Personal:

No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

Hot tips for winter running:

Screwshoes
Poor man's cleats. this works a LOT better than you would think! Very quick and easy.

LittleHotties
Are you cheap like me? Put those little hotties in a ziplock bag and use them again tomorrow!

Kickstart your dead Garmin
Hold down the reset/lap button and the mode button together to get your 205/305/310xt to restart if it won't turn on or if it freezes up.

I didn't want to do it in the road today so I ran through the trails in the park for the first 5 miles. I saw a some beatles, a blackbird, three cool cats, a raccoon that I named rocky and an old brown shoe on the trail. I was having fun, but I kept getting rocks stuck in my rubber soles and felt like I was getting nowhere, man. So I decided to get back to the paved path around the lake. Once I got to the lake I felt free as a bird and couldn't slow down. Don't ask me why, but I felt like I could run all the way across the universe. I wish I could do this eight days a week. Dig it?

I've got a feeling it's all too much for him :)

You really came out of the marathon in great shape and seem to be kicking it into another gear!

Thanks. I'm feeling a lot better than I expected. Probably because I wasn't really training at 100% I was a little paranoid about re-injuring my leg and missing another chance at that BQ.

You dirty dog!
