5.1 mile run out on the levees. Clear, crisp (27*) morning. Felt good for as cold as it was. Trying to maintain some decent fitness for the Pleasanton Double.

9.7 mile run. Cold again. Felt good. Weight Training.

10.6 mile run out on the levees. Very cold going out against a sizable wind but fast return with the wind. Strong last mile like last week. Tough workouts make tough competitors. At least I hope so after today's run!
You are going to be ready for the Pleasanton Double Dec 22. It is hard to run with this cold weather and it is only December.Bob Anderson 12/8/13 7:11 pm

3.0 mile run. Can't get motivated to run any further in the cold.Mostly maintenance running last few days. 34* pales in comparison to what Bruce Gilbert ran in this morning. I feel like a whimp!!

10.6 mile run out on the levees. After about 4 miles of warming up really started to step up the pace. Quick return. Last mile I didn't even act my age (Meaning it was all out). Good confidence builder for the Double on December 22nd.

Cool 7.0 miles out on my beloved levees. Had the place to myself. Felt good. Must have been from watching the elite runners yesterday at the Turkey Trot. Pleasanton Double in 3 weeks.

JoAnn and I walked the San Jose Double Course this afternoon. Pretty fast looking overall but does have a challenge each lap of a slight incline. Otherwise pretty flat. Nice to know what to expect beforehand!!Bill Dunn 8/11/13 8:15 pm
Thanks Bill for some input...it's noted :-)

The final standings for the 2013 Short Course Road Racing Championships ( PAUSATF) were posted this afternoon and I ended up being 2nd place overall in the 60-69 division. That's 1 place better than I did last year. Was alot of fun. Glad I was able to stay healthy. Races are 1 mile to 10k. That gives me comped entry to this series of races again next year!!Bill Dunn 7/25/13 4:53 pm
Congrats Bill...who was first place?Bob Anderson 7/26/13 10:09 am
My friend Don Porteous. I beat him once this year but he beat me 3 times. He is really good at the short races but won't race me at the longer stuff.Bill Dunn 7/26/13 11:41 am reply to comment
Colleen DeReuck, Libby James and Christine Kennedy at Denver Double Road Race this Sunday. The Double Victory Cup will be a tough one to call !!!!Bill Dunn 7/19/13 2:50 pm
It is going to be a real race to see who is going to win the Double Victory Club...best age-graded time...good luck to all.Bob Anderson 7/21/13 4:37 am reply to comment

