California (US)
This is a tough time of the year even for those of us that have been running for over 50 years. But the day would not be complete without getting out. Ran in sweats and if I had the time I would have taken off the sweats and gone further. Tomorrow. Always tomorrow, right?
1/16/19 2.20 Miles 21:00 9:33 Mountain View, California (US)
Got in a run before it started raining. I heard it was pouring down rain in San Francisco so I got out early. Ran out to the lake. Not a lot of people there today.
1/15/19 1.30 Miles 19:38 15:07 Mountain View, California (US)
It was raining out so I decided to do a walk/run carrying an umbrella. It is tough running with something in your hand. I know pacers and flag carriers do it all the time. It is an added challenge for sure. Go team!
1/14/19 1.75 Miles 17:07 9:47 Mountain View, Califirnia (US)
Was not sure how this run would go because my legs were dead from the 12 miles I ran over the weekend. But as I got going I wished I had more time.
1/13/19 6.02 Miles 51:44 8:36 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran over to Bill’s in Palo Alto to meet Catherine for lunch. First mile over 12 minutes for warm up. Seems like a need a mile to get going. Go team!

1/11/19 4.04 Miles 37:31 9:18 Los Altos, California (US)

1/10/19 2.10 Miles 19:23 9:14 Mountain View, California (US)
I rushed out the door not realizing I had put on two different colors of shoes. Oh well maybe it is a fashion statement. Ran out to the lake meeting Catherine for lunch. Go team!
1/9/19 2.21 Miles 18:58 8:35 Palo Alto, California (US)

1/7/19 1.30 Miles 16:12 12:28 Mountain View, California (US)
One of those busy days when it would have been easy not to have gotten out. But I did. Didn’t go very far or fast but I got in at least one mile. We are Run The World Team in Training. We will keep track of miles and team miles but only for reference. Give me some feedback on when you would like to circle the world again.
1/6/19 3.20 Miles 31:44 9:55 Mountain View, California (US)
Challenge is over but our running continues. And I hope you will still share your run with us. It was tough to get out today. It was rainy and cold. But my day is just not complete without getting out. First mile was slow (like 12 minutes) and then I picked it up.
1/5/19 0.00 Miles Los Altos, California (US)
We have just finished Run The World Challenge 3. It took us 68 days 17 hours and 18 minutes. This was a tough one. But we did it and I am so proud of each of you. Like our first two the ending comes fast. I thought we still had more time and in fact I was hoping to get out one more time to get over 300 miles. But I am so excited we have crossed the line. It has been challenging. Early snow in parts of the US and Canada and then very hot temperatures in South Africa. In the country of Palau they had to deal with heavy rains many days. There was heavy smoke in California because of the fires which made it hard to run. We had three holidays during our Challenge as well. We ran in 23 different countries. Some of us ran Ultras and others ran amazing road races. Our youngest on our team was six and our oldest 74. I will review the outstanding performances in our My Best Runs post. I just want to say again, I am proud of our team and congratulations to all of you. It has been a pleasure running with you. Awards as we have done before will be posted tomorrow.
1/5/19 6.20 Miles 59:45 9:39 Stanford, California (US)
Last run for Run The World Challenge 3. We only have a few miles to go. All three challenges have finished fast. I thought we would go until tomorrow and I was hoping to get in another run. It has been great. I am going to keep posting and total miles will continue to build but not against the challenge. I hope you will do the same. The feed will continue too. So proud of our team.
1/4/19 3.60 Miles 47:49 13:17 Los Altos, Ca (US)

1/1/19 3.45 Miles 33:56 9:51 Mountain View, California (US)
Easy run for this first day of 2019. It was 54 degrees but felt colder. We are spoiled out here in California. When so many of you dealing with really cold weather we can still run in shorts. We do take this for granted. Go team! Let’s get around the world!
12/31/18 5.52 Miles 46:40 8:28 Palo Alto, California (US)

My friend Sheldon and I went up to Golden Gate Park in San Francisco this morning to run a DSE race. I have not run one of their races for a couple of years. Does take over an hour to drive up there. Didn’t warm up enough but finally got going. Nice group. Go team!
12/29/18 6.26 Miles 54:41 8:45 Stanford, California (US)

12/6/18 1.50 Miles 15:46 10:31 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
They used a lot of brick in this town. I noticed the altitude (5600) today plus I guess the air quality is not good because it has not rained in awhile and they burn off the fields here. But it is not real bad however I notice it. We have less than 10,000 miles to go. Let’s get under 60 days. I know it is dark and cold many places but we can do it. Go team!

11/22/18 5.07 Miles 50:32 9:59 Paris, France (FR)
Second run in Paris. Nice loop along the Seine River.

Love these little Parisan Cafes. Met Catherine for a light breakfast.
11/21/18 2.50 Miles 25:55 10:22 Paris (FR)

11/20/18 1.10 Miles 29:08 26:30 Los Angeles,California (US)
Terminal 2 is really small here at LAX. Like it took five loops to reach a mile. But I had to do it since we don’t arrive in Paris until 9am tomorrow morning. Excited to be spending five days in one of our fav cities, Paris. Go team! Log those miles.
11/19/18 1.10 Miles 16:51 15:20 Mountain View, California (US)

11/18/18 6.22 Miles 55:14 8:53 Palo Alto, California (US)
Another day of smoke. Ran over to Bill’s Cafe meeting Catherine for lunch. Smoke seem a little better but ran with scarf the whole way. Looking up there does not seem to be a cloud in the sky. Would have been ideal for running. Be safe everyone. Go team!

