Dog Run (or walk)

Please join members of SEHRC for a Dog Run or Walk on January 17, 2014 at 10:00 a.m.

The Dog Run will start at Questhaven Park, located at the corner of Hollowbrook Court and Questhaven Road in San Marcos.  We will travel by the Garden Trail to the Copper Creek trail and make our way to the San Elijo Hills dog park.  Once there, the dogs can be let off leash, play with one another and drink water.  After a bit, we will make our way back to the start.  Total distance, 2-3 miles.

This is a great run for beginning runners and we welcome runners with or without dogs.  Leashes are required.

Winter Solstice 20 miler

The run today was a preview of a portion of the course of the San Diego 50, which Chris, Travis and Vince are running.  I'm a big believer in running courses prior to racing, so we took a field trip.

There's not much to say about a run like today, besides it was awesome.  We started with eight, three went about 15, the other five went 20. The temperature was 48 at the start and it slowly warmed up.

The trails are nice and moist from the recent rains and the conditions were perfect.  This was also the first time we had a club run with our new jerseys, making it extra special.

It's fun to be friends with a bunch of guys who can go out and run for three hours and pass mountain bikers along the way.  I leave you with a photo essay of today's run - thanks to Charlie Sunshine for bringing his phone.

SEHRC Shirt Fest 2014 @ Stumblefoot

Shirtfest 2014 was the first club event that did not involve running.  Instead, we handed out club shirts and hats, drank beer and ate from the New Orleans food truck.

Stumblefoot Brewery, one of the club's sponsors, was kind enough to give club members a buy one beer, get one beer free special.  If you haven't been to Stumblefoot, check it out.  It's got a mellow, laid back vibe, great beer and I road my mountain bike right into the tasting room.

As usual, we talked about running and running shoes to run in.  Along the same lines, we are in the process of developing a pilot for a new panel discussion television show, called "Runners on Running."  Should be exciting stuff . . .

Denk RunRide 2014


Memory is a funny thing.  It's not always clear and frequently confused.  To wit, Denk RunRide.  Did I come up with the idea, or did Erik Dekold?  I know I came up with the name, but whose concept was it?  I can't recall, which by the way is an excellent deposition answer.  I think Erik and I both had an idea of putting on an event with runners and mountain bike riders and when we started talking about it, we collectively created it.  But Erik can call bullshit on that if he wishes.

Some of the fastest people on Earth
 From Conception to Execution

It's one thing to have an idea, it's another thing to execute.  That's what I do for a living.  I don't consider myself an attorney per se, I'm more like a problem solver, a fixer, a mechanic.  Many attorneys don't seem interested in crafting a solution, more like lemmings proceeding over the cliff of litigation.  I take the rock out of your shoe [wink at Kamran].  I make the problem go away.  I bury it in the Meadowlands.

Podium Spots - Coed Division
It's great to have ideas.  It's another to get it done.  Erik gets it done.  Erik sends me messages.  Erik emails me.  Erik motivates me.  He's quite good at it.  Once the RunRide was conceived, it had to be executed, I had no choice.  Erik may think I pushed it along, but having him in the background makes me push it along.  Chicken or the egg?  Yin or yang? 

At the same time as the idea was coalescing in our collective brains, Stumblefoot decided to become a SEHRC sponsor and offer up some beer.  The plan, and you know I can never say it enough, was beginning to come together.  (See

Continuing on with my overreliance on euphemisms, I wanted to strike while the iron was hot. Fresh off Erik's Turkey Hump and Dax's Peaksgiving, it was time to utilize the synergy and gain some traction (no pun intended, purely business speak puke).  Erik would rope in the riders, me the runners. 

Podium Spots - Overall + Sadist Solo Class
The Devil is in the details

First, we needed a course.  I had never designed a course before.  I knew I wanted one completely on trail that included a climb and limited riders and runners coming at one another.  The dump and Denk Mountain offered that opportunity.  With the exception of about 400 meters, the participants had no chance to cross paths with one another.  Box checked - it was time to pick a date. 

