Great day at the Indy 500 mini-marathon with my brother, the Rock Steady Road Team, and 35,000 of our closest friends.
Way to go Steve...I am so proud of you! Sub two hours!!!!!!Bob Anderson 5/4/13 10:16 pm
Thanks, Bob. It was good anyway, but that was a big, thick coat of icing. First sub-2 since I turned 40! 5K split to start was faster than my 5K race time, and the AG % is edging up. Not the PR I would have liked. Still hungry. Sore in all the right places. Geist half in two weeks. Not as crowded, but hilly. We will see what the day will allow.Steve Gilbert 5/6/13 5:35 pm

26.2 minute remembrance Run for Boston at Blue Mile Fishers, a wonderful re-confirmation of the spirit of the running community and in a larger sense America.

Easy run, prep for 500 Festival mini, Geist half, then Double Road Race OP. Only 37 degrees. We are not getting any warm-weather conditioning! (Need a road trip.)
I did last hard run prep for Mini, hoping is stays fairly cool.Bruce Gilbert 4/20/13 8:09 pm

Heavy core day Tuesday at Rock steady Boxing, with dead-lifts and a lot of side lunges. Came in handy shoveling 6 inches of heavy wet snow on Wednesday.

Why I CAN run is all about the cross training program I have been in for five years. Tuesday we had guests from Ch. 8 news who aired a feature on Rock Steady Boxing at 5:30 last night. Watch at:

"Monumental Bean" is a 3 minute video produced by Kristy Follmar, trainer at Rock Steady Boxing. With encouragement and inspiration from family and friends, I trained for my first marathon last summer. All was going well until I got into the last month, when poor form (hamstring dominance poor glute action) began to take a toll on my knees. The training pace had indicated a possible 4:30 - 5:00 finish until the falloff following 3:00 and 3:45 long runs when the poor technique began to take its toll. I had enough leg strength to carry a half, but without the glutes the knees began to lose stability . Determination trumped prudence, and I finished in 6:22:21 thrilled, fulfilled, and with extremely sore knees. My brother (a 3:30 marathoner), who supported me throughout, sacrificed his race to be there step for step. Unending thanks to my wife, teammates, and many friends who were there in person or in spirit. I ran as a way to praise the blessings I have received, and to honor and encourage those who are in a tougher race every day than I was last November. It was a privilege to donate my medal to Medals4Mettle. (http://www.medals4mettle.org) Steve Gilbert 9/17/12 10:23 am
Cool video...I really wished I could make your race but I just am not going to be able too...how about you coming out to our Dec 23 Double in Pleasanton?Bob Anderson 9/18/12 6:06 pm
IMM tomorrow! Sorry you couldn't join us, but I know you are nearing the end of a great project. The day looks good, course is good, I feel good. Ready for whatever the day will allow. Would love to get my"old guy" PB, but overall just happy to be able to participate. Steve Gilbert 11/2/12 12:39 pm reply to comment

Steve, inspirational movie and story. All the best as you pursue your current marathon goal.Gary Funck 7/12/12 10:02 pm
I need to share this with my friend who's father has PD. She helped get a benefit race started (Speedy PD 10k and 5k) several years ago. One of the therapies use in the local support program is dancing...have had good results. Keep running!Barry Anderson 7/14/12 9:38 am
