A donation as little as $10 will get you in the pot for next week's drawings, and will help support young female runners in Ethiopia. You can donate here!

PS Why has no one ever told me that San Diego has PERFECT weather? Apparently all the time?? This is a runner's paradise...

I was just outside San Diego in La Jolla for a week last summer and it was amazing. I felt like I could run miles and miles in that weather!

Hope you are getting lots of money in...

My prediction... You wont be able to walk, or injured for life, before you ever hit this goal... The choice is yours!

P.S. I question how well educated you are in running reading through your blog, if you were well educated, you wouldn't be experiencing all these ailments. I have ran for 20+ years, including marathons, and have never experienced an injury

Just curious, Ralph...how many marathons have you run and what is your PR? Weekly mileage? No runner worth his or her salt would be so condescending/discouraging to another runner.

Jen@runfortheboys said...

Are you trying to be helpful or hurtful?

ralph cline said...

This isn't the time to throw out Pr's, if I was condescending, I would have thrown out times... I can run well under a 3.25 marathon, only run 30-50 miles a week and participate in long distance triathlons. I commented because it's people that are performing well over their capabilities that are constantly writing about injuries. Running a 2.43 is more about human physiology than hammering out hundreds of miles and running paces that put constant strain on the body which result in injuries.

Ralph - I am not sure what you mean by "constantly writing about injuries" and "all these ailments" - I have been training hard and racing for several years and this is my first injury. I have a great sports PT and an awesome coach - neither agree with your "prediction" that I am going to be injured for life/unable to walk. Even the very best runners in the world deal with injuries - it is part of sport and part of being an athlete. It is great for you that you have been so lucky and have never been injured. I am not sure why you felt the need to be so negative and discouraging here today - luckily most runners have a much different attitude.