I knew we had to get it done before Christmas (can I say that anymore, or should I say December 25th?) or it wouldn't happen.

First Crush
The big issue was time of the start.  Apparently mountain bikers don't like to get up as early as runners.  But it had to be 7:00 a.m.  I had two futsal games to coach, incidentally the team won both with a collective score of 25-10, so anything later was no bueno (three years of Spanish for you).

To Facebook, Batman.  For the last 18 months, the club has been on Strava.  I resisted Facebook.  Erik suggested, I relented.  In one day we had 30 members.  In one week we had 50.  Okay, maybe I was wrong.  Strava, Blogger, Facebook and Instragram.  I'm still resisting Twittter, I just don't see the point - but check back in a year.  It's a lot of work to man four social media sites.  I need a Communications Officer, anyone as hot as Nyota Uhura, please apply, you will get the job.  Notice she's left-handed, that means she's smarter than you right-handers.

After a few days, we had four teams.  Great!  Enough to run the event.  Erik kept recruiting, and the teams kept coming.  On race day, 10 teams.  Awesome, this was a real event.

One last thing.  The afternoon before the race, I road down to the course with some high visibility tape and began to mark the course.  This was again a first.  I knew the course, as I had designed it.  But what of the person who had never run/ridden out here before?  I wanted their experience to be good, so I marked the crap out of the course.  It was a peaceful experience knotting tape to trees and poles as the sun set, out in the middle of the woods.  Call me Robert Frost.

But to run a real event, you need at least one volunteer aka timekeeper.  Lucky for me, bad for him, Greg Fall was that volunteer.  Injured, he was not participating.  This was also good, as he would've kicked my ass.  Greg took to the task with gusto and was Mr. Timekeeper.  Thanks Greg!

Greg working it
Before I knew it.  Race day was here.  When I got to the start, riders and runners were already assembling.  Wow, this is happening.  We even received two pairs of socks from the Sock Guy.  The race then started and soon enough it finished.  It went off without a hitch and smiles were all around.

Rather than give the prizes to the top finishers, Erik and I decided to award tickets based on finish, e.g. 10 tickets to first place, 9 tickets to second place, etc.  We then placed those tickets in a hat and drew out the winners, so everyone had a chance to win.  One crazy dude decided to run the course and then ride it by himself - we automatically gave him a prize - how could you not?

Big winners:  IPA
Winners of the much coveted socks
Beer please!
Winner, Solo Sadist Class
The SEHRC crew
The best part of the day for me was when Erik, Greg, Ibex and a few others volunteered to go back out on the course and clean up the course markings.  Awesome.

Oh yeah, Erik and I won.  That was awesome too.

Hoka Stinson ATR Shoe Review

I’d like to start off this review with a confession. I used to mock people that wore Hokas. “Look at those dorks wearing those clown shoes” was something I thought to myself more than once. I was a road runner having competed in numerous half marathons, 10k’s, and marathons dating back to 1994. I’ve logged my fair share of miles in traditional running shoes made by Brooks, Nike, Saucony, and New Balance. I was happy in those shoes, they worked well on the mostly flat roads that I trained and raced on.

Then something happened.  I moved to San Elijo Hills in San Marcos, Ca and started running the trails where it is virtually impossible to get a run in without either going up or down a hill. There are very few flat sections. At first I hated it. My feet hurt from the sharp rocks on the trails and my Achilles tendons were miserable from running uphill all the time. Then I developed a case of plantar fasciitis for the first time in 20 years of running. Running downhill made me want to cry. I experimented with different trail shoes. First was the Brooks Cascadia. The rock plate in them reduced the pain of running over rocks but that same rock plate made the shoe very stiff which I didn’t like because my PF always flared up in them. Next up was the Nike Wildhorse which was better but still not the answer. I liked the low toe to heel drop (4mm) and I felt nimble in them, but running over rocks in them was not fun. I could feel them poking into my tender feet, especially in the second half of my long runs. Plus they were not durable.

