Training Run Mar 20 Redwood Shores
Met Art a running buddy at Oracle
Tuesday, March 20th, 2012
I really needed to get in some miles today. I started off the day by running 6.2 miles up at Rancho. I ran easy. It was so nice running first thing up there in the hills. Then I met, Art, a running buddy I have known for over 20 years this afternoon.

Art works at Oracle and runs here a lot during lunch. We ran 3.5 miles today.
Art and I have run a lot of races together. Our PR's on many events are almost the same. However, Art has run a lot better times than me at distances of one mile or under.
Art just turned 60 March 11. He doesn't act or look 60 to me.
Heading back...it was a good run. I love these training runs.
After the run, we had a chance to speak with Art and get it on film for "A Long Run"

I lived in Redwood Shores for almost seven years. Great place to run but the wind can be a factor. I often felt I needed a sail.

San Jose Mercury News up coming article
Got together with Dan Brown this morning
Monday, March 19th, 2012
I first met Dan Brown, a writer for the San Jose Mercury News, new years day when we both were running the DSE 5k race in the Marina. My first race of the year. He later contacted me and said he wanted to do an article about this challenge and our film "A Long Run." Dan and I next met up at the Juana run last weekend. We ran the first mile together...hitting it at 6:30.
We got together this morning for an interview and photos. Joining Dan was Gary Reyes, a photographer for the newspaper.
After getting some images at the house, Dan and I hit the road. We ran my Hilltop three mile course. We talked the whole way as Dan recorded every word. We then talked more back at the house. The article will most likely be featured before I run race number 19 - the Great Race April 29th. Thanks Dan and Gary. Photo by Michael Anderson "A Long Run"
