  • I'm Still AliveWell it has been quite a while since I've last posted on this blog.  It's a shame, I really do enjoy interacting with my readers, but it can be hard to find things to write about sometimes.  As running has been moved aside for other things...
  • Thin Air is Thin
    on Apr 19, 2011 in hills speed work-out high altitude
    Before I explain the meaning behind that totally ingenious, original, and non-meme-influenced post title, I'll give you a quick[ish] update on my running endeavors here in Maui.  Since my last post, I've done only one real workout (and by real I...
  • Running in Hawaii
    on Apr 14, 2011 in hawaii pacing hot
    So my family is on a much needed vacation to Hawaii, Maui specifically.  There gets a point for Seattlites when you simply have to get away from the elongated winter that seems to absorb fall and spring.  That image embedded above is a phot...
  • March 24th Redmond Meet Re-Cap
    on Mar 30, 2011 in anemic shins track 800 race re-cap
    Me running the 800.  Probably the first bend - I still look attractive. Shit, its been awhile.  I need to get back to posting on here more regularly.  Anyways, I'll give you an update from last week's meet.  We have another tomorr...
  • March 17th Nathan Hale Jamboree Re-Cap
    on Mar 18, 2011 in race pace track injury race re-cap
    Yesterday I had pretty shitty and frustrating race.  I ran the 1600 (mile) and didn't do so hot.  My first problem was that I went out WAY too fast.  After I heard my first 400 meter split (1 lap) I knew that I was going to have a shit...
  • Homemade Tarahumaran Huarache Running SandalsDaniel be working tha' numkeg. A runner friend of mine made Tarahumaran Huarache running sandals for his senior project.  This guy's a boss runner and his dad is a cobbler/shoemaker, so this project was perfect for him. He made everything from...
  • Damn, It's Been a While!
    on Mar 12, 2011 in announcement track
    Wow, so I was just checking up on my blog and realized that I haven't posted since February.  Holy shit!  That's way too long.  I hope none of my religious readers went crazy without my awesome posts... :D All egotistical douchebagger...
  • I Love Running at Night!Last night I was feeling good.  So I did some abs.  Because I always do abs after Track/XC practice, I always associate pain in my mid-section with running.  So I started craving a run, I'm just programmed to think that way I suppose.&...
  • SEO Tool for Running Bloggers
    on Feb 21, 2011 in fellow blogger announcement blogging
    I came to the conclusion yesterday that getting backlinks for running blogs is a pain in the ass without a good list of dofollow running/exercise blogs.  So I decided to make one.  Enjoy!
  • Experimentation with Barefoot RunningToday, during school, I decided that I kind of needed to go for a run.  For various reasons, I hadn't run since last Friday until today... that's a whole flippin' week!  So during my lifting/conditioning class, I just sort of slipped out an...
  • Mind Your Own Business, Please?
    on Feb 13, 2011 in rant non-runners run re-cap drivers
    On Friday I went running with a few pre-season Track buds after a leg day in the weight room.  Even though my entire lower body was shot from lifting, it was a totally bitching run.  We ran at like an 8 minute mile pace for 4.5 to 5 miles o...
  • Together is Better
    on Feb 10, 2011 in rant pacing music
    Wanna be like this guy? Let's face it - running alone is some serious poop.  It's boring, even with an iPod (FACT: the Chariots of Fire theme song does indeed get old).  There's also no one else to bounce thoughts off of besides your own cy...
  • Running for Tension ReleasePhoto Credit: darkchild69 of Flickr I had a regrettable and not so great Friday night.  This morning I woke up feeling quite literally like a dried up piece of shit.  You know that kind of crumbly dog shit you find in parks during the summe...
  • Another Post-Run Rush? Yes, Please!Just LOOK at that beautiful sunshine! Today I just had to go running.  I've kind of promised myself that I'm going to run at least 5 times a week to get in better shape for Track, which now starts in just under a month.  And today we miracu...
  • Boss Runner's High & ShoesThis evening I did a hill work out.  I ran up this 250-300 meter segment of a hill at like 800 race pace.  The hill grade was probably about 10% or so.  To my amazement, I convinced my lazy ass to do 4 of them!  But the best part...
  • 15-Year-Old Sprinter Hannah CunliffeSo after getting a lot of organic search engine traffic from this post about Duane Starkenburg, I decided that posting about local running news every now and then could be a good thing for my blog.  Therefore, today I'm going to post about Hanna...
  • Greenlake RunToday in my lifting/conditioning class we were to run around Greenlake (on the inside path) for our semester final.  The inside (paved) loop is 2.8 miles and to get an A we had to run it in under 25 minutes.  Which wasn't a challenge at all...
  • Woman Runner Attacked in Lincoln Park!
    on Jan 26, 2011 in news lincoln park
    Duane Starkenburg, the suspect Lincoln park is where Roosevelt's XC team runs quite a bit for meets.  I know the park well (especially the portion that contains the 5k course) and have mentioned it in past blog posts: here and here. Apparently...
  • Not Where I Want to Be...Today in my lifting/conditioning class we ran a mile.  I decided to give it my best today, after last week I had gotten over 10 minutes on the mile (my pinched nerve was preventing me from going much faster).  I got 6 minutes flat on the mi...
  • Stereotypical Portrayal of Runners (in The Office)
    on Jan 22, 2011 in stereotypes television
    I had forgotten about the Office episode, Fun Run, where Michael sets up a charity 5k for rabies awareness.  Or I would have blogged about it sooner (I absolutely LOVE The Office, I've seen every single episode in order).  Anyway, the 5k wa...
