Tomorrow morning at 6am, I will be running the Disneyland Half Marathon for the first time. It has been just over a year since my last race (The Seattle RnR Marathon) and I’m a lil nervous. My training hasn’t been going as smoothly as I’d hoped, my shoes are beginning to break down but I can’t afford to buy a new pair, It’s going to be hot, etc etc. But I’m also excited because I will get to run through not only Disneyland and California Adventures but also Angels Stadium! At the end of the race I get a big medallion, a macaroon, and a hand job from Minnie Mouse. Can’t WAIT!

I’ll be running with Kim, who got me my entrance into this race for my birthday last year. Kim, you will finish faster than you can possibly imagine!

My nephew took up distance running recently and is hoping to finish in under an hour. You read that right: 13.1 miles in UNDER A FUCKIN HOUR. I hate him. Good luck you two!

I only have a couple of qualms and points of interest before you go and purchase your pair. (continue reading…)
I’m both a distance runner and a big, heavy boy. Two seemingly opposite qualities. How can a big, 6’1″ 195lb ginger boy run marathons without dying from body jiggle and breaking his own knee joints? I tell you, it has a lot to do with the shoes, running form, and lube. Lots of lube. (continue reading…)