So eventually, I decided to give the Hoka Stinson a try after a local runner whom I respected raved about them. The Hokas proved to be a game changer. They have a 4mm heel to toe drop which I like and the oversized mid-sole and the extra cushioning felt like the running equivalent of a Cadillac. While stiff because of the mid-sole that has 2.5 times the cushioning of a traditional road shoe, I could run over the rocks without feeling them poking into my tender feet. The stiffness of the midsole is countered by a meta- rocker that helps move the foot through its natural motion.  The extra cushioning lessened the pain from my plantar fasciitis. In fact, my PF went away  while I was wearing the Hoks training for a 50k. This was a period where I was increasing my mileage! Now I could not only enjoy the scenery of trail running, but I could do it without my feet being in pain most of the time.

 My only quibble about them is the uppers. They tend to run narrow and I went through a period of getting blisters in them on my long runs. My feet are pretty calloused now and I've lost a few toenails, but now I don’t get the blisters. Sure my feet look more hideous than ever but it is worth it to me. I buy them in a half size larger than most my road running shoes and this helps overcome the narrow toe box. The other thing that is a huge selling point is that they are extremely durable. I have a pair that currently has 750 miles on them and they still feel pretty good. I am starting to be able to feel the ground a bit, but they work great on non-technical trails. I wouldn’t be surprised if I get another couple hundred miles out of them. I rarely run more than 400 miles in a pair of shoes.  All in all, the Hoka Stinson ATR is well worth the $160 price tag. A great value when you take into account the durability. I have three pairs that I bought on a clearance sale still in their boxes waiting to be worn when these are retired. That’s how much I like them. While not a shoe I chose when I want to run fast, they are my go to shoes for my training runs on the trails. Especially long runs on rugged trails.

An excuse not to buy cheap sunglasses

Looking good
To be cheap or not cheap

The other day I was waiting to receive my flu shot at Albertsons.  Next to me was a rack of sunglasses, so I took a look.  A $17.99 pair by Foster Grant caught my eye.  I thought, what a great deal.

Foster Grant label
I patted myself on the back, thinking I'm such a smart guy, buying a cheap pair of sunglasses. Let all those other people spend $50 or more on a pair.

Broken dreams of savings
Unfortunately there is a reason the Foster Grant sunglasses were so cheap, it's because they are cheaply made.  Not two days later the frames broke for no reason.  I assume the tensile strength of the plastic is substandard.

Therefore, next time you are in the market for a pair of sunglasses, and need an excuse to get the Oakleys or Tifosis, which by the way come with three lenses, think of me and spend the extra money.

Denk Run Ride - it's coming

Got a pair of running shoes?  Know someone with a mountain bike?  Wanna team up.  Soon enough.  The Denk Run Ride is coming.  All trail.  535' of gain and 3.7 miles a lap. Runner goes out first, does a lap and then tags biker. Biker does a lap.  Best combined time wins.  If you're crazy enough, do both laps yourself.

In the tradition of bike messenger alley cats, the exact time of the Run Ride will remain unpublished.  If you want in, contact us at and we will provide further details.  We will also try to match runners with bikers. By the way, did I mention Stumblefoot beer is on the line?

SEHRC Stickers and Facebook


San Elijo Hills Running Club is now on Facebook as a private group.  Please ask to be added if interested.


To a certain degree, this blog is about running.  Perhaps to a greater degree, it's about running a running club.  In an effort to memorialize the process, I've blogged about the name, the motto, the mascot, shirts, hats and now stickers.

The BykViking doesn't let up.  I mention the idea of stickers and voila, he gives me sticker designs.  Now I've got to make a decision.

Potential sticker designs
To aid in my decision, I request feedback.  Greg F. likes the three on the right side, with the top right one the best.  Chris B. likes the middle right and bottom right.

In my mind, the sticker should inform the reader of the name of the club and it's purpose.  At the same time, the BykViking and I are interested in having the sticker be consistent with either the shirts or the hat. Under this framework, the middle and bottom right fit the bill, as they both spell the club name out. Moreover, the middle right is consistent with the hat design and bottom right with the shirt design.

