2015 Flying Monkey Marathon Race Report

Fri, 01 Jan 2016 20:30:40 +0000

Flying Monkey Marathon November 22, 2015 The Reaping Once the Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon became popular the race director moved to a lottery format to chose the stupid lucky participants. The selection involves a weighted randomization scheme and while I don’t know how the criteria is weighted, my belief that Question 8 has the “X-factor”. 8. … Continue reading 2015 Flying Monkey Marathon Race Report

Danger Days – 2 Days Out

Thu, 31 Dec 2015 14:23:27 +0000

When participating in a Running Race of any length, there are a few “Danger Days”. Days in which certain activities or lack of them can have negative effects to Race Day performance. Today is 2 days away from the Pistol 50k on January 2nd. 2 days away from Race Day is dangerous because there’s volatile mixture of … Continue reading Danger Days – 2 Days Out

This was supposed to be the first part of a series of updates on the my training for the Pistol 50k (31 miles) which I am running on January 2nd 2016 in memory of my late Taekwondo instructor/mentor James Rich. However, some how time marched on (and on and on) and so it is now a single … Continue reading Warrior Mode Update

Training, better late than never

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 13:33:05 +0000

This post was originally laying out, in general, my training regiment that I would use for the Fall Marathon season. That changed with my diagnosis of pneumonia earlier this month. I haven’t ran since 8/13, a week before the first signs of sickness manifested. I haven’t really worked out for 9 days, which was Taekwondo … Continue reading Training, better late than never

Monkey Wrench

Mon, 07 Sep 2015 20:42:43 +0000

My nemesis, Pneumonia, decided to pay me a visit last week and throw a monkey wrench into my life.  Thankfully, this go around is of the lesser impact type and can be treated with medicine and patience. I knew that it had been a while since pneumonia decided to show it’s ugly face. Using the search feature, I … Continue reading Monkey Wrench

Training Cycles Go Round and Round

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 16:00:31 +0000

I’m hereby officially “In Training” I have tossed in my hat in the weighted lottery for the Flying Monkey Marathon (11/22/15). If for some reason I do not picked in the lottery, my back-up plan is to run Chickamauga Marathon on 11/14/2015. It’s close enough that I can make a day-trip out of it, like … Continue reading Training Cycles Go Round and Round

Failure to Launch

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:04:33 +0000

Back in December, I laid out my plans for my running year 2015. I’m working on taking my planning capability for running and apply it to other aspects of my life, because I can plan out running in a year, yet I find myself asking, “What do we have to eat?”. 2015 was supposed to be … Continue reading Failure to Launch

Here Comes The Monkey

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 23:00:16 +0000

Getting to the start line of the Pistol 50k will require a lot of work. I’ll be building my training program for it shortly and will have some key milestones. One of which, I hope, will include the Harpeth Hills Flying Monkey Marathon. Entry into this race is a weighted lottery. “What is a weighted lottery?” you … Continue reading Here Comes The Monkey

Warrior Mode – Pistol 50k

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 23:00:31 +0000

It is with great irony that I announce I will be running the 2016 Pistol 50k in memory of Mr. James Rich. What better way to celebrate the life of a Non-Runner by running an ultramarathon? #WarriorMode

2015 Running Schedule

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 19:40:20 +0000

Since finishing the Quad Cities Marathon back on September 28th, I have been like a rocket ship with one of its engines not working. Running is one of my rocket engines. I will confess it is one of my larger engines where it should have a more proportional size to other aspects of my life. … Continue reading 2015 Running Schedule
