Running/training regiment: Phoenix 10K was super fun! Happy with the finish (always fun to reflect on my PRs..for Phoenix 10k – 34:10 – Obviously years ago!
Now Less than 6 weeks to my goal PR ½ marathon road race; looking forward to training fast and hard…setting a new PR for this distance will take plenty of dedication and positive recoveries…the key is staying super healthy going in...i have to say this year has been very good – no ITB issues! After my ½ marathon in Scottsdale, I will be running my 4th marathon at PF Chang’s Rock and Roll Arizona –that one will be huge. That race beats me down physically and emotionally. I shall prepare passionately – after all, I am built for this… LDT!

It’s fall – Looking forward to cooler weather for my earlier morning trail & road runs…plus it’s nice to know I am part of an AE team ready to work with a local tribe and hopefully a few more tribes; feels great to know we will greatly assist with their efforts in providing much needed facilities to the community – DESIGN!

There are as many reasons for running as there are days in the year, years in my life. But mostly I run because I am an animal and a child, an artist and a saint. So, too, are you. Find your own play, your own self-renewing compulsion, and you will become the person you are meant to be. - George Sheehan
