Nick, who was runner-up at Leadville back in 2008, finished&nbsp;just under 4 hours, which is&nbsp;pretty damn impressive given the heat and humidity. &nbsp;I enjoyed running and chatting with Nick for the first half of the race.&nbsp;</p> <p>Okies were&nbsp;well-represented as well, with Victor Brown coming in third in 4:10. &nbsp;Victor&#39;s extremely talented, and if he locks in his nutrition planning, he&#39;ll be tough to beat.</p> <p>Big thanks to James, Mike and Rush Running Co. for putting on&nbsp;such a top-notch event. And, of course, I want to praise all the volunteers and Hobbs State Park staff for their work and dedication.</p> Sat, 03 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Thu, Jun 01, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-01-2017.html <p>6 Miles in 46:30 and 2 Miles walking at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>10 Total Miles including 2 Miles commuting.</p> Thu, 01 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 31, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-31-2017.html <p>8 Miles in 64 mins followed by 1 Mile at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>11 Total Miles including 2 Miles commuting.</p> Wed, 31 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 30, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-30-2017.html <p>7 Miles walking at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>8 Total Miles including one-mile commute.</p> Tue, 30 May 2017 06:00:00 Mon, May 29, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-29-2017.html <p>8 Miles in 62 mins on TM.</p> <p>9 Total Miles including 1 Mile with Max at park.</p> Mon, 29 May 2017 06:00:00 Sun, May 28, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-28-2017.html <p>8 Miles on hotel TM in Atlanta; 4X.25 Mile Repeats and 2X.5 Mile Repeats at sub-6:00 pace (10-10.5 mph).</p> <p>12 Total Miles including 4 Miles walking, 2.5 of which along &quot;The Walking Dead Tour.&quot;</p> Sun, 28 May 2017 06:00:00 Fri, May 26, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-26-2017.html <p>13 Miles in 97 mins and 2 Miles at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>19&nbsp;Miles including 4&nbsp;Miles commuting/walking outside.</p> Fri, 26 May 2017 06:00:00 Thu, May 25, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-25-2017.html <p>9 Miles walking at 2.0 incline on TM.</p> <p>10 Total Miles including one-mile&nbsp;commute.</p> Thu, 25 May 2017 06:00:00 Wed, May 24, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-24-2017.html <p>AM: 10 Miles in 77 mins on TM.</p> <p>PM: 4 Miles in 31 mins on TM.</p> <p>Total: 17&nbsp;Miles including 2 Miles&nbsp;commuting and 1 Mile with Max.</p> Wed, 24 May 2017 06:00:00 Tue, May 23, 2017 http://wesley.fastrunningblog.com/blog-05-23-2017.html <p>7 Miles in 45 mins on TM; 3 at 6:40, 2 at 6:27, 1 at 6:15, and 1 at 5:52 - 5:27 range.</p> <p>8 Total Miles including one-mile commute.</p> Tue, 23 May 2017 06:00:00
