Well, its late right now, 2155 to be specific in military time anyways. I haven’t blogged since 12 AUG 13, that’s almost two months ago. Now its not like I haven’t done anything since then. I’ve ran quite a few races, got quite a bit faster, even got second overall at a 40 mile ultra-marathon.
However, even with all the good news to blog about life has been smacking me in the face. I’ve been working like crazy, Army life has me up ready to workout at Physical Training (PT) at 0630, so if I want to get my 100 mile ultra-marathon training in I have to be up at 0430 to be on the road running at 0515 to make it workout with the Army at 0630. Normally, this hasn’t been an issue, but that’s because I was always getting off at the predictable time of 1700, but now it’s later.

The best looking day-to-day GPS on the market, I rarely take it off because it works just like a normal stop watch, just with GPS.
I’ve been using the RC3 GPS for over a month now and I’ve learn to love how simple it is. After a quick set up, you just wear it like a normal watch, when you want to run or track your workout you just hit start workout and it pulls GPS, and you start.
Polar tabs the RC3 GPS as “A Smarter All-in-one” GPS watch. Out on the trails it will give speed, distance, and altitude, all at the touch of a button.
Sorry I’m a bit late to answering this question, back on January 2nd this year (yea, a long time ago), an anonymous reader asked,
Do you plan to do Tough Mudder or similar courses? If so, will you please post how you’re training for them?
As of right now I don’t plan on running a Tough Mudder or other obstacle race at least for the rest of 2013, maybe in the future, but they just don’t intrigue me that much.
This is my 24th interview for my blog. I met Jenn awhile back on Twitter. She is a fellow Fitfluential Ambassador. She’s an athlete and lawyer that loves zero-drop shoes like me. She’s the writer behind Run It My Way, where she chronicles her journey as a marathoner, running coach, fitness addict, ultra-marathoner-in-training, and lover of nutrition & running gear. You can also find her on Twitter and Facebook.
She ran many 5k’s, 10k’s, and half marathons, 2 marathons and she’s registered for her first ultra this summer.
She runs in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, Canada Here’s Jenn:
I started today off just as any normal Sunday. I decided to go for a trail run with the local chapter of Team RWB. A few of us showed up and I already new two of the four other runners, John and Lynn are both members of a local cycling club, Team Roadkill. The other two gentlemen I have never met before.
We took off for about a four miler, I had already done a two mile warm up to get all of my six miles in for the morning. The run was fun, we walked a bit because Lynn’s legs were dead from our club’s 35 mile ride the day prior. We ended the run with about four miles and some change. Douglas (another invisible inspiration that I’ve now run with) took off at about the three mile mark to do just a couple of extra miles.