Second run of the day. Ran around the campus. Go team!
11/17/18 7.42 Miles 1:15:38 10:12 Stanford, California (US)
It is like a ghost city over here at the Coupa Cafe on Stanford campus. I mostly walked the first three miles but then a slight breeze came up and I ran some wearing the scarf. The cost of this disaster is enormous. My heart goes out to the thousands of victims and I am thankful to all those men and women who have put their lifes on the line to get this fire under control. Be safe everyone. We will get through this as we always do. Go team!
11/16/18 4.01 Miles 1:07:55 16:57 Los Altos, California (US)
Air quality index is at 263. 150 is bad and this is not good. Walked three miles with one mile of running mixed in. Did this in two pieces with a one hour stop for lunch in between. Met up by chance with a running friend I have known for 20 years plus. Had not seen Louis for three or four years. Lots to catch up on. Go team! Be safe!
11/15/18 2.33 Miles 24:58 10:43 Mountain View, California (US)

11/14/18 1.80 Miles 27:38 15:22 Palo Alto, California (US)

11/6/18 8.20 Miles 1:17:26 9:27 Los Altos, California (US)

11/3/18 3.65 Miles 38:55 10:40 Bend, Oregon (US)

11/3/18 4.60 Miles 48:57 10:39 Bend, Oregon (US)

11/1/18 4.50 Miles 48:12 10:43 Mountain View, California (US)
I really like this new loop. I am going to call it the Lake Loop. I always like to name my courses. How about you? I walked the first half mile so my real running pace was a lot better but still slow. Off to Bend Oregon first thing. Go team. Let’s get to 1500 miles soon.
10/31/18 3.02 Miles 33:49 11:12 Mountain View, California (US)

10/28/18 6.00 Miles 49:20 8:14 Stanford, California (US)
Ran a six mile race at Stanford this morning. A running friend I had not seen in a couple of years, Michael was there. He paced me in the last mile. This was a tough course with tough hills in mile three and four. Slowest mile was 9:22 and last two were 7:38 and 7:41. Finished 34th overall. 4th 40 plus and first 60 plus. No age-group awards. This race has been going on for 33 years. Challenge 3 starts tomorrow. Go team! When your calendar says Oct 29, those miles (k’s) will count.
10/27/18 6.71 Miles 58:43 8:46 Stanford, California (US)
A simple knee strap did the trick. I had to cut my mileage back the last two weeks because of a knee situation. I finally picked up a knee strap yesterday and presto. It is amazing how a piece of tape,a strap or anew shoe can fix things. The Stanford campus is so beautiful.
10/26/18 6.60 Miles 1:48:13 16:24 Los Altos, California (US)
Walked and ran most of the first four miles. Mile six was 7:44. Felt good. Got a knee strap at lunch and it works pretty darn good. Lots of Halloween things up along the route. Go team! Almost ready for three!
10/25/18 1.23 Miles 16:53 13:44 16:53 (US)

10/22/18 2.10 Miles Mountain View, California (US)

10/21/18 2.40 Miles San Jose del Cabo (MX)
Easy day. Yesterday I ran with this couple from Albany New York for the last mile of the 5k. Really nice couple. Leaving in a couple of hours for home. Enjoy Cabo but always nice to go back home too. Challenge 3 starts Oct 29.
10/20/18 7.70 K 38:56 8:09 Cabo, Mexico (MX)

10/16/18 1.10 Miles 21:33 19:36 Los Altos, California (US)
Short walk/run before leaving for the airport. Back Sunday. It is like 85 degrees in Cabo. Going to be a little warm for running but that has never stop me before.
10/15/18 1.30 Miles Mountain View, California (US)
Leave tomorrow morning for Cabo Mexico. Next Saturday we our doing our 10th Race there. Double 8k and Ujena 5k. We are limited in size because we run entirely inside the Marina so we do little promotion. Our main event is our Ujena fashion photo shoot. I will probably take at least 25,000 images in three days. All of our models and photographers will also run Saturday. Have you signed up for RTW Challenge 3?
10/14/18 6.50 Miles Palo Alto, California (US)
My Garmin’s battery went out today. Took it really easy today as I ran/walked over to Stanford. These are some side walks along the way. Be sure to get signed up for Challenge 3. Just like a new race, you have to sign up again. We have 11 on the team so far. Click on Join the Team above.
10/13/18 2.81 Miles 49:44 17:42 Mountain View, California (US)
We keep going. Easy day for me today. These are some front yards I passed en route to our fav hamburger place called Clarke’s.
10/12/18 0.00 Miles World (US)
RTW Challenge 2 is finished. Congrats to our team who helped us run or walk enough miles (k’s) to circle the globe. That’s 24,901 miles. We finished in 44 days 18 Hours and 29 Minutes. I am very proud of our team and you have been like a family that had one goal in mind. I hope you had as much fun as I have had. We did it team! We have Run The World.
10/12/18 3.95 Miles 54:29 13:48 Los Altos, California (US)
Most likely my last run of RTW Challenge 2. I mostly walked the first mile, then ran/walked the next mile, had lunch and then ran home. Been a good 44 days. We are almost done. Less than 170 miles to go. This will be our second time around the planet for many of us and first time for others. Way to go team! It has been a challenge but so fun. I have enjoyed reading everyone’s posts (all of them) and viewing your photos. So motivating and inspiring. I hope many of you will sign up again! Enjoy the break. But post your workouts when you can. We will be here. And keep on 🏃🏃🏃🏃🎈🎈✔️ You will like my total Roger 260.66!
10/11/18 2.31 Miles 22:30 9:45 Mountain View,California (US)
Ran out to Shoreline through the 101 underpass at San Antonio. I like this course. Could easily add mega miles if I had the time. Go team!
10/10/18 2.23 Miles 39:29 17:43 Mountain View, California (US)
Easy walk/run. I think my legs needed an easy day so I actually decided to listen to my body. We are getting there team. The finish line is clearly in sight! Go team!
10/9/18 2.15 Miles 20:04 9:20 Mountain View, California (US)
My after lunch run. I picked up an abrasion on the top of my foot (been awhile) and I thought it was going to be too painful to run on it. So I walked the first 400m (about three minutes) but I realized it was not that bad. So I started running, slow at first and I then picked it up. Mile two was 8:08 and I held that pace to the end. The lunch worked out just fine. But like all Doubles, it takes about 400m before you get back into the previous pace. Go team! Lets get to 23,000 miles. After logging this we have 2,501 miles to go before we cross our finish line. We have almost circled the Globe twice. Can you believe it?
10/9/18 3.71 Miles 33:01 8:54 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran over to Philz Coffee today. Can you guess what I ordered? Fresh brewed ice tea and an avocado toast with boiled egg on top. This is like taking the break when doing a Double. But it seems a little heavier than what I normally do on race day. However, I have run pretty good after this lunch. Want to average six miles per day for six weeks. Will get there on my run back to the office. Have not averaged this many miles in years! Go team! Let’s get to 23,000 miles by this time tomorrow. Okay? Go team!
10/8/18 2.65 Miles 31:07 11:45 Mountain View, California (US)
Lots of traffic the first half mile and last half mile. Mostly walked the first mile. Pushed the last 3/4 of a mile. Could have gone further but got dark. Ran from office. We are going to reach 22,000 miles! Go team!
10/8/18 2.61 Miles 22:49 8:45 Mountain View, California (US)
I discovered this underpass on my Saturday run. This is the best way to get to Shoreline Park from our office. Goes under a major Hwy (101).This has been here since 1989 and I never knew it was here. This is my 4th run averaging under 9 minutes. Let’s get to 22,000 miles team today! Go team!
10/7/18 6.02 Miles 51:53 8:38 Los Altos, California (US)
Had to get out and bring my weekend total to 26.5 miles with all the good running everyone has been doing this weekend. Started in the light and finished in the dark. Last mile was my best. Took me 1.5 miles before I got into it. Of course I just ran out the door with no warmup. Go team! Congrats to all the good running guys. I think this Challenge is making us all stronger.
10/7/18 7.40 Miles 1:06:20 8:58 Palo Alto, California (US)
The first mile was a walk/run in 14 minutes. I was tired from yesterday . Before I left home I ate some dark chocolate and this is why I think I came alive. I ran mile four and five in 15:29. Felt good. These two challenges have really help get back in shape. More to come. Congrats to all those who raced this weekend in the many races around the world. Go team! We are getting there.
10/6/18 13.11 Miles 1:51:34 8:31 Mountain View, California (US)
I was thinking about doing the San Jose Rock n Roll half marathon tomorrow but we have 22 races to log and work for My Best Runs including the Chicago Marathon Sunday. Big day for us. So I ran the distance on a New course today. 8:30 pace after a slow 9:49 first mile. I was trashed at the end. I need to do more longer runs like this. Go team! Let’s get over 21,000 today!
10/5/18 5.08 Miles 49:22 9:44 Los Altos, California (US)
Walked/ ran over to downtown Los Altos for lunch. Easy like 23 minutes for two miles. Then ran back after taking a 45 minute lunch. Like doing a double. Let’s get 21,000 team! Go team!
10/4/18 1.10 Miles 17:29 15:54 Mountain View, CA (US)
Easy walk/run to lunch over to Erik's. Photo is from Sunday. After the Double 15k (10K+5K) we did the Sprint Double (1 mile + half mile). This is the finish of the mile. A running friend Sharlet Gilbert out kicked me. She is a very competitive and I just had nothing left and didn't even break 8 minutes after averaging 7:50 for the 15K. However, I think this was a good way to help recovery. At least I kept saying that to myself as I barely was able to do the half. But it was still FUN after we finished. Go Team! Lets get those miles logged so we can get over 20,000!
10/4/18 2.23 Miles 24:09 10:50 Los Altos, California (US)

