We are docked in Bimini before we cross the Gulfstream back to Florida today. LAND! Got to go for a run this morning. At the end of the dock I turned right and ran until the road turned into beach, and turned around.

I flew down to Miami for some hot weather training. Actually it is cooler than last year's Boston Marathon... And I'm lying, I'm down here for a work trip: scuba diving for Giant Ocean Tank fishes! I won't be able to run while asea (no duh) so I got up early before we left the dock and put in a 15-miler. Beautiful sunrise...

I am in Switzerland for a snowboarding trip. It's not a bad problem to have, but keeping up with my marathon training has not been easy. It's less than 2 miles from one end of town (Zermatt) to the other. It's not possible to run out of town (there are no cars here, Zermatt is only accessible by train or helicopter), believe me I tried. So the best I can do is run back and forth back and forth up and down up and down.  I've gotten in some miles, and even some hills, but really it may not be necessary - the riding has been epic and an amazing workout due to the powder.

Running along the Matter Vispa, with the Matterhorn in sight

Running down the hill (and back up) from our chalet, to get some hillwork in
