Like I was saying (via Facebook)



The woods were lovely, dark and deep (also muddy and then snowy) but I had miles (13.1 of them) to go before this weird little medal (and, more importantly, bottle opener) I got for keeps. Eagle Creek Night Winter Trail Half Marathon in the bag. That's one.

Like I was saying (via Facebook)

The laughing eventually hurt my stomach. Old crafty Clint is probably laughing…all the way to the bank. Assuming he's not having another senior moment, debating a chair, and losing.

Force of habit



Illinois Marathon training always begins the same way, by putting one (cold) foot out the door.

New Year's resolution for 2015

Ask not for victory, ask only for courage. In your pursuit, you bring honor to yourself. But more important, you bring honor to us all. Let's kick some ass in 2015!

Relentless, or at least pretty consistent, forward progress

6 miles at 9 degrees makes an even 1,200 for the year, including 5 half marathons, 2 marathons, a 30-mile ultra and personal best times in the half, 10K and 6-mile. Not a bad year's work.

In the church of Al



Last night, a Swiss jazz trio followed by Dirty Bourbon River Show (the musical bastard child of Gogol Bordello, Man-Man, Tom Waits and a brass band) playing Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club. Not just the song. The whole damn album. Tonight, after warming up with the Hot Club of New Orleans, I felt the need.
