  • Creating momentum

    Posted on January 28, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    If you have ever watched a good college basketball game you know what true momentum looks like.  If it is a home game you really know the difference.  The crowd is going crazy.  Everything seems to be going right for the home team.  Every loose ball is for them.  Every crazy shot is going in […]

  • Getting back in it

    Posted on January 27, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    This week and last week I have spent time getting back in training.  Between the last couple of races it feels like I have spent a lot of time recently in taper or recovery mode.  I really do enjoy the training.  The work or a 40-50 mile week gets me as excited as running the […]

    Now if you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired morning, noon, and night. But the body is never tired if […]

And you wonder later, ‘How did I do that?’ This question compels you to keep making the journey from the usual to the magical. — […]

    Posted on January 19, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    And so it begins.  My Adventure starts right here.  At first I thought I am starting to feel bloated.  I thought nothing of it at first and soon realized what was going on.  My GI issues were going to pay me another visit.  No need to get too graphic but we are all friends here, […]

  • Disney World Half Marathon Race Report Part 1

    Posted on January 17, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    There was a much different feeling heading down to Disney this year than last.  It is funny what a weather forecast can do for you.  A combination of the weather and knowing I had 13.1 miles instead of 39.3 probably had something to do with it as well.  I had some good training runs to […]

  • A fresh start

    Posted on January 14, 2011 by in Uncategorized

    Running the Disney Marathon or Half Marathon never really seems to me like kicking off a new year.  It always seems like the celebration of the previous year.  I have to say it was a great time and I really enjoyed the race.  I am glad I decided to run the half this year.  I […]

    One of the most important things for me on race day is to just be able to find a place to relax and enjoy the event.  I never like rushing to the start line and feeling unsettled about trying to hurry and get there.  Disney makes sure that does not happen!  There is plenty of […]
