Running Adventures Episode 18 - A Nice Day to Run

My daughter and I catching a sunset at Sunset Cliffs in San Diego

I wish I could be bringing you a podcast from our trip to San Diego - but we didn't run while we were there! We did see several beautiful sunsets and lots of animals at the San Diego Zoo and the Wild Animal Park.

For this short Episode of RA, my daughter and I take you along on a 2 mile run in our neighborhood. No facts this time....but I have some for next time, so don't go away!

As always, music used on Running Adventures is from the Podsafe Music Network.

The music used during this show was by Tracy Jane Comer. The first piece was "Inside Passage" and the second one was "Rondo."

Have a great week everyone!

Things You See When Running

With all the miles I have logged, I have seen a lot of interesting things. In my own neighborhood, things don't change much. But I did find this mailbox kind of interesting. Is this for short postal workers? I thought it was funny.

Running has been going much better over the past week or so. I was pretty burned out from life in general, and any attempt at running showed a starting heart rate of about 92 bpm. Tonight my heartrate was 78 bpm before my run with my daughter. That is the lowest starting heart rate I have seen in awhile. I know it may not seem like much, but I am excited.

We ran our 2 miles by running 1 min and walking 1 min. We finished in about 25 minutes and had a great talk along the way. We are training for her first 10K late this fall. I am looking forward to the miles ahead!

I hope to get a podcast out sometime this weekend - probably a mini-adventure. Next weekend my daughter is coming with me on a trip to San Diego. We will definitely have a podcast on that trip.

Congratulations to all the folks who ran San Diego last weekend!! You guys were AWESOME!!!! Makes me want to sign up for a marathon before Disney next January....but I must resist. Things are going to get busy when I start classes again in the fall. There will be plenty of training going on to prepare for the "Dopey" without introducing another marathon. Still, it is tempting... July's Runner's World features marathon training for fall races by 14 of their editorial staff. Great article.

Run Strong everyone!
