Oh man that looks a lot worse than hitting a wall. They've got to have gone through the wall and be super low on body fat as well. Fuck. That.

Sorry mang, Sunday your time is Saturday over here and Saturday here is Digital Dreams Festival with Steve Lawler, Richie Hawtin & Guy Gerber live.

I'd love to run a mara but I think I'll enjoy these guys on the beach in Toronto instead.

Nope, it has to be hideous. Problem is, the hipsters bought them all already. I found a few foul old granny ones, but they were all about $9 & that's just a bit too much like actual shopping.

I'd buy more. True story.

Went to see my osteopath today. He's run 11 marathons & his PB is about 2:50. Mad.

He was supposed to do this one, but got the beginning stages of a stress fracture & took some time off.

edit - I don't check in luggage like that. Hand luggage all the way.

I'm the innovator, you're just an early adopter. Sure you are an opinion leader and have more direct influence over a greater number of people, the reality is you are just following me. I knew the diffusion of innovation theory would come in handy one day. For the record Brenny is a laggard, not because he was the last to pick up on it, it's because he is so god damned slow

1 every hour, so 3. Debating whether to take one beforehand, which would make it 4. Also taking electrolytes & BCAA & Carnitine beforehand, like I do for long runs.
