just regular running and stuff


Sunday, pretty day, but whew! Joseph and I were both worn out from the long day on Saturday when I was up from 5AM until 2PM Sunday morn. Then got up at 7AM.  We ran in the afternoon at 3PM, but only did a 6 mile loop today because neither of us had the energy to do more! Punk slackers. We did the crazy hilly University Estates loop to make up for it though. Pretty slow today!

Monday, no run, both busy. But, I did get some yard work and gardening in, plus some pushup type deals.

Tuesday was better, Joseph and I ran 6 miles with Lucas “cool daddy” Muniz on the South Farm. Have not been running out here much lately. Lots of MSU runners out there today including the likes of Renee “the  beast” Masterson. Good run. Had not seen Lucas in a couple of weeks, so we had plenty of catching up to do. He and Kamau ran on some trails at the Noxubee National Wildlife Refuge on Sunday, and he was giving us the scoop on the wildlife that he spotted. Apparently, they came across a huge alligator crossing the trail at one point! That will wake you up. After the run we were goofing around a bit with some pullups. I said I had been trying to do a one-armed pullup, but had not yet got there. So, I tried today, and did one! How cool is that. Not the kind with the other hand holding onto the wrist, those are easy, but the actual one-armed one. I almost got two. That was with the right arm. Now to work on the left.

Wednesday, Joseph and I ran the Longmeadow loop several times. Along the way, we picked the pace up here and there for a loose fartlek type session. We saw the Starkville junior high distance runners jogging through the neighborhood as well. Got lucky with the weather, as it had rained all day. Temperature dropped quite a bit, but we still ran shirtless. Breezy but probably in the upper 50’s.

Thursday, close to 6 miles at 3:45 PM with Captain America Brent Wallace. It was a beautiful afternoon as we drifted about the MSU campus and streets of the Cotton District. Did not push it hard today after the semi fast running the day before. Brent seemed happy with that as he has not had the opportunity to run as much lately!

No run Friday. Usually take Fridays off if I am going to take a day off. Needed it today. My right hip (IT band?) has been sore this week. I actually think its from sitting at my office desk too much the last couple of weeks. I have two monitors, and the angle that I sit and type at is slightly awkward. My upper body is pointed to the right and my legs to the left. Need to remedy that. Of course, it could also be just me being an old punk! I do tend to have more problems with my right leg due to its being somewhat shorter than the other. I should probably wear some sort of orthotic to correct that, but generally don’t. Since it was sore, I decided to put a cushioned type lift in my right shoe for the run on Thursday and all day today. I have to say, it made a big difference. Go figure.

Got up early Saturday morn-4 AM. Too early. Ate a banana and cereal bar after doing a few pushups. At 5:30, Joseph got up as well, and we headed out at 6:15 to go run with the Boardtown Running group, which starts at Mike and Marcie White’s house every Saturday morning at about 6:30 AM.  This was a gorgeous morning to run, just over 60°F .  Beautiful. I managed to wrangle some of our running buds to join us. Lucas, Brent, and Jorge Villarreal all showed up for the almost 11 mile route. Additionally, former MSU distance running standout Simone Domigue ran with us the entire way and was great company! The run was very relaxed for the most part, and the only times I felt like I was pushing it at all were on a couple of the hills on the South Farm. But, mostly it was a nice, easy run today, probably just under 7 minute mile pace. Periodically, Joseph, Lucas, and Jorge picked it up. Jorge actually turned around at 4 miles for an 8 mile total, and Brent opted for about 6.5 miles. Had not seen Jorge in a WHILE! He had quite a few injury issues while on the MSU team and finally decided he would be better off not running college track and XC. Probably the right decision for him; at least, he seemed to be healed up and was running well today. Apparently, today was a good day to show up, as it was picture day! We had not been there in quite a while, but somehow managed to make it on the day of a group picture! Crazy. Met several new folks today, and of course, it was nice to see the regulars who we had not seen in a while too!

