2009 Space Coast Marathon Personal Race Report

The 2009 Space Coast Marathon was great, my third marathon this year (of a planned two). I had bib 472 and finished in 4:26:55 which is about 20 minutes better than my previous best (my first, Baltimore 2008) and just shy of an hour better than Baltimore this year (about 40 days prior) with a low grade fever and upper respiratory infection.[Read More]

Hockey: We won 5-0 (and a weekend recap)

We won 5 - 0, I got the game winning goal and an assist. Now I'm not really tired it will make for a long day tomorrow.

I left for the game right after we finished watching the NHL All Stars, I enjoyed the game. All in all it was a really hockey weekend. On Saturday we drove up to Hershey, PA for a Bears game (The Caps Farm team). We got in a little late and they were down 3 - 0 against the Senators.

In the end the Bears won 5 - 3, we hung out after the game for some autographs, talked to some of the players it was a nice day even if the drive home seemed a little long.

Slept in this morning (felt great) before doing some work around the house. @cdash and I pulled out the dish washer to insulate behind it, put new casters on an ottoman and tore up some defiled carpet and molding.

Now I have a two week break and a nice early 11:15 game (the latest possible slot) on a Monday.

In the end it was a good weekend but I'll pay for it in the morning. I think there may be a bit of Wii Lego Starwars in my future.

Hockey: We won 2-1

We got a goal in the first and second periods. The Kings scored with about 1:38 in the 3rd and pulled their goalie at 1:00. It was a bit exciting there at the end.

Hockey, Tied 3-3

Our team remains undefeated, for the first time since EVER. Our record is now 2-0-4. We knew that we were going to be down a some players and we had a substitute goalie which made for some excitement all around.

I was a bit tired and sore from the race on Saturday morning and we ended up with a lighter than expected turnout. Aside from the stamina issues I think it worked fairly well as a recovery exercise. A prophylactic dose of IB about an hour before the game and some hard skating seems to have loosened me up nicely.

I can still feel the race a bit in my legs, yesterday felt like I was riding big hills on my bike. Today feels like I rode some big hills on my bike a while ago.

Celtic Solstice Five Miler, tomorrow

In ~20 hours I will be racing the in Celtic Solstice Five Miler my wife will be there to cheer and my youngest sister may also be running.

Went up to the community gym last evening, I should do that more often. It isn't big or equipped with all the latest gear but it has more than enough for a good workout. Did about a mile warmup, got a good stretch, did another slow mile, stretched some more and walked home. As a dry run I tried the gortex biking booties as the ventilation in my shoes has been a little on the chilly side. The booties are OK, but they are C-'s 41/42 and I wear 45s, they didn't bother me and I noticed a decrease in chilly feet on my walk to and from the gym. says Baltimore will have a "Fitness Comfort Index of 2 (where 3-1: Uncomfortable)" Mostly Cloudy to Cloudy with predicted temperatures of 30F feels like 20F. It should be fun, except for the getting up early to drive up for the race.

Hockey: We won

We are now officially the "Rink Rats" we couldn't get the "Farging Ice Holes", I was also partial to pylons.

We won 2-1, nearly shocking. Next game is a nice early 11:00pm.

My foot didn't bother me and thankfully the Refs were a little late so I had time to stretch out on the ice. A little short on stamina but I haven't been on the ice for at least a month and I really slacked off on the running and other generally health things in Vegas and China.
