Blast from his past

This week Blake's husband Jon Russell, who was once an elite runner himself, writes about taking on the Big Sur Marathon:

There is an old Saturday Night Live skit where Bill Murray playing an out-of-shape Hercules laments, “I’ve learned when unused, muscle turns to fat.” That scene played over and over in my head as the miles slowly ticked by during last week’s Big Sur Marathon.

Blake and I got to change roles last week as I was the one racing and she was waiting at the finish line. The only real difference is Blake dedicates 30-40 hours a week to her training where as I dedicated - lets just say less than that.
