The hazards of road running.

It's a bitch when you go out for a 7-mile run and you get knocked out by a flying dear at mile 5.

There is a nice 10 mile (round-trip) run from the base to Skyline boulevard. About 1500 feet of climbing.
Photosphere from the "Meadows" at Wunderlich Park in Woodside.  A beautiful 80F spring day in the bay area.  Not a single cloud in the sky!

This is one of the most beautiful 50-mile courses in the San Francisco Bay Area.  Who's in?

50k, marathon, and 1/2 marathon, 10k distances available.

My quads burn thinking about this race.  The best lines from the article:

I assumed their races are characterized by a mind-numbing sameness, but Walsham assured me I was wrong. “Some stairwells turn to the left,” she said. “Some turn to the right. Sometimes the stairs are shallow, sometimes they’re steep. And the number of floors always varies.”

Endurance exercise can be too much of a good thing for older folks, according to WSJ.  By too much, 15+ miles/week at 8 miles/hour.  15+ miles seem kind of paltry but the 8 miles/hour or lower should be easy.

A meal equivalent to energy consumed in running a marathon. The good news is that if you skip the extra serving of pie, net negative calories.  The bad news is you have to run a marathon.
Boy, when you put it this way, it doesn't make you want to run more, it makes you want to eat less, which I guess is the point.
