I gave up long time ago on my dog as a running buddy. She’s cute but does not do well in running…
I have found an article about dogs for long distance running and I made a video about it. By the way these breeds are capable of doing ten miles or longer. Here we go…
I will do the next video for the others….

Part of my marathon training includes a few Saturday 5k runs.
The main reason is to get a feel of how fast I can sustain a target running pace on a short distance. This will serve as a good measure and/or benchmark on how to train, continue to train and finally run the marathon later on. Plus, it is always good to know how I stack up against others in my age group.
With adrenaline going on race day, it’s a challenge running on pace. There’s something about the crowd and the ambiance that gets you excited unconsciously. It’s very easy to get out of pace and most often than not when this happens a runner gets out of sync and fatigue sets in quick…a situation you don’t want to be, specially in long distance running.
Saturday 5k Runs Are Marathon Success Indicators
I do long runs on weekends and on this particular Saturday morning I happen to pass by a starting area of a 5k run about to begin in Balboa park.
My curiosity kicked-in and wondered how I’ll do after a few months of not much running due to knee injury. So I decided to run the course and to my surprise I felt good and happy with my pace. I love it.
There’s no marathon training on my schedule to date but this Saturday’s 5k run got going once again. I know where I’m at in my recovery and I can’t complain about my pace either.

We know that already — but do you remember the reasons why?
Timing Water Consumption For Optimum Health Revealed
Hydration is key for good health, but did you know that timing your consumption of water can be equally as important?
I have no clue. What I know is drink 6 to 8 glasses of water everyday. More if you are physically active – just like a marathon runner like me.
Numerous scientific studies have shown that drinking water at certain times of the day can optimize the health benefits. The video above (watch it if you haven’t done so…) explains when to drink your water for optimal benefits.
Here’s the short but vital list the experts recommend;
