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.

PM: lunch runing and XT/Strength - run to gym from work and ran into one of the Quagff gals run down US 50 the other way - jogged with her about 3.5 miles and back to work.  Beautiful day - 60 deg. and sunny

Another hour and left for gym - elliptical into circuits (abs, lunges, PUs, rows) and back to elliptical/stairclimber (?) for 10 more minutes and onto TM for 2.5 miles in 20 minutes with 4xhill pushes - 8% @ 8mph really got some sweat going!

PM: Track Tuesday - 3x(4x400m @5k) w/ 30 sec. rest.  - 80,78,77,76, 76,76,76,75,  76,72,75,72

Cooldown and I'm very sore.  Good group - Fisher, Chase McQueen, and I ran together.  Barely hanging on to the last 2 reps.

AM: Series race starting at Mill Race Park.  Jogged from the house to the park down SR 11 - 3.7 miles - 28:30.

5k race - decent go at it a week after marathon and just digging in to some good training days.

5:43, 5:49, 6:08, 6:55 pace for partial.  Alone in second place behind Luke and 1 minute or so ahead of the 3rd place guys. 5k race - 18:23.  Always fun at these series races with all the friends and familiar faces.  Really makes it worth while to show up even when I'm not in tip top shape.

On aside note, I started tracking the calories again to get the weight back down.

Jogged home afterward - 6.2 miles - 49:28
