    BlueZoo info

    Will be down for the Marathon Weekend and traditionally always ate at Il Mulino Saturday night. Received word a few weeks ago they will unexpectedly be closed and moved our reservation to BlueZoo. They said there will be pasta specials offered because of the race. Never been to BlueZoo - my...

    Philadelphia Half Marathon: Race Report

    First off, one of the biggest problems with this race appears to have been solved...finish line security. For the first time in the past 7 years, the finish line was completely fenced in and access was guarded by military personnel, thus no spectators backing up onto the course, clogging the...

    Run the Bridge: Race Report

    Once again did the Ben Franklin Bridge Challenge this past weekend - also known as Run the Bridge. As always, this was one of the best events in the Philly/New Jersey area. The race is so well put together - there are never any issues and it is always a fun group of people. The staging area...

    Skechers Go Run

    Funny thing happened on the way home from the Marathon Weekend...I was walking around the Orlando airport and came across the Go Run at the Skechers store. Checked the shoes out and they actually seemed decent - very light, thin, flexible sole similar to Nike Free. I regret not trying a pair...

    January Marathon Relay

    Did anyone else notice on the ESPN WWOS site, it lists a Marathon Relay - new for 2012? It will be interesting to see the breakdown and where the transition areas will be located. I'm guessing there will have to be more info available when registration opens in March.

    Bay Lake Tower or Kidani Village?

    Probably should be a post for Trip Planning, but I was hoping to get some input from runners who may have stayed at BLT for the Marathon Weekend. We've stayed the past 2 years at Kidani Village for the Marathon (my sister's DVC membership). We were discussing booking KV again, because it's her...

    Shoe recommendations?

    I just purchased a pair of the Newton Gravitas Trainers - my third pair of Newtons. I've tried about a dozen other running shoes, but I always come back to Newton. My key to running shoes is a low, zero, or negative heel to toe ratio and a less than 10 oz. weight. Saucony is marketing the...

    What's on your playlist?

    What are some of the songs on your playlist? What kind of music motivates you during runs? - Back in '06 they played music from a rare import CD called "Hyper Techno Disney" throughout the parks during the marathon - popular songs from Disney films remixed to a dance beat.

    Mickey medal

    The Mickey medal for the 2011 marathon has been unveiled. I wonder if the Donald and Goofy medals will be similar or if only the marathon will have a unique medal.

    Minimalist Running

    What are your thoughts on barefoot running? Anyone doing it? Anyone else running in Newton? The intention here is not to spark a debate, but get people together to talk about minimalistic running. After some injuries and chronic problems, I made the switch to a midfoot strike, based on...
