Missoula Marathon signup

I've signed up for the Missoula Marathon. It will take place in Missoula, Montana on July 12th 2015. The training program I like to follow for marathons has me starting with a long run of 10 miles in March, 2015. It is good I have that much time because right now I could not go run 10 miles.

I've plotted a training course to get me to 10 in later November and then to improve speed from then till March.  It feels good to be signed up for another Marathon. My running seems to go better when I have a specific run in mind and a training schedule laid out.

After the run, we will be heading to Glacier National Park for a week long vacation!

3 mile campus run

Today I ran 3 miles around campus. The weather was great and it was a good run.

Random Runs 30 to 60 minutes

Over the past few weeks I have been doing a few runs a week with most of them being between 30 and 60 minutes in length. Some have been at the local state park (Below) but most have been around campus.

3 miles: all better

My back is fine again and I went on a run this morning. Good run overall no back pain. Was a bit humid compared to last few days but nothing compared to the south.

Thursday: 2.5 miles "the back"

Thursday I went 2.5 miles. I ran 1.25 before my back was hurting too much to keep running. I'm not exactly sure what happened. It could have been from any number (or all) things from the day before. I was throwing frisbee, kicking a soccer ball, swinging a bat, hauling boxes of rocks, moving 5 gallons jugs of water and moving stuff around the garage. I also may have just slept wrong.  Anyway, my back hurt and I took two days off.

3.5 miles: Morning campus run

Today I ran 3.5 miles around campus. It was great as the temperature was in the upper 50s or lower 60s and it felt cool because the humidity was low (relative to Franklin).

Edit: "Turns out" the humidity was not actually low; it just felt that way. The humidity is still at 91% as I make this edit.

3 mile campus run

This morning I did a three mile campus run. The campus is not that big but I am still finding some new views.
