Welcome to 10k Truth


Manciata on North Coburg Road at the mid-point of the Coburg Half-Marathon, July 16, 2000

If you run, jog or walk for fitness purposes alone, congratulations. We think that's great! It sure beats being a couch potato or a futon cruton as we say in Eugene, Oregon. But, if you actually want to get faster...if you want to blow by that punk kid who is one-third of your age, feel the exhilaration of dropping a runner on a hill like a sack of bricks...if there is still a competitive flicker in your heart...if you admit that it really is fun to beat another runner...then what you are ready for is the Truth.

Let's face it. Handicaps were made for golfers and bowlers. There's no reason to hold back and sandbag a 10k time. Despite press and media devoted to the contrary, running was never intended to feel good. Running is not a lifestyle choice. Simply put, It's a sport.

So, what's the Truth? The Truth is that Running Hurts. No one gets faster without meeting their personal pain barrier straight on. No amount of junk miles, fun runs or affirmations are going to get you over the hill at the five mile mark in a 10k. However, what will pull you through is solid prep with hard hill runs and interval work.

If that's the kind of Truth you can handle, get your game on, and welcome.
