Discomfort Zone Big Training Day - Sunday January 28, 2007
Bay Rock!! (and Sons) Run in Houston
Our North Bay Rock!!, Tim Uuksulainen returned
to marathoning once more when he travelled to Houston, Texas
to compete in the Chevron Houston Marathon. His son's Erik and
Kiefer went along for the trip and dutifully ran the 5k...fast.
Tim writes: I thought
my marathoning days were behind me but I got convinced to try
and qualify for Boston at the beginning of November with a target
of running the 35th Annual Houston Marathon on January 14th.
I'm happy to report that I made the 3.45 cut-off with a 3.2711.
With only a few long runs i had been concerned about bonking
but I ran both halves of the race within 25 seconds of each
other, so even pacing rules the day. We really lucked out with
the weather, The day or two before it was 22-24c and quite humid.
The race day temperature was 13c and overcast, although still
humid. It poured rain about 8 hours after the race and temperatures
dropped to 5c as we just avoided the major freezing rain storms
that hit the mid and south west last weekend. Ryan Hall age
24 of the U.S became the first American ever to go under 60
minutes in the half marathon with an eye opening 59.43. If anyone
is ever looking for a good marathon or half marathon in January,
I think Houston is the best choice.
My son Erik placed 6/2000 in the
5km and Kiefer was 149/2000.
Hall Breaks U.S 1/2 Marathon Record in Houston
Ryan Hall, 24, won the Aramco Houston Half Marathon, a USA Championship
on Sunday January 14 in 59:43, a U.S. record, a full 72 seconds
below Mark Curp's official U.S. standard. Hall had set a U.S.
record of 57:54 for 20k in October at the World Road Running Championships
in Debrecen, Hungary, where he finished 11th; he had won the USA
20K Championships in New Haven in September. Hall won the 12k
at the 2006 USA Cross Country Championships in February by 27
seconds over runnerup Jorge Torres. Hall was the 2005 NCAA 5000-meter
champion while at Stanford and has a personal best of 13:16.03
for the distance. He was a national scholastic mile champion while
in high school in Big Bear, California. He is married to Sara
Hall (formerly Bei), another former Stanford star and now a top
U.S. runner in the 1500, mile, 3000, and 5000. His younger brother
Chad won the 2006 Foot Locker Cross Country Championships.
The current Male World Record Holder
is Haile Gebrselassie:
TEMPE, Ariz. January 15, 2006--
Two-time gold medallist Haile Gebrselassie, from Ethiopia, shattered
the world record in the half marathon with a time of 58 minutes,
55 seconds at P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll Arizona. He lowered the
mark by 21 seconds (previous world record 59:16, Kenyan youngster
Samuel Wanjiru). Gebrselassie also broke the 20K mark, running
55:48 at that point, giving him two world records and a career
total of 20.

Big Training Day - Sunday January 28, 2007
Dear Fellow Triathletes and
The initial response to our first ever Discomfort
Zone Big Training Day on Sunday January 28
has been excellent, and it looks like we will have a great
mix of new athletes and experienced veterans enjoying
a fun day of multi-sport. The event is filling up quickly,
so reserve your spot now!
A few updates:
1. Unfortunately, it won't be possible to rent spin bikes
for the event. This means you need to bring your own bicycles
and stationary trainers for the cycling session.
2. Since we will be cycling on the carpeted floor of the
Banuk Lounge, it is mandatory to have a beach towel under
your trainer to catch any sweat that drips down (and yes
you will sweat!). Please bring enough towels for yourself
and your bike.
3. Lunch will be provided at this event. Please let me
know if you have any allergies or special dietary requirements.
4. Sunday's schedule is listed below. If you are interested
in skipping or shortening the morning swim session to
accommodate a longer bike ride, please let me know and
we can try to offer that option.
5. We are looking into offering a bike fit analysis service
as well. This would also happen at the same time as the
morning swim session. Please let me know if this would
