  • A new kind of pain

    When we left our hero he was feeling pretty darn good for having run a half marathon after getting up at 3am. When the alarm went off at 3am today (Sunday) I was feeling really good. J walked me to the bus stop at 3:30 and I headed off to the start line for the second time in 2 days. Today there was...

  • One third of the way there...

    Well I know those of you on the west coast are probably not even out of bed and some of us have already run a half marathon!!! When you left the thrilling epistle last night the hero (and heroine) had just had the traditional 'night before the race cold bath' and were trying to get to sleep....

  • Iced nuts!

    Well I just got out of 15 minutes in a bath with actual ice in it! Yes Coach REAL ICE! The cold water in the hotel is tepid at best - so after a few minutes in that J decided it needed something extra. After 3 ice buckets full didn't make a dent in the temperature it I filled up a plastic bag and...

  • Three days to go...

    Taking the time difference into account I have a little over 3 days to go before I drag myself out of bed at 1am Seattle time to ride a bus to probably the craziest thing I have ever done. At 6am EST on Saturday I will be running the Disney World half marathon - 13.1 miles through Epcot and the Magic...

  • ZMan likes peanut butter!!!

    Getting out of bed on a Monday morning is never one of my favourite things in the world but today the legs were rather more unresponsive than normal and with good reason. Yesterday I finished my 4th full marathon and my 1st (and last) one in 2007 due to an injury that took me out earlier in the year...

  • Running, beer and people who fart...

    I just got back from a great weekend in Leavenworth, WA where I did several of my favourite things - I ran a half marathon and I drank lots of beer . As for the farting well you will have to read on. My plan for the half marathon was to take things fairly easy. Its my first long race since the Vegas...

  • ZMan the Triathlete

    Not content with the title of marathon runner and male gigolo this weekend after much swim training I finished my first triathlon. We travelled out to Lake Chelan on Thursday afternoon - a nice 3.5 hour drive over 2 mountain passes. For once I was a passenger so I got to check out the scenery and not...

  • No 50k for The Zman

    Someone asked me if I was still doing the ultra 50k - sadly no. The event was last weekend (Sunday 22nd April) and though my leg injury is better the doctors didn't think that running 31 miles was a good way to recover. Seems they are probably right as I am still having a few issues. I went to the...

  • Professional Athlete?

    As some of you may know my running career is slightly on hold due to an annoying calf injury which is making running fast or far quite uncomfortable. I rested it, changed shoes, got new insoles and taped the muscle every time I trained but though it improved it really wasn't fixed. I am supposed...

  • What happens in Vegas doesn't stay in Vegas

    Well I'm just back from Las Vegas where I not only tried to drink Jimmy Buffet's Maragaritaville dry, but I also ran my 3rd marathon in 8 months. I arrived on Wednesday so as to give me at least one day of partying before I had to clean up my act before running. The marathon starts at 6am to...
