Honestly, today's post seems unimportant given the events of last week. Our friend (and one of Jesse's athletes), Tom Golden, suffered a stroke while in the final days of training for Ironman Arizona. Tom is a great person, husband, and father, and a fantastic athlete. He was in the best shape of his life and was surely going to compete for a Kona slot this year. Click here to read more about Tom and to donate to his family in this time of need. Thank you for the support!
When I arrived at the Eugene Marathon last May, I hadn't missed a single workout in one year due to injury or illness. I had strung together two nearly perfect marathon training cycles, and was very confident that I could run a 2:42. It turned out to not be my day, but I'm happy to have built my fitness through a year of consistent training.
