Mark...unless you have a time machine, you need to slow down and get some oxygen in your brain. Nice Feb 4-10 week.

I struggle to read the miles that Mark runs, and remember that my measly 6 miles a day avg is enough for me for now....dang Mark, your routine is impressive.

One day, I would love to hear you retell the story of your 24 hour american record...many runners like me weren't running when you did it, and I don't know much about it.

Wow, wow, and wow. I noticed that you list Patagonia as one of your interests. You might be interested in my blog, Patagonia Community, which is about Patagonia products, sales, and causes. Best wishes to you.