Although, the middle right does not pop.  Perhaps a change in color scheme?  At the same time, the top right, to me, is pretty cool looking.  Anyhow, we will send a bunch of emails to one another and chat about it on a group run and figure it out.  If you, the reader, have any comments, please comment away.

SEHRC Trucker Hats - super cheap

Our very own trucker hat wearing Greg Fall came up with the design concept for the trucker hat pictured below.  The red line represents Double Peak, Frank's Peak and Mt. Whitney.  It also calls to mind a heartbeat.  The BykViking added the white striping and I suggested the Blade Runner font.  All in all, a nice team design effort.

Through a connection at Otto, a large manufacturer of headwear, the club is able to get the hats at wholesale prices.  The hats are good quality and will be a cotton twill polyester blend, which helps the hats from fading in the sun.

We are going to have a local screen printing shop heat press on the design.  We are still working on exact pricing, but the hats will probably be priced at $6.00. We plan on ordering the hats on Monday, 11/24/12, so if you want one, let us know.

Keep on trucking!


Since this was posted, there has been a change of plans.  Heat press of a design is really only effective on a trucker hat with a white foam front.  As we have selected a hat made with cotton and a black front, our choice has to be embroidery. The price of embroidery is dependent on stitches.  As the design has a large white stripe, this design would require a lot of stitches aka $$$. Therefore, the BykViking reworked the design and removed the stripe.  The hat will now look like:

Sugar water, one night stands and Ottinger running to plan

Last night, seeing that only two runners would be joining me for the Sunday SEHRC group run, I was a bit disappointed.   Growing a running club has its up and downs.  Last week we had ten runners, plus the club secured sponsorship from Stumblefoot Brewery, as well as Road Runner Sports.  At the same time, about twelve club members had ordered club jerseys, not bad.

Cameraman Greg
I got over my disappointment and focused on the positive.  I'd be running with Greg and Kam, two awesome individuals who've run hundreds of miles with me. I knew it would be a good run, even if it was only three.

When I met the pair at Questhaven, we all said how tired we were.  Greg had run 17 miles the day before, Kam had done a tough track workout and I'd done 10 x 400m.  We all wanted to run slow and we did, putting in 12.7 miles, with 2,000' of gain at the fairly pedestrian pace of 10:10 a mile for a total time around 2:10.

The run was like an intimate dinner party.  We stayed together the entire time and chatted about running, training and life.  Early on we spoke about diet and In-N-Out came up.  Rather than call the soda at In-N-Out "soda", Kam referred to it as "sugar-water."  It's a good way of looking at it, because that's what it is. When I call a Coke, "sugar-water", I have less of a desire to drink it.  It reminds me of that scene in Men In Black:
Edgar: Give me... sugar... in water. 
That doesn't sound too appetizing, does it?  Kam then talked about the burgers. He likes them.  He eats them.  But then afterwards he feels remorse, like he just had a one night stand he regrets.  "What was I thinking?"  The three of us are relatively young runners, Kam has been at it 4 years, me almost three and Greg not even a year.  It's funny as we progress as runners, even though we could eat anything, we have become more concerned with our diet, not less.  One word, "avocado."

As the run continued, we got to speaking about Greg Ottinger.  A few weeks ago, Greg and I ran with Ottinger, with Ottinger going for 37 miles and Greg 31.  I bowed out at around 13.  During that run Ottinger spoke of the upcoming Chimera 100 miler.  Ottinger told us the race was all about eating and hydrating right for the first 80 miles, yeah just the first 80!  After that, if he felt good, he would open it up.

Ottinger ran to plan.  He stayed back early, letting 60 or so runners pass him.  He bided his time and ate his food.  Then like a great fishermen, he simply reeled them all in, passing 60 people to finish 4th overall.  It's a hard thing to let 60 people pass you, but for Ottinger it was the right thing.  Way to go!  

From Elfin Forest, looking at Double Peak, Frank's Peak & Mt. Whitney - does it get any better?