Thought about running the Cornerstone 5k yesterday in Louisville Saturday morning, but decided not to for a couple of reasons. One, already done more races this year than the last 3 years combined (or close to it), and secondly, this race, and others as of late, only gives an overall award to the first female and male. Depending on the year and how I feel, I could actually potentially win this race some years, as typically no super fast guys show up, but I think its a bad idea when races don’t have age group awards. It does not bother me so much, but that is the motivation and reason many active runners go to these races. They want to compare themselves to their similarly aged peers. Anyway. Did not go. Local awesome runner Meggan Franks has won this race previously, but she was in Canada this weekend for the Canadian National Half Marathon Championship!! However, Tiffany Dudley, another ridiculously awesome runner from Starkville did run the 5k and won with her time of 18:01! Crazy. She will be running in the Coke Classic next weekend, and I believe Meggan will be there as well! Showdown for these two speedy chics who both ran for MSU! Joseph and I were thinking about doing the Corinth race, but decided not too. We are planning on running in the Gumtree in Tupelo 10k the following week.

Old Cotton Mill 5k 2013


Monday- What the heck? Hot today! Crazy. After a warm up jog, did 3 X 1 mile repeats with Joseph today at the Research Park loop. Nothing crazy. I averaged right around 6 minutes per mile, Joseph was faster. We were both tired from the last couple of days.

Tuesday- Ran with Joseph, Brent, and Zach today. Pretty easy today, not sure how far, but about 37 minutes total. Along the way we ran through the Old Cotton Mill 5k route, which starts on University drive and meanders through the MSU campus before returning. This  course  is fairly difficult.

Wednesday- Fairly late start today. Joseph and I did 8 X 400m runs with 30 second rests on our trail. Still sort of muddy, and this section of the trail is fairly hilly. Today, the plan was to do the 400’s at 5k pace. I think were both on top of that, so good enough.

Our little buddy Kate Mattox was on WCBI News this evening. They interviewed her as athlete of the week. She is currently ranked no. 1 in the country in the 3200m and 2 miles distances for all 8th graders that have posted times on Milesplit.com. Kate has been running well and is clearly the fastest girl in Mississippi right now in the 3200m distance (11:01). She is also doing quite well at the 1600m distance as well (5:24). Currently, we have several very fast 8th-10th grade girls in the state, at least 3 of which have run two miles in 11:15 or faster! Way to go. Check out the interview here: http://www.wcbi.com/wordpress/run-kate-run-starkvilles-2-mile-champion

Thursday- Ran 5.5 miles with Joseph on the South Farm at 4:30 pm. Nice day, breezy, but warm. Easy pace of about 7:10 per mile. As we finished we saw the dynamic duo of Chad Anderson (mad dog drummer art dude) and Albert (Bert)Hart (trippy art dude/design dude) beginning their run.

Friday- no run today, took it easy and ate some awesome grilled ribeye, with grilled mushrooms and red peppers, and french fries!

Saturday- Woke up at 5:00 AM, ate a breakfast bar, then at 6, ate a banana! Headed out for the Old Cotton Mill 5k at around 7 AM. Chilly this morn. Thursday afternoon it was mid 80’s, this morning was upper 30’s! But, not windy. By race time it was mid 40’s, so we wore shorts and short sleeves. Awesome. Saw a bunch of people we know of course. A bit surprised to see our running bud Brent Wallace there, we thought he was going to do the Warrior Dash, but cool. Superstar Meggan Franks was there, as were many of Starkville’s regular runners such as Peter Rabideau, Meg Henderson, and others. Some of my former high school classmates ran today including the likes of Jeanne Butler, Steve Porter, and Eric Miller. Both Chad and Bert were here for the race. Quite a few high schools kids that have run with us before were also in the race. Some of them were Patrick Bell, Layton Little, and Lake Spradling. Long time friend Andrew Rendon ran the race today. First time I had seen him do one!

