Just got in from a solid 7 mile run. I took a complete week off, before today I hadn’t run since a 12 mile run last Saturday. For those of you that don’t already know, I went to the podiatrist on Tuesday of last week and got diagnosed with a severe case of tendinitis in […]

HEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!  I’m back.  I didn’t really get in here and post anything since I really didn’t have anything to talk about.  My personal running schedule has been a little different than the schedule we started with.  We decided to throw in a few races to get some experience before time for the marathon.  This past […]



February 21, 2008.  Good, solid, day.  This week has been pretty good so far, a little slow at work so that’s getting old…not TOO productive studying-wise…really going to have to play catch up this weekend.  Other than that, Big Brother 9 is heating up quick, I’m having fun watching that.  The Evanator won American Gladiators…as […]

I’m about 3 runs behind in posting, so I thought I’d knock them all out right now in one nice, easy to read, clean, fun, interesting, glorious blogsee.  So last Wednesday we were scheduled to run 5 miles…these 5 were pretty uneventful and came surprisingly easy.  Ran at the gym on the treadmill so I […]

Hello.  Well today was the farthest we’ve ran to date.  Overall, good.  Where I was sick the beginning of last week I didn’t get my 3 miles in on Monday, thought that was best.  So my first run of this week was the 5 miles on Wednesday, that one went pretty good…but I developed some […]



Well, here I am…first time out of bed since about 4pm yesterday.  The only reason I got up was to give my back some relief of laying in the bed, it was hurting pretty bad.  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have little men in your chest with garden rakes scraping […]

Running for Fun


I’ve never ever been one to ‘run for fun’…I thought at this point in my training, almost 4 weeks in (hard to believe, eh guys?) and I’m still not out there having ‘fun’.  The fun part for me is the return trip from each run.  If it’s an out and back, the back part is […]



So Z and I ran in the big city last night, here’s the run we planned on taking.  But what it really ended up being only God, me and Z really know.  We ran into a series of screw ups, non existent roads, and sidewalks that resembled running on an enormous lego, if you can […]



Monday’s run was pretty tough for me. Just an easy 3 miles, right? Well…not exactly…Z and I set out for the run with high hopes that shorts and just a long sleeve UA shirt would be enough to battle the 47 degree temperatures. The first half mile, we were wrong. The rest of the run […]

So, here I sit in my desk chair, where I’ve been for about 85% of the day.  I woke up this morning…which is a good thing…that means I must be stronger, isn’t that how it works?  I was a little hesitant to move my legs in fear that they might’ve either fallen off throughout the […]
