On the plains of New Mexico, a band of elite marathoners tests a controversial theory of evolution: that humans can outrun the fastest animals on earth.
Definitely a tough week of running which included my longest run yet and the most mileage I’ve accumulated in a week. The previous week was a bit of a let down when I bonked at mile 14 on my long run and I had to cut my it short by a mile, but this week, things went a whole lot better. First of all, the weather in Seattle is finally starting to feel like Spring! We are having the sun come...
After watching the Boston Marathon this morning, I decided to go out for my own run. It was a tempo run for 8 miles and at a 9:21 pace. Hooray! I really needed that speed. My last two run were just so slow and I just needed to prove to myself that I am much faster than the 11 -12 min pace I ran. Anyway, I’m aiming for 46 miles for the week - 38 miles to go.

As for the Saturday run, it was slow, but nothing too...

Weight, its all relative
I currently weight in the low 190s and I’ve mentioned to a few co-workers that I wanted to lose weight to help in my distance running and all have just looked at me like I was crazy. “Do you want to look like a bean stalk?” one replied. I think compared to the rest of the people in my office, I’m thin. No offense to my coworkers, but we’re fat. We sit in front of...
