On the heels of the "Met my goal" on the Hermes 5k, I am putting in some long runs with one day of tempo this week as the Cleveland Half Marathons looms. That race is May 18th..and after that..the schedule will make me feel like a one armed paper hanger... Edinboro on May 31st...The J.T. 55th Birthday Extravaganza Workout Celebration on June 17th.(Details to follow). The Maumee Bay Tri is June 22nd. I figure I will just do the sprint.. Mountaineer Morgantown Half Iron is June 29th. Devils Hill is just a very evil trick I have to negotiate twice. And the list goes on and on. Tuesday, I ran 1 hour and 40 minutes very early at North Chagrin. 37 degrees when I started running at 6am. My running thoughts...random as can be. here goes!!

MOUNTAIN MAN A man came to the Indians ballpark this past Monday who is a true inspiration. Sean Swarner. This man has survived terminal cancer...not once..but twice and he recently climbed Mount Everest. Truly an amazing person. I did not get a chance to meet him, but he threw out the first pitch Monday before the Yankees game. He is another one of those beacons of light that cast a glow about the darkness that can envelope all of us. Just wanted you to hear about him. LINK TO STORY
