    Stay Tuned

    Sounds like you are ready! Good luck with your first marathon! And have fun!
  2. As a martial artist and runner, and father to two little girls, I think this is awesome. Also a bit sad that you have to deal with this and all the harassment on your runs over the years. I hope you can quickly figure out your "hambutt" problems and get back to running soon! And Happy New Year!

    You seem to be at every Loopfest! Good times. If I went all the way to the east coast, I think I'd have to run 50 miles to get my money'a worth! But you're right about the people and the magic. The race is just an excuse to hang out with "old friends". Congrats on the solid race!
  4. You've always been such a positive voice in the Loop. And even when you're not running, you'll always be a runner at heart. Does a musician ever stop being a musician? Always good to read a blog from you!

    5 weeks to go!

    I ran on the strip a couple years ago. All those stairs are maddening, but it beats running on the hotel treadmill! Good luck on your 1st marathon! Sounds like your training is going great!
  6. What an amazing race! A 2:47 PR blows my mind! The courage to go after that "pie in the sky" dream and to come so close is so inspiring! I really hope you get it someday soon. Congratulations on a great race!
  7. Congrats on the Sub-3! That is an awesome accomplishment! Great job, man! I wish I could've been there! So many cool loopsters running the race this year!
  8. Too funny about the KT Tape! It's always nice to hang out with Loopsters. One of these days, I'll have to join you guys on the East Coast... Glad your hammy cooperated for your race!
  9. Good job on the marathon finish, Dave, despite the wonky hamstring. Sounds like another great Loopfest!
  10. "First run in 1905, the Dipsea is the oldest trail race in America. It is run every year on the second Sunday in June. The scenic 7.4 mile course from Mill Valley to Stinson Beach is considered to be one of the most beautiful courses in the world. The stairs and steep trails make it a grueling and treacherous race. And its unique handicapping system has made winners of men and women of all ages." (http://www.dipsea.org/) The Quad Dipsea is a bit easier to get into, but still sells out pretty quickly every year (4 times the fun of the Dipsea?). This year was the 34th running of the Quad Di
  11. Looks like a great turkey trot! It's on trails too! Maybe we can get Mo to write a blog one of these days. She is such a great artist - maybe she can paint a blog!
  12. Congrats on such a well run race! Negative splits are not easy to pull off in a race. Great job!
  13. Congrats on the age group win! Good to see you in the new Loop!
  14. Yes, it is a mere 50K! Sign up!
  15. The Overlook 50K was created by Ann Trason and is run mostly on the Western States course. Most of you know that I hired Ann as my coach a few years ago when I trained and ran my first Western States race. Despite the painful DNF (did not finish) there, I had a wonderful journey, highlighted by Ann Trason's inspirational tutelage. I came into this race pathetically under-trained, with no long trail runs for about 4 months. Still, I was hopeful that I could fake my way to a finish and get a long training run in the process. Surprisingly, I ran really well for about 27 miles! Then it
