Fitness photo frenzy, part 2


Bryce_on_the_run Bryce is currently training for the 2008 Olympics in the marathon. He plans to run Boston in April for his qualifying time. He needs to beat 2:22, but his real goal is 2:19. After talking to Bryce and seeing those tenuous legs in motion, I have no doubt he’ll nail it.

Bryce runs for the Transports adidas Racing Team and previously ran at Cal State University, Fullerton. He has used the Forerunner 201 in the past for training and was interested to step up to the new generation of Forerunners with the improved receiver. Since a lot of his runs are on tree-covered trails, he needs a device that won’t lose GPS signal and provides accurate time, distance and pace.

Perhaps as inspiring as his running feats is what Bryce does for his day job. He’s a one-on-one aide for a child with autism and he tutors another child with development disabilities. No surprise he incorporates running into the care he provides. He said one of the children has natural running talents and the physical workouts deliver many benefits. Bryce plans to pursue a master’s degree and certification as an occupational therapist. He also coaches a youth-led track club. And somehow, he manages to fit in 100 to 130 training miles a week. Two-a-days for sure.

Bryce’s PRs:
14:37, 5K
30:30, 10K
52:00, 10 mi.
39th at the U.S. National Championships in 2005, marathon
