Big Sur Marathon

This last weekend in April is always known as BSIM weekend on this beautiful stretch of coastline. What an exciting weekend. The weather was near perfect – some headwinds on a few sections of the course slowed down the runners down a bit. I was in one of the lead cars with Sally Smith the wind didn’t slow us down.

Dean Karnazes did the Big Sur Double by running to the start – leaving Carmel at 2:45 am.

Congrats to all finishers !!!


In Monterey for the Big Sur Marathon

I just arrived in Monterey for the weekend. I will be working the expo selling my book and doing a few seminars on Saturday. The weather forecast looks awesome for Sunday.


Back in Boston: Book Debut & Banter @ Expo

Greetings from Boston, Center of the Universe for marathoners these next few days. I did a short run around the Charles this morning and now I’m at the Boston Marathon Expo in the Hynes Convention Center doing a book signing for my new book, My Life on the Run – hot of the press. After the run and before I got to Hynes, I did a a segment on Fox 25 News. Every runner from out of town must have been in bed in their hotel room with the TV on because it seemed like they all showed up at the Jet Blue booth to get my book and tell me they just saw me on TV! Today I’ll be giving a talk, Boston & Beyond, and presenting a shortened version of my slide show, Never Limit Where Running Can Take You – in Room 100 located just off of the expo floor near the Boylston entrance – 2 short seminars today, 2 tomorrow and 2 on Sunday. See my website calendar for times. I’ll also be MCing some great panels. Check out the Running Legends tomorrow. Stop by and introduce yourself.  Bart
