It's getting close! Are you getting nervous yet? Checking the weather forecast every hour?
|The talent/practice debate and altitude|
by Ryan on Monday, November 17, 2014
Sorry this is a little late. About 2 hours before I intended for this post to appear, I came across one of the links included in the altitude portion that caused me to rewrite part of this. I didn't want to post without it, though, as I felt it gives a more complete picture of the topic.
|Seattle Marathon: 17 days to go!|
by Ryan on Thursday, November 13, 2014
Here we are, only 17 days to the Seattle Marathon! It's hard to believe all the work that has been done, all the miles run by the thousands of runners who will be lining up just 17 days from now to take on the streets of Seattle. If you're one of those runners, though, this is a tricky time. So what should you be doing?

What's really going on when you're stretching?
|Seattle Marathon preparation: 24 days to go!|
by Ryan on Thursday, November 6, 2014
Over the coming weeks, I'm going to focus my Thursday posts on the Seattle Marathoners I'm coaching and who simply want to follow along to get some helpful tips as they go through the final preparations for their big day. The marathon and half marathon are on November 30th, the 5K is on November 29th.

|Barefoot/minimalist running, carb loading|
by Ryan on Monday, November 3, 2014
This week, I'd like to focus on two topics. One that has been around for years and is dying down and another that has been around for decades and is still going strong.

Another recovery post? The last one...unless I get more questions.

Believe it or not, I didn't feel like I had a ton of great material that demanded a Monday post last week. I have a couple interesting things this week, though.
|Why such long recovery?|
by Ryan on Thursday, October 23, 2014
Last week, I wrote about how to recover after your final race of the year. However, I kind of glossed over why. I mentioned the physical and psychological demands taking a toll on anyone but I didn't delve into these issues. I was privately called out on that so here it is. Why spend a month recovering, even if your race was shorter than ...0 comments | View Entire Post
|Race report: Going for 19 straight years|
by Ryan on Saturday, October 18, 2014
As those of you who have been reading my race reports for any time know, one of the things I'm very proud of is my streak of going under 17 minutes in a 5K every year since 1996. A little background. For me, going under 17 minutes was a big deal. My early years as a runner were pretty inauspicious. As I first started, a sub-17 5K would seem impossible. Doing it for 19 years in a row? Forget about it. What I did have was the ability physically and mentally to push hard in training and a body that ...3 comments | View Entire Post
