Thursday, 7.1 miles around the lake. Total: 7 @ 45:30, (6:30). Splits: 6:05, 6:19, 6:21, 6:32, 6:40, 7:08 (hill), 6:22. Not a record but close.

Rest, rest, extensor tendonitis I think is finally gone, even lingering pain on top right big toe. I'm close to 100%, no injuries/pain, some tightness behind left knee, but no big deal.

Today, 11.7 miles, in Brewster at Grammie's on the Cape. Ran the Brew Run course (5.2M) twice plus warm-up, cool-down. About 35 minutes each circuit. Garmin sez 10 @ 1:07:00 (6:42), 11 @ 1:13:47 (6:42). Splits: 6:37, 6:37, 6:44, 6:44, 6:56, 6:23, 6:40, 6:46, 6:46, 6:43, 6:45. Pretty tough after 10K. Beautiful clear sunny day though.

Ugh, never say you're 100% pain free. It's like the girl in the horror movie answering the phone and saying "Well yes, come to think of it I am home alone!" Don't jinx it!

Still, nice run and good pace, you are definitely moving in the right direction.

Hey, my name is Tim, and I am a founding partner of a new site called It's a FREE online blogging community dedicated to the needs of triathletes, trail runners, marathoners, cyclists, ultra-runners, and anyone else who is dedicated to achieving the mental and physical excellence gained from participation in these sports.

Basically, we know that there are tons of blogs focused on individual endurance athletes, triathletes, cyclists, etc., and our hope is to bring them all together in one place. We provide you with a blog, hosting, image hosting, your own subdomain (, and support, all for FREE.

We are also able to import your existing blog into our system (for most blog services) - which we will do for you at no cost!

Plus, we'll even help you promote your blog, while opening you to a whole new audience of fellow athletes. We're even in the process of attempting to partner with companies that cater to your endurance sports needs. We hope to provide exclusive discounts and offers to our members through these partners, all without heaping a ton of spam on you.

So, check us out! What have you got to lose?

Tim Moore,

My name is Robert Key and I am a runner from Houston, Texas. I saw your blog listed when I was looking through the RBF directory. I am also 47, although I'd have to say your PR's a bit faster than mine. I have qualified for and run Boston 3 times, so I do wish you well on your attempt to BQ. I have a web site at that is inspirational stories for walkers, runners and athletes of all ages and abilities. A new feature I am adding to the site is a searchable/categorized blog database where people can find a blog of interest to them based on similar abilities, goals and interests. To my knowledge it will be the only one of its kind for runners on the internet. I would be honored if you would allow me to put a link to your blog on the site. Just click on "Link your running blog" under "Free Features" from the home page. If you want to learn more about my running background, just click on "Meet Robert" from the main menu , or to learn more about my involvement in the running community, click on "Faithful Soles in the news" in the left column under "Weekly Features". I also have a blog that I just started at, but most of my running information is on my web site. Thanks and continued good luck in your training.

Hi David,

I saw you are running with a Garmin. Did you now that you can upload your GPS trips to for free? This webpage draws a line in Google Earth and you have also speed, height and heartbeat graphs.

You can even put your trip into your own webpage! Check mine and see how it looks like

Keep running :)

No pain? Don't you feel uncomfortable without it?
