2nd 5k this month with my daughter lauren, she's just starting to do these races and I'm really proud of her pacing.. she starts out conservative and runs a steady negative split.. great base training for upcoming cross country events!

managed 3.5 slightly hilly slow miles today on my hamstring.. not sure if I'm going to be well enough to do the double 15k but fingers are crossed...

did Santa Cruz sprint tri and managed to jog/run the 5k with just a bit of hamstring tightness.. recovery plan well underway!
Kelly glad to hear this. Be sure to tape your hamstring for support. That works for me.Bob Anderson 8/10/15 12:25 pm

operation hamstring fix is taking place with me competing in Aquabike races instead of full tris--did Folsom Aquabike yesterday -- 800m swim, 24 mile bike, a great substitute for running

still dealing with a slightly sore soleus and hip but able to do a longer slow run to start to rebuild stamina for August races... beautiful day on the Campbell creek trail

first easy run coming off a soleus injury.. beautiful morning and happy to run even if it was very slow and easy. Happy fourth of july!

racing took a back seat to stress relieve and introspection this weekend-- two parents in hospital makes one think about life's gifts and being strong for others...
I hope your parents are all right. I've been through having both elderly parents in the hospital and it's very difficult. You are right to be thinking of the positive. Best wishesHeide Unger 5/25/15 7:49 pm

gorgeous, fairly hilly "10k" (bit long) with Brazen Racing at Coyote Hills open space.. note to self--more hills needed!
I just don't like hills. But you are so right. You have to train on hills to handle hills better in a race.Bob Anderson 1/26/15 8:49 am

First, thank you Bob for a very fun double 8k event in Palo Alto, hope it stays a regular on the schedule and that next year, I can participate healthy... note to self, when the Achilles barks, listen... luckily I didn't end up with a full blow tear, but rather a hamstring pull that will take less recovery time... Swimming anyone??kelly emo 7/20/15 10:48 am
It was great seeing you yesterday. I was wondering what happened and I am glad you backed off the second leg. AT issues are worse than hamstrings! Take it easy and I hope to see you in San Jose Aug 22.Bob Anderson 7/20/15 4:24 pm reply to comment
Found a new type of "double"--yesterday TBF racing had their annual TBF Tri for fun at 8:30am at Rancho Seco lake, but this year they added a "super sprint triathlon" starting at 8:00am which was only a 200 meter swim, 4 mile bike, 1 mile run. Three of us decided to try to do them both, it was crazy fun.. finished the super sprint in 25:19 and had about 10 minutes to get into a wetsuit and back down to the water for my 8:42 am wave to go for the Sprint tri (800 meter swim, 16mile bike, 3 mile run) fun experiment--Double Tri! -- definitely needed the wetsuit for the second swim however, to catch your breath :)kelly emo 5/31/15 12:35 pm reply to comment

Thank you Bob and Ujena team for a very fun year and great finishing race at Pleasanton. I think I've found my favorite Double distance--the 8k is amazing!kelly emo 12/21/14 6:45 pm reply to comment
Hi Ujena gang,
Turns out I'm going to have to miss the San Juan Bautista double for a very good reason.. my daughter and her cross country coach have asked me to the weekend run coordinator and run with the kids...and my daughter's happy to have me there, can't miss this for the next 4-5 Saturdays! Catch you all at Pleasantonkelly emo 9/14/14 6:00 pm
Wow, that sounds exciting. We will miss you in San Juan but will see you in Pleasanton.Bob Anderson 9/15/14 8:35 am reply to comment
Love the double road race.. I think you have a new huge fan.. looking forward to San Juan Bautista (have to miss SJ as I'm in Tahoe that weekend)!! Thank you Bob and the double team for putting on an A event!!kelly emo 5/12/14 8:44 am
Nice seeing you in PG Kelly...you are going to love San Juan Bautista...need to bring your daughters to race the Kids Cup...San Juan Bautista is where I got my 10K all-time PR...it was very magical being in that rural setting.Kat Powell 5/12/14 9:52 pm
It was great seeing you in PG. Glad you like the Double and we will be seeing you in San Juan Sept 20th if not before...Bob Anderson 5/13/14 5:12 pm reply to comment
It is official Kelly. You are our Ujena Fit Club first quarter leader. Congrats! You ran 19 races and you placed first in your age-group eight times the first three months of 2014. Way to go! You are an inspiration!!!!Bob Anderson 4/29/14 5:24 pm
Congrats Kelly!!! Way to rock it!!!!Kat Powell 4/29/14 6:08 pm
Thanks Bob, It's been a blast.. I'm very much looking forward to representing team fit club at the Pac Grove double next weekend!kelly emo 5/4/14 7:52 pm reply to comment
ran into some female health issues that derailed me a bit this weekend.. had to skip the Silicon Valley Sprint Tri in half moon bay due to anemia fatigue and problems with Reynauds syndrome just making it too painful to jump into the 55 degree ocean.. but running is always there for me.. did a nice 8 miler Sunday in the warm sun and another 2.5 today and thought about Boston, that's why we love to run!kelly emo 4/21/14 8:33 pm
That is so right...running is always there for US! and sometimes it is NOT bad to take it easy a bit.Bob Anderson 4/21/14 10:54 pm
Sorry about your Tri experience but glad you can still run...also thought about Boston...hope to see you in Pacific Grove.Kat Powell 4/25/14 1:34 pm reply to comment

Ran a age-graded world record 5k yesterday ... to bad it was only 2.15 miles ... lead runner cut the course and we all followed like lemmings ... Don't believe the times in the Valley Christian Race2educate :-)kelly emo 4/6/14 4:45 pm reply to comment
Finally found results for my Great race of Agoura Hills double on Saturday. Hilly half paved/half trail 10k started at 7:30 am then a nice paved 5k at 9:00 am, a perfect test run for the Pac grove double-- learned something however, nutrition really matters for a double.. I didn't eat enough and got shaky on the 5k and was outs sprinted for 3rd in age group, ended up 4th by 2 seconds...kelly emo 3/25/14 12:15 pm
I was wondering about those results. Wow, this gives you already 19 races for the year. You are holding on to first place in the rankings. Congrats!Bob Anderson 3/25/14 3:27 pm
yup, Julie and I have a great little competition going.. she's at 17 now and we often do the same races and support each other. but i'm going to slow down a bit this summer for triathlon season as I have a couple of key races I need to taper and focus on in June/July, so I'll need to cut back on "races as workouts" during that key time :-)kelly emo 3/25/14 6:39 pm reply to comment
another fun double weekend-- Zoom Quarry lakes 5k and Go Green Los Gatos 5k. Hit 23:16 on Saturday.. need to go under 23:00 before triathlon season, getting closer... going to keep working on turnover and drillskelly emo 3/17/14 1:39 pm
You can do it Kelly...be sure to do one speed workout a week. I even like finding a down hill course and running that hard. Helps with leg turn over.Bob Anderson 3/17/14 6:04 pm reply to comment
Thanks Bob, racing a bunch this winter to stay motivated during the wet season and to get ready for PG!
Bob Anderson 3/4/14 7:55 pm
Congrats Kelly...you are our women's leader. 12 races already. Congrats!!!!Bob Anderson 3/4/14 6:39 pm
Whoo hoo, just found I made the top 100.. had the most races of all women (63 in 2013) but need to work on speed as not too many performance points.. gotta train harder too :-)kelly emo 1/31/14 1:17 pm
You run a lot of races. Congrats on making the top 100 for 2013. I am glad you love races as much as I do.Bob Anderson 2/1/14 9:34 am reply to comment