Run went pretty well. Joseph won overall with a 17:18. Not terrible, relatively hard course. He was pretty fast at the mile, then coasted until the finish. He also won this race last year.

I ran with Meggan Franks til the mile, which we hit around 5:34, then I slowed down as we started hitting the hilly part of the course. Meggan ran a 18:00 and  was the first overall female.

I was the next finisher at 18:46 or so, and being the 2nd male overall, obviously won my 45-49 year old age group today. Felt comfortable the entire way. Maybe I am getting old, but I can’t seem to find the gumption to push myself in a race anymore. Just slog along at a pace that feels comfortable. 14 year old Lake Spradling did pretty well today, somewhere in the mid 19’s. Brent was right around 19:40 and also won his age group. Terrance Owens (from Tupelo), my main competition in my age group, placed second in our age group finishing just under 20 minutes! Winning an age group award often means winning yet another fairly meaningless trophy or medallion, but not in this race, which is a part of the Cotton District Arts Festival. All awards are awesome cool pottery pieces done by MSU Art professor Rober Long. So, yeah, $25 race fee and win a $65 piece of pottery for 1st place in age group. Seriously cool. He does a different design each year. Full race results are at http://www.stearnsracetiming.com/Results/2013/4-20%20cotton/overall.txt

Good race, great awards, refreshments, and a day full of art and music! For me, I left the race awards and headed to the Juried Arts Competition Awards where I had 3 pieces accepted this year. I ended up winning Best of Show in that show ($750!). Also sold another piece, Mayan Awakening! So, good day there. Then I went over and listened to Joseph sing in the SHS choir. Full day for sure!

Back to our run on Sunday afternoon, and will once again meet at 3 pm at the South Farm parking area for a run.

Virginia Beach and Spring Into Action 5K & Fun Run


Headed to Virginia Beach Sunday morn for a conference on Imported Fire Ants and other Invasive ants. Traveled all day, collected some ants along the way. Finally arrived Monday afternoon around 4 pm. After registering for the meeting, I got a chance to get in a run on the boardwalk along the beach! Awesome weather too. Windy, but about 65-70°. First, jogged a half mile, then ran the 3 mile boardwalk pretty fast against the wind, then ran back faster, then jogged for a half mile. Felt really good today. Had to dodge 500 bikers and skaters and runners and walkers, but it was pretty cool.

Tuesday, easy run today-50 minutes along the boardwalk and through town a bit. Beautiful. 80° at 4 pm when I ran. Lots of cool statuary along the boardwalk and between the hotels. The highlight was an enormous statue of King Neptune.

If I had chosen to run earlier in the day, the boardwalk was much less crowded. Of course, I was in Virginia for a conference on invasive ants, so I was sitting inside listening to talks about ants earlier in the day.

Did not get to run Wednesday because after we left the conference, it was all driving until midnight or so! Thanks to David Cross who was the one driving at night. The next day we got back to Starkville at about 2 PM after driving through what might have been the edge of a tornadic storm system in western Alabama. Crazy stuff! Needless to say, the weather was too bad to run that afternoon. I did get to do some pushups and stuff when I got home though, so not all was lost. I never eat like I should when traveling. Too much sugar and caffeine to add in the driving/staying awake deal. No exception this week. Probably take a week to recover!!

No run Friday either. Had to get some art ready for the West Point Art Walk coming up the next day, and following that I attended the reception for the artists involved.

Saturday, I was at the West Point Art Walk from 10 Am until 3 PM. I had artwork in the office of Gallaway, Chandler, McKinny and Insurance. The Art Walk was great! Met lots of cool folks and other artists. Read more about it on my art blog if you are interested: http://joemacgown.blogspot.com/.

