For starters, my name, The Red Kenyan, is dripping with irony.
This blog is a document of one average runner's struggle with the marathon, and distances beyond.

I've been a bad boy. No running for nearly a week. We went to visit family for Christmas, and though we brought running clothes, they were never used. We did, however, get in a leisurely 4 mile hike on the famous Dipsea Trail in the Muir Woods. So beautiful! I'm trying to convince myself that the rest did me some good, and in reality, I'm sure it did, I'm just not sure I needed nearly a week of it... oh well.
So, today's run was an easy 1 hour (58 minutes to be precise) and I ran almost 7 miles in that time. I averaged a 8:30/mile. It felt good to get out and run. It does my soul good.
