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 got a quick 7 mile tempo run in today, and damn, if I didn't feel pretty good. I averaged 8:02/mile and 160 bpm heart rate. I don't know where the hell it came from, but I'll take it. I've gone on a few runs in the past week or so. I ran a 5 miler about a week ago, with an average of 8:45/mile and 164 bpm heart rate. I also managed to get a few gym workouts/runs in as well. I feel like I've got to get my mileage back up in the next few weeks, and then, starting November, I can start the actual training for the LA Marathon.
