What would your ultimate running-related accomplishment be? I don't know...I've accomplished pretty much everything I set out to do except finish up my 50 States (still have 30 out there to do). I'd like to get some ultras under my belt before I hang up my running shoes.

What is a dream running-related accomplishment for you in 2011? Just to be able to run a mile or two...and don't yet know if that is possible 2012? Be able to train for and run at least one spring marathon.

What is/are your favorite pre-race song (if you have one)? Don't have anything special...whatever comes up on my iPod.

What is your proudest running accomplishment? 3rd place AG in the Columbus Marathon 2003, 1st place AG in the Oklahoma City Marathon 2003...probably the best shape I've ever been in. I've gotten lots of other AG awards in small marathons, but am proud of the larger ones.

Who do you miss the most from the "other site"? I miss seeing a blog from Rhondda...I understand her situation and why she's chosen to keep her blog 'over there'.

What is the 2nd part to Dave-O's signature? Who said it? If you don't know, make something up...
Here it is if you haven't seen it - "That's all training is. Stress. Recover. Improve. You'd think any damn fool could do it." Legendary Oregon coach, Bill Bowerman. I had to look it up but now I want to read more about the guy. The short bio was awesome!

What, to you, is a high weekly running mileage? 75 to 100 miles...I wish I could do it. I've only gotten myself up to a little over 50 mile weeks when I was in shape and very driven.

When you were a kid (K-12), what was your favorite vacation? Going to Grand Lake with my parents when we lived in Oklahoma. We made multiple trips to Yellowstone Nat'l Park and the Tetons while we lived in WY, but that got really old...long line ups of cars because some fool wanted to sit and watch bears, elk or moose. Grand Lake and fishing was way more productive! If you never had one, what was your favorite summer activity? I LOVED playing outside...I was a forever tomboy and grew up in a neighborhood of all boys. Cowboys and indians...running like fools all over the place. Probably where my desire to start running at 42 yrs of age came from Very Happy

When you were a kid (K-12), what did you look the most forward to in going back to school? Seeing kids that didn't live near by.

What are you most looking forward to this weekend? Nothing...the leg is proped up. I'm waiting for Tuesday to get this darn plaster splint off and get into my immobilization boot. I'll still be on crutches but I'm hoping I can get into the shower instead of using the pet sprayer in the jacuzzie tub!

OK I know it's Saturday, but I'll try one of these.

What would your ultimate running-related accomplishment be?
It won't happen unless I can devote my entire life to running, but it would be going under 3:05 in the full. That was what I ran in Chicago in 1982 at the age of 25.

What is a dream running-related accomplishment for you in 2011? 2012?
2011 would be completing the 50 miler in the fall in a decent (under 9 hour) time.
2012 I have not evaluated yet since I'm focused on the fall.


What is/are your favorite pre-race song (if you have one)?
My tastes in music vary so it depends on what I'm listening to. Usually don't turn the ipod on until after a few miles, or sometimes not at all depending on the race.

What is your proudest running accomplishment?
I would say it was running with my daughter on her first race (1K in Green Bay) a year ago in May. It was completely her idea to run it.

Who do you miss the most from the "other site"?
I was never involved on the site so I didn't know any better.

What is the 2nd part to Dave-O's signature? Who said it? If you don't know, make something up...
Here it is if you haven't seen it - "That's all training is. Stress. Recover. Improve. You'd think any damn fool could do it."
Bowerman did according to Google, which knows just about everything. It's a great quote though!

What, to you, is a high weekly running mileage?
To see others pull off 100 plus is high to me. My best was 81 a couple summers ago. I'd like to break that at some point in this training cycle for the 50.

When you were a kid (K-12), what was your favorite vacation? If you never had one, what was your favorite summer activity?
Our family was fortunate to travel around the US quite a bit as kids. My favorite place looking back was probably Glacier Park in Montana.

When you were a kid (K-12), what did you look the most forward to in going back to school?
Getting out of school the following May. No doubt.

What are you most looking forward to this weekend?
It is actually not having to go anywhere or be anywhere. Sometimes I like laid back peaceful weekends the most.

Happy Friday!!!
Thank you John for the questions!

What would your ultimate running-related accomplishment be?

Well since I have knocked off running a sub 3 marathon, I have 3 new ultimate goals: 1. sub 2:40 marathon, 2. Win a big Ultra Race like JFK or Western States and 3. become a member of the 25 or more consecutive Boston Marathon finishers club (at 5 right now 20 more to go).

