Team Jamba Juice!

I found out this week that I was accepted to be sponsored and run for team Jamba Juice this year.  I am pretty excited about it and glad to be one of their ambassadors.  It has given me a new focus and desire to train hard which I think I needed.  Cant wait to get the gear and start wearing it while I train and race.

I was really tired and sore today, the last thing I wanted to do was run but I got in a really good tempo run on the treadmill.  I felt so much better after I was done, a lot more tired physically but mentally better.  Josh Cox once said something like you don’t regret the workouts you get done, you only regret the workouts you don’t fit into your schedule (He was more eloquent, but I don’t have time to look it up right now).  That’s how I felt today.

I want this shirt ——-v

If you are going to run the Denver Marathon and have not registered yet, the price goes up May 31st.

I got a pair of Saucony Type A2’s this week.  Haven’t run in them enough to review.  Pretty darn minimalist shoe, very lightweight and flexible.

That’s about it for now.  Keep throwing down the miles people!

RNR Arizona meet up

If you are running the PF Changs Rock and Roll Arizona in a few weeks you might be interested in an event that is being put on by the race directors.  If you go to the PF Changs at the Scottsdale waterfront (has that smell issue from the water been fixed yet?) on the 14th from 5-7 PM you will have the chance to mingle with Josh Cox, Ryan Hall, ultra runner Dean K, and many others.  Could be a fun event.  In fact, I think that I will be there myself.  Details are below.

“Mingle with fellow race participants and be inspired by Runner’s World columnist, John “the Penguin” Bingham, and running legends Ryan Hall, Josh Cox, Dean Karnazes and Steve Scott. These running celebs will give you tips on how to run your best race yet, while you enjoy delicious appetizers and giveaways throughout the evening.

Date: Thursday, January 14
Time: 5pm – 7pm
Location: P.F. Chang’s Scottsdale Waterfront, 7135 E. Camelback Road”
