Paced a friend for her very first half-marathon. In fact, this is the longest she has ever run, having just started running last March. She really wanted to finish in two hours, but was afraid of trying, so I said I would run with her. Her garmin didn't work, which was just as well. I didn't want her looking at it. She ran well for the first 10 miles, then really felt the race the last three. It was a hilly course, and the steep hill at mile 11.5 was a grind. But, she did great, finishing in 1:54. 

Weather was 2* at the start. But, no wind so it really wasn't too bad.

Very cool for both of you....literally.

Way to be such a great friend!

Good job pacing your friend! N8r - I was just browsing through and saw you here. I knew you were fast, but had no idea you were that fast. Those PRs over there are very impressive. Way to keep at it all these years!

From Pron8r on Tue, Mar 12, 2013 at 17:53:58 from 67.177.34.108

Marc--Thanks. Just trying to keep swinging the bat. Main goal is to stay injury-free.

Tom--You asked where I've been. Fact is, I'm still running, but I continue to like my manual running log. There's just too many logs to keep track of--an app on my phone, online-apps, paper apps, etc. Since i'm not on my computer all the time, my manual log seems to work the best for me.

From Tom Slick on Wed, Apr 10, 2013 at 05:50:57 from 69.171.160.233

I understand, but I still like to hear what my good running friends are up to once in a while......so post up man!

1:40 pacer for the Striders HM. Finishing time was 1:39:35. Not a bad day for a race. As a pacer, I thought our first miles were a bit fast. Avg was supposed to be 7:38. Miles 3, 4, & 5 were 7:17, 7:18, 7:15. In fact, every mile through mile 8 was sub-7:38. Two problems with this--first, for those trying to hit 1:40, it can burn you out early on. I have always preached that you can't bank minutes in a race. Second--we really had to slow down the last 3 miles, running a 7:46 (ok, that one's not too bad), 7:53, and 8:27. So, I let it get away from me. Yeah, the finishing time is within 30 seconds of target time (where I like to be), but the last few miles had to be manipulated to hit it. I know better, and will be more disciplined next time.

A 12-mile training run out of Blacksmith Fork Canyon. Weather was cold and windy. Normally, no worries with the wind out of BSFC, but on this day, it was a headwind the entire run. Wanted to run about a 7:40, but the cold and wind wore me out and I could only manage a 7:58 pace overall. After the run, we all gathered at a friend's house (where the run ended) for eggs, bacon, pancakes, etc. Not a bad way to end a run. I am tired of the cold and wind. It is time for some warmer, sunnier weather.

Pacer (with Andy Browning) for 2:43 group at the Striders 30K. An absolutely beautiful day for a run, and some terrific people to run with. We hit each mile within about 3 seconds of target split time.

From Tom Slick on Mon, Mar 18, 2019 at 16:38:17 from 174.148.94.173

Yo BroPro - are you doing the 2019 Boston Marathon???

From Tom Slick on Thu, Aug 01, 2019 at 08:22:56 from 66.87.127.187

Sure was good to see you at the Des News 10 k on the 24th of July, 2019? Please excuse me for not recognizing you rite away, I think it was your well trimmed beard that threw me off!!!!!

From Tom Slick on Tue, Aug 13, 2019 at 15:28:36 from 174.148.1.248

Yo Pro, It sure was good to see ya at the Des News 10k, I only got to the finish line a few seconds before you!!! I guess I was just lucky since my beard is much heavier and less wind resistant than yours!