After the Art Walk, there was a 5k race being held in downtown West Point at 5:30 PM called the Sally Kate Winters Family Services 5K (also called the Spring into Action 5k and fun run) . There was also a 1 mile fun run for kids at 5 PM.  This race was for a great cause, helping abused children and other kids in need. All proceeds from the race directly go to benefiting child abuse victims and prevention awareness programs offered from Sally Kate Winters Family Services, Emergency Children’s Shelter in West Point, MS. At some point in the day, Joseph showed up to check out the art. Since we were both there, we decided to run the 5K.

Tim Irvine, an awesome running joker from Meridian did the timing for the race, so we knew that would be done well. If you need his timing services, he has a page on Facebook that talks more about it at https://www.facebook.com/time2runracetiming. I highly recommend him.  Sometimes with these smaller races you never know how things will go with timing, routes, etc., but I have to say, this race was amazingly well done from A to B. The only thing that they could not control was the weather, which turned out great too, although it was very warm! Even the mile fun run was awesome. Lots of kids ran this, and many parents joined them to! As we milled about the start for the 5k, we met some nice folks. One of those was Dustin Ormond, who works at MSU. Judging by his racing flats, we figured he was going to be pretty decent. Several other people that we did not know looked very fit as well. There was a triathlon dude who graduated from Starkville High a few years back who was in awesome shape. He was running this race with a friend. We even met several runners who had already run the Amory Railroad Festival 5k earlier in the day! Met another fellow my age (48 years old), Wallace Sansing, from Maben, MS who did quite well today.

Anyway, the race started right on time and we took off through residential areas of West Point. A police car lead the way for a bit over two miles before we turned onto a walking path sidewalk deal, which lead to the finish chute. Every intersection was manned by police. Volunteers were along the way cheering us on. Even the folks at their homes were out in the yard cheering us on. Amazing. The race was actually harder than I thought. Of course, I thought it would be somewhat hard because I had done a lot of driving all week going to and from Virginia Beach, not sleeping much, eating the typical food and caffeinated cold drinks commonly associated with driving, and not enough water. Of course, today, I was standing all day for the Arts Walk. By mid afternoon I was wiped out. Joseph seemed to feel much the same way after spending much of his week staying up late working on his junior English Thesis project. We both felt dehydrated and worn out before the race even started. So, yeah, things were not optimal to begin with. The first two miles of the race were on the road in the sun. First mile was pretty easy, but the second mile was harder with wavy hills. At the first mile split Joseph was first, pretty fast, probably around 5:10, and Dustin Ormand was fairly close behind. I was about 5:29. We all dropped off on that next mile. I felt completely dehydrated and dry mouthed by about 1.5 miles. Joseph told me later he felt the same. Actually, Dustin also said he was felt dehydrated as well. I guess none of us were really ready to run today! Joseph said he was 10:43ish at the 2 mile. I was about a minute back by then. The last mile on the walking path would have been pretty easy, but an added difficulty factor was thrown in. Much of the sidewalk was super curvy and had trees growing out of the center in places that you had to run around. So, basically, you had to slow down and speed up continuously. But, that section was shady!! Anyway, Joseph won with a time of 17:10, Dustin was 18:22, and I was 18:35. We talked to Dustin later, and figured out that I had actually given him and his family a tour of our Entomology museum a while back. Cool. At 29 years old, he is getting back into running. Apparently he was quite fast in high school. He said his best high school time was 15:36! So, yeah. Nice.

Almost immediately after the race, Joseph and I were both interviewed by WCBI television. Of course, we were tired and not  coherent, but that’s cool. They aired that later in the evening. The WCBI writeup and video are available online at: http://www.wcbi.com/wordpress/sally-kate-winters-host-5k-run-in-west-point. Our last name was spelled wrong in the article. 

Top three girls were Jamie Murrell (23:12), Peyton Hunt (24:40), and Katherine Ernst (25:22). Don’t know any of these girls.

In lieu of trophies for awards, they gave out various gift certificates. Joseph got some kind of massage deal, which he gave away. I got a $50 gift certificate for a restaurant called the Ritz in downtown West Point. Even the age group awards were cool gift certificates. Not to be outdone, kids in the fun run received a variety of cool toys, sports equipment and gift certificates. Very cool!!

