Thanks for gathering some brewing runners together. What's funny is that I'm also a former sprinter, turned short distance, turned long distance, turned marathon runner! What cool about it all is that when people tell me they can never run distance, I reply by saying that I'm a sprinter by nature, but have come to enjoy long distance running. It really is simply a controlled sprint for me. For each successive distance, I always try to run at the fastest pace that I can endure for the length of the run. It took some readjustment as the miles began to increase, but over the course of a a few years, I found out I could actually run far and maintain a solid pace. My marathon was simply an offshoot of training. It's like wow I just ran 10 miles, could I do 13??? and so on. I'd say pop a Jamil podcast in the ipod and go run for 45 minutes! Anyway, it helps release the stress from the day as well. Then have a homebrew on top of it and your day is awesome! Enjoy.
