Pride necessarily sprouts and grows; a pride that can only come from relentless kneading of unwilling flesh, painful months of grinding and burning away all that is heavy, all that is strength-sapping and useless to the body as a projectile. --John L. Parker, Jr., runner/author

Wesley, You're running great. 200 miles in 15 days, and still running mile 16 at 6:30/mile. Amazing! Dave

Do you take an iron supplement Wesley? If not, you should.

From Wesley Hunt on Wed, Jul 15, 2015 at 21:08:55 from

Dave- Thank you, sir.

Rob- Yes. I'm just curious how you knew that. I've been borderline anemic / iron deficient since I started real marathon training back in 2010-2011. I could be screwing up absorption by drinking so much coffee though...maybe I should take the iron at night?

From Rob Murphy on Thu, Jul 16, 2015 at 06:33:38 from

I didn't know. Pretty much ALL endurance athletes will suffer from at least a low-grade anemia if they don't take additional iron. Especially ones that train like you. You're a busy guy and need to pay really close attention to that and your rest/sleep habits.