What is a dream running-related accomplishment for you in 2011? 2012?

2011- Finish strong at JFK 50 miler and finish in the Top 3 of AG and a Top 10 over all finish.
2012- Better my marathon PR @ Boston and to finish a 100 mile Ultra.



What is/are your favorite pre-race song (if you have one)?

Running Down A Dream & Waiting by Tom Petty, Saint Of Circumstance, Jack Straw, So Many Roads, Built To Last, Comes A Time, Help On The Way and Franklin Tower by Grateful Dead. Soulshine by Allman Brothers Band and Warren Haynes. One More Ride - Allman Brothers Band. Searchin For Soul - Radiators, Cortez The Killer - Gov't Mule, Night Of Thousand Stars, The Real Thing by Phil Lesh & Friends. Black Clouds by String Cheese Incident

What is your proudest running accomplishment?

Running my first marathon Chicago Oct 9th 2005.

Who do you miss the most from the "other site"?

I miss Rhondda wish she would post more over here. Kory because he is such an inspiration. MVW, I feel he would have a lot to offer to this running community also. Oh I miss having threads frozen or deleted because Hal want to.

What is the 2nd part to Dave-O's signature? Who said it? If you don't know, make something up...
Here it is if you haven't seen it - "That's all training is. Stress. Recover. Improve. You'd think any damn fool could do it."

Bill Bowerman

What, to you, is a high weekly running mileage?

For me with my training it is 100+ weeks. but for other I would say high mileage would be what one's body can handle week after week without breaking.

When you were a kid (K-12), what was your favorite vacation? If you never had one, what was your favorite summer activity?

Vacation would have been going camping with my dad, I also looked forward to Grateful Dead Summer Tour, oh heck I looked forward to any Dead tour!

When you were a kid (K-12), what did you look the most forward to in going back to school?

No more summer chores and Football season.

What are you most looking forward to this weekend?

Chilling out with my wife Lisa and hanging out on the lakefront with her and our dog Hana during our down time between runs. It's always cool being out on the lakefront looking back at the city especially at sun set!

Happy Friday!!!

An exerpt from a 2005 Runners World article - one of Bill Bowerman's speeches to his runners went contained this:

“Take a primitive organism,” he continued, his voice oil and sweet reason, “any weak, pitiful organism. Say a freshman. Make it lift or jump or run. Let it rest. What happens? A little miracle. It gets a little better. It gets a little stronger or faster or more enduring. That’s all training is. Stress. Recover. Improve.
You’d think any damn fool could do it, even…” He turned, squinted, went far away somewhere, and turned back. “But you don’t. You work too hard and rest too little and you get hurt...."

Probably something good to keep in mind for all of us (at least for me) - thanks for the quote, Dave!

Better late than never....

What would your ultimate running-related accomplishment be?
Winning a 100. Or Badwater.

What is a dream running-related accomplishment for you in 2011? 2012?
At least an AG win in an ultra (anything longer than a marathon). Sub-3 in a marathon.

What is/are your favorite pre-race song (if you have one)?
Speech from Versus (TV channel) promo commercial for 2010. "It's you versus NO!"

What is your proudest running accomplishment?
BQ.

Who do you miss the most from the "other site"?
No one.

What is the 2nd part to Dave-O's signature? Who said it? If you don't know, make something up...
Here it is if you haven't seen it - "That's all training is. Stress. Recover. Improve. You'd think any damn fool could do it."
You ask what it is then tell us? I'm confused. I forget who said it.

What, to you, is a high weekly running mileage?
For me... 75+. In general, 100+.

When you were a kid (K-12), what was your favorite vacation? If you never had one, what was your favorite summer activity?
Went to Africa for 18 days (Kenya and Tanzania) the summer after... 7th grade. Since I'm still a kid, currently it's camping. Preferably backpacking, or at least very minimalist car camping, but any camping will do.

When you were a kid (K-12), what did you look the most forward to in going back to school?
Seeing my friends/cute girls every day. I'm looking forward to the routine as well as getting very involved in the Deaf community up north when I go back to school in the fall.

What are you most looking forward to this weekend?
Had I done this on Friday, it would've been Saturday's run. But since I'm doing it Monday, we'll go to next weekend... Aileen's going away party. Well, I'm half looking forward to it, half not, since I'm pretty sure I'll end up shedding a few tears. But it should be a really fun gathering.

Happy Monday Laughing

Looks like we have the same ultimate goal and plan although I'll be somewhere else in the fall. Hopefuly we both can let it fly at Bayshore and get it done.