Just got back from a great week of camping down Santa Barbara way. Lots of running with hills, hiking and generally enjoying life.Bill Dunn 3/23/13 9:29 pm
I love "camping out" at the Fess Parker Double Tree Resort in Santa Barbara. It's tough but someone has to do it.Richard Stiller 3/24/13 7:40 am reply to comment
As a very frequent runner of the South Bay Levee System I see alot of flying objects, mostly in the form of birds such as Egrets, Blue Herons. Red Tail Hawks, Pelicans, Kites among others. Today was a bit different in a big way due to the takeoff of 4 F-22's as I was circling the backside of the runway. Very loud, fast and powerful!Bill Dunn 2/23/13 7:40 pm reply to comment
Bob, I don't see my name on the Double Road Race Lists on the Best Performances page.Bill Dunn 2/21/13 5:57 pm
I think you listed it as two races. It will show up if you combine the time and list it as the Double. You are the world record holder for 65-69...congrats!!!Bob Anderson 2/21/13 6:46 pm
You changed it to one race result shortly after I posted it as two. It is now in my race results as one race. 1:03:42Bill Dunn 2/22/13 7:49 am
That took care of it...Bob Anderson 2/22/13 11:03 am
Thanks Bob.Bill Dunn 2/22/13 3:31 pm reply to comment
Yesterday started off as any other day at work until I picked up a container of mail and got a bad twinge in my back. Couldn't reach down in front of me the rest of the day. The good news is this morning I was able to run 3 miles with no problems and today at work it has progressively gotten better. It just goes to show how easy it is to throw everything into disarray in a mere second. I think I got lucky on this occasion but the lesson is we can never be to careful!Bill Dunn 1/8/13 4:19 pm
I know this so well. One second everything is cool and the next...take it a little easy until it is 100%. This aging thing is always challenging...Bob Anderson 1/8/13 4:27 pm reply to comment
Ran the Moody Two Road Race this morning. This was a Bob Anderson/ Rich Stiller production and I must say it was a stellar event from top to bottom. Great course, scenic, fast and there was even a porta potty at the start!! Mile mark was easy to see, finish line was well managed. I'm ready for the 2nd Annual. Ran 11:49/5:54 pace for 3rd overall and a 87.04% age grading. What a way to finish the year. Thanks for making an old guy feel young again.Bill Dunn 12/29/12 10:53 am
Great run Bill!Richard Stiller 12/29/12 11:25 am reply to comment
Ran the Double Road Race this morning. Combined time: 1:03:42 (15k). 5:50 pace. 83.91% age graded.Hoped to run faster but conditions were tough (wind and rain). Enjoyed my 1st Double. Thanks Bob.Bill Dunn 12/23/12 5:40 pm
81st place overall.Bill Dunn 12/23/12 6:58 pm
Good Job Bill...it was great having you on my team.Bob Anderson 12/23/12 7:10 pm
Make that 6:50 pace. 5:50 pace would have been a few years back!!Bill Dunn 12/23/12 9:24 pm
I think I ran a 5:50 pace for 200 meters trying to move those cones around with Tom Warfel and Tom Knight.Richard Stiller 12/23/12 10:37 pm reply to comment
December 23rd is finally upon us. It's time for a runners morning latte: a 10k with alittle 5k mixed in to add some flavor. It's going to be a hot one (competition wise) so be careful until things cool down alittle!!!!! Best of luck everyone.Bill Dunn 12/22/12 9:23 pm reply to comment
Next Sunday morning I'll be stepping to the starting line ready to compete with the great Bill Rodgers for top honors in the 65-69 division of the Double Road Race. No way I could have imagined back in the 1979 Boston Marathon that I ran and Bill won in a P.R. 2:09 against Seko that 33 years later we would be going head to head. It wasn't even close between him and I then. I'm hoping it will be alot closer this time. What a long, strange trip it's been!Bill Dunn 12/16/12 1:05 pm
"What a long, strange trip it's been!" ... indeed. Any way it shakes out, two Bill's will be in contention for the AG placing, which seems fitting for a "double" road race. Best of luck to both of you (and all the other competitors).Gary Funck 12/17/12 8:42 pm
Bill and I have run together twice now. Once as a cooldown after the 50 plus race at Stanford in 1997 and the second time we did a run together across the Golden Gate Bridge ( his 1st ). The Bridge Run was most interesting as we didn't talk about running but about the Viet Nam War, me being a veteran and Bill serving in a Veterans Hospital . He was a great guy to talk with.Bill Dunn 12/17/12 9:50 pm
Is this a new sitcom?

The final results for the Silicon Valley Turkey Trot Thursday are up and my official time was 19:42 ( which is what I had on my watch ). I won the 65-69 age group and also was first in the Military/Veteran 41 and over division. 1st time I've ever won 2 awards in a single race. What a Thanksgiving Day!!!!!Bill Dunn 11/24/12 5:06 pm
Good going BillRichard Stiller 11/24/12 6:47 pm
Good time Bill...congrats on the Two wins...good seeing you! Bob Anderson 11/25/12 6:25 am reply to comment
Ran the PA-USA XC Championships / Western Regional XC Championships today. Seems to be a question as to the actual distance of this course today. For the regular PA Champs it's always been listed as 6.09 miles. For today's race the miles were marked and the 6 mile mark seemed more than .09 miles from the finish. Irene Herman, president of the PA said this race as a Western Regional was a prelude to the National Club XC Champs in 2015 which are always 10k. Last time we ran the National Championships at Golden Gate Park it was 10k. I ran a stong race today which I feel was better than the race we had on this course earlier this year which was 2 laps instead of 3. My pace then was 6:56 and if this race today was 10k the pace would have been 6:56 with an extra lap. Makes one wonder!!Bill Dunn 11/18/12 9:02 pm
Sounds like the distance was off...in any case...good job Bill!!!!Bob Anderson 11/18/12 10:10 pm
With XC course accuracy tends to fall off. Maybe the earlier course was off too. The key is how did you do versus the competition? How did you feel about your race? Sounds like you ran well. That's what counts.Richard Stiller 11/20/12 1:17 pm
You're absolutely right Rich. That's why I like XC. I was just making an observation. It was the strongest I've run all XC season and it came just at the right time. I'm hoping it carries over to a strong 5k Thursday!Bill Dunn 11/20/12 3:31 pm
You are running very well. Best of luck Thursdsy.Richard Stiller 11/20/12 10:19 pm reply to comment
