Charlie and I were visiting my parents down at Amelia Island, so we went for a short run while there at Fernandina Beach, which was very flat, a touch warm, and also had very good running company.

Shakey’s Run?

Start time: 2/15/2016, 8:00 am
Location: LAX Airport
Distance: 6.02 miles
Average pace: 9:09 min/mile
Total Miles For February: 27 miles

Planned on running while out of town, but only squeezed in this one run the morning of the last day. On the bright side, it was outside instead of on the treadmill, so that’s a victory. Also it turns out Shakey’s Pizza still exists. I had no idea any were left.

Okie Treadmill

Start time: 12/8/2015, 5:45 am
Location: NCED gym (Norman, Oklahoma)

Total Miles For December: 20 miles
Total Miles For 2015: 810 miles

Ran 5 miles on a less-than-ideal treadmill as part of a work trip. Would have rather run outside but it’s dark before we start and after we finish for the day, plus there’s not much in the way of places to run outside where the conference center is located. Ah well.

Rehoboth Beach Run

Start time: 10/30/2015, 2:30 pm
Location: Rehoboth Beach, Henlopen Acres
Distance: 6 miles
Average pace: 8:55 min/mile
Total Miles For October: 81 miles
Total Miles For 2015: 683 miles
Current Shoes: 376 miles

Went for a Friday afternoon run w/ Charlie while we were at Rehoboth Beach. We ran the length of the boardwalk for a portion of it, and then headed into Henlopen Acres and marveled at the uber-expensive homes before backtracking to finish. Mostly-flat course, with a few hills in Henlopen. All in all a nice run (if a tiny bit breezy in places).

Rocking the Bosque

Start time: 9/24/2014 & 9/27/2014, 7:30am
Location: Rio Grande Bosque, Bernalillo, NM
Distance: 5.27 & 5 miles
Average pace: 10:10 & 9:41 min/mile

Total Miles For 2014: 600 miles

Went on vacation to New Mexico and got to run two times along the Rio Grande River’s bosque area w/ Charlie while we were there. The first time was a combination of loops on a flat trail and going up and down the ridge to the south; the second time we stuck just to the loops. Very pleasant run, although being even at just 5000 feet definitely made a real difference!

I was on a business trip this week, one in a secure location which limited where I could and could not run. To top it off, it was on a mountain and which was not meant for people to walk from place to place. In short, there was nowhere to really run for more than half a mile. So… to the dreaded treadmill, alas.

I’d hoped to get an outdoor run on the weekend while in LA, but events conspired against me. Ah well. For treadmill runs, at least, not too bad.

Hotel Treadmill

Between work and grad school and a lack of company, running has been few and far between this month it seems. But I managed to knock out a few miles on the (ugh) hotel treadmill.

The Bad

Start time: 2/18/13, 7:00am
Location: LAX Marriott
Distance: 4 miles
Average pace: 9:21min/mile
Total Miles For February: 32 miles

The run itself wasn’t too bad. But as soon as it was over, my left hamstring started killing me. *sigh* (And just in time for a 5-hour flight home.) Have been icing it today and taking some ibuprofen. We shall see.

The Good

Was going to run along the Strand in Venice Beach & Santa Monica on this trip… and then I forgot to bring the charger for the Garmin. *sigh* With an 11-miler scheduled, I sucked it up and ran it on the treadmill at the hotel gym. Since it shuts off every 60 minutes, I broke it up into two segments and used the gap in-between to refill the water bottle. I hate treadmill running with a white hot passion but this was ok.
