‘Tis the season to be sweaty, Fa la la la la… la la la la.

MONDAY TIDBITS

Hi Everyone,

Race trimmings.

Race trimmings.

Just a quick post today with two tidbits:

First off, a post mortem from yesterday’s race: The Santa To The Sea Half Marathon.

Yup, this was my last race of 2014… race #17 of 17.

My goal time for the race was simply to come in at 2:10:00 or below.

Fortunately, my legs didn’t let me down and I crossed the finish line with a whole 6 seconds to spare.

You can check out my race stats below. Read the rest of this entry

ONCE MORE, WITH “HOLIDAY” FEELING…

The holiday season is in full swing.

Run run Santa!

Run run Santa!

Between finishing up things with work for the year, holiday parties, Christmas shopping and planning for holiday travel, I’m one busy little elf. I have a feeling I’m not alone in this… am I right?

Well, ever since my crazy 3-pack of half marathons in one weekend back in November, I have taken things a little easy race wise. I had planned to run a 10K on Turkey Day, but decided to rest up. Even this last weekend I strongly considered doing the Santa Monica Christmas Run (another 10K) but again opted to hold off on pushing it.

Mind you I’m still running, as I continue to train with T2 in preparation for the Los Angeles Marathon in March. Read the rest of this entry

PICK AND CHOOSE…

Make up your mind, will ya'!

Make up your mind, will ya’!

Democracy is a wonderful thing.

Who doesn’t love that whole “Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness” deal?

We get the right to bear arms and arm bears (or something like that).

And we get to vote.

To decide the President of the United States.

To decide the winner of American Idol.

…And now to decide on the style and color of our race medals and shirts.

I’m sure this is exactly what the founding fathers had in mind when they told England to “Suck it” back in 1776.
