Nick Symmonds and Clingmans Dome

I've been following Nick Symmonds and his training for his first marathon (Honolulu in December). He hopes to break 3:00. This is a vlog about his most recent workout--up to Clingmans Dome (highest point in TN). I've been there!

I like at the beginning when Nick talks about social media occasionally being a hindrance (and at other times a motivator). I've felt the same about Twitter, Strava, and blogging. Lately I've just wanted to run. Not with others...and not with much documentation (still can't toss my damn GPS watch!). If you like this video, check out his full set of training posts on YouTube. Interesting journey from 800m professional runner to recreational (but really fast) marathoner.
