I’m a little depressed. I used to revel in talking about how slow, weak and un-athletic long distance runners are. I was certain I could out squat, DL, Fran and in anything under 400m, out sprint any marathoner alive. Then Brian Mackenzie happened. 6 feet 2inches tall and 185lbs.

What’s the saying among self help gurus? Tell people your plans so you are accountable and it makes things “real”. Well…I’m pushing like crazy to have a first draft of my book by Sept 23, 08. Nicki pinned my ears back and threatened my life if I don’t get it done…so here it is. Continue Reading
