Weekly Check in

This wasn't the week to hit 160 something which is to be expected.  I decided to run the Race to Robie Creek half marathon on Saturday.  I had an entry already but was planning on selling it to a friend for his daughter.  I had to go to packet pickup to give him my paperwork to transfer it into his name as well as get Michelle's packet.  Before heading over there I was getting adjusted at the chiropractor and mentioned I was headed that way.  He mentioned he needed to go over there to try and sell his.  I told him I would take it for him to save him the hassle which he appreciated.

I called everyone I knew that might be looking and didn't hear back from anyone.  I even offered it to my friend so he could run with his daughter but he passed on it. So, I am running.  I have been topping off my energy reserves with more food than usual and was at 172.0.  I'll get it next week. 

In the meantime, I am planning on improving my best time on Robie from back in 2010 when I ran 1:50 (which is still currently my 'race' PR)! Can't wait. 2,100 feet of gain by mile 8.5 and followed by 1,700 feet of loss in 4.6 miles. The first time I ran I hit the top in 1:17 and 0:33 to the bottom. Hoping for closer to a 1:10 / 0:28 split this time!


  1. Wow, that sounds like a pretty tricky race. Judging by your training I think you'll hit that split. Good luck!

    1. Thanks Cory! I haven't posted yet but I made the summit in 1:11 and 28 and change down! I was 80th out of 2400 runners. My wife did beat me to the top when I went back for her though which was cool (for her!) :D
