Cheering at Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon

For the fourth year I was at the Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon, the first two years I was a runner, the last two years I stood on the sidelines and cheered. To be honest, last year it was very strange to be on the other side of a marathon that I’d run the previous two years. […]

Wordless Wednesday: Dry running gear

Lakefront Marathon 2011

How did it go … well, the bus ride with the other DM’rs was a lot of fun Jeff. picked me up at VERY early o’clock, we were first to the bus stop. Go figure. I’d expect nothing but that from Jeff. Soon we were met up with John C., John P., Laurie S. and […]

About that knee ….

So the question is what to do about my stupid knee. It seems the only way to get a real answer is through an MRI, which is happening today at 11:00 a.m. My fingers are crossed that it’s not damaged, torn, or blown to pieces (highly unlikely with that last one) and perhaps it’ll feel […]

Ice, heat, repeat

Well it seems that it wasn’t just a “Hey, I’m okay!” moment. Come Saturday, I realized I was more injured than I thought […]

100 miles

The run is almost over

This is a photo that I took on the last mile of my very last long training run for the 2010 Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon. Passing the water tower meant that I was finally to the top of the hill and that I was ALMOST done. There’s only seven weeks left to train this year. This week […]

Running update & foodies get ready

Well I’m starting to get into the longer mileage for my training for the Lakefront Marathon. I’ve got 14 to do this weekend, I’ll probably try to do them on Saturday morning with the Striders. Jeff has his Home Alone run on Sunday, which I’ll most likely be at too. I’m not sure I’ll do […]
