Another Running blogger!

Hi everyone!

10 miles on the bike today.  I'm really liking the bike especially when it's the day after my long runs.  It's a nice recovery workout.  I used the Sony headphones I blogged about the other day.  Will talk about it when I post my review.


I wanted to give a shout out for a fellow blogger, Mrs. Hacker over at the Hacker Half Marathon.  She's been posting some interesting running stuff and better yet, she's from Michigan.  A great State in my humble opinion.  So, please check out her Blog and follow along if you're looking for another running blog to follow.  Plus, you're all probably sick of what I have to say.  :)

I personally find it very inspiring to see runners go through the training process and I learn from each and everyone of you.  My goal is to meet more of you in person.  It's nice to have the support of all of you out there online but human interaction is also nice.


Also, for those of you participating in the Virtual 5k.  Please email me with your times as you finish your  run.  You can e-mail me directly at detroitrunner(at) or you can post a comment on my most recent post.  Again, good luck everyone!

Question of the day.  What's your favorite pre-race(half marathon or longer) meal?

Have a great day and.......Keep Running!!!!


  1. I too am liking the bike more and more these days. My fave pre-race meal? Pizza.

  2. Great job on 10 miles! Hmmm...pre-race meal? I don't really have a set thing I eat every time. I usually try to stick with pasta-ish dishes. :0) Can't wait for the 5K!!

  3. Great job on the 10 Jeff! Pizza is my fav before a race, but I'm trying to wean myself off if it.

  4. Great job on the cross training Jeff! You are doing great!! I don't eat something specific before races. I try and eat something healthy without too much fiber! lol

  5. I usually go for some type of pasta. I'm not too picky as long as it isn't too heavy. Great job on the bike miles!

  6. Awesome job with the cross training! I am looking forward to the Virtual 5K!

  7. oh man...its been forever...i missed out on this new awesome layout!!! i LOVE it!

    thanks for the heads up on another michigan runner! yay for michigan :)

  8. Oatmeal is the fave pre-race meal, with a little peanut butter! :) Good job on the bike!

  9. Thanks Jeff, I can't believe how much better I feel just getting it out there - thanks for your huge part in it!!

    Do you bike outside or on a trainer?

  10. Jim - I can't tell you how much I want pizza but I stay away from it. Pizza used to be by favorite dish(when I was much heavier)

    Mallory - gotcha. Little fiber. Not good during a race, huh?

    Dawn - thanks for the comment.

    Terri - I can do PB but not Oatmeal(Yuck!)

    Hacker - you're welcome. Unfortunately inside. Too cold, icy, snowy for outside just yet.
