We are live!

They Valley Physical Therapy Group website is up and running! We are live, as they say! Check out the website here.

The weather system we have been watching must be a slow one because they are not calling for rain until Monday! The forecast for Sunday is now "partly cloudy" with 10% chance of precipitation, although we may have a 7 mph headwind. High of 54 and low of 35! It must be a big system because they are calling for 60% chance of rain on Monday in Las Vegas and Lancaster also.

For anyone wishing to follow us on race day there will be live online timing with splits at 6 mile, half, 20 mile, and finish. You just need to know your runners bib number. Mine is 6480.

I have shut down the running completely. I am done running until CIM. The reason being is that my right leg is very tight and sore for about 2-3 days even after a short run. I think I will be ok on race day but Monday and Tuesday will be tough at work!

Greg McMillan, coach of McMillan Elite in Flagstaff, AZ, just won the US Trail Marathon Championships in Ashland, OR for the Masters Division. He was 4th over all with a time of 2:54:50 (results here)! Read about his experience on his blog here. He just turned 40 and had not run a marathon since PRing at CIM in 2002 with a time of 2:31:59! Congratulations Greg, and welcome back to the marathon.

Flotrack is starting a new video series titled "Components of Success" which looks to be very educational and helpful for runners of all ages and distances. Topics will include core work, speed development, coaching, and racing. Stay tuned!

Nice website!

Henry Ford also said: "They can have any color they want. As long as they want black."

I know, random.... but hopefully amusing...
