Kate and I did the Lost Dutchman Half Marathon in Apache Junction AZ this morning and had a great time. The weather was perfect, the sunrise was a amazing and the Volunteers were the best. I highly recommend this race to anyone.

Happy Valentines Baby! Its Rest week before the Lost Dutchman Half Marathon on Sunday 2-16-2014 and todays Run was an easy 30 minute rest run. Its also Valentines day.
Happy Valentines! Try to do whatever you did today everyday of the year.
Got a nice sunset run in going up and down the Dreamy Draw path to work some hills into the mix. Beautiful sunset and feeling good for long ride and run this weekend.
Today Roger swam 1800 yards in 18 sets of 100 yards each for his half ironman swim training. Coaches pre workout comments were – “Push the pace on these so they are slightly uncomfortable”. He did and they were. Roger also shows Garmin Connect and Training Peak websites and how those help him prepare for the Half Ironman in St George Utah in May 2014.
Today’s workout is a nice spin for 55 minutes on the stationary trainer. Roger explains how this is part of the larger picture training for the Half Ironman in St George Utah in May 2014. He also talks about heart rate training and how to get it setup correctly.
Today I ran a tempo workout which means after warming up I ran faster than I normally do.
Yesterday I was at The Humane Society of the United States – Arizona’s Lobby Day. It was organized by Kari Nienstedt the Arizona State Director of HSUS. My pals Joe Hernandez, Stacey Newlon, Christine Rose Weir, and a number of other new friends attended and talked with our state legislators.
My reps are Chad Campbell, Lela Alston, and Katie Hobbs and we talked with them about HB2242, HB2302, SB1036/HB2215, HB2022, and HB2020.
I made a video recap of what we did and how you can get involved. h/t Wes Novack
