I can tell my diet is doing wonders for my running.  I pushed it this morning, but not too hard, and this was the fastest I've ever ran this loop.  Not carrying around those extra 20 lbs. sure makes a difference. 

My friend Will from my Ragnar team gave me a new pair of shoes.  He said they hurt his feet and he was going to throw them away.  (Kind of like - Ewww, this tastes awful.  Try it.)  Just kidding.  So I wore them today.  They were okay, but a little tight around the toes.  The best thing about them is that they are flashy.  I bet they glow in the dark.  They matched my blue Ragnar shirt quite well.

Weight: 202.00

Ah-hah!!! I'm first!!

Have a great day Burt!

From Burt on Wed, Jan 28, 2009 at 11:47:52

Thanks Tina. I blogged my splits only because I was running late for work. (I should really drag myself out of bed when the alarm goes off.) Now there's more details. You have a good day, too, and get to feelin' better!

From Burt on Wed, Jan 28, 2009 at 11:48:13

I mean, Teena.

well done burt for doing a pb on a training run, I know its not like in a race, but it gives you a good buzz and shows your moving in the right direction.

From Eric Day on Wed, Jan 28, 2009 at 12:44:03

Great news Burt! Good workout.

Sounds like a sub 50 to me for this weekend!

From Burt on Wed, Jan 28, 2009 at 13:16:19

Thanks Sam and Eric (cool, I just got a comment from someone who lives in England followed by someone who lives in Mexico. I'm so international.) At this pace I could crack 48!

From Eric Day on Wed, Jan 28, 2009 at 17:53:20

Mr. International, I just got the official results of my sunday race. My brother did an awesome 45:46!!

From Burt on Wed, Jan 28, 2009 at 18:32:10

Geez! I'll bet he's so sore right now that he can barely walk.

From Eric Day on Wed, Jan 28, 2009 at 18:38:56

Did I mention he went swimming? After the race?

Now I staring to understand when I read that people are sometimes born with the running gene ... I guess I'm not one of them...

From Kelli on Thu, Jan 29, 2009 at 16:40:09

There is no running gene. It is all hard work, eating right, and sheer...what is the word??? Stupidity? Who wants to hurt like that, anyway??

All kidding aside, great pace BURT!!! If I could lose 20 pounds maybe I could be that fast...but then who would keep Kneaders in business?

From Marion on Fri, Jan 30, 2009 at 15:54:34

Congratulations on the speed PR!!! So these 21 I am working on will help with the speed? (Yes, the 25 is down to 21 now ;) Great work!!! :D

From Burt on Fri, Jan 30, 2009 at 16:05:09

Good for you, Marion! Yay!
