This and that.....

3.28 miles today.  I continue to love running with no schedule in mind.  Go - run - enjoy is how I'm doing things right now.  If I want to run 3.28 miles, that's what I'll do.


For those looking for discounted running stuff, I almost always use Running Warehouse if I shop online.  Right now they are offering a 20% discount on gift cards.  They did this last year and I bought one.  20% right off the top.  I already know I'll be buying 3-4 pairs of shoes this year so the funds will go fast so if you want to get even better prices, go buy a gift card.  They don't expire and can be used on several different orders.  Hurry though, you only have until tomorrow.


You ever read Competitor magazine?  If not, go to your local running shop and they usually have copies there for free.  There's some good articles to read in it for a free magazine.


This year, once again, I'll be putting together a holiday gift guide of some of the recommendations that I've give this past year and in previous year to help for the runner in your life.  I hope to have this out by the end of the month but it's takes time to put together so it might be a bit longer.  In the meantime, feel free to read some of my past reviews of running gear HERE.


My 2013 race calendar is already filling up very fast.  Here's what I've tentatively got on the schedule and will likely be it for the year unless I win a race or do a race review for someone I was not planning:

  1. That's a busy calendar. I don't see Chicago marathon on there. And you have a half pretty soon after your full. You are forged of steel.

  2. Mark - I took off Chicago since I'll be doing Lansing. Only one out of town race per year. Yeah - I know Lansing is not far or the same as Chicago but hotel costs still there. Chicago will always be there.

  3. Hey thanks for the tip. I might just have to get a couple gift cards!
