I manage the San Diego Track Club's Web site and produce a quarterly e-zine called San Diego Running. This was my third issue I created all on my own after taking four Saturday morning Web design classes exactly a year ago. I ran out of time and broke my own promise to always do my best. But sometimes, when everything seems to go wrong for you and those you love, you do what you gotta do.
I had a fancy masthead like previous issues, but it wouldn't render correctly in Firefox and Safari. Then I had this crazy orange color where the masthead once was, even as Dreamweaver swore up and down it was white. So, since it already looked like crap I thought, "Why not pile it on. Make it look intentional." That's why the sidebar on the homepage is turquoise. And I just noticed some pages don't look right in IE8. Still.
All this is my way of asking you to focus on the content. There may be something that helps you with your own running, whether you live in San Diego or far beyond.
This issue includes:
A report from the Athens Marathon
A report from the Chicago Marathon
A Q&A with some really fast (and humble) runners
A running group in North County
A piece on plantar fasciitis
My column on volunteering
Expert advice on balancing amino acids
How to keep your New Year's resolutions
And the mindset of a streaker
