Setting the Tone

Saturday was an awesome day. We knocked out lots of to-dos that needed to-doing, like unpacking that last annoying box, building a fence, fixing a ceiling fan, and raking leaves. But what started this blast of productivity can all be traced back to my long run.

18 miles of Austin’s lesser-traveled roads started my day. Hazel and I took off under the cool, overcast skies. She easily handled her 6.2 miles in a shade over 47 minutes. At 38 pounds, she’s quite the star athlete laying down times some long-time runners would love to achieve. (Aside: There will never ever [ever] be a time where she is too tired to go for a run. Talk about no excuses. She’s the best running buddy in the world. Sorry Colin.)

After dropping her home, I continued on, basking in the quiet Saturday morning solitude. As my watched beeped for each passing mile, I picked up the pace. For

a reason beyond description (but for which I am thankful), a feeling of joy washed over me and the only thing I could do was run faster. My last mile was the fastest of the day. It set the tone for the rest of the day. All the productivity mentioned above was thanks to feeling awesome.

Rather than drone on, I’ll say this is exactly how I felt (flames and all):




Back Attack!

I run a lot.  I eat well.  I generally take care of myself.  Sure, there are things I could do better (more sleep, less kettlecorn [damn you, kettlecorn!], more sunscreen), but overall I’d say I’m holding things together pretty well.  So when Ev mentioned implored that I should pay a visit to the dermatologist to check a questionable spot on my back, I didn’t think much of it [damn you, ego!].  Warning: some pictures not ideal for the very squeamish.

Running Late for Boston

It’s December 10th.  You know what that means??  It’s Day 1 of training for the Boston Marathon!  Or at least it was supposed to be.  Instead I’m on something of a temporary medical leave starting today for the next 10-12 days.  Nothing like a doctor’s strict “don’t exert yourself” to bring things to screeching halt before they can get started.  So for now I’m talking the next week and a half off to think about resting before intense training begins.  My biggest concern is how much fitness I’ll need to regain after two weeks off.  Ok, end of pity party.

New official start date for training: December 24.  Let the countdown begin!

Formula Run

Vrooom!  Vroooooom!  Saturday the brand new, not really finished Formula 1 race track opened its gates to runners, joggers, and walkers to take a tour of its 3.4 mile loop.  Known as the Circuit of the Americas, it’s the only Formula 1 track in the United States.  With the inaugural F1 race taking place in 2 weeks, RunTex put on this fun run giving special access and a preview of the course before anyone else.

My New Favorite Quote

This morning I saw, and immediately shared, a picture that was posted by the Austin Marathon on Facebook. It was one of those things that

You Are A Superhero

Being a superhero doesn’t require a cape, special powers, or even a cool name.  It’s much simpler than that.  All you have to do is act like a human being and help others when help is needed.  The local CASA chapter is putting on its annual Superhero 5K Run this Sunday 9/30, which raises support and awareness for the children whose lives they work tirelessly to improve.

I Got Into the Boston Marathon! – Part 3

Before anything be sure to catch up with Part 1 and Part 2 of getting into the Boston Marathon. That’s right. I’m officially in the Boston Marathon! I got the email today!

As I explained in my Registration post, after signing up they leave you with an ominous “ok, we’ll get back to

And if that official email isn’t enough, you can check out the official 2013 Boston Marathon Entry List. In the big scheme of things, it’s not really a big deal. But in the running scheme of things, it’s huge. For now I’ll bask in the excitement of being accepted. For later I’ll worry about months of training and actually running 26.2 miles. All I have to say now is:
