I was looking for a training guide to the Gate River Run.
I did the math knowing it was about 9 miles.
Went to Hal Higdon’s site.
Choose training 15k and low and behold he mentions the Gate River Run from the start!

OK, so I am really enjoying running and had a great run yesterday.
Here is another good site to get you started.

Training – Marathon Training

run walk?

25 January 2007

OK, I keep hearing about this technique, but I am not yet a believer.  Any of the 3 times I have tried it, if I walk for a minute everything seems tight when I start back.

However, I have heard one amazing success story today that raises my interest.

The Last Key Run

25 January 2007

I ran yesterday from Key West to Fleming Key which is the last Key. 4.5 miles, 43 minutes.

Fleming Key is a military base so it is restricted.  I ran from Key
West to Fleming Key all the way to the Special Warfare Undersea
Training Area.

This is the place were it all started 9 months ago.  Last April 18th I ran my first ‘long’ run, 5 miles while on vacation in Key Largo.

Beside my self with excitement!!!!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I am beside myself with excitement!!!  I am moved.

I came home from the Pinewood Derby and found that yet another generous soul had donated to my race and put me over my goal of $5,000.00!!!

Oh happy day!!

Too Soon to Say Goodbye

19 January 2007

After work I ran down to the library and got out Art Buchwald’s last book.
Thought it was an appropriate book that he wrote about dying on the day he died.

I just finished reading it.  It ends with the eulogies prewritten.  Very interesting.
OK book, very light.  He is almost cavalier about death, light hearted.  My perspective may be off because I found this right on.  Despite his obvious agnosticism he holds death in a clear realm.

I have experienced quite a bit of death throughout life and it is a common thing to me.  I likely under appreciated his book because of this (although I did enjoy getting a taste of his humor).  I do appreciate that for many people reading this is the right introduction to death.  It is pallatable. 

It has always bewildered me how many people, even grown, havent been to a funeral, shun exposure to death, hide their kids from it.  It is a verboten topic in America.   If this is you, read his book.

Happy reading.