Letting things evolve at their own pace

On November 5, 2014, the South Coast League middle school cross-country finals for both the North and South divisions were held at Marantha Christian in San Diego.  The course was 1.5 miles and consisted of track, grass, pavement and dirt, with a bit of elevation change.

Zach did well, running the course in 8:40, which is a mile pace of 5:46.  (Time subject to confirmation.)  Zach finished fifth, set a new PR and helped his team win the boys' final.  Zach also got to meet Jim Ryun who was the first high school athlete to run under four minutes in the mile and won a silver medal in the 1968 Olympics in the 1500m.

Jim Ryun and Zach
It's been a good season of cross-country for Zach, as he's finished second or third each race and continued to set PRs.  Along the way, he's learned a few valuable lessons.  At one meet, the course was not marked properly, setting back the schedule by 30 minutes.  Zach, who didn't have water with him, ended up running the race with a dry throat.  Lessons learned: have water and crap happens.

Yesterday he played soccer at school prior to the meet.  He ran well and set a PR, but he realized afterwards this was not a good idea.  Lesson learned: rest on race day.

Although Zach and I ran a bit together this summer, I've left him alone for the fall.  Between soccer and cross-country, Zach was running 6-7 times a week.  I saw no need to get him to run with me.  Instead, I let him do his thing and I think it worked.

For the last three years, Zach has been expected to win every race he entered by his teammates and coaches.  While he did win 75% of the time, the pressure was a bit much for him.  He began to not want to run the races.

This year has been completely different.  His cross-country team is strong and Zach was more concerned about the team winning, then individual glory.  As a result, Zach enjoyed himself, is excited about the sport and wants to run more.

The Hare & The Tortoise: IAAF Strips the Tortoise of His Victory

Principality of Monaco - The International Association of Animal Federations ("IAAF") stripped the Tortoise of his victory over the Hare today after a months-long investigation.

We have all heard the story of the famous footrace between the The Hare & The Tortoise, which is reprinted below:
A hare was one day making fun of a tortoise for being so slow upon his feet. "Wait a bit," said the tortoise.  "I'll run a race with you, and I'll wager that I win."  "Oh, well," replied the hare, who was much amused at the idea, "let's try and see."  And it was soon agreed that the fox should set a course for them and be the judge.  When the time came both started off together, but the hare was soon so far ahead that he thought he might as well have a rest.  So down he lay and fell fast asleep.  Meanwhile the tortoise kept plodding on, and in time reached the goal.  At last the hare work up with a start and dashed on at his fastest, but only to find that the tortoise had already won the race.

Many people have long found the story unbelievable, asking "why on Earth would the Hare take a nap in the middle of the race?"  Moreover, questions have been raised about the Hare sleeping out in the open, making itself easy prey.

In the last year, rumors began to circulate that there were shenanigans involved in the running of the race.  Specifically, Alistair Barker, a Ph.D. student at the London School of Economics released a dissertation on the betting involved in the race.  Mr. Barker analyzed reams of ancient data from Dogbrokes, a British gaming company based in London, that took bets on the footrace.

Employing statistical analysis, Mr. Barker found the betting patterns to be normal, up until the last five minutes before betting closed.  At that point, Mr. Barker found millions of pounds of wagers were placed on the Tortoise and determined such bets to be an anomaly.  Conducting further research into centuries old banking records, Mr. Barker was able to determine the source of those wagers emanated solely from Asia, again an anomaly.

As a result, Mr. Barker contacted investigative journalist, I. P. Clear, at the The Times, who traveled to Hong Kong and other cities in Asia.  Mr. Clear  learned the bets were placed by the Triads, who have been linked to fixing football and cricket matches, as well as races, throughout the ages.  Mr. Clear was unable to convince any of his sources to speak on the record, so the story appeared as it was going to die.

However, the race was governed under the IAAF.  As a result, both the Hare and the Tortoise were required to give urine samples at the completion of the race.  Although, those samples were never tested, as the Tortoise won by such a wide margin, and drug controls in those days did not call for the mandatory testing of race winners.

