Running with The ZMan 2011 edition
Its been a while since I updated you about my running shenanigans (and for the record only Mr Clingerman actual ran the 5k with me and finished - though he did look a little green at the end). After my double marathon at the end of 2010 (hmmmmm I never...
Come to the MVP Summit and run a 5k - yes YOU!
Back in the days when I worried about the lack of documentation in Managed DirectX I met a guy called Jason Olson who worked at Microsoft and was also interested in Managed DirectX and blogged about it at 'Managed World ' - some of you old timers...

Double or Nothing
Another running blog post.... move along if that sort of thing bores you. There are less than 5 days to go before my next crazy run. 2 marathons in 2 days. Saturday 26th I run the Ghost of Seattle and Sunday 27th I run the actual Seattle marathon . The...

New Challenge Accepted!
Well its done.. I am now signed up to run a double marathon at the end of November which will make me more of a maniac . I had a little leg relapse after my previous announcement. My calf muscle decided that it had not had enough rest after the 50 miler...
How do you top 50 miles in one day?
52.4 in 2 days. Its been a while since I qualified for Marathon Maniacs by running 3 in 3 months so its about time I graduated to the next level of insane. Running a 50 miler doesn't count because this is a club based around running lots of marathons...
Recovery
Yes I know its over a week late... I'm a busy guy. Procrastination takes a lot of effort you know! So what happens after you run a 50 miler? Well right after the race I was moving around well. I got my own food, drink and walked around and stretched...
What did you do on Sunday?
Here's what I did: 4:15am - got up 4:20am - got dressed 4:30am - ate a bagel with some bacon 4:45am - drove to Mt Si High School 5:30am - went to the bathroom 5:45am - ate a energy bar and drank some Gatorade 5:50am - went to the bathroom again 6...
50 mile nerves
Yesterday I was checking out the website for the 50 mile race I'm running in April. They have a link to the course and while I was looking at it the enormity of the situation started dawning on me. I have to start at 6am which is fairly normal for...
Longest (training) run ever
In terms of distance it was identical to my last 50k almost 2 years ago. In terms of time it was longer. I was running for 6 hours 29 minutes which is the longest I've probably been on my feet ever including hiking. But the really different thing...
Sometimes you've got to quit...
Well those on facebook have probably heard the news but of course I need a proper race report. Saturday was a VERY early start. Up before 4am to arrive at the start line just after 5. I've never run at this park before even in the day light and this...
Running from Washington to Oregon and ultra training
Its not as far as it sounds if you start on the edge of one state and run to the other but what makes the Grand Columbia Crossing 10k interesting is that you get the once a year chance to run across the Megler Bridge ( more pictures ). Its an early start...
Lets play "How far can The ZMan run"?
Well its 5 weeks until the next crazy race. The Carkeek 12 hour . The premise of the race is simple. How many times can you run round a 1.93 mile loop in 12 hours. I start at 6am in the dark and I end at 6pm also in the dark. Only whole laps count. Just...
Singing Jonathan Coulton while you swim across the lake.
So why would a fairly sane guy do such a thing. Well I could run a 5k every weekend and I'd probably get faster but to be honest I like the variety of trying new things instead. I've swum since I can remember but never was any good at the old...
New Challenges
Its official - with my 1st marathon of the year out of the way the resting is over and its time to find some new and interesting challenges. There are so many strange and wonderful races out there. August 2009. Swimming fun. Next week its time to start...

What's the brown stuff running down your leg?
With a title like that I know you are going to have to read the whole blog post eh? Saturday was, as it almost always is on race day, an early start. The Seattle Rock and Roll marathon was in town and I had snagged a $45 entry a year ago when they announced...
