Now that I’ve had some time to let the experience of my 1st half simmer for a week or so, I have a laundry list of observations and thoughts. Pasta dinner is essential. I was pretty good about staying off my feet the day before the race, and the short 2 miler was a nice [...]

I am happy to announce that yesterday’s Houston Aramco 1/2 Marathon was an incredible success. Richard, Kristin and I all completed the race, with smiles on our faces. Kristin kicked butt and ran in under two hours, Richard beat his PR by a great margin, and I ran in 2:05. ! I was expecting 2:15 [...]

Here’s something fun to do to spice up your winter running. I was out running today with my daughter (who was on roller blades) when I came upon a patch of ice on the side of the street that was about 30 feet long and just wide enough to run on. We’ve had a number [...]

Hi folks! I am happy to report that my 20 minute run today went well. I can feel my body well and only felt a minor twinge in my right lower calf. It’s similar to how it felt after the 5K in Orlando, and I’m just trying to remember how it felt and what I [...]

Here is the route I ran this afternoon. Until I mapped it, I thought I had run 8, not 9, so I feel a little better, but I was SLOW. 1 hr 45 minutes for 9 miles? I will be lucky to finish in 2.5 hours on Sunday! Gosh. I felt great until mile 5. [...]

… for not writing more frequently? Probably not, because this post isn’t going to be all that incredible, but really… the race is coming up THIS SUNDAY! Wow! I wonder if I have stage fright.

A message of pure gratitude as your book on Chi Running has completely changed my running experience. In only three and a half years I've gone through patellar tendonitis (in both knees), plantar fasciitis, and many other injuries I can't even describe.
