Three years ago I finished the Suzuki Rock n’ Roll Marathon. This past weekend I finally compiled all of the footage that I’d taken into a little video. I share it out here in cyberspace so that I stay motivated to redeem myself this summer as I attempt to complete a marathon in under four […]

My initial excitment at having runner’s knee has worn off (imagine that!). This ailment doesn’t bother me during the course of my regular day, but it does prevent me from training. The first few running free days were great. Now I’m jogging to the mailbox and pouting as I look at the open road that […]