10/3/18 1.77 Miles 22:37 12:47 Mountain View, California (US)

10/2/18 5.22 Miles 46:24 8:54 Los Altos, California (US)

10/1/18 1.80 Miles 24:16 13:29 Mountain View, California (US)

We did our half mile Run The World celebration lap at our PG Double this morning. There was only a few of us but we know all of you were there in spirit.

9/28/18 3.89 Miles 1:08:58 17:44 Los Altos, California (US)
I really am hoping to have fresh legs for our Pacific Grove Double Road Race on Sunday. Right now my legs are tired. More tired with less miles. Go figure. Maybe with a shot of race day adrenaline I will snap out of it. I am hoping to average sub 8 or at least 8:15. We are over 17,000 miles. We have 7900 more miles to go! Go team!
9/27/18 3.11 Miles 28:02 9:01 Palo Alto, California (US)
Had to get in another run. Ran over to this little park not far from the office. First mile was easy and then I pushed it. For some reason my legs are tired. Go team!
9/27/18 2.21 Miles 20:13 9:09 Mountain View, California (US)
Google set up a program a few years ago to provide bicycles mostly for their employees. There has to be a thousand or so of these bikes. I see them abandoned all over town. As well as seeing hundreds of people riding them. I think I read that someone at Google saw all the bicycles in Copenhagen and wanted to create that scene here. I think it is a five million dollar project. They have at least one van that picks up the abandoned bikes, anyway... Let’s get to 17,000 miles! Go team!
9/26/18 4.51 Miles 39:04 8:40 Palo Alto, California (US)

9/23/18 3.20 Miles 60.01 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)

At this park they have a cinder track. But look at those trees on the back stretch. Also in town there is a beautiful all weather track too. Fun day!
9/23/18 5.02 Miles 44:06 8:48 Santa Anna, Mexico (US)

9/21/18 4.35 Miles 44:30 10:14 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
Ran through town and out into the country today. The corn is almost ready to harvest. Only about a third of my run was out in the country. The rest in town. This weekend most of my runs will be in the country away from traffic and pot holes. Go team!
9/20/18 1.44 Miles 25:49 17:56 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)

