Blog #14

Hey there friends, Blog #14 lets get going. wait! really? number 14 already? Wow, it seems like only yesterday I was just starting this little blog of mine. Back in the good ole’ days when I could blog about blueberries and other such non-sense.  But now here we are on #14 and I have to blog about real stuff, important stuff as to keep my audience happy. I mean come on, there is a dude in Russia that reads my blog, Russia! awesome! hey there comrade!
So in the theme of my serious, young adult of a blog lets touch on some important matters. Firstly, running. Yes running is serious and if you think otherwise…well you probably have an argument there. I guess in the grand scheme of things it isn’t that serious. But I take it seriously as do many other people out there. Alright, let’s carry on.  I have recovered well from nat’s XC and have gotten right back into the marathon grind. I’m loving this training.  I just get to go out and run a shitload. It’s quite fun.  Had a solid session of milers today to, it’s good to know I have some speed in these legs of mine.
Hey Wykes! congrats on busting that huge run at Cal International.  In case you were wondering what that was all about, Dylan Wykes hit a 2:12.39 to go along with an impressive win out in Sacramento last weekend.  It’s good to see Dylan run so well, we’ve been on a couple national teams together and always seem to find ourselves pushing each other in races.  He is also to thank for me not dying after the XC nats after party in 07, man, that was a rough night. I had 4-5 to many Jager Bombs and passed out mid-pee in the bathroom. I was promptly kicked out of the bar and Dylan made sure I got safely. If not for him I probably would have passed out in a snow bank and died. So him (along with 4-5 other people) kept me from dying that night. Thanks Dylan, you’re top notch. Also big ups on the sweet celebration scream.  There seems to be a theme developing amongst Canadian marathoners after they rock an epic race, they must celebrate with an equally epic scream.

So much cooler than any race finish I’ve ever had.

umm…okay, now that we’re done with the serious stuff I wanna talk to ya’ll about something.  In Blog#12 I posted a couple youtube videos of sad movie deaths and asked you to vote on which was sadder.  Well this was a complete failure. This game did not catch on at all. This makes me sad, sad for two reasons. Firstly I wanted to have a little interaction here, I had a whole series of random movie death scenes that we could vote on. Sad death was just the beginning of a series. I had awesomest death, badassest death, funniest death and even sexiest death that we could have voted on.  Apparently this was a bad idea, I understand.  The other reason that the failure of the movie death game upsets me is because it was good filler.  You see, I’m running out of material here folks.  My life is not very exciting and I’m running out of stuff to talk about.  Looks like I’m going to have to go on a bender and do some stupid stuff so I can keep this blog rolling. Alright, gonna get on that. Out!

    love the captions on the pictures

  2. I concur – this blogging is tough stuff. Should I put some shameless self promotion in here? Answer: I just did.

    I love reading your blog, and I'm not even in Russian, and those pictures at the finish are great.
    How do you train in this snow and cold?

    Thanks a lot. Not gonna lie, I hate training in the winter. Just have to put on lots of warm clothes and bite the bullet. Also the pace may be slower on the snow, but as long as the effort is there the training is useful.

    Great pictures man theyre hilarious! Man I wish I read the other blog I guess I was too late, oh well I;m gonna say that one movie death popped up when I read this: the main villain's death in The Scorpion King. Most bad-assest death I've seen, watch it if you haven't

    Late comment to Blog # 12: I vote "B" for three important reasons: First, Mufasah died in a valiant fashion while saving his son. There was nothing valiant about the killings in LA turf wars. Second, the cowardly OG shot him in the back. Third, if Cuba had Dave Scott-Thomas coaching him he could have outrun the spray of lead. What a shame.

    agreed, those captions were awesome. Definitely made me laugh. Good luck on your upcoming Marathon next month. Looking forward to an epic finishing photo.
