One month after 100 miler

Aloha Everyone,

I can’t believe it has been a month since I ran the Rocky Raccoon 100. My original plan was to take 2 weeks off and then get back to training. As it turns out, I needed a little more rest. I started to put in a few runs between 2 and 7 miles and I was feeling ok. My hip was still stiff afterwards and it progressively started getting worse. So I finally went to see my Doctor, who happens to be a very good marathoner, and he sent me for an MRI. I must say, the extra week of rest has been tough on my head, but probably the best thing for my body.

I just finished up the MRI and I am hopeful that the results show that I am ready to get back training…

A couple of high points during the past month…
1) I had a great 7 mile run with Fred on 2-24. I felt energized and cranked up the hill on Pahoa.
2) I am doing some private coaching and I have my first athlete. He is very talented and has the desire to run really fast—should be a fun project! We put in a nice 5 miler last week together and looks like we may also do some training together in the near future. It will be great to have somebody to train with on a regular basis.

Hopefully, I get some good news from the MRI and I am back running this week. Thanks everyone for all the support.

More to come….




  1. Glad to hear you’re recovering and back at it. I hope the hip issue is nothing serious.
