  • 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 as always becuase they have to bus 3000 people...

  • 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 to make it interesting the trail has 430 feet of...

  • 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 freestyle and certainly never good enough to swim...

There are so many strange and wonderful races out there. August 2009. Swimming fun. Next week its time to start swimming again but this time I need to build up...

  • 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 the race so since its local it was really a...

  • From Couch Potato to Ultramarathoner/Triathlete

    Every so often someone from my past discovers my blog or asks me what I'm up to these days. When they discover the running history of the last 4 years most of them don't believe me. I don't blame them. Up until the age of 16 I occasionally did some cross country running and swam a little...

  • Ooops... ZMan accidentally enters the London Marathon

    Yesterday I was reading how the new Virgin London Marathon site was having trouble handling the volume of people who want to enter the 2010 race. Its no surprise - the 2009 was on Sunday so there's lots of people feeling inspired - many of of which will probably live to regret their enthusiasm and...

  • The next big running goal

    The lack of blog posts tell you 2 things: I'm busy catching up on work from having too many conferences in one month There's been no races to write witty little reports on As I said I am taking things pretty easy this year after running 4 marathons and an ultra last year. I ran part of a 3 hour...

  • The ZManiac!

    It is done.... 3 marathons in 3 months and I am a Marathon Maniac ( bronze level!) . My birthday is the 30th and I have been known to consume a few brewski's in celebration but this year we spent a relaxing night in a nice hotel in Bellingham and had a nice birthday dinner at Anthony's because...

  • You know you are a hardcore runner when....

    ...after missing one training session due to the snow and being on the verge of missing a second you decide to walk over to the local school, flatten yourself out a 300m trail and then run 27 laps to get your hour run in. Yes J and I were getting a little stir crazy and though I'm probably plenty...
