After reading this article on legendary marathoner Bill Rodgers, I don't feel so self conscious about eating PB out of the jar daily.
Training is rolling along quite well at the moment. Feeling a good rhythm in all 3. Hoping to keep this ball rolling up to next weekend in Kelowna.

When you exit on the shores of Okanagan Lake to hear the crowds you have 4 minutes...
When your heart rate starts to sky rocket and your legs feel like rubber as you crest the bridge you have less than 4 minutes
When you mount your steed and start to hammer you have 3 minutes
When your trying to make that group just up ahead at the railroad tracks you have 2 minutes
When you see kids frolicking on knox beach while your body feels like it's disintegrating you have 1 minute
Then you see it...
It rises from the valley floor like a steeple
You have no more time
This is it
The acceleration you've been waiting for
This is where your race can change...
- In 2007 my race changed for the worse, in 2008 my race changed for the good....what will 2009 reveal?
You reach its top and feel the lactate flush....'wait I have to do that 5 more fu$King times?!'
- Matt Chrabot 2007 post race - ''Dude, that hill is legit!"
Yes, yes it is.
