400m/800m competitively in track in high school.  Took 15 years off. Started running again in 2010.  Married to my beautiful wife, Tiffany, with 2 little boys, now 4 and 6.  I'm a civil engineer working for the Indiana DOT in Seymour, IN.   I live in a slightly larger town about 20 miles north - Columbus, IN.  Originally from Lexington, KY.

Anytime Fit. PM treadmill run - 8 mi. @ 8mph most of the way.  mile 6 @ MP, which equates to 9.2mph for me, and 0.25mi. @ 10k (~10mph) ?? The 10k-vs.-MP paces don't seem comparable?

8 mi. total - 59:40

~30 min. of strength stuff after run:

lunges with weights, squat press with light weight on machine, some ab stuff, some hip reps, mostly legs and core, you get the idea.

While working out, I am reminded of why the gym is not for me - some random dude I don't know has been eying me the whole time (prolly cause of my short shorts) while running and going through my light strengthening work.  Then I'm in the middle of a set of abs on the floor next to a machine I have just hopped off of, and he struts up and loudly says, "you mind if a work in a cycle?"  I'm like, "Sure, I'm done, pant, pant (in between situps)"  -- HE then rips the weight assist bar out that I had been using and loads on some weight to resist - clearly for much "stronger men", very loudly grunts out about 5 reps and slams the weight down and struts off...

wow - he showed me. :)

Ha - gotta love those meatheads. Seems like they spend a lot of time looking in the mirror inbetween weights too.
