For some reason, eight has held special significance for me and running. The first time I felt really proud of my pace was when I completed a 3.3 mile route at just under eight minute pace. While sub-8 pace isn't earth shattering, it represented a significant personal achievement, particularly over three miles.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
