  • Mittens or Gloves

    Posted on January 30, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    With the cold weather seeming to be here to stay for a while I am trying to find a good pair of mittens for running.  I read the other day that mittens offer better warmth and protection for your hands because they keeps your fingers together which creates more heat.  The gloves keep your fingers seperated […]

    Two years ago, I decided to run a marathon just a few weeks after running the Disney World Marathon.  The marathon was scheduled three weeks after the Disney.  It was going to be my fourth marathon.  I was working to break 4 hours and thought a nice flat course could help me do the trick.  Well starting at about mile […]

    I listened to a good podcast this week (Run the Ultra’s).  On the podcast they interviewed Karl King of Succeed Sportsdrink.  It was a good interview with a lot of great information.  What is frustrating for me in a distance race is my lack of follow through and execution of hydration.  Many times I know what I should do […]

    Last year was a good year from one running perspective in particular.  I stayed healthier than I have in several years.  The biggest thing I can point to is recovery.  The previous two years right after a January marathon I jumped right back on the training plan.  In fact two years ago I ran a marathon […]

  • Goofy race report (Marathon part 2)

    Posted on January 18, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    As I ran under the bridge I would head to The Jennifer Hudson mile 7.  Over the next couple of miles the course opens up a good bit.  We pass a water stop and begin to approach the race track on the right hand side.  The excitement will begin to build as we get closer […]
