Funny, I was just reading that article while my kid was in a focus group. You seem like an interesting character wondering if you ever crossed paths with old Malibu crew. That Wired article was pretty good.

After this blog post about my calf strain my physical therapist, Meredith Soelberg, sent this article from University of Maryland’s Medical Center regarding bromelain as an aid for tissue repair. I hit the local health food store and grabbed a high potency supplement, but knowing “whole foods win” I grabbed a whole pineapple as well.

If you run half-marathons, marathons, or longer, you likely have a favorite sports drink and gel. Personally I found Accelerade drink mix and Gu Roctane gel shots do the job for me (especially the gel with caffeine). But the irony of jamming my body full of factory-packed sugar during an activity I’m doing for my health, meanwhile striving for whole foods in the rest of my life, wasn’t lost on me. Reading about native American ultramarathoners in Born To Run fueling runs at insanely long distances with a blend of maize and chia seed got me thinking — do I need these expensive, scientifically-created concoctions or could I fuel my longer runs with whole foods?

After causing more trouble than expected yesterday by encouraging people to drop juice from their diet, here's a fall smoothie recipe to help you kick the habit:

California International Marathon is being run in a windy downpour this morning.  Good luck to everyone out there.  Wish I was there?  Not so sure...

"Pain seems to be a precondition for this kind of sport. If pain weren’t involved, who in the world would ever go to the trouble of taking part in sports like the triathlon or the marathon, which demand such an investment of time and energy? It’s precisely because of the pain, precisely because we want to overcome that pain, that we can get the feeling, through this process, of really being alive — or at least a partial sense of it." – Haruki Murakami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

I would run if it weren't for severe pain. Currently some hip/upper glute issues. Each impact step is like a knife blade. Avoiding pain is a natural human instinct that we try to overcome for the subsequent health benefits.

Damn. My hope is to run California International Marathon in Sacramento next weekend in less than three hours and fifteen minutes, which, as a forty year-old man, would be a Boston Marathon qualifying time. I’ve been training for months, have plane tickets and hotel room booked, have a shuttle booked to take me from the hotel to the starting line, my daughters, sixteen years apart in age at twenty-two and six, are planning to run the 2.62 mile run together. Should be an incredible weekend. Except for the fact that I seem to have a very serious calf strain and couldn’t run more than two miles this morning.