9/20/18 1.51 Miles 14:54 9:53 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
Ran on the all weather path in the The park by our house. It is a 503 meter loop. I run here often. No traffic other than people who run and walk here. Hundreds of people come here everyday. There is also workout equipment there too. Just some photos in the park. Go team. We are half way! Go team!
9/19/18 1.40 Miles 29:46 21:16 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
Had to get in another mile after dinner. There are hills going back to our casa (house). This was not as easy as the time would imply. Did two laps in the park too. Go Team!
9/19/18 1.32 Miles 24:48 18:48 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
Mostly walked over to one our fav places to eat here. We call it sisters. Official name is La Toscana. Meeting Catherine here for dinner. It is 1.3 miles from our office. What a busy day. I was hoping to run 4 miles or so but just ran out of time. We are almost half way. Log your miles team! Go team!
9/19/18 1.50 Miles 16:21 10:54 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
First run in La Piedad. Down here at our MBR/Ujena office and factory. First stop after my run is always the market. Today got some cactus. I like it. Go team! Get those miles logged.
9/18/18 1.52 Miles 14:59 9:52 Los Altos, California (US)
At the airport. Rushed my run and now our flight is delayed by almost two hours. Should have called in advance. But in about 15 trips to our MBR/Ujena office in Mexico, this is our first real delay. If I had known I would have run at least five. Back Monday but will be running and logging like always. We need to get to 12,000 miles. We need everyone logging! Go team!
9/17/18 1.38 Miles 23:38 17:08 Mountain View, California (US)
Just an easy walk/run to lunch. Nothing special. Going to our MBR/Ujena office in Mexico in the morning until Monday. Short on time. Hope to get in a real run this evening. We got together last night with a runner friend and team member Shel and his wife. Go team! Log those miles!
9/16/18 6.31 Miles 54:23 8:38 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran over to Bill’s Cafe in Palo Alto. Ran first mile easy to warm up. Then pushed the rest. At one point I tried to run 20 yards at the pace Eliud Kipchoge ran 26.2 miles this morning in Berlin (4:38/mile pace). That was all I could do. 20 yards! What he did was amazing. Back to back 14:30 5k’s. Go team!
9/15/18 6.21 Miles 53:17 8:35 Stanford, California (US)
The leaves are beginning to turn colors on the Stanford campus. Did intervals the last two miles (100 to 200). Nice day. Go team!
9/14/18 4.70 Miles 54:28 11:36 Los Altos, California (US)
Very easy first two miles (31 minutes) then had lunch (free since this was number 10) and then pushed it coming home. Go team!
9/13/18 5.61 Miles 50:06 8:56 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran through the neighborhoods of Palo Alto enroute to Bill’s Cafe. Today not runningback to office so I took the long loop. Feeling good after going easy yesterday. Go team!
9/12/18 2.28 Miles 26:40 11:42 Mountain View, California (US)
Easy run/walk but then I pushed the last half mile. Ran over to the lake at Shoreline. This photo is a little patch I run through near Google. Go team!
9/11/18 4.27 Miles 40:10 9:25 Palo Alto, California (US)
I always run better after my avocado with egg on top toast. I feel a little full but no way am I going to leave any on the plate. Just too good. My mile splits (thanks Garmin) 11:26/ 9:11/45 Minute lunch/8:55/8:16/last .27 cool down. I was hoping to get faster each mile and I did. AND Lis told me how to do a collage. Go team! Run/Log/Walk/Log/then repeat!
9/11/18 2.15 Miles 21:01 9:47 Los Altos, California (US)
One for one hundred miles! In our first two weeks. Did it for the team. Otherwise I would have run less than 55 miles. You guys motivate me. We are over 7,600 miles so far. We do need the rest of our team not only running miles but logging too. I know it is easy to forget but we need everyone. It takes a full team to reach our hefty goal in less than 37 days. Go Run The World Challenge 2 team. There is so much talent here. Go team!
9/10/18 1.62 Miles 15:10 9:22 Los Altos, California (US)
I am going to let the secret out. This is one of the reasons why I run. I love fine food and look at the dinner Catherine made tonight. Add a bottle of red wine and we had a feast. Getting close to 100. We are getting there, step by step. Go team!
9/10/18 2.31 Miles 23:24 10:08 Mountain View, California (US)
My goal is to reach 100 miles by end of day tomorrow. Legs tired today but I am too close to the century mark not to do this. I think I am going to break it up into several shorter runs. Ran the bigger loop over to Erik’s for lunch. Met Catherine and then we drove back to the office. Go team! Get all your miles (k’s) logged. We need you!
9/9/18 1.75 Miles 21:28 12:16 Los Altos, California (US)
Walk/ ran the first mile and then I pushed the rest. Nice evening. I want to hit 100 miles by the end of our second week. I have two days to do it. Go team!
9/9/18 6.01 Miles 1:04:15 10:42 San Jose, California (US)
Met up with Lis this morning in San Jose. On the way back we saw Ty. So we stopped and took a photo. The Coyote Creek Trail is really a good place to run. Paved surface with lots of variety. Go Team!
9/8/18 2.41 Miles 20:53 8:40 Los Altos, California (US)
On Friday a neighbor up and down the hill who I had never met officially asked for help to fix a pretty major water leak. I did what I could to help Kim. Look what she brought us as a token of her appreciation. I noticed at her place she was growing tomatoes and other veggies. What a nice thing to do. Don’t you think? We are getting there. Log all your miles. Go team!
9/8/18 6.52 Miles 1:00:54 9:21 Stanford, California (US)
Ran over to Stanford University. My fav course. Very easy first two, then pushed mile four (7:53). Then did 10x176yds only timing the running segments followed by 1.5 miles. Beautiful day here. Go team! We are getting there.
9/7/18 5.06 Miles 48:33 9:36 Los Altos, California (US)
First two miles were easy. Took a 45 minute lunch break. Then ran another easy mile followed by two miles of intervals (175m to 300m)only timing the running segments. Quiz: This is a tree down the street, anyone know what it is called? Look at the bark. Go team!
9/6/18 2.12 Miles 22:59 10:51 Mountain View, California (US)
Second outing. Walked/ran the first mile then I pushed the second mile. Ran over to the lake at Shoreline passing by Google. This trail is one mile from our office. If you keep going it connects to the San Francisco Bay Trail that goes for miles. Only issue is that there is a lot wind out there. But normally not too hot. Go team!
9/6/18 2.03 Miles 19:39 9:41 Los Altos, California (US)
Sometimes openings in fences are well placed. In this case (which is near Ranchi off of Foothill Expressway) Runners and walkers would have to go a long way around just to go to the store, Starbucks or to do a loop run. Thanks for the person many years who came up with this idea and made it happen. Go team!
9/5/18 4.71 Miles 46:24 9:52 Palo Alto,California (US)
