Birch Bay Race

Sunday, April 11th, 2021

15k, 1:37 time, 10:27 pace, minorly keto’ed (I don’t think that fat adapted). Terrible time, but it was the first race in about a year and a half. The route was beautiful. About three miles runs along Birch Bay, into Birch Bay State Park for a mile or two, then back up along the bay. […]

Captain Jack’s 12K Treasure Run Report

Sunday, October 27th, 2019

Hey, I came in third in my age group again. 1:11:45, 9:37 pace! On keto! This was a combined 5, 10, and 12K race. Holy crap, it was cold out there. So freakin’ cold. 39 Fahrenheit at the start. I took running pants with me in the car, but felt confident it would warm up, […]

Pre-final Run Report

Saturday, October 26th, 2019

This is the night before the final run of the season. I’ve worked my way up from 12 miles per week up to 18. Pace has been anywhere from 10-11:30. Legs and muscles are sore afterwards as always. I really have to be religious about post-run stretches to keep things under control. Not worried about […]

Iron Horse Half Marathon Report

Sunday, August 25th, 2019

So. First half marathon under keto. Went ok, but not good. Two out of three standard goals were met: 1) Don’t die 2) Finish 3) Don’t walk. At around mile 7, I stopped for about a minute to take down a decayed Pokemon Gym. Again at mile 10 water station, I had to walk for […]

Final Training Week Before Iron Horse

Saturday, August 24th, 2019

Twenty miles this week, with the longest being 8 miles. Yes, I know this is rushed. Yes, I know I’m violating the 10% rule (don’t run longer, reps, or time more than 10% than what you did last time). Yes, I know this is bad especially considering an injury. Yes, I know 8 miles is […]

San Juan Island Half Marathon

Saturday, May 18th, 2019

What do you call the person who graduates last from med school? Finished with a time of 2:14. Again, goals of 1) Don’t die 2) Finish 3) Don’t walk were achieved. This was a miserable, miserable, beautiful run. 10/10 will never, ever, ever do again. I had heard this was a hilly run. We went […]
