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.

Last night, after a day full of auditions, I ran a 6 mile progressive run on the treadmill. I began with the first mile being run at 8:30/mile and dropped about 8-12 seconds per mile after that. I ended with the last mile being split up a bit. The first 3/4 mile being run at 7:45/mile, and the last quarter being run at 7:30/mile. All in all, I felt pretty good, especially given I tacked the run on the end of a busy day. Perhaps it was the chocolate turtles I ate before the run that fueled me to a good result. I would have added a bit of weights to the equation, but we had someone coming over for dinner and I had to get home.
