Run Reece Run

Christopher Reece

I run- after my students, my own kids, and occasionally on my own.

Strength in numbers

Ok, parents of little ones, you know how it often feels like you are outnumbered and overrun? Of course you do. And you know how every once in a while, you feel like the stars align and you actually get a moment of parenting bliss? Such was my afternoon, even if just for a moment. Our ...

The next challenge

So, it's been a while since I've been on the blog. It seems like I start every post like that. Well, life on the home front is keeping us super busy. The boys are growing and changing too fast, and we're trying our best to be intentional about spending time with them, even after a long day of tea...

Mid-year check-in, goal progress and such

Halfway through 2015? Holy crap, that went fast! Looking back at my New Year’s post, I set up two simple goals for this year (as far as running is concerned). 1. Four 100 mile months this year 2. No zero weeks So far, this year in running is going fairly well. I had one zero week this spring (T...

#RunChatHunt 2015

The good folks over at RunChat have put together another running scavenger hunt, or as they call it, a RunChatHunt. Participants are tasked with finding various common and not-so-common items on their run. You can check out the original post here, or keep reading to see what I found. Thi...

What? I have a blog?

So, I’ve been super swamped as of late. Ok, We’re always super busy. But as an elementary school teacher, the spring is crazy. There is light at the end of the tunnel, however, as June is nearly here. Then it’s summer school… Oh, well. I wouldn’t know what to do with free time anyway. ...

A look back at 2014, and some goals for 2015

Well, I just started to remember to write 2014 on things, so it must be the new year! I have spent a little time looking over the numbers from my running log, and it has been quite a year. As seems to be my norm, my running went in fits and starts all year long. Some of this was due to the cycl...

Week 1 training recap

This was the first week of my half marathon training plan, but I am in the throes of the 100 mile November challenge, so I can't claim that I stuck to the program. Here's what was scheduled: Monday- Stretch and Strengthen Tuesday- 3 miles Wednes...

#100Miles and a new training plan

100 miles in a month. For many of you, this may seem like a no-brainer. I would love to be in that group of cool kids, but as it stands, I have yet to hit 100 miles in a month. That is, until this month. I am participating in Angie Maske-Berka's (@angiemaskeberka) 100 mile November challenge....

10K Training: Weeks 4, 5, and 6

Just a quick update. Training has been stagnant at best. Cross-country return trip, August in Florida, getting a new school year up and running, etc., etc. I'm not going to bore anyone with excuses, but I am going to get back out there and get after it! For those who have busy schedules, how do ...

10K Training: Week 2

This was the second week of my 10K training plan, and as usual, we like to keep our schedule full. The end of summer brings our annual migration to Iowa, so I missed a couple of runs due to the 20-hour drive and following recovery sleep. I should have worn my Garmin while I chased this g...
