Marathon stalker

My friend called me the other day to say her husband saw me flying down the Marina State Park bike path with my coach following me closely on his bike. I said I was running marathon pace, about 5 minutes 30 seconds per mile, and it was one of my last workouts before starting to taper for the big day. Years ago, I used to have people drive by and say, “Do you know there is a strange man following you?” I even had a cop stop Sev one time while I was doing road workout to make sure he was not stalking me. Though I am tempted to say. “I’ve never seen the guy before” just to add some excitement to our day, I have resisted so far. In fact, we have been such a fixture lately, that the cops wave or stop to ask how training is going.


  1. I absolutely love your blog. I am cheering you on in 9 days wahoo!!! I think you should say that you don't know the guy every once in a while ha.
    Good luck! I am doing a segment about you on my blog later today. I have been featuring different Olympic trial athletes and was hoping it was okay to feature you!

  2. That is awesome! :-)
    We'll be cheering for you next weekend, Blake!!!

  3. Thanks for the comments! This one was a bit of struggle to write seeing that everything was building up to this!
