  • Summer Running Roundup

    Well with the blog being down over the summer I didn't get to bore you with my occasional running post. Big news was marathon #2 in Portland, OR. Since 26.2 miles is such a big deal my main worry was that Vancouver was a fluke, somehow fueled purely on race day adrenaline. So even with my vast marathon...

  • Can the ZMan run when he's full of chocolate?

    For once my bitching paid off and just like Earl karma slapped me right back in the face. I visited a friend on Friday night who happens to read my blog, as a result I got officially certified (by me!) triple chocolate brownies. The brownies were chocolate, there was a layer of Ghirardelli chocolate...

  • 26.2

    I am now part of the elite club of marathon runners - yes I finished the Vancouver marathon yesterday with little in the way of bad effects. My thighs are aching a little today and my legs are slightly stiff but all in all I feel better than I have done after shorter races. We headed up to Vancouver...

  • 57 miles of pain...

    I know most of you probably don't care about my race reports, but as my distances get longer the more I feel the need to share it. Yes, its just feeding my ego but isn't that what 99% of blogs are about? This weekend myself and 5 friends competed in the Mt Si Relay . Its 57 miles made up up 10...

  • Long Runs and XNA framework

    There's nothing like mixing up topics to confuse the search engines...... Firstly, I ran my longest training run ever. Around 3 hours and around 19 miles. I find it quite amazing that this is the furthest I will run before I do the actual marathon (26 and a bit miles and probably 4 hours 30 minutes...

  • (Half) Marathon Man

    Just to prove last Novembers half marathon was no fluke I did it again. 13.1 miles of pain and this time I actually felt some pain. There is a theory amongst my running group that in the Seattle half marathon I was on some running or Gu induced high because the I really don't remember the 2nd big...

  • Running.... its supposed to be good for you

    As I've mentioned before I've been doing some running over the past 12 months. On Saturday I paid my $80 to run my 1st full 26.2 mile marathon Sunday May 7th in Vancouver, Canada . Yes you have to pay for these things and they get more and more expensive the longer the race. Surprisingly, I'm...

  • No world records

    Well the race is over, the terrible rain that I awoke to at 5:30am (Yes that's AM - runners are a crazy bunch) faded by 7:30 and though it was chilly we didn't get wet which is all I care about. 2 hours in the rain is not much fun. Final time 2:08:04 which is pretty damn good if I do say so myself...

  • ZMan's big day

    It's been a busy week - The ZChick had me installing new bathroom cabinets on Monday (apparently being at home all day means I can work on the honey-do list 7 days a week), some Christmas shopping on Tuesday (has to be done early to catch the post back to England) followed of course by Thanksgiving...

  • Another get rich quick scheme fails

    Since I am currently unemployed with no regular income, yesterday the ZChick and I decided to head off to Emerald Downs and see if we could win ourselves an early retirement. I'm typing this from home after putting off more yard work ("becuase its too hot and I'm too English to be out in...
