Running Sick and Elite Help

So apparently I’m still sick, not so that I have to take of of work, but so that I’m having a hard time being myself.  I’m tired, sore, and gots no energy.  But I’m still trying to fight through it as the Rock n Roll Half Marathon is next week.  Problem is, every time I try to run, it really saps my strength.  And I definitely am more sore and take longer to recover.  It’s crazy.  I’ve had a hard time finishing my last couple long runs all together.  But I’ll keep on carrying on.

St. Pats is coming up and maybe some Guinness will do me good.  It always has before.

But other than that, the peeps we’ve been training for the half marathon have been doing great.  However we wanted to offer them some extra info, and to our luck, local elite runner Logan Sherman agreed to speak to our group.

Some of these folks are training for a race.  Some are training for St. Pats Day, ha!

Whenever I see Logan at a race, no matter the distance, I know pretty much everyone else is running for second place. Just the other week he won the Cowtown Ultra Marathon.  But he is also about to graduate as a chiropractor.  He’s very in tune with athlete’s bodies and has certifications in all sorts of treatments like ART.  So it was very cool that he came to talk to us.  He shared lots of tips about nutrition, proper warm ups, general health, and injury prevention.  He also took the next couple hours to answer any questions we had.  Very interesting and informative.

Getting some Q&A time in.  Also, when I look at people, I don't see color.

Why do I tell you this?  Cause I think we all need to take advantage of educational opportunities that are around us.  If you’re interested in something, seek out some experts and pick their brain marbles.  You never know what you might learn and how it may help you in your endeavors.

Long Run and Harlem Shake

So tomorrow is the last long run before the Dallas Rock n Roll Half.  I think we taper the next week, so that will be nice.  We’ve been training some runners who will be running their first ever half marathon, and I’m really excited for them.  I know they’ll do great!

In the mean time, when I’m not running, I’m a TV/Movie producer/editor/writer/shooter/director/actor/etc.  And a few weeks back we put together a Harlem Shake video.  I know what you’re thinking – Another one?!?!  But we think ours is unique as it stars senior citizens and a celebrity or two.  See if you can spot the celebs, oh and see if you can spot my cameo!

Here’s a hint.  The celebs are Burton Gilliam from Blazing Saddles, Honeymoon in Vegas, etc. etc., as well as family entertainer David Chicken, along with Mama Chicken.

Please to enjoy.
