So here’s a more detailed rundown of yesterday’s race.  Kevin Starkes bested his previous half marathon PR by nearly 4-minutes, finishing 6th in 1:14:24.  We sent Kevin out a little aggressively since last year’s winning time seemed withing grasp if everything came together.  The good news is that it did, but the bad news is that the winning time ...

Less is Less

A few years back a friend handed me an article and said “until I got to the part where the author referred to himself as a good runner, I would have sworn you wrote this.”  Turns out that it was written by Jim Hage, a former Marine Corps Marathon winner.  (I only have a hard copy, but I thought the article was so good that I just retyped it and posted at to our website.)  While some of the ...
