Finally catching up on my log entries after a nudge from Tom Slick. Thanks Tom!

I've only been running a little. It's just been hot and I've seemed to had my concentration on other things. I've qualified for Boston 2020 (as well as Callie, my daughter). We're both very excited to do this as it's been our goal for about 5 years. I've also qualified for Las Vegas World Series Team Roping Finals in three catagories. Very excited for that as there is a lot of money to be won there.

I will start my real training cycle at the beginning of September for a couple of  fall/winter races, before I get serious about training for Boston!

Here's todays run...

Callie and I are running a 5K this coming weekend. I'm afraid she will leave me behind as her training is strong right now and mine is pitiful. :-)

We're in Illinois with family. Callie is here and found us a 5K to run today. Although I'm not really in shape to run a 5K I think I did okay in this race. It was a fairly big 5K that has been run in Shelbyville for the last 20 years or so. Lots of fast runners, running clubs and school age runners. Callie and I ran together. She won 3rd in her age group (I think I held her back) and I won 2nd in the old man 50-59 age devision. I'm not looking forward to moving into the 60+ age group next year. :-(

(This race was almost completly under trees. My GPS lost signal several times for short distances so the actual paces were a little faster for miles. But the course was measured and certified so the overall is correct.)
