Where does the time go?

Yikes!  It's been about four weeks since my last post.  Falling behind already.
I guess I'll get right to it to get caught up.  The last post I wrote was right before a 10 mile race I was running.  I was hoping for a PR.  My previous best time at the 10 mile distance was 1:31:00 from 2015.  Granted that was my only previous race at the distance, I wasn't exactly sure how it was going to go.  As luck would have it, it turned out to be a nice day and I was able to push hard consistently throughout the race.  I finished with a new PR of 1:19:21, about 12 minutes off of last year's time.  My goal was to run a 1:20:00 so I was very pleased with the results!
Here is a pic from the finish.  One of the better pics of me running, since I usually look like I am taking the last breath I'll ever take.
Here is a pic from the 5 miler a couple weeks earlier.  Looking a little rough in this one!
Shortly after the 10 miler, my buddy Mac and I headed to Vegas to see Iron Maiden play.  I'll leave you with some pics from that awesome weekend(that I am still recovering from)!

Thanks for checking out the blog.   The next one should be up in a couple days.  I'll write about the 1/2 marathon I ran this past weekend and get a little deeper into why I run.  Please feel free to leave comments, follow me on Twitter or friend me on Facebook if we aren't friends already.
