Four Weeks....

The final month is here; just over four weeks remain until the big day where I will prove to both myself and my ultrarunning friends that I can actually pound the pavement when I so choose.

Will my stomach rebel? Will my knees feel like they took on a couple of baseball bats? Will my ass look huge in my running shorts?

Only time will tell, and the latter question might be solved by some preemptive purchasing at the expo the day before the race....

Mmmmm, Maffetone...

Training the Maffetone way has given great results to many runners, and I'm just one more of them.

I'll follow aspects of Maffetone, Daniels, Haad, and Jesse Leitner (a demi-god) to achieve a 3:30 in my first-ever marathon at San Francisco.
