Terrain-adjusted marathon pace bands, pacing spreadsheets, elevation charts, training plans, running calculators, and other information for long distance runners 
About Me / Guestbook

This Web site is a collection of information about long distance running that I’ve either found on the Web or created myself over the years.  In particular, I’ve included all of my “Pacing & Info” spreadsheets which have become popular with runners planning to compete in some of the larger marathons.


As many runners do when they first qualify for the Boston Marathon, I became obsessed with finding out everything I could about the race before I ran it for the first time in 2006.  I scoured the internet for any information I could find about the race, mainly because I wanted to learn about pacing strategies for the mainly downhill but challenging course.  The more I looked, the more frustrated I became because I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted.  So, I decided to create a terrain-adjusted pacing spreadsheet for myself that could create custom pace bands based on my goal time.  I ran the race and the pace band worked like a charm.


After the race, I decided to take all the information I had collected about the Boston Marathon and add it to the spreadsheet so it was all in one place, then share it with other runners who might be looking for the same information.  I posted links to it on a few of the more popular message boards for runners and was happy to see that a lot of other runners found it very useful also.


Over the years I’ve continued creating “Pacing & Info” spreadsheets for other marathons and collecting links to interesting and useful running information on the Web. However it was getting hard to remember where I had placed all this information, so I decided to put it all on a single organized Web site where it would be easy for me (and others) to find.

Just want you to know your pace plan for the Philadelphia Marathon worked wonders for me in 2008. I will be using it again in 2009. I found it to be invalulable.
