The world lost an incredible mother, wife, daughter, friend, attorney, underprivileged advocate, and community member suddenly and unexpectedly on October 16, 2013. In honor of my late wife, Holli Wallace, I am training for the Hallucination 100 mile trail run and raising money for the Children's Grief Center of the Great Lakes Bay Region.

My training progress

Tuesday, August 21, 2007


Well, I think I'm past whatever was bothering me last week. I did a short six mile run on Sunday, which felt okay. I did seven miles yesterday at a pretty decent pace for me (9 minutes/mile). Of course Elliott was in day care so it was a rare run when I didn't push the stroller at least part of the time. I'm still planning on capping my training with a 35 mile run this weekend. After that, I'm calling myself ready and eating carbs like crazy for three weeks amidst relaxed runs. In honor of the start of school, I'm working on a post titled "The Sociology of Running Shoes." Look for that soon.

Glad to hear you are feeling better - nothing like doing sports while you're sick to rush the junk out of your system.

I'm starting to worry a bit about this chicken-scissors obsession. If I could use a sewing machine, I'd make a stuffed chicken-scissor thing and send it to you for inspiration. :)
