    “People can’t understand why a man runs. They don’t see any sport in it. Argue it lacks the sight and thrill of body contact. Yet, the conflict is there, more raw and challenging than any man versus man competition. For in running it is man against himself, the cruelest of opponents. The other runners are […]

  • The other Peachtree Road Races

    Posted on June 29, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    With 55,000 runners on July 4th there are about 55,000 different races going on at once.  That is the beauty of a road race is that we measure our efforts and performance against our own expectations and where we finish does not determine our success or failure but how we finish and run determine that.  Don’t get […]

  • Number 1402

    Always nice to find out that number for the Peachtree Road Race.  I will be picking it up at the Expo this weekend but nice to know the number.  So far the weather looks like it might be improving some for this weekend as well.  Just a little cooler than it has been would be […]

    With just one week until the Peachtree and three weeks until the Lone Ranger the taper has begun.  This past week I cut my miles back into the mid 40 range and will drop back even more this week.  From here until each race it is now about keeping healthy and staying ready.  I feel […]

    This is not from a source I would have expected but I can relate.  I can remember saying this same thing on many days. “I have to make myself take a day off.  I get addicted, and I feel guilty if I don’t run.  I have to remember it’s the recovery days when you actually […]

  • A day off! What a concept

    Posted on June 24, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    I can have a tendency to go pretty hard in training and even run more than my schedule says.  Well in the last 4-5 days I have felt a little tired and felt a little beat up.  I looked up and suddenly realized I had not taken a day off in training in the last 11 […]

  • Training update for 6/22

    Posted on June 22, 2010 by in Uncategorized

    Less than 2 weeks from the Peachtree and less than 4 weeks from the Lone Ranger at this point.  It is nice to get the miles down this week to a more manageable level.  It is still high volume but not quite as high as it has been.  I have a pretty solid 12 mile run […]
