Earlier this morning, I met with The Body Firm's owner, Dave Fannin (that's him on the left), for a fitness assessment as we gear up for The Quad.* It's always a bit awkward having someone pinch your fat and measure your arms, chest, stomach, and calves. And it's even more humbling to discover that, despite running many, many miles, I have 20% body fat. Too much pizza and beer, I guess.
Next up, we tweak my crosstraining to maximize my running potential.
* For those of you who happened to stumble upon the blog and have no idea what The Quad is, welcome. The Quad is a series of four ultramarathons that I will be attempting to complete between November 2008 and February 2009. Specifically, The Quad consists of the 12-hour Ultracentric, the Sumart 50 mile run, the Bandera 100 km run, and the Rocky Raccoon 100 mile run. And yes, I may be certifiably insane.
