I'm a physical therapist at Oasis Physical Therapy in Pasco, WA. My priorities are family, school/career, then running.
Living in Tri-cities Washington (Pasco) and loving our experience here. We have lots of family and friends in Idaho and Utah as well, so hopefully racing in all 3 states will be common.
22m@6:59 superloop from hospital. Late morning... hot in the 70's. Ran with hydration vest... mistake... everything got hot. Next time I'll just plan my route with water fountains and pack the gels in my shorts. I wanted to do more quality today... but considering the last 2 days I'm happy I got the mileage in, no matter the form. I'm already behind on training due to mostly uncontrollable circumstances of sickness, baby, and painful ankle. Still optimistic and hopeful for a PR but I'll have do really do well these next 6 weeks. We'll see what's possible with a new baby here!
10.2m@7:05 w/ 2x100m strides at the end. Loop from home: Burns, Santa Fe rollers, Big Cross, canal, TRAC path. Right gluteus medius felt pretty sore from the trails on Saturday, but the ankle felt quite a bit better.
