Introduction I've been a passionate runner for over 15 years and started coaching recently and have loved every minute of it. What inspires me most is seeing people 3,6, or 9 months ago who could barely run a few miles run a 10K, a half marathon, or even a marathon! Above and beyond doing something amazing physically, many people are inspired to pursue other goals and dreams as a result. If I can facilitate this or act as a catalyst, I've done my job. I've been looking for an avenue by which I can write about some of the events and issues in the running community at large that might be of interest to passionate runners like myself. While I may occasionally talk about training methods, that's not really my focus on this blog.
Interests Running, Film, Wine, anything that qualifies as absurd
Favorite Movies Waiting For Guffman, The Opposite of Sex, The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra, Blade Runner-The Director's Cut, The Planet of the Apes (the one with Heston), Lolita(the Kubrick version), Gattaca, and several others depending upon my mood.
Favorite Music Air, Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes, Ryan Adams, The Flaming Lips, The Doors, Ben Folds(with or without 'Five')
Favorite Books Running With The Buffaloes, PRE, Rebels on the Backlot, Down and Dirty Pictures, Easy Riders, Raging Bulls, anything by David Sedaris
