2014 Gazelle Sports/ G.R. Run Club Summer Run Camp

This Summer I got involved with Gazelle Sports Summer Run Camp. I went to a meeting and then volunteered to be a co-leader of the Wednesday night run. I shortly after saw an opening for a pace leader for the 8:30 Half Marathon Group. Well, that fit me perfect. And, I have enjoyed it very much. 

This is a 18 week camp, that gets ya ready for a Half or Full Marathon.

Team Blink Ride

We had a great time today riding the open country by Cannonsburg Ski Resort.

Tom and I met our fellow Blink team partner Chris and headed out for a 35-40 mile ride.

We all got our GPS and map set to go.

We had some laughs

And as Tom put it, a group selfie .

I did my first 50 mile ride with some other Blink Team Members earlier in June too:

5/3 Riverbank Run

The 2014 5/3 Riverbank Run was very interesting this year. I gave Don Kern a high five and a good luck pre race hello. I was recovering from a sore foot and less training miles than normal. The weather was perfect ! Sunny and 55 degree start.

I had a great start with the first few miles right on pace . I held on to a 8:03 pace through the half way point . then had a bad knee pain that slowed me down bad.
