Month 2 of marathon training. Hit 137 miles in December and am on pace for the same this month. Had to miss a few runs because of snow and ice.
Worst part so far is the runs in single digit wind chills, it leaves certain areas feeling frozen.

I was living in Massachusetts when I trained for my first marathon back in 2002 (Country Music Marathon)... the race was end of April so I started my training in January... the WORST part by far was trying to motivate myself to run on days when the temperature was below 32F. Nothing worse than bundling up, overheating, shedding clothes and yes... freezing those gentle areas!

I had a 90 yard touchdown run called back for a penalty in varsity football.

We have a 7 leg multi sport relay race in town, The Ski to Sea. It's been around for like 40 yrs. Race publications refer to it as the Grand Daddy of all relay races.

It starts on Mt Baker at probably 5000' el with a 5k cross country sprint.

They hand off to the 2nd leg, a combination run up 800' vertical in snow carrying your skis, then downhill ski.

Handoff to a runner for a 9 miler down the steep mtn road.

Runner hands off to a road biker who rides an awesome 38 mile route down the mountain.

Rider hands off to the two man canoe for a 30 some mile paddle down the river.

Canoe hands to mtn biker for a short (I was 80th out of 450 at 41 minutes +-) who crosses farmers fields, a little bit of easy non technical single track, some beach, into the Bellingham harbour to hand off to the anchor leg, the sea kayaker.

The kayak leg is basically a 5 k sprint, just long enough to win or lose the race in. I've always done the kayak leg except for two years of mtn bike leg.

I'm not much of a race guy, but it being a relay makes it so much more fun because you often get to pass a lot.


People come from all over the world for this race.

Seriously, if any of you want to get on the site and join a team that's looking for a runner, you can stay at my house for the weekend. Your team will car pool you up and down the mtn for the race.

Runners love it because it's downhill and they tend to get their fastest times ever. It's hard on the knees, so they hand off at the end of their leg then run and jump into the icy cold Nooksack River to enhance recuperation time.

I've got some really great stories from my Ski to Sea races over the years.

There are always teams at all levels of competition looking for someone to complete there team, so finding a good fit is not too difficult.

Thanks. Day 2 of recovery and I'm still pretty sore. Going up and down the stairs is the worst right now
