The Weekend

I got in the 8 mile run on Saturday. I say run, I mean run/walk. In fact with the temperatures so high in Chicago we changed the ratio from 5/1 to 4/2 [run/walk] It wasn't as ugly as I was afraid it was going to be.

Sunday, I managed to take a day off and go for a 25 mile bicycle ride. I'm trying to build up my cycling. In the "old" days I did a lot of road cycling. I think it helped my running, and now I'm trying to get back into it.

I've got an entire week at home. Don't know what to do with the time! But, I'm sure I'll find something.

Waddle on, friends.

Hi John - Just found your blog. I see you are new to this world. I started blogging about my running last winter and love it. Like running it does become more habit forming.

We met up in Tampa (feb 2005) and chatted briefly. I was the one in pink (I'm always in pink) and you signed a large sheet with a penquin on it.

Anyways if you wanna see what runners in Calgary, are up to check out Dawn (aka Pink lady) at I will definitely add you to my "reading list".

Here's hoping you make it back to Calgary for another race.

Hi John, Dawn (the pink lady) pointed me here. Your books and articles have been such a great help to me, especially in the beginning when I spent so much time beating on myself for not being faster.

Welcome to the blog-world! Our blogging community has been my lifeline and got me back running after an injury - when I doubted I could ever be "a runner."

The RBF (Running Blog Family) convenes at if you ever want to pay us a visit.

I'll look forward to visiting you here. Enjoy your week at home!
