Not Dead Yet

I’m still alive, despite my lack of posting. I’m sure you’re all eagerly awaiting the photos from the 2011 Florida Keys Ragnar Relay, but you’ve waited a whole month, so what’s another week?

Okay, maybe I’ll drop one in just for fun:

Team "Why Don't We Get Drunk and Run" celebrates at the finish. From left to right: Sara, Yours Truly, Hunter, Raffi, Peter, Daphne, Irish Pat, Danna, Lindsay (hand in face - thansk Jim), Tim, Jim, Colette (hand in face - thanks Jim), Taryn. Behind the camera - Britt.

I’ve been a lot busy this week, but just wanted to drop a note for the millions two who are waiting to see my Guide to Running for Beginners. It is now live at So, on that note I guess there’s a bit happening in my life that I haven’t been disclosing:

1) I launched this week. The idea behind it is to provide an online resource to everyday runners. It’s starting out as a series of articles and columns, but will quickly evolve into a platform from which we’ll launch fun and educational offline events (destination races, running camps, team relays, etc). Tentatively, the first such event will be in late September/early October. It will involve wine, famous mice and an unlucky number of miles. Stay tuned for that.

2) I’ve been coaching a 300+ pound woman named Barb for the last three months. She’s lost a lot of weight, reduced her blood pressure, gotten off one of her medications and hasn’t missed a workout I’ve given her yet. Her first article about her experiences is here.

3) I took a position as Assistant Track Coach at a local private school. I’m in charge of the distance (1600 m and 3200 m) runners. I’m coaching a lot of great kids student/athletes and the practices have been the highlight of my day over the last two weeks.
