Easy 4 mile run. Left hip, piriformis, hamstring out of wack. Uncomfortable.
Already had a visit with one Rich.

Bill I just read about piriformis; wishing you the best, and hope you get through this quickly, and with a little discomfort as possible. Brad Chatfield 5/25/15 8:03 pm

After a visit to the chiropractor, did weight training and foam roller.

4 mile out and back. Heavy wind on the way out, cranked on the way back.

4.0 mile out and back with return 2 miles tempo. Starting to be more comfortable with the altitude.
Saturday, May 16th, 2015
Finally felt pretty decent. Ran 8 miles out and back with some life in the legs. Getting used to the 5300' altitude and picking up the mileage after a very low couple of weeks because of the move. Can't wait to come back December 12th for the USATF Club Cross Country Championships in GGP.

8 miles easy. Light wind and elevation gain on way out.
Bill, have you tried out that restaurant in town yet? I think it's called the Golden Spike Inn.Richard Stiller 5/14/15 2:02 pm

8.0 mile run on my new County Road 193 route. Freshly graded. Sunny, mild with some wind on return. First run after 3 days of inclement weather and no treadmill yet. Treadmill should be here tomorrow with the rest of my belongings.

First significant training run in two weeks. 8 mile out and back on dirt road with headwind on the return. Gently rolling. Felt decent considering the altitude and the fact I'm not quite used to it yet.

4 mile walk under a light drizzle. Had to move to Colorado to see some rain!

4.3 mile run out on my new County Road 193 running route. Dirt road with very little traffic and terrific views of Pike's Peak. Overcast today with wind on the way out. Cool. Felt O.K after not doing much running last week.
Wow, with Pike's Peak in the distance. I can remember hiking on the Pike Peak trails when I was a kid. Sounds like a good place to run...Bob Anderson 5/5/15 11:14 am
I remember running up in the mountains above Colorado Springs and looking out from a ridge trail towards Pikes Peak. It was September. A month later the first big winter storm hit the area. By then, I was back in a Sunny California. Richard Stiller 5/5/15 11:43 am

Well it has gotten to the point that my back, left leg problem is to uncomfortable to run on. So will just walk for a few weeks and see if things improve.Bill Dunn 5/25/15 9:26 am reply to comment
Wow! What an amazing experience I had in Colorado the last 10 days. Trained in Byers at 5300' on a dirt road out in the farmlands east of Denver. Had the place all to myself except for a few sheep, horses, cows and even llamas. Rolling course. I felt better than I thought I would the very first day and by the end was cranking out some quick workouts. Went up to my Brother's in Buena Vista( 8000') and did one run on flat roads and felt O.K. but didn't push. Great experience that I hope to do more often.Bill Dunn 9/15/14 9:00 pm reply to comment
In case anybody wonders where have been I am altitude training in Colorado at 5,300 feet. First day here did 10k in 52 minutes and by yesterday got the same course down to just over 49 and felt pretty good doing it. May have to run the San Juan Bautista double this next weekend. Be home tomorrow. Hill repeats 3 days ago did kick my ass!!!!Bill Dunn 9/14/14 4:48 pm
You have to run San Juan to see how the altitude training helped. Did you get my message. Welcome back to the bay area.Bob Anderson 9/15/14 8:33 am reply to comment
Monday mornings are my 3 mile walk mornings. How enjoyable it is just to stroll along and observe things as opposed to pushing one's self on a run. I love to run and train but my recovery walk on Monday's has become a much appreciated ritual.Bill Dunn 8/11/14 12:54 pm reply to comment
Good job today by everyone who ran the 2nd San Jose Double Road Race. First time I got to see the participants instead of being one. So many smiles on all the sunny faces. Hope all of you had a great time. See you in Pacific Grove in May!Bill Dunn 2/22/14 1:40 pm reply to comment
Up early to go work at the Double Road Race in San Jose. Yes all you 60 men, I'm only working today. Have a great time everybody. The weather is going to be perfect.Bill Dunn 2/22/14 4:54 am
See you out there Bill. Thanks so much for helping us out. Going to be a good Double! and Ujena 5k Mardi Gras Run and Kids Cup Mile!Bob Anderson 2/22/14 5:03 am reply to comment
I forgot to mention that Peter Mullin, at the young age of 63, came in second overall in the ChocoLoco 5k in a fantastic time of 17:58. Great job once again Peter.Bill Dunn 1/25/14 4:35 pm
Thanks Bill! Working on keeping my 2014 AG over 90 - need to build up a buffer before the summer races here in Houston! Peter Mullin 1/25/14 8:13 pm
Bill, I think I see your next career. PR Man for 60 plus runners. Gets some business cads printed up ;-)Richard Stiller 1/26/14 1:00 pm
I meant cards but PR types are cads...Richard Stiller 1/26/14 1:01 pm reply to comment
We had two Ujena Fit Club members win races outright this morning. David Nevitt won the Groovy Great Eight 8k race in a time of 30:24. Barry Sackett ran the University of Okoboji Winter Games 10k in a time of 38:44. Congratulations to both on a job well done.Bill Dunn 1/25/14 4:31 pm reply to comment
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
