Happily married with a giggly one year-old. Half-Colombian engineer working as a contractor for the Navy. I didn't pick up running seriously until junior year at BYU. Now I live in Idaho, where I leave for work at 5am and don't get home until 5:40pm. I try to get a short run in during lunch time at work and then a little something else after work, but the weekends are where I try to make ground.

Bad weather prevented my lunch run, but I think it was good to take a break because of the mileage I put in this weekend.
Weather was still bad with hail warnings in the evening, so 5 miles on the treadmill.
Had a really great progression run this morning. Held it pretty steady and kept speeding up, when at first I thought I was going out too fast. 15 mile progression run. Didn't use any fuel during the run. Stayed under 7:40 after about mile 7 and then finished the last mile in 6:58. Did 7.22 miles easy for a weekly mileage topper in the PM.
