I put some new shoes on…

Well, it seems like the new shoes and inserts might have done the trick! I ran 3 miles on Sunday morning and I still feel good. I didn't have any pain during the run or after it, despite a 3 hour trek around local neighborhoods looking for our first house. I'm running 3 tomorrow to […]

Sweet Temptation

Yesterday I bit the bullet and bought my new Nike Air Structure Triax 10 running shoes and some other bits and pieces. The running shoes are now in yellow and black, an upgrade from the red and black accents in the last pair. Super Feet have also released gender specific orthotic inserts so I bought […]

Peronial insertional tendonitis

I've been experiencing a sharp pain on the outside of my left foot along the bone since the marathon and I just looked today to find a potential name for my problem. Ten google searches later I found a good forum post where a runner described the same symptoms. A forum visitor responded to explain […]

Nike+ iPod Nano Sensor: Low Battery

I remember reading the instruction book when I bought my Nike+ sensor that it would eventually die but I had no idea it would be so soon. I have to confess I never turn off the sensor and have run over 531 miles in the last year with it so it has certainly taken a […]

The History of WalkJogRun

I was just asked by a local magazine, Windy City Sports, to provide some information about WalkJogRun for an upcoming article. As I was writing it I thought it might be good to share the information with the visitors to the site: WalkJogRun was a personal project back in 2003 when I started running with […]

Done with the San Diego Marathon!

After months of training I finished my second marathon in 5 hours and 49 seconds on Sunday June 3rd in San Diego. Anyone who has read this blog for over a year will recall that this was nearly an hour slower than my time last year in San Francisco but lets go back to the […]

Get 'er done! 20 miles complete.

I've just returned from the longest run of my training for the San Diego Marathon and I'm thrilled to report I made it all the way around with no walking. Ok, I walked the last 5 yards to and from the water fountains along the way but I got it done. That was the message […]

Wow I'm wiped and introducing Podrunner

This morning was my 14 mile run with Team in Training as part of my preparation for the San Diego marathon in June. I've been good so far with my training – since February I've missed just one actual training run although my optional cross training days have generally remained optional :-) Of the cross […]

Training Diaries for WalkJogRun

I've managed to put off my procrastination and worked through a very important piece of the functionality for WalkJogRun's newest feature. Within the next few weeks I'll be launching a limited beta of the training diaries for WalkJogRun. I've been putting this off for well over a year but I have turned the corner in […]

Still running but less blogging

Things have been hectic around here, so much so I've not had much time to blog. So when Melissa showed me the “no blog entries available” message on her screen I felt like I should post something. The response to my Team in Training fundraising campaign has been overwhelming with over $1900 raised of $3900 […]
