the daylight hours are getting shorter and shorter in the evenings. this is going to make it more interesting on my weekday runs when i typically run after work. example, last night when i was half of a stinking block from my house and i tripped on the sidewalk. now, my toe hurts and my ego was wounded because of the dude and lady who saw me trip and subsequently curse the heavens for my misfortune. guess i’ll have to start planning on that happening…



aside from the lower body fat, reduced risk of heart attack and nice buns, my main motivation for pre-dawn 6 mile runs is probably this:

the guilt-free breakfast burrito.


new GTRC hero…

check this guy out!

pretty crazy he ran a marathon in less time than it takes me to watch a movie…

edit: if you’re keeping score at home, that’s about a 4:42 pace, for the whole race. the whole thing. 26.2 miles of running sub-5 minute miles. what. the. hell.



what is up… like matt said, we should mos def get the band back together.

i been running fairly regularly, which is good. my mileage isn’t probably where it needs to be yet, which is bad. but it’ll get back up there, which is good! been lifting weights too, super duper fun… or not.

yeah, GTRC reunion at the G&S’s wedding, so that’ll be fun, should we pencil in a morning jog on saturday? i have a feeling we might be slightly less than motivated when the time comes. c’mon hovenia, don’t fail us now!!!

what’s up with everyone else? any races planned (two for me, november:avengers, december:The North Face Endurance Challenge, presented by GORETEX Half Marathon)???
