I also have asthma and a peanut allergy and don't wear a bracelet either. They should come up with an athletic version of them. Those metal things don't look conducive to endurance sports. How about a Timex Ironman MedicAlert?

That's Incredible!!! I'm up to 96 catches that should get me about 100m. Does anyone else need to refrain themselves from making ball jokes? Or am I the only childish one. That's great (the catches, not the balls jokes)! Once you can catch 100, that's considered "solid" in the juggling world. Then ...

I purposely ran outside instead of going to the gym (next to the store full of tasty treats) just so I could avoid post-run treats!!! I am strongly considering making some date squares to celebrate two things... 1. Grey's Anatomy 2. My super awesome run (even though it was outside in the cold and d...

I wish people would leave my records alone so I could move onto the next ones. The backwards marathon was planned for next year, but I've been reevaluating my priorities lately and have decided that running a retro marathon may not fit into my schedule. I do, however, want to break the 8K record for...

Stroller-pushing marathon record

Looks like my stroller-pushing record is in serious jeopardy! http://www.fredericknewspost.com/sections/news/display.htm?StoryID=58915 http://www.knoxnews.com/kns/other_sports/article/0,1406,KNS_304_5454855,00.html But I'll still be the first in the 20-month-old baby category.

Sporting Life is also fast because the competition is fierce; you get pulled along by a lot of other fast runners. Plus you're running most of it in a straight line.

I once ran my first km in 2:50 there and looked up to see a mass of other runners in front of me.

I used to run along that route when I lived in the west end. It's a good race, but the weather is usually hot and humid. One year they served Krispy Kremes in the finishing chute and I watched a bunch of runners negate all the calories they burned during the race with a few bites. I ate half of one ...

Thank you everyone. Having an "online" cheering section here was a good motivator. Too bad I just missed the record, but the head-to-head joggle-off certainly lived up to its name. We exchanged the lead several times throughout the race, each of us gaining up to 40 seconds on the other at some point...

Take a looksie at this article from Pfitzinger ... :P http://www.pfitzinger.com/marathontraining.shtml This shows that for the best marathon training, you need to put all the pieces of the puzzle together. I've used 800m repeats for 8 years now and believe they play a key role in increasing speed. ...

I'll tell you right now that I am not quite capable of a 4:09 marathon. That's not lacking self confidence, I'm not quite there yet. I've found the Yassos to be a really good predictor myself, but the theory does assume that you've done all the rest of the training for the marathon, like good quali...

Three days until the big race in Salt Lake City. It's 20C and sunny and I'm not running today - go figure. The good news is that the SLC forecast is partly cloudy and a high of 15C. Perfection!

31k @ 5:28 pace this morning along the canal. After turning around in Thorold, followed a rail line for a bit before getting back onto the path. Glad I did 'cause came across a doe.

Hi Mich, Hey, our names both start with the same first four letters. Maybe I'll try to get my wife to join here too. We have two daughters, 4 and 2, so she's pretty busy as well, but I'm sure she could use some support as she eases back into running. Welcome, http://thejoggler.blogspot.com Michal
