Brutally cold this morning.  Met Tara at the LPT.  A little slower on the way out because of the frigid temperatures.  7:30's for me on the way back.  Tara threw down a 6:40 for the last mile and I had no desire to even attempt that pace.  Hamstring started to flare up on the way back.  Not an excuse, just documentation.

Was your phone frozen once you got in your car? My phone indicated it was too cold to work so I put it on the bare skin of my stomach and it felt warm in comparison. I haven't warmed up yet! Proof it was cold out there.😬

Sorry, that was a lame story. Good job today.

From Andy on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 at 14:14:06 from

My phone was frozen but it gave me a "Too Hot" warning which was really strange.

From Tara on Tue, Nov 18, 2014 at 16:14:05 from

Yeah, mine too actually.

WAY to conquer the elements! good job documenting! Keep on keepin' Andy!

Tara, nice last mile! :)

Sounds way too cold for me. I hope the hammy is feeling better.

From Tara on Thu, Nov 27, 2014 at 08:43:16 from

How's your hamstring doing?

From Tara on Fri, Jan 16, 2015 at 13:31:18 from

Break's over. Get back on already. Everyone else is doing it. Except Allie.

Hello Andy, It was great to see you a the Big Cottonwood. So tell me, were you at the expo on friday. When I was there I saw somebody that looked like you but that person was busy with someone in a sponsor/vendor booth. Was that you by any chance?

From Andy on Mon, Sep 14, 2015 at 11:31:28 from

Yes, that was probably me. I was talking about the course, pacing strategy, and selling course specific pacebands.

From Rhett on Mon, Sep 14, 2015 at 11:38:15 from

Hey Andy. So are you a race director now? Are you still running sub 3 marathons?

From Andy on Mon, Sep 14, 2015 at 11:51:21 from

Rhett: I'm not an RD. I make course specific pacebands and sell them at the Big Cottonwood expo. They are willing to work with me on the cost of the booth so it is the only expo I sell them.

As far as running goes, I am 30 pounds over by ideal racing weight so am nowhere near sub 3 shape. I paced 3:45 at BC this weekend and it was a struggle. It's kind of sad how far I have fallen but I am finding new ways to enjoy running.

You should come back to the blog.

From Kam on Thu, Nov 19, 2015 at 15:55:35 from

Yesterday marks the one year anniversary of your last blog entry. Happy running, Andy. Likely see you on thanksgiving?

From Glory in the long run on Tue, Nov 24, 2015 at 06:42:24 from

I'd love to see you too.

From Teena Marie on Sun, Jan 31, 2016 at 13:48:55 from

Thinking it's time you come back to the blog!!!!

2016 . . . What do you think? 2016 miles this year?

From Teena Marie on Sun, Feb 07, 2016 at 21:52:40 from

Come on, Andy! Your team won!!! It's an omen that you are to start posting again!!!! :-)

From Smooth on Sun, Feb 07, 2016 at 22:28:26 from

Hi Andy! Was good to see you for a quick second on the PRT on Halloween! Miss you here on the blog! :)
