For starters, my name, The Red Kenyan, is dripping with irony.

13 Miles on the Road
Yesterday's 13 miler went all right. I averaged about 8:10/mile. I had a problem with my sinuses, even though I took a benadryl beforehand. I was pretty sore afterwards, and the ice bath helped some of that. The roads beat me up more than the trails do. Today, I'm resting and the sinuses are giving me grief AGAIN. It's tough to get into shape when I can't eat properly and refuel after my workouts. Frustrating.
