  • 3 weeks to go..

    In 3 weeks I will run my 3rd marathon in 3 months (and 4th of the year) and I've got to say I feel pretty darn good about it. Its not been 2 weeks since Seattle and I've had a couple decent training runs - a 2 miler at about 8:30 pace and a 6.5 miler at 8:45 pace (thanks D - that was supposed...

  • Heavy Metal

    My code isn't working and I need a distraction so here's something I've been meaning to do for a while. Budget for the Rock and Roll/Elite Racing Heavy Metal medal series. As you all well know though I love my running I am unlikely to ever have the time or desire to win anything unless I...

  • Marathon toilet etiquette

    Another month, another marathon. The ZMan is now 4 weeks and 26.2 miles away from being a marathon maniac ( bronze level only ). On Sunday, still full of Turkey and beer I did my 2nd of 3 marathons in 3 months right here at home in Seattle. I've done the Seattle half and the full before so its getting...

  • Victoria... nice marathon but what to blog?

    I know you all expect tantalizing images of lycra clad bottoms, 'jet powered' runners and other humorous stories but either I was not paying attention in Victoria this weekend or nothing much happened because there was precious little in the way of entertaining blog fodder. But back to the beginning...

  • More running madness

    For those of you worried about my lack of marathons lately fear not - the best is yet to come. The year started by running my 5th Marathon and 5th half marathon back to back at Disneyland. This is still the hardest thing I've ever done. Then just to make sure I was really crazy I did a 50k . Then...

  • TRI-ing it again [groan]

    Those of you paying attention will remember last years triathlon at Lake Chelan . Well it was such good fun (well maybe the wine tasting) that J and I heading out there with some other runner friends for a repeat. Triathlons vary quite a bit. Seems like the Olympic, Half Iron and Ironman distances are...

  • A quick trip to Vancouver

    Time for another running story - with tales of lycra and nasty smells abound. For the second time my running group headed North from Seattle to the frozen wastes of Canada and a the city with one of the worst traffic systems I have ever seen. I swear that they randomly change which streets are one way...

  • Ultraman

    It used to be that running a marathon was a big deal - until Oprah ran one ! Now every man and his dog, and his cat, and his parrot and his pet stick insect has run a marathon. So how can you possibly stand out from the crowd? Run an ultramarathon ! Yes my dearest family and friends you can now say you...

  • Hills should be illegal!

    I know you are all expecting my race reports to get crazier and crazier after my goofy race but the next crazy race is not for 5 more weeks (only the 50k folks - I'm not totally insane [well maybe not till 2009]). But as part of the training we like to get out and do a race every so often and the...

  • The day after

    Yesterday I did something crazy so its only fair that today my body gets to pay me back. However thankfully it appears to have taken pity on me. After the race I came back and took the obligatory ice bath - that's 4 in 3 days! Walking has not been too bad. Going down stairs is slightly painful though...