I really enjoy double training. In this case I ran 2.5 miles over to Philz coffee (photo) in Palo Alto. I had my avocado toast with an egg on top. I did emails there and other work for about 40 minutes. Like always it was hard to start up again but once I got going I ran 8:00 for mile four and I kept that pace going for the next .7 miles. My first mile before my break was 13:11. You should try this style of training. The main thing is not to have too heavy of a lunch or snack. For me it adds an element of fun too. If you are doing a double race or two races within just an hour or so, this is good training for that too. Go team!
9/5/18 2.52 Miles 24:09 9:35 Los Altos Hills, California (US)
Always nice to get away from traffic. This is my 2.5 mile Back 280 course. About half a mile is like this and the rest on paved back roads with hardly any cars. At this part of the course there are grape vines. Going to run at lunch too.
9/4/18 2.16 Miles 22:20 10:21 Mountain View, California (US)
Second run. This time from our offices out to the lake at Shoreline Park. Headwind most of the way. Over 3500 miles in total now. I possibility might go out again since I am not sure when I will be over 60 again. Go team!
9/4/18 1.64 Miles 19:33 11:56 Los Altos, California (US)
Ran or should I say walked/run Quinn Hill. It is a quarter of a mile that is really steep. One of these days I will run the whole way. Will get out again. The first week is coming to a close in 12 hours. We were at 3,364 miles at this time on Challenge one. We are ahead. But we need more of our Runners logging. And we need a few more runners. Go Team!
9/3/18 6.60 Miles 1:04:26 9:46 Los Altos, California (US)
Second run. My legs had more life in them after the first mile than my morning run. I have to make 60 miles. Needed this to pull it off tomorrow. I love this feeling of going beyond what you think you can do. Since a lot of time I end up having a situation (injury as you know it) when I increase mileage, I have not been wearing the same shoe two times in a row. Rotating about four pairs, each a different weight but all the same brand (I am an adidas guy). Go team!
9/3/18 5.51 Miles 50:56 9:15 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran from the house to Billy’s Cafe in Palo Alto. Ran the first two miles easy and then I pushed it. Tired legs but happy to hit 50 miles for week one with a day to go. Everyone is doing so good. And I am really enjoying reading your posts and looking at the photos. It makes it more personal. Go team! This is a foot bridge I go over on this course.
9/2/18 5.55 Miles 1:02:11 11:13 Los Gatos, California (US)
Second half of run. Wow, that was tough. A little hotter (75 degrees) than most of the week. It was one foot in front of the other in this one. Walked the hills. I just love the Los Gatos Creek Trail. Go team!
9/2/18 5.51 Miles 52:33 9:33 Los Gatos, California (US)
Half done. Doing double training today. Running the Los Gatos Creek Trail. I am at the Orchard Valley Coffee Shop now having a half time break. A roll, bottle of water and coffee. This is a 30 minute. Then I will head back to Los Gatos. Go team!
9/1/18 3.43 Miles 33:38 9:49 Los Altos, California (US)
Second run. Was just going to do two miles very easy, then I pushed a mile (8:23) and then did 4x176 yards (.1) at about 40 seconds each. After putting up the story about Michael Wardian, how could I not do more. Go Team! Just a half mile of this course looks like this. The rest are roads.
9/1/18 7.40 Miles 1:03:57 8:39 Stanford, California (US)
Actually this course which is my current fav starts in Los Altos, then goes into Palo Alto and finished at Stanford University. Non-busy roads and bike paths the whole way. Just have to cross two major roads. My workout: three miles easy (9:30 pace), then pushed mile four (7:52) and mile five (8:19). Gotta love Garmin. Then I did 10x176 yards (.1). Then one mile steady at 8:30 followed by 4x176 Yard’s. Ran all the 176 at 39-42 seconds each (6:42/mile pace). It was a good day. Relaxing now at Coupa Cafe on campus. Catherine and I are having lunch. Does not get much better than this. Perfect running weather. Go team! Everyone have a good one! Photo at finish on campus.
8/31/18 3.61 Miles 36:29 10:07 Los Altos, California (US)
As expected my legs were tired from yesterday. Ran two easy to lunch and then pushed back. Go team!
8/30/18 13.21 Miles 2:09:54 9:51 Los Altos, California (US)
I am so motivated by our Challenge. I started out running today and I couldn’t stop. I broke it into three pieces. Two miles in 31:18. Then had lunch. Then 7.39 miles at 8:52 pace with last mile right at 8 Minutes. The after a 20 minutes break I ran 3.82 miles at 9:15/mile pace. I did this for me but mostly for you, our team. Thanks for the motivation. Photo was the finish line.
8/29/18 2.11 Miles 27:29 13:02 Mountain View, California (US)
We are off and running. So nice to be doing this challenge with our team again. The first days are the hardest with so many miles to go. But like always it is one step at a time. Every mile counts. This was my lunch walk/run. Legs tired from my morning run. In the middle was lunch. Good Double Racing training Too. Go team!
8/29/18 4.31 Miles 36:12 8:24 Los Altos, California (US)
It is my daughter’s birthday today. She was born in 1972. Here we are running at the fun runs at Foothill college we held. Happy Birthday Lis! Glad to have you on our Team! And Owen Too! Go Team! Good to be doing this again with all of you!
8/28/18 2.41 Miles 23:54 9:56 Mountain View, California (US)
Last run before Challenge 2 starts tomorrow. First mile in sweat pants. Took them off the pushed after that. Good luck everyone. We can do this! Go team!
8/27/18 4.22 Miles 52:38 12:29 Palo Alto, California (US)
Nice weather for running. Was only going to walk mostly because my legs were tired from the weekend. However after a light lunch I ran most of the last two miles. Getting ready for Wednesday!
8/26/18 2.35 Miles 25:13 10:44 Los Altos, California (US)
Getting back on track for the challenge. Plus I wanted to go over 30 miles for my Monday to Sunday week on Strava. Hit 32 for week. Want to shoot for 30-35 for the challenge.
8/26/18 8.01 Miles 1:20:32 10:04 San Jose, California (US)
Ran with Owen and Lisa this morning on the Coyote Creek Trail. This was Owen’s second time at eight miles. We took the first mile (11:17) and eighth mile (13:45) easy. Ran the six in between at about 9:10/mile pace. Owen just turned 12 and he handled this well.
8/25/18 6.21 Miles 52:27 8:27 Stanford, California (US)
First mile very easy,pushed the next three. Then did intervals the last 2.2 only timing the running parted. Walked another 1.5 miles in between but didn’t’t count it. Ready to start Our challenge Wednesday. At Stanford University.
8/24/18 4.54 Miles 1:06:27 14:39 Los Altos, California (US)
This was a two part run. Two miles very easy with lots of walking over to lunch and then 2.54 miles back with the last 1.5 miles at 8:30/mile pace. Would have probably done 5 miles if the Challenge was on. We start Wednesday. Can’t wait! How about you?
8/23/18 1.36 Miles 19:26 14:18 Mountain View, California (US)
