This is our second large snowstorm in two weeks. We have a good 6-8 inches already, and it is still falling. I cannot wait until I can get out to the Parkway for some good running in the snow!

Today's workout:

Run 3 miles on the treadmill (that's about all I can take). Every half mile, hop off the treadmill and do 2 minutes of high intensity exercises like Burpees, squat jumps, mountain climbers, etc. Then hop back on the hamster wheel and run some more.

I followed that up with a full hour of snow shoveling.

Run hard out there...

Hey Neal

I just stumbled upon your book and it couldn't have come at a more appropriate time. I am getting ready to embark on a huge journey from 325lb private investigator to ultramarathoner. I used to be a runner and I am a writer so I am going to document this journey by blog, book and possibly by documentary. Ironically a huge inspiration for me to pursue the journey is David Horton. I am a former Lynchburger (if that's a word) and my wife is a Liberty Grad. When watching "The Runner" it was the aha moment. I would love to speak with you sometime as you have inspired me to document my journey and utilize my writing experience to help others see that anyone can be an ultrarunner. My email address is I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks for all you do with this blog and your book..
