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

After 60+ races this year the body finally gave up.. one really cranky calf pull that won't heal... so I'm a swimmer for a while.. hopefully I'll be able to walk/jog the Disney Avengers half but looks like a few weeks off. time to work on the week triathlon leg-- the swim1

Did two races separated by one bridge-- Mt. Diablo 4 mile at 8 am then SF Giants 5k at 10:50 am.. great practice for the Double run in SJB... minus the traffic jam at Treasure Island :-)
I was at the Giants Race too...saw you placed again! Congrats!Sharon Fitzsimmons 9/8/14 10:00 pm

decided on an easy run to the farmer's market on creek trail recovery from the double 5k.. fun trying to find my long dormant sprint speed yesterday... enjoyed the double 5k but have to admit, I think the full double is the best (15k)...glad the hamstrings held up on the second 2k :-)
Nice seeing you on Saturday. Congrats on your second place 40-49. How did you like the Double 5k?Bob Anderson 8/25/14 5:11 pm
I liked the two sprints... very fun to try to get speed going. the wait felt really long as I've only done the regular double prior, but it did allow for basically a full recoverykelly emo 8/25/14 8:59 pm

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
