GU Giveaway!

I haven't run a step in 2012 and I don't expect to start anytime soon due to my current injuries.  This lack of training has left me with an abundance of gels that are just begging to be consumed. My loss is your gain!  One lucky winner will receive an assortment of delicious vanilla, chocolate and strawberry GU energy gels.  OK, I have to admit they're not as yummy as a turkey and cheese sandwich at mile 30 but they will get you to the next aid station or help you through a long training run.

The contest rules are simple.  Just leave a comment here letting me know you want in. Your name will go in a hat (or maybe a box or on the kitchen table) and one lucky winner will be drawn (in about one week) and announced here.  That's it.  Anyone that amuses me with a clever comment about why they love GU gels will get and extra chance to will.   If you win just shoot an email to me with your name and address and I'll get these off to you pronto.

Good Luck!

Winter Lost

It only takes a quick glace at my 2012 training log to notice a common thread:

Number of Runs = 0
Weekly total = 0 miles
Monthly total = 0 miles
Year to Date = 0 miles 

You get the idea.  My year so far has been a big fat "Zero." It's not the weather that has kept me from running.  Lack of snow and mild temperatures has made this the best winter to train in the past few years.  It's sacroiliac joint dysfunction that has me cranking out goose eggs day after day.   On the plus side I've had plenty of spare time to read several books. Most have been written by AT thru-hikers which only adds to my feeling of wanderlust.  I know I'll be back on the trails again. It's just a matter of time.  My wife told me I need to be patient because I won't heal as quickly as I have in the past.  She said, "You're old now."

Thanks sweetie, "Happy Valentine's Day."
