My new Saucony Kinvara 4 #runningshoes. After a single mile, I can tell I need to practice in them, but they did make me run faster than my Asics. Usually do 8:40-9:00, but I did 7:49 in these. Not bad. I look forward to our future together. I’ll probably use these for shorter runs like 5k and for speedwork. Will still want cushion for longer, slower runs. #running #fitness #saucony #4mm #lowdrop #kinvara4

When to replace running shoes: between 400 and 500 miles. Old running shoe vs new running shoe comparison. Same make and model: Asics Nimbus 15. About 450 miles on the old one. Time for replacement, don’t ya think? #running #runningshoes #fitness #asics

Does anyone know anything about this race in #Albuquerque, New Mexico? I’m thinking about #running it while I’m in town visiting, but I’ll need a place to store my luggage onsite since I’ll be hitting the airport immediately afterward. Any ideas? #runner #ABQ #newmexico #fitness #10k #irunfit

Motivation for Faster Running

Motivation for Faster Running

If I look excited in this picture to you, I was. It’s because I took it last week, immediately after I ran the fastest 10k I’ve run since 2012. It wasn’t anything terribly impressive (58 minutes, and my best is 54 minutes), but I was really excited about it. I was coming off a hip injury, getting ready for a half-marathon, and fighting humidity and asthma. I felt fantastic.

When I started the run…

Yay! Broke 10 miles! Unbelievably hot and humid, though. Happy Labor Day. It looks like I’ve earned that chicken stew and Mexican Cornbread ima eat in a bit.  #running #laborday #longrun #halfmarathon #10miles #tenmiler #runner #fitness

Dinner last night: Kaiser roll, turkey burger with poblano pepper, avocado, red onion, and heirloom tomato. And sweet potato fries with rosemary ketchup we made. #eatclean #fitness #eathealthy #health #runner #foodisfuel #veggies #vegetables

Today’s #TBT is that time I licked an actual spaceship in hopes I’d be the first person to contract an extraterrestrial disease and go down in the history books. Oh well. Win some, lose some. I still licked something that was in outer space, and you haven’t. 😜🚀 #awesome #outerspace #huntsville #spaceandrocketcenter #nasa #throwbackthursday
