I saw this survey floating around, so...

1. What are you training for now?
Short term: I am training for my second marathon, the Baden Marathon. (Karlsruhe, Germany), on September 18th. Long term: I have two goals in mind. The first is to break 1:50 for a half-marathon, probably next Spring. The second is try what they call here in Germany a Berglauf. A Berglauf, or mountain run, is basically a trail run with some serious hill climbing.
2. If you are raising money for a cause, what is it and why is that cause important to you? I signed up for a fund raising effort in connection with my marathon in September. I am running for an organization that assists children in need, a worthwhile effort in my opinion.
3. What is the farthest running you've done in training and what is the farthest running you will run before your event? As near as I could measure with my bicycle 32K/20M. I plan on running up to 36K/22M as part of my current marathon training.
4. What is your favorite flavor of gu (or other sports get)? I tried a vanilla gel and just about gagged to death. I'll stick to sports bars and drinks thank you!
5. How many days a week do you run? I usually run 3 but the last few weeks have added a 3-6K jog three more times a week!
6. Are you injured in any way right now? Nope, everything working like a Swiss watch.
7. What is the one type of running clothing/gear (shoes don't count) you can't live without? I never go anywhere without my running shorts (or pants);)
8. Do you have a talisman you are planning to take to your event? If so, tell us. I guess the closest I come is my stopwatch.
9. Share one thing about yourself we don't know. I collect John Deere tractors and machinery (see photo below)!

I liked reading your answers to this, mostly because I realized how well I've gotten to "know" you! I'm really interested in the planned trail run. I'll be looking forward to seeing how different the training looks for something like that.

Have fun tomorrow!
