Still kicking

Just checking in to say I'm still kicking.
Not running much as I used to these days but I hope to change that soon.
I'm signed up for OMM again.  More on that in another post I guess.

Keith out.

Catching up with Keith.

I have received a polite reminder to update my blog.  So here is a summary of my running  from sept. 2015 onward.  
After the Month of MAF in Sept. I participated in a half marathon in Takayama, Gifu pref.  Starting at 1800m this race had an aggressive elevation profile. Almost 500m of gain/loss according my Garmin data! 
I met a friendly fellow in the first couple km.  We were beginning the long descent to the half way point. He advised me to remember that what goes down must come up. I had already decided on a modified Galloway protocol of 2 min. runs and 30 sec. walks except when going downhill I skipped the walk breaks.  When I reached the half way point I took a little break and then started back up hill. 
Although the second half was mostly up hill I wound up with a negitive split.  I counted over 50 "kills" from the half way point on.  Nothing like passing people. This was probably my slowest 1/2 ever but the views along the course made it one of my most enjoyable.  I pushed my pace up a bit in the last 2km wanting to impress my wife and daughters whom I expected to see waiting for me at the finish.  Didn't find them anywhere.  They were off eating lunch and hadn't expected me to be back so soon.

I wrote the names of 21 people in my life on my arm and dedicated one km to each of them.