Got in some more miles. I will do this more often when we start up again. Been doing a run or at least a walk to lunch for a couple of years now. It gets harder in the winter.
8/23/18 2.22 Miles 21:28 9:41 Los Altos, California (US)
First mile was easy (10:59) and I pushed the last 3/4 of a mile. We are just 6 days away. We now have 108 members on our team. We need 67 more runners to reach our goal. Help us spread the word. Going to be fun again. I can’t wait!
8/22/18 2.27 Miles 22:37 9:58 Mountain View, California (US)
Ran out the lake. Meeting Catherine for lunch. Ran/walked the first mile and then I pushed it. Wore sweat pants. Nice day for running. Challenge 2 starts in a week! Are you ready to go for the record?
8/21/18 4.11 Miles 46:18 11:16 Palo Alto, California (US)
Good to be back home. Ran over to my fav ice tea and avocado toast place, did some social media work and then walked/run back to the office. We start Challenge 2 a week from tomorrow.
8/20/18 1.12 Miles 11:12 10:00 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
Last run in Mexico before heading home. I was a little short on time so I just ran down to the park, did a couple of laps and walked back to the house. Knee is holding up.
8/19/18 4.65 Miles 41:25 8:55 La Piedad (MX)
Ran three miles at about 9:50/mile pace. I then did 1.65 miles of 180/210 meter intervals. I wrapped my knee which worked. Going to keep it wrapped. Want to average 35miles per week for the challenge but i don’t want to have this knee prevent that. Ran by a lot corn fields outside of town.
8/18/18 2.01 Miles 45:43 22:45 La Piedad (MX)
Walked to this pork place to meet Catherine for lunch, then walked over to the Plaza. Nice day out. Watching the knee. Been massaging it.
8/18/18 3.15 Miles 35:32 11:17 La Piedad (MX)
It was one of those days. Just never got into the run. Yesterday I noticed my knee was bothering me a bit out of the blue. Felt a little weird during my run/walk. I hope it doesn’t go south on me. Ran on the trail in the park near our place.
8/17/18 2.81 Miles 59:00 21:00 La Piedad (MX)
These are my walk to lunch (photo just across from our office) and back and then my walk home miles. All walking but I think my legs needed these this afternoon. Hope to get in some longer runs this weekend.
8/17/18 3.35 Miles 36:14 10:49 La Piedad (MX)
Ran down to the Plaza. The church here looks amazing and every trip we make a point of going to the Plaza once or twice. Just an easy run, nothing special.
8/16/18 1.16 Miles 24:45 21:21 La Piedad (MX)
My idea was to get out of our office and run at least three miles. I did leave the office at 7:15 and it started pouring down rain shortly afterwards. But at least I got in this the time including the time I was waiting under an over hang for the rain to let up some. It has really been raining here but mostly at night. But it is the raining season.
8/16/18 1.52 Miles 15:49 10:25 La Piedad, Mexico (MX)
The first thing I do when I come down to our MBR/Ujena office is run the next morning and go to market to buy some delicious fruits.
8/15/18 1.23 Miles 11:58 9:44 Los Altos, California (US)
Short on time. Got in a run before we leave for our place and MBR/Ujena office in Mexico. Will be logging from there (5300 feet altitude) the next few days. Ran my Hillview loop just now. Beautiful running weather. Next Challenge starts August 29.
8/14/18 5.21 Miles 46:28 8:56 Palo Alto, California (US)
Best lunch run of the year. Ran two miles over to Piltz for lunch. Pace was like 9:30/Mile. After a light lunch I started off easy and picked it up. Last mile was 7:58. This felt good and what I live for.
8/13/18 1.12 Miles 18:33 16:34 Mountain View, California (US)
I am committed to lose seven pounds. 152 does not work for me. Gained this weight earlier in the year when I was dealing with some situations (injuries). Notice anything missing from this photo? No chips. Those are 200 calories a bag. No red wine last night. Once I get this off with regular 25-35 mile weeks I can stay in check and return to chips and wine in no particular order. Next challenge starts in two weeks from Wednesday. Very easy day.
8/12/18 5.31 Miles 47:25 8:56 Palo Alto, California (US)
My legs were tired from yesterday so I starting out walking. I did a little running my first mile (12:26). Then I just pushed it and kept running. At two miles I decided to start pushing it. At first I was only going a mile but I decided to keep going. I did these two miles at 7:49 pace. Then I did intervals for the last 1.3 miles. Once I lose these extra seven pounds I should be able to run sub 8 pace for our Double 15k Sept 30 in Pacific Grove. That’s the plan.
8/11/18 6.21 Miles 55:25 8:56 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran my current favorite course from my house in Los Altos to Stanford University. End up at Coupa Cafe behind the Hoover Tower. My run: easy run/walk first mile in 11:59, solid three miles, then 10x176 yards with non timed walks between, half mile in four minutes then 7x176 yards under 7 pace. Did my first ten in 6:59. The challenge really helped my conditioning but I have a ways to go.
8/10/18 4.06 Miles 1:11:58 17:44 Los Altos, California (US)
First post AC note. After Challenge! Interesting, I probably would have gone a little longer and for sure faster. I did this only for me and not for the team. Makes a difference at least for me. It seemed like we had all the time in the world to run and log. And then it was over. Will our next one starts Aug 29. Let’s improve on our performance, okay? I am going to continue posting here and I hope you will too. I have run or walked by the Redwood Grove Reserve for years until I discovered it a month ago. It is only 1.4 miles from the house. It is not big but it makes for a nice added loop before getting back on the roads. I know a lot of you like exploring too. 86 degrees and 36% humidity is enough for me.
8/9/18 1.34 Miles 13:06 9:47 Los Altos, California (US)
I just had to get out and get in one more run for the Run The World Global Run Challenge July 4, 2018. We are so close and with Runners all over the world in different time zones I just had to do this. It was totally dark, I had eaten a nice dinner but I had to do this for the team and me. We have done it. We have logged enough miles to circle the world with a team of 175. This was a team effort. We kept it together, we did the miles and we took the time to log the miles. This is a special group. None of us knew what to expect. Every mile counted. Now we can celebrate. We Run The World!
8/9/18 1.24 Miles 16:40 13:27 Mt View, Ca (US)
I was going to run further but I got out late. We all know how that happens. Go Team!Had to have my chips for lunch along with half sandwich.
8/9/18 2.11 Miles 17:13 8:10 Los Altos, California (US)
Yesterday was a light day and my legs were fresh today. I wanted to see what I could do. Ran first mile in 9:17 and then I pushed it. Felt good. I just need to take off six pounds for racing. I just love food so much and a couple glasses of red wine. We have almost circled the world. We need to stay focused and get in our miles and then get them logged. Okay? Go Team! I am proud of each of you. Let’s do it!