Anyway, this was a GREAT 5k. Started right on time, cost was reasonable-$25, the route was never in question, the route appeared to be fairly accurate, the timing was done well, awards were great, top three awards and age group awards were given, the volunteers were great, and the police did a wonderful job! And, they told me that all entry fees would go directly to the local charity. Nice work to the folks that did this race. They covered everything in my opinion.

But, wait, the day in West Point was not yet over. The sweet sounding bluegrass band Hanalena performed at a local school. As an artist in the Art Walk, I received free tickets to this, so we hung around and listened to some great music! The two main girls in the group, Hana and Caroline Melby, are from Starkville. Now, they are nationally known recording stars!  They, along with the other musicians in the band are great musicians. After the show, I bought their newest CD. Everybody signed it. Already listened to it twice!

Woke up Sunday morning to more rain!! So, we did a core/upper body workout to start the day. During a break in the rain, I planted some vegetables that I had going in my cold frame. Transferred them to my raised beds that I recently started. Later in the day at 3 pm, got in a nice 10.4 mile run with Joseph and Zack Marsh, who recently joined our Starkville Striders Facebook page. Zack is a crazy red-haired, red-bearded freshman joker at MSU. He ran in high school in Huntsville, AL. We all just ran together today and finished up in about 1:08. Zach actually needed a bit more, so he ran another mile and a half or so, although he said he was going to slow it down. Steve Shaffer also stopped by today. He has had a sore hip as of late, which he thinks may be a result of too much running on the crappy Starkville High track (painted concrete). If there was ever a track made that was likely to cause injury, its this one! But, you can’t hold Steve down. Can’t run? Walk, and so he did! Keep moving baby!!

The Biggest Loser Race, Jackson, MS


Monday, whew, me and the kid did a workout out in Sessums. Today was a fun one: 200m hard, 200m easy, 200m hard, 200 easy, 800m hard, 400m easy, then repeat 3 more times. Of course, warmup and cool down jogs. I think we were both tired from Saturday’s workout, because we were not really on top of this one. Anyway, my 200’s were 37-39 and my 800’s were 2:46-2:51. Obviously, Joseph was ahead of me, but only slightly today. I have seen him do the 800’s between 2:18 and 2:22, but today they were all over 2:30. Anyway. Still a pretty good workout with the jogs between everything.

Tuesday, had an awesome 45 minute run with Lucas Muniz, Ian Prester, and Kamau Bostic. Joseph could not make it due to some afterschool work this week. We ran through campus, and after the first mile, picked it up pretty good. The last three were by far our fastest. Nice afternoon and no need for shirts today. I was the odd man out, being 48 years old, 5’9″, and 170 lbs. The other three are all 19 or 20, 6’2″ to 6’3″ and 150 lbs more or less. Great run. Thanks guys!

Wednesday, rained all day. Cold and wet. Ended up running in the rain on the South Farm with Audrey Sheridan. She has had some crazy injuries, mostly related to horses falling on her, so sometimes running is difficult. She wore an ankle/foot brace today. This was the first day for her to run in  a while, so we took it easy, maybe 3.5 miles total, with some walking here and there. Worked a lot on breathing today.

Thursday, rained all day again. Picked up Joseph from school at 4:30 and skipped the run. Too messy. We did an upperbody workout instead. Not bad. Then had a remarkable dinner consisting of baked salmon, jasmine rice, stirfried eggplant, peppers, and zuchini! Youch! That was good!

Friday, headed to Jackson, MS late in the afternoon for the Biggest Loser 5k the next morning! Picked up our packets late after at the Jackson Convention Center. Met lots of cool motivational folks there including a couple of celebrity contestants from the Biggest Loser tv show, Gina McDonald and Patrick House. Both of these jokers originally hail from Vicksburg, MS! How cool is that, right? Gina was a major player on season 14, and Patrick actually won season 10. The weight that they lost and have kept off is truly remarkable!

