dome ain't got no roof Running Blog at FastRunningBlog.Com Sat, 21 Apr 2018 15:03:58 FeedCreator 1.7.2 Sat, Apr 21, 2018 <p>felt pretty good. i was running ~5 seconds behind the 1st woman the entire race. finally started making up ground with around 0.2 to go. i got right on her heels as we entered the finish stretch and we got a &quot;go girls&quot; cheer from someone, which fired up her kick. i was already on my last gear and couldn&#39;t hang on. finished 2-3 seconds behind and got mrs. silver.</p> <p>my lol goal was sub-19 and my more reasonable goal was sub-19:20, so i was right where i expected to be.&nbsp;</p> <p>lots of racing opportunities coming up (including on the track), so&nbsp;i really want to get back into good shape now. want is different than will, but i&#39;ll work on it.&nbsp;</p> Sat, 21 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Fri, Apr 20, 2018 <p>green lake loop + woodland park zoo trail</p> Fri, 20 Apr 2018 06:00:00 Thu, Apr 19, 2018 green lake loop x 2 my life is at a standstill waiting on job news. i continue to search but it's hard after so many rejections. in hindsight i should have gotten a degree in CEOing or NBA refereeing. or really anything else than what i have, which has gotten me nowhere.