At the urging of Messieurs Barker and Clear, the IAAF tested the urine samples of the runners.  The Tortoise was found to have traces of coca leaves in his sample, which accounts for the personal best the Tortoise was never able to duplicate in subsequent competitions.

Whereas, the Hare was found to have traces of opium in his sample.  Opium is an analgesic or painkiller and can be used as a sleep aide, which explains why the Hare inexplicably took a nap in the middle of the race.  In the parlance of today's youth, he was simply "tripping balls".

Based on these positive drug tests, the betting and bank records, as well as the Triad connection, the IAAF believes the Hare was a victim of a wide-ranging conspiracy, to which the Tortoise was a willing participant.  As a consequence, the IAAF stripped the Tortoise of his victory postreptously and awarded it the Hare.

While slow and steady wins the race, let's not be ridiculous.

Do you Strava?

When I meet new runners, in an effort to get them to join SEHRC, I ask if they're on Strava.  The typical response is, "Huh?  What's Strava?"

Strava uses GPS (Global Positioning System) data from satellites to track athletic pursuits.  The data is recorded via GPS watch or smartphone and then uploaded to Strava.

 Strava was originally used by cyclists and has since expanded to running and other sports, like swimming.  As Strava evolves, I imagine it will become a social media website for athletes, that tracks not only times and mileage, but food, heart rate, sleep patterns and anything else that can be measured and quantified that relates to a person's health.

Strava has a number of components that are appealing to me as a runner and running club founder.  From a runner's perspective, Strava helps me tie my shoelaces and go out the door.  With Strava, I can track what my friends, as well as professionals, are doing.  It helps me connect with people, as I can comment on their runs and give kudos.  I can also observe other people's training methods and then see how they do in races.

Additionally, Strava has a weekly club leaderboard that tracks total mileage, total elevation gain and total time spent running, which is updated as people upload their runs and is reset every week.  Once you belong to a club of a decent size, it feels good to end up on the week's final leaderboard, which only lists the top three in each category.  During the week, all runners are listed.

The other cool thing about Strava are the crowns or CRs (course records).  People can create run segments.  Then, as people run them, Strava tracks the runs and records and ranks the fastest efforts.  Chasing crowns can be a dangerous thing, as many a neophyte to Strava has been more concerned with course records, then proper training.  However, like anything new, once a runner becomes accustomed to Strava, the desire to nab CRs ebbs.  Instead, a runner can look at their past efforts on segments to gauge their fitness and see if they're improving.

From a club founder's perspective, Strava allows me to easily have a running club online.  Runners can find SEHRC on Strava and join if they want.  I can also invite people to join.  Strava automatically compiles all emails for club members, so I don't have to track them.  (I don't even know what they are.)  I can send posts to members and set-up group runs.  I can also make others "Admins" and they can also set up group runs.  Members can start discussions.    

What's really neat is that for upcoming runs, members can RSVP.  This is cool for races, so everyone can see whose running what.

So the next time some random guy asks you, "are you on Strava," hopefully the answer is, "yes".

Club shirts - like a kid at x-mas

I am a child at heart.  Sometimes when I put my big boys pants on I forget that.

[Allen Gamble: Do you wake up in the mornin' and say, "I'm puttin on my big boy pants. Look, I'm wearin' a belt. I got big boy pants on."]

One of my journeys in life is to uncover the boy that is still there, like a moon obscured by the clouds, the boy never went anywhere, it just got buried.  Well, I'm digging the boy out and like a kid at x-mas, I have to unwrap the presents a bit early.

The BykViking has spent the last week designing a club jersey at Canari Custom.  They are not quite done, but I can't wait anymore.  I'm ripping off the wrapping paper . . .    

The jerseys / tech tees will look largely like immediately below.  The only difference is that the side panels from the second set of pictures will replace the side panels in the front.

               Front                                        Back

      Side panels                                                   

When the shirts are finalized, I'll start taking orders.  Let's go barking dogs!
