Speed Walkers

I saw a few speed walkers at the marathon. I would pass them, but if I did a walk break they would go flying by me. Which reminded me of the most hilarious video from Half-Fast's blog of a speed walker being chased by Samurai warriors. The Videographer asked if the walker was in a life threatening moment, would the walker run? What do you think?

Speaking of the blog we all love. Half-Fast is hosting a "Shave your 5k Challenge". It's a challenge to see who can improve their 5k time the best in 2008. Go check it out, it's pretty cool.

And Half-Fast also posted about promoting your blog on The Complete Running Network. I did and I think it's a great place to find other running blogs. Check it out.

Thanks Vanilla. I miss your blog for a week or so and I come back and find all kind of gold.

I'm planning to do Vanilla's challenge. Being as slow as molasses, I figure I have a lot of potential for shaving my time by next December!

P.S. How's your mom doing after her surgery? Hope all went well.

What a cool challenge. Perhaps that will by my thing this year, to improve my 5k time.

I love CRN. I've met two of their writers, Pink Running Chick Dawn - who ran the SDRNR marathon last year and Anne - who lives her in San Diego and introuced me to the running club!

Some of those walkers are fast!

I live to find useless videos like that. I'm glad you liked it so much.

I definitely want to shave off my 5K time. Great challenge.

I remember being passed by walkers in the New Times 5K. Crazy stuff!
