I am married with 3 lovely children 22, 14, and 8 and a dog named Koda.  Love to run and be outside.  I believe that if you think you can do it and you work hard enough any thing is possible.   Life flashes by in the blink of an eye, enjoy it while it last and remember there is a lot more to life than running.

Had a really good run.  Met McKenzie, Kent, and Shawn at the hobble finish and drove up to the 3 mile mark for a warmup.  Then ran to course with the goal in mind to run at least 10 good marathon pace miles.  Ended up running great through mile 10 and then thinking I was done pick up the pace more and more as we got to the finish.  Ended up running the course in 1:30:39 faster than the race 2 weeks ago, I just ran a nice even pace and was able to speed up on the harder section of the course where I slowed down.  The thing I noticed this time was I would really push the uphill section and not fade at the top and recover fast on the downhill side which I couldn't do in the race.











10-6:31 a drink break 




My thought were to keep Mac in sight and Kent from passing me and I did both:)

nice run. and great splits! a good sign that you are continually improving if you ran faster in this workout than in your race 2 weeks ago.

Great job! You really are improving. That's good to be a great feeling.

Wow, nice job Josse. That sounds more like the Josse from last year, picking it up at the end and all.

Great last mile finish (as well as all the other miles in there). So awesome Josse. Wish I could have joined you but doing the 5 of 7 night thing (worked last night and tonight). You are on your way to that SGM PR!!! Yay!!!

Queen Josse, rounding into marathon shape, strong over the hills and able to recover, key to success.

Stay Kool, Knights be ware, the Queen is back, B of BS Rools out

What an awesome run Josse! You are so strong!!! What a confidence booster too to have that great of a training run!

From Karin on Sun, Sep 06, 2009 at 21:38:25 from

Great speed, Josse. For one thing , you probably didn't have to wait a half hour before starting after you had warmed up. And it didn't get as hot as it was two weeks ago. You are awesome.