8/8/18 2.31 Miles 26:53 11:39 Mountain View, California (US)
My lunch run loop over to Erik’s and met Catherine there. This loop takes me on the Permanente Creek Trail. This photo shows the foot bridge over 101. Go Team. We have less than 1300 miles to go.
8/7/18 3.71 Miles 51:06 13:47 Palo Alto, California (US)
Best ice tea in town and always with extra mint. Walked/run over to lunch and then ran back to the office. We have less than 2000 miles to go before we reach our finish line. Go Team!
8/7/18 1.64 Miles 19:14 11:44 Los Altos, California (US)
Did my Quinn Hill loop. This is one tough hill. Ran about half the Hill but more than last time. If you have not ordered your shirt and medal, you should before we run out of shirts. Link above.
8/6/18 1.61 Miles 27:30 17:05 Los Altos, California (US)
Been a very busy day. Always the case the day after an event. We are getting there team but we have to stay focused. Walk/run tonight in the dark. Found some light on my loop course fromthe House.
8/6/18 2.11 Miles 20:34 9:45 Mountain View, California (US)
Legs are a little tired but had a solid run. You might have noticed, we now have our offical time so we know where we are at. Time based in California USA time. When we hit 24,901 miles we will record our final time. Go team!
8/5/18 2.61 Miles 39:15 15:03 Los Altos, California (US)
After a long day that started at 3:30am, I was not going to go out again. However, I just felt like I needed a shakeout walk/run. I am glad I did this. Ran on the trails near my house. Go Team!
8/5/18 0.53 Miles San Francisco, California (US)
This was our Run The World Challenge celebration lap run at Chrissy Field near the Golden Gate Bridge this morning after our Golden Gate Double and Ujena 5k/3k. I wished we all could have run together but since we are spread out all over the world I knew that was not possible. I was thinking of you all. I was hoping we could finish within 30 days but we didn’t. But we well soon. Log your miles! We are getting close. We will record our final performance based on PDT (California time), like 37 days, 17 hours and 31 minutes. So our runners in other time zones can continue to log until we have completed our goal. This will be the world best for this event. Starting August 29 we will try to beat it. As a review: a Run The World Global Run Challenge team can not be any bigger than 200 active runners. A person is not active until they post at least one mile (1.6k). A team has to run some miles (k’s) in at least 10 different countries. A team has to have at least one active runner in all age groups - 16 and under, 17-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69 and 70 plus. At least 25% of a team must be either female or male. We met all these requirements on our July 4 team. I thought it was important to set up standards because obviously a team of 976 people could run a Marathon and reach this goal in a day. But a team can not be bigger than 200 and miles have to be run in at least 10 different countries. This is the technical part of our challenge and some changes has been made as this event has been created. I know that this challenge has motivated many of us and have inspired (with post here and profiles on our members) many others. This is our mission, we are celebrating running and reaching our goal. Log on! Go Team!
8/5/18 3.00 K 15:19 8:13 San Francisco, California (US)
This was the second leg of the Double 8k. This time 3k. I was more warmed up for this one. Finished first 70 plus. I ran about 8:20 pace. Go Team!
8/5/18 5.00 K 25:52 8:20 San Francisco, California (US)
First 5k leg of our Double 8k. No warm up. Nice day to run in SF. Some wind but was not too bad. We had over 550 Runners for our races. Fun times.
8/4/18 0.83 Miles 8:51 10:40 San Francisco, California (US)
Needed this shake out run after being on my feet for five bours. Ran from our hotel through the streets of SF.
8/4/18 5.35 Miles San Francisco, California (US)
Marked the courses for our races tomorrow. 5k and 3k courses are set. Sunny but windy but the wind should die down by morning. James, Cameron and I spent about three hours.
8/3/18 2.24 Miles 19:24 8:40 Los Altos, California (US)
Second run. Getting ready for our Golden Gate Double 8k and Ujena 5k/3k. 600 bananas should do for our sold out event. We have Runners coming from all over the world. Going to be fun. And we are doing our Run The World celebration lap too. Go team. Log those miles.
8/3/18 4.41 Miles 47:37 10:48 Los Altos, California (US)
This is the banner we are going to carry when we run a celebration lap this Sunday in San Francisco (Chrissy Field by the Golden Gate Bridge) at 9:45an after the races. If you have a Run The World shirt be sure to bring it. Otherwise you can buy one for $25 at Packet Pick up (Sports Basement noon to 5pm) or at Chrissy Field from 7 to 9 am. Anyone wearing the shirt will get a medal. I had hoped we would have finished but we haven’t yet. We are at 20,084 miles. This is a chance for us to get together and celebrate what we done. If you can’t join us, you can order the shirt and we will send the medal when we finish. Your support is appreciated,
8/2/18 1.15 Miles 15:52 13:48 Mountain View, California (US)
I wanted to get in a few more miles but just too busy of a day. We have 500 runners doing our Race Sunday (Golden Gate Double and 5k/3k) and been dealing with last minute stuff. I am hoping to get out again. Have you checked out the Best Performance link? Go Team!
8/1/18 2.73 Miles 25:28 9:20 Mountain View, California (US)
Not a real fast run but one of just a few over the last 29 days where I did not have the urge to walk. I tripped about ten days before we started and messed up a rib. Anyway good to have a good run. This is why it is called Shoreline Park. This is the SF Bay.
7/31/18 4.21 Miles 43:56 10:27 Palo Alto, California (US)
Found this little park along my course. Had never seen it before. A real gem. It is only a quarter mile around but it adds a lot to my course which is just on roads through Palo Alto. Go Team! Log those miles (k's).
7/30/18 2.31 Miles 28:16 12:15 Mountain View, California (US)
First mile was very easy (walk/run) and then I ran the rest of it. This is a loop course through google land and I end up at Erik’s.
7/30/18 2.23 Miles 21:52 9:49 Los Altos, California (US)
Lots of beautiful roses in our neighborhood. My first mile was very easy and I pushed the rest to get a decent average pace. Go Team! We need every mile!
7/29/18 8.10 Miles 1:20:51 9:59 San Jose, California (US)
Got together with Lis, Michael and Owen. We ran/walked the first 1.5 miles and then my Grandson Owen (11) and I went out ahead. Owen and I ran mile six in 8:45 and mile eight in 8:21. We ran the Coyote Creek Trail. So much fun this morning. Go Team!
7/28/18 2.21 Miles 26:40 12:04 Stanford, California (US)
Did this right after my 4.5 miler. This one much slower. I ended at at the Rodin Sculpture Garden on the Stanford Campus. There are so many people here today. Got my regular Pop Chips, decaf coffee and a bottle of water at Coupa Cafe on campus. Catherine is picking me up for lunch (hamburger at Clarke’s of course) and then we are going to a movie. I like days like this. The 6.7 miles of running gets it going... Go Team!!! Everyone needs to log!
