  • 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 did post a race report) I decided to back off the...

  • 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 may remember it - heck he even has a link from...

  • 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 weather is not great in Seattle right now but 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 and just went very tight. After various rest periods...

  • 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. But if I can run 50 miles on one day surely 2...

  • 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 just fine. I even made plans for a celebratory...

  • 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 a race but then I read you have to be done by 5pm...

  • 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 about this 50k was that it was just a training run...

  • 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 race starts with 3 laps in the dark. Once I got...
