New York City Marathon

My old friend Chris Kavanagh from Toronto is running the New York City Marathon this weekend. With a little arm-twisting he's agreed to guest-blog a pre-race report on Saturday and a post-race report on Monday so stay tuned. Chris is an amazing individual with an abundance of positive energy and charisma. He's a suit and blackberry guy in real life, but also a stellar runner in his off time. This race is absolutely on my list! In the meantime I must run it vicariously through Chris! You'll enjoy this powerful video of NYC Marathon. It captures the spirit of the marathon runners from super-elite to Joe The Plumber. I first discovered the video when Laura (Lucy's mom) ran NY in 2004. Happy trails and stay healthy. Cheers to you Chris, run like the wind! Mike

That would be a great one! Someday maybe. Good luck to Chris! I keep forgetting to ask about your calf. Is it doing well? Did you get to start back up again this week?

Hi Jen, As far as I can tell all my aches and sores from Minnie have gone. I start again this evening with a half marathon clinic. I've got my fingers crossed that the 1 month rest has licked the problem. See ya. Mike
