I’m just passing the two week threshold on my new “diet”. The protocol is as follows:
1) Don’t eat anything that includes any form of added carbohydrate within the first three listed ingredients.
I may break this rule only when it comes to training nutrition, such as having Clif Bloks during a long run.
Compliance to [...]
Today I was able to participate in a six person marathon relay!
It took place indoors at the enormous rec complex in Gillette, WY. A spectacular venue for such an event.
Initially I was going to do the full marathon as a warmup, long run at 90% goal marathon pace, and cool down. However Sunday I developed a fever through Monday. Tuesday or W [...]
“If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple, you’re not hungry.”

The presc [...]
I received my labs from getting on new life insurance.
Happy to report that everything is within appropriate levels!
Indie 5k at The Running Event
Last night I returned from Austin, Texas and The Running Event.
This is an industry only, and you can read more about it here (posting on Jan1st).
The above link is from SKORA’s website, but I wanted to share my own thoughts and experiences from a more personal point of view as well.
We’ll st [...]
Two weeks ago I had my unloading week, so this was the first week back in full.
Due to the snow and ice, I’ve moved all of my quality work onto the treadmills, which is better than not doing them at all or risking falling.
I also enjoy running on the treadmill, and will often do 1 of the 2 daily runs indoors. Something I’ve really [...]
