Been a while. Maybe it's time to fire this thing back up!

Marin Corp Marathon.  My big race of the year October 2012.  For the first time, I'm running for two reasons.  One and I need to train for "something" and Two, I running to raise funds for Diabetes.  Diabetes runs in our family... rampantly.

My fund raising website.

So sibs..what are you doing this year?

Great Quote of the Day:

The challenge in running is not to aim at doing the things no one else has done, but to keep doing things anyone could do—but most never will.

First 8 miles of 2011

were brutal.  But at least im finally getting back into the swing of running.

I also lost 5 lbs.  yay.  But we can thank a couple douche bag guys for that...  Focus, Molly.  Focus.

Training Begins....again.....

Okay -- Training begins again for me on Monday. Been sidelined with sick children. But, Chris' times are starting to piss me off. But, I'm not competitive or anything......As far as being the sandbagger -- not! Mean words, little brother! I wanted to do a 4:20 AND fell massively short. But, LA -- here I come. New Orleans is a mere stepping stone in my journey to beat 4:30. And, I KNOW, I can do it -- my running partner just finished NYC in 4:05. So, I'll be damned -- I can do it!! And, as proof -- Zac Brown just won a CMA for Free -- my Chicago Song. Just bought my new ipod since the nano completely sucked wind and failed me at my time of need. Nothing beats the simplicity of forward, reverse. Who the hell needs touch technology while attempting to run 26.2. Now -- the real question -- are we maintaining this blog or starting one for NOLA and LA??? Let's do it!
