2014 Cool Moon 50

Print PDF

When a race goes wrong, I like to look at it as an opportunity for lessons to be learned. That being the case, there are a lot of lessons to be learned from the Cool Moon 50 because the train went off the tracks in the first 10 miles. What followed was an ugly struggle to the finish.

The course consists of two loops: one 14 miler, the other, 11 miles.

When the gun went off, I was in the front but truthfully, there were a handful of people in the entire race so this shouldn't come as a shocker.

Make It Count

Print PDF

In our area, Mt. Diablo is one of those hills everyone feels the need to conquer -- usually by bike. I've ridden Diablo to the summit a number of times and on the weekends, the road is littered with athletes just like me.

When my interests shifted to ultrarunning, I ran the lesser daunting hills in our area. But now feeling a bit more seasoned, Diablo is becoming a regular route on my training plan. Not so many folks littering the trails attempting to summit Diablo by foot!

Miwok 100k

I have so much to say!  It's been a while since I've last written and I have quite a bit of ground to cover.

As I attempted to crank out my race report for the Miwok 100k, I found the first few paragraphs (more like three pages) were about everything but Miwok.

After getting to the end of the first draft, I looked at its length and I decided I didn't even want to read it because there was just too much. 
In an attempt to keep your attention span (and mine!), I will try to stay on topic and I will play catch up in another post or two.

Free Marathon Training Plan

Print PDF

I received an email from a friend the other day and he asked me to look over a marathon plan he downloaded off of the Internet. A quick look over the plan and I immediately thought it was too much volume.

And a few months ago, a friend of mine sent me an email and he asked me for my opinion on a marathon plan he found in some book he purchased. Looking over the plan, I immediately thought there wasn't enough frequency.

Life After Kona

Print PDF

Kona was a little over a month ago and although I'm in my "off season", I haven't found time to blog so I thought I'd do a little catching up. 

After the race, I kicked up my feet and relaxed.