This race had great support from some Mississippi groups that have dedicated themselves to making people more fit. Kudos to them! Some of these groups included Rebecca Turner’s Runner’s Fuel Group (http://runners-fuel.com/), the Black Girls Run (www.blackgirlsrun.com) group represented by Venecca Mason, D1 Sports Training expert Mike Espy (D1Jackson.com), liveRIGHTnowonline.com with Terry, and of course Rod’s Racers (http://www.rodsracers.net/)! Crazy enthusiastic Jewel Parelman who works as the director of new business development for the Biggest Loser RunWalk Series (biggestloser.com/runwalk) was there leading people in stretching and other activities. That girl has some energy!

We also met some wonderful runners while we were there. One of my favorites was the amazingly nice and ridiculously young looking Nettye Johnson. Not only does she run, she also blogs about her experiences with running and faith (myfaithmyfitness.com).

Race morning. Awesome weather, mid 50’s, sun coming up, and lots of very happy people. The people running this race knew what they were doing. Tons of police cars to block traffic and lead the runners, cones lining the entire 5k and half marathon, and just a great atmosphere. Both races started at the same time, and at 7:35, we headed off. Joseph and I opted for the 5k today, since we have geared more of our running toward that goal, but lots of runners were in the half. At the starting line, we met Henry Cooper,  a very nice young man who had recently starting running. Big guy, but doing well. He actually finished the 5k strong at 23:39! Dude.

Also at the starting line were some friends that we have run with at the Boardtown Running Club in Starkville, Kelly White, Mina Tahai, and Tanner Mixon! Just looking around, I figured that for sure Kelly and Mina would probably be 1 and 2 in the women’s half marathon and that Kelly would likely even be the first finisher. Guess what? Yep, that was exactly how it came down! Kelly still lives in Starkville, where she is a nutritionist, and Mina and her boyfriend Tanner are now in Jackson, but are from Starkville. Kelly ended up running the rather hilly half in 1:30:26, which is slow for her, but easily good enough to be the overall winner! Mina ended up being the 2nd female with her time of 1:41:18, barely edging out her training partner Erin Pierce, who also used to live in Starkville and also ran with the Boardtown Running Club!!!

Oh yeah, 5k. Um, that went well too. Nice course, pylons along the entire way, only a couple of turns where I was a bit unclear, but not bad. I never felt threatened by traffic at any time either! Wonderful job to the Jackson Police officers! Like the half marathon, I thought I knew who would win the 5k today, and looking about, I was pretty sure it would be Joseph, and I figured I might be able to pull off second. Prediction number two, also correct. Joseph took off, and had nobody to push him at all. He ended up running 17:01, and I don’t think he was really winded. I took 2nd with an 18:14. Also felt really good after. Think I can break 18 now. Fingers crossed! Next time? Anyway, we got our picture taken with past Biggest Loser Dan Evans, who is now a famous Nashville singer! And, yes, he sang and played guitar today! Wonderfully.

I mentioned the ever exuberant Jewel Parelman earlier! Wow, I think every single runner experienced her support as they finished the race and she cheered them in. Wonderful girl, perfect person for this job! I got a photo with her, but we had to redo it because I didn’t hug her hard enough!

At some point, I heard some rowdy cheering, which was for the mayor of Jackson Harvey Johnson. He is a big feller and decided to come out and participate! Good for him and good for Jackson!

We met a ton of very nice people today. In fact, everyone we met was super nice. Of course, I can’t mention every single person, but Pennier Johnson was one who really stood out. Joseph and I greatly enjoyed meeting both her and her husband.  She ran the 5k and and has already taken 20 minutes off of her time!

PennierJohnson2Good

Overall, great race.  Couple of minor issues with some immediate timing results for the half, but I think they worked that out. A lot of people trying to become more healthy and fit and a lot of already fit folks out there as well. Great mix of people, wonderful day, and fun and safe race.
