This certainly happened to Clinton Munkres — a new marathon runner residing in Lincoln, CA. Clinton wasn’t always a marathon runner. He became one through hard work and perseverance. In joining in a weight loss journey with his wife, Clinton discovered running, overcame type 2 diabetes, and (just recently) accomplished an incredible feat — going from 20+ years of living a sedentary lifestyle to becoming a couch-to-5K participant to finishing his first full marathon about a month ago.

Back from my break!

Been awhile since I have posted. Been busy with life in general. New updates coming soon with information on my latest races and subsequent injuries. Hope everyone made it through the holidays and the new year!

CIM or Bust! What have I done now?

CIMmapcolor_medium

Well, If running the Buffalo Stampede and joining Team ASPCA wasn’t enough for 2013, why not sign up for my first full marathon. Just a few days following my 45th birthday I will be running in the 31st annual California International Marathon. For those that know me, I ran my first 5K just days following my 44th birthday. A lot has changed in a year. My running has progressed nicely so far (knock on wood and shake the chicken bones). I already have one half marathon under my belt and hope to have another done in October. So wish me luck as I embark on another running quest. Hopefully the journey and destination will both be amazing.

Introducing: Just added races

Making Time To Exercise

Even with all of the modern conveniences of life today it can still be very hard for people to find or make time for exercise. Those who commute long distances to and from work can certainly attest to this. The United States Department of Health and Humans Services recommends that people get 150 minutes of physical activity per week at a moderate intensity or 75 minutes per week of vigorous activity. If you are guilty of skipping your physical activity try some of these tips.

1) Make a plan

> An old Staff Sergeant of mine used to say that “Not having a plan is planning to fail.” One of the best ways to make something stick is to find a chunk of time that you will be able to exercise and enter it into your cell phone calendar as a repeating event the same way you would…

Should You Train By Time Or By Distance?

Originally posted on u-VIB Blog:

shutterstock_123786298-631x421We break down the benefits of each method of training.

One of the most common debates in training is whether it is better to base workouts on time or distance. In the world of ultra races, running based on time is an accepted approach, even in competition. (In 24-hour races, the runner who covers the most distance in the allotted time wins.)

The popularity of using distance to gauge a workout might be due to the fact that most races are defined by their length. You’ll be hard pressed to find a training plan that doesn’t include specifics such as 400-meter repeats, a 2–4-mile tempo run or a defined-distance long run.

In hopes of shedding light on some of the differences between running based on time and distance, a recent study published in Medicine & Science in Sports and Exercise tested 38 children in a 750-meter run. While most of…