7/28/18 4.51 Miles 37:38 8:21 Palo Alto, California (US)
First mile was a warmup and then I pushed from there to four miles. Then I ran 150-200m intervals with 50-150m walk in between only timing the running parts. Nice running weather. Just about a half mile of the course looks like this.
7/27/18 4.07 Miles 40:17 9:54 Los Altos, California (US)
Ran downtown Los Altos for a light lunch and then back. There are many cool looking older homes along University Ave. This is one of them. Go Team!
7/26/18 4.12 Miles 43:25 10:33 Palo Alto, California (US)
Ran over to Philz coffee in Palo Alto for lunch. As I have posted before they make the best ice tea in town and I always get extra mint. And the Avocada Toast is to die for. I thought I might need a fresh shirt so I brought along my Boston shirt. Didn’t need it but I thought it added to the shot. Go Team!
7/26/18 1.72 Miles 16:54 9:50 Los Altos, California (US)
I have run by this slide maybe a thousand times since 1987. It is about a quarter mile from my house. I have always thought it would be a cool slide for kids, will maybe even adults. Going to run again from the office. Go Team!
7/25/18 2.22 Miles 21:24 9:39 Mountain View, California (US)
Ran from our office to the lake at Shoreline. It is amazing how close this is to our office. I run by the Google headquarters building always seeing hundreds of their employees. Good spot to end up at. Catherine meets me at the Lakeside Cafe for lunch and we drive back. Go team!
7/25/18 1.36 Miles 13:13 9:44 Los Altos, California (US)
First half mile was a warm up. Pushed it after that. Finished at the sign. It said END so I stopped. Going to be hot today. Will go out again.
7/24/18 1.31 Miles 18:52 14:25 Mountain View, Ca (US)
My easy lunch run. One thing I stay away from are sodas on a regular basis. However, I do like a Dr Pepper and chips maybe 10 times a year. Back in my Runner’s World days we had a vendening machine in our lunch room and it stocked Dr Pepper. I got in a habit of getting one everyday at three. After two weeks I had put on a few pounds. I stopped the 3pm ritual and the extra weight vanished in a couple of weeks. So no, I just look at these machines and drink none sweat ice tea from the dispenser to the left at Erik’s. Go team!
7/24/18 1.36 Miles 13:14 9:44 Los Altos, California (US)
Easy first half mile and then jammed the rest after a stop. By chance ran into a past running buddy, Dee. She has had a few injuries and does more biking now. A few years ago (like 10) she was too in her age-group. It was really ice seeing her and probably gave me the motivation to push the last half mile.
7/23/18 1.13 Miles 13:34 12:01 Mountain View, California (US)
This classic photo hangs in my office. I look at it often not believing what I see. These guys don’t look concerned at all. I think of some of the running feats people do. Blasting down a mountain, running on trails along cliffs or running at night with hardly any light. Things I could not do at least at 70. Is it fear that gets in the way? Just like I could never do what these guys on this beam are doing. I could not be this relaxed. No way. Now or ever in my life. Maybe fear is the killer? Last night we had dinner with Michael at the top of Mt Bachelor and we took the chair lift up. That freaked me out but I handled it. Have no fear! I wished I could! The dinner at the top was so good and worth the trip up. Go team!
7/23/18 1.51 Miles 19:49 13:08 Los Altos, California (US)
Back home in California. Little hotter here but still good running weather. Going out again. Go Team!
7/22/18 1.64 Miles 18:51 11:30 Bend, Oregon (US)
Last run in Bear for awhile. Didn’t feel like going out but I am glad I did. Found this really cool street just a half mile from Mike”s place. Go Team!
7/22/18 2.70 Miles 37:17 13:49 Bend, Oregon (US)
Easy walk/run this morning with Michael and Bear. New Trail, a keeper. So many great places to run here. Go Team
7/21/18 11.14 Miles 2:22:37 12:49 Bend, Oregon (US)
Hiked a lot of the first six miles and Michael, Bear and I stopped for a light lunch and some water. Ran the last five miles. There were lots of runners on the trail by the river. The views were outstanding. Now at 100 miles for the first 18 days. Our team is getting in a lot of miles today. Good to see it! Go team!
7/20/18 1.11 Miles 19:11 17:17 Bend, Oregon (US)
Did a walk/run with Michael and Bear after dinner. A little bit on the full side but it was good to do this along the river by the Mill. Beautiful out!
7/20/18 3.51 Miles 32:48 9:21 Bend, Oregon (US)
First run in Bend Oregon. Ran with my son Michael with our grandson Bear in the stroller. It is beautiful here and you can still see the snow in the mountains. We are going to do something I have not done in 35 years this afternoon,we are going fresh water fishing. Go team!
7/19/18 4.52 Miles 50:20 11:09 Los Altos, California (US)
Flying up the Bend Oregon. At the airport. Flight delayed one hour. Well at least it gives me time to post this. Easy run to lunch downtown Los Altos and then back. Next few runs in Bend Oregon. Go team!
7/18/18 2.06 Miles 23:40 11:30 Mountain View, California (US)
Ran out to the Shoreline Lake. Took the first mile easy as a warmup and then pushed it. Beautiful day out here. Met Catherine for lunch and we drove back to the office.
7/18/18 1.52 Miles 17:52 11:46 Los Altos, California (US)
Walked most of the first .7 and then ran the rest. We got in our medals today. They were designed by our team member Geoff Smith. I think he did a good job.
7/17/18 2.54 Miles 29:44 11:43 Sunnyvale, California (US)
The battery on my iPhone needed to be replaced and they said it would take an hour. Since it did not make any sense to go back to the office (which is 20 minutes away), I was glad I had running shoes with me. I found this cool little park near by and I got in a couple. Go team!
7/17/18 3.63 Miles 33:36 9:16 Palo Alto, California (US)
Did a Double run. Ran over to Philz Coffee in Palo Alto. Had the best ice tea in town and an Avocado Toast for lunch. Healthy but I little heavy and then ran back to our Ujena/MBR offices. I always have more energy the second part just like in our Double Racing events. Go team!
7/17/18 1.61 Miles 18:02 11:13 Los Altos, California (US)
Run the Quinn Hill loop again. This is one tough hill and I ran half of it today. Cool but the humidity must be high. I am sweating like a dog as I write this. This takes me over 70 and more to come today. Go team!
7/16/18 3.25 Miles 35:46 11:01 Mountain View, California (US)
Ran out to the lake at Shoreline Park near Google headquarters. Had a light lunch and ran back. Always a lot of birds and their babies around. Go Team!
7/16/18 2.23 Miles 21:04 9:27 Los Altos, California (US)
I have run tens of thousands of miles since 1987 in these roads in Los Altos. Very little traffic and the roads are in good shape. This morning was perfect running weather. Go Team! I”ll be back with more.
7/15/18 2.11 Miles 20:40 9:48 Los Altos, California (US)
