    Does this marathon make me look fat?It was 2001. Exactly one year and 3 days after quitting smoking, a pack a day of true Cowboy Killers, Marlboro Reds no less. Most of you don’t know this about me. I smoked for years. I loved smoking. In high school we actually had a...

    The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner 🏅There we were, stumbling around the Gold Coast in the dark at 5.30am, her mum, myself, and of course 'my little girl'.  The fact that she's in her late twenties, married, and a successful career business women has nothing to do with the fact that...

    #43 I'll accept your gracious compliment also, Deb. But just as well I don't rise early very often. If I allowed the philosophical to take over, then who would bombard the rest of you with all these bad dad jokes? Well perhaps I can think of one or two dad joke diehards, eh @Praveen Raj Gullepalli, @Kevin Pashuk?

    "It doesn't matter how many times I watch the sunrise, each one is unique and heralds the start of each day with optimism, before our mental gymnastics diffuse this into a myriad of mankind's earthly moods."

    Some unusual morning exertions seem to benefit your philosophical side, @Ken Boddie And while there are lots of things our loved ones do, one of the most profound is getting us out of our own heads and routines - so we can take advantage of the fullness of life.

    What a wonderful story about 'your little girl,' @Ken Boddie! I'm so glad you posted a link on my buzz to this. You described the pre-race weather, dawning of the sun and yes, parental jitters so well. I understand the pride you spoke so eloquently of!! There is nothing like it in the world. When our kids are little we have such pride over every new accomplishment they make in life never realizing we will feel that way through out their entire lives. It's such a blessing. Good for your daughter, it's a big deal to run a half marathon, my son's wife participates in half marathons too. Her goal is to do a full this year. When you spoke of daddy's little girl, I could relate because I always get excited and yes, I worry when my son does these extreme races; as you noted, things can happen and parents never stop worrying about their children no matter how old they are. The early mornings are so much fun (even though I'm not an early morning person), and your description of the morning says it all!! Love your line, "The things we do for our kids - the things they do to themselves - but there again, the things they can achieve!" Yes, the things we do and we'd do it all over again, wouldn't we?!! I really enjoyed reading this Ken. Good for you and your wife. Your daughter is beautiful, by the way!

    #37 They crawl with our help, then they walk by our sides, then they run to seek their own race. Enjoy your time together, @Pascal Derrien.

    Long distance runners see races and HM and FM as a social events even though you are alone in the effort there is almost a mystical communion between all runners I run on my own mainly but see races as a disco for runners I am pretty sure your little girl was proud to have you around , my 10 year old little man did his first 5k race with me the other day when he raised money for a friend who cerebral palsy but one day he will be faster than me and maybe we will do a marathon together.....it is true that you were you are alone but rarely lonely..... :-)

    Come puoi migliorare la tua tecnica di corsa?Quando ho iniziato a dedicarmi al running, mi capitava spesso di sentirmi fiacca, le gambe appesantite, il fiato che mancava dopo brevi tratti percorsi. Normale no? Dopotutto ero all'inizio, il mio corpo non era abituato a questa attività. Ma era...
