Pacing Recap: Dream Mile Marathon 2018

The good/bad of writing a recap almost a month after the race: there’s only so much you remember (bad) but the parts you do hopefully make for a more succinct, compelling story (good). However, funny details are forgotten (bad) and

CIM 2016: Training Recap & Looking Ahead

OK, last post about CIM and then I’m moving on. I wanted to write a quick run-down of my training – basic numbers, what was good, and what was bad. Then, I’ll write a quick blurb about what’s ahead. First,

Race Recap: 2016 California International Marathon

30-second version: Race day conditions were perfect and I felt good at the start. I took it out a bit more aggressively than in previous marathons, but I kept my effort easy. The first 10K flew by and I felt

CIM Training Week 10 of 12: Peak Week?

“Peak Week 1” LOLZ. I don’t know if I’m peaking, or just feel “peak-ed”. With Thanksgiving upon us, I can’t help but get in the mindset of feeling grateful for a lot of things in my life. In terms of

CIM Training Week 8 of 12: Unplanned Step Back Week

Well, there’s usually at least a couple of hiccups during any marathon training cycle, and mine arrived Thursday in the form of a sore throat. As (what I hope to be) a mild head cold moves through my system, I

CIM Training Week 6 of 12 + Some New Things I Like

Six weeks down, six more weeks to go! WOOT! Monday: Rest. Tuesday: 13 x (1 min on/1 min off). Nothing like fartleks to wake up dead legs. ~5.5 miles (this is when my Garmin’s GPS was still busted, so I’m

CIM Week 3 of 12 & Pacing the Tiburon Half Marathon

Howdy! The nice thing about a 12-week training cycle is that I can say that I’m already a quarter done at the end of Week 3. Hooray! Monday: Rest. Tuesday: Long midweek run (80-90 minutes). This was a comedy of

CIM Training Week 2 (of 12)

Monday: Rest. Tuesday: Leg speed (aka strides) – 10 x 25 sec on/1 min off. Nice little workout to get the legs to turnover more efficiently. 5.9 miles @ 10:10/mile Wednesday: 60 minutes easy. I just couldn’t get my act

CIM Training Week 1 (of 12)

I’ve been staying away from weekly training recaps, because I think they tend to be a bit dry, but I’ll make an exception for CIM training because I usually like to go back and read details on how a particular

Race Recap: 2015 Santa Rosa Marathon

Last week, I ran a secret marathon. If you know me, I’m terrible at keeping secrets, especially when they’re as big as, “I’m running a marathon!!” Despite my recently attained ultramarathoner-status, I still think 26.2 is a pretty big deal.
