On Risks & Rewards

On Risks & Rewards

The life of a long distance runner is one of risks and rewards. The risk of injury vs the reward of a personal best. The risk of burnout vs the reward of a great meal or some much needed R&R. As I find myself 19 days and 10 training runs away from my next big race — A Midsummer Night’s Run 30K, I find myself contemplating my next big reward. Perhaps a return to this beach I stayed on at the northern tip of the island of Zanzibar is in order.



  1. Rod, I’ve worked my way through several of your posts and just wanted to say I love your blog. Not only are you an accomplished runner, you are a talented writer. I’ll keep checking in to see how your training is going.

    And how do you look so happy in all your race pics? I just always look exhausted, but I’m smiling on the inside 🙂

  2. Thank you Kristi! I really appreciate your kind words and you reading my entries. Thank you!!!!
