Jeff’s Post We R Still Here :)

Wow, where does the time go – Just wanted to give everyone a quick update.  For the first time in a few years we are going to have a pretty quiet summer racing wise.  I’m actually looking forward to the break.  I ran a PW (Personal Worst) half marathon a few weeks ago and it was the first time in a long time I was counting miles early on – never a good thing.  I just wasn’t where I needed to be mentally and I knew it before, during and after the race.  A break from racing doesn’t mean a break from training though.  I’m looking forward to just running without the pressure of a race or a particular mileage goal per week.   I also plan on more time on the bike and more time with weights – I need a reboot and quite honestly racing without Tamara (still dealing with her IT Band issue) just isn’t as much fun for either one of us.

We just got back from a week in Maine and spent a few days in Ogunquit.  If you are ever in that area you need to go there so beautiful!  I managed to get a short 4 mile scenic run in one of the mornings on Marginal Way. It is a beautiful paved path along the coast with vistas of rocks and water, just beautiful!

Happy Running!
