“What are you doing finishing so fast? We didn’t even have time to make it over to the fence to cheer for you.” Those were the words uttered in joking anger at me after meeting back up with Col. Cupcake, Speet and Steve after finishing Kal-Haven. I wondered why they weren’t along the fence with … More “What Are You Doing Finishing So Fast?” Kal-Haven RR
Wow! I’m not sure I remember how to do this blooping thing. . . work/life don’t leave much time for it anymore. But, I’m gonna try my best to recall my weekend/race that was no doubt much more amazing than I can put into words. I haven’t had a marathon goal time in quite a … More Marshall University Marathon. . .WV is OSOM!
It’s been quite a while since I’ve blooped, let alone wrote up a RR. I’ve raced a bunch, but nothing seemed very worthy of reporting on from my perspective that others had not already touched on. I began to feel like I was typing the same RR, just changing the dates or distances, people or … More Rosaryville 50K RR–Chicked!
Two days later it still stings. My first DNF. Can I run 52.4 miles? Sure, I know I can. . . just keep pressing forward right? Relentless Forward Progress. Stay on top of your hydration, eat something at each aid station and take your S-Caps. Easy enough, right? What happens when your plan fails? You … More DNF – Yankee Springs Double Marathon
I’m not sure where to begin when writing up a Loopfest RR and this one is no different. For me, this was truly the year of the ultra – just running, no time goals, no stress, no plan. . . just run. I signed up for TCM knowing that it probably wouldn’t be my fastest marathon, but … More Gun Racks and Second Winds – My TCM RR
All this year I had been planning on running my first 50 Miler at Run Woodstock the weekend of September 7th-9th, then about a month ago on a 50K training run I allowed my arm to be twisted into the 100K. What’s 12 more miles? Isn’t running in the dark more fun? I couldn’t argue … More Run Woodstock LSD 100K RR (LONG)
When I had first clicked “register” for the “No Wimps!” Challenge, I had that nervous, “I can’t believe what I just did” feeling. It went away as quickly as it came and it was replaced with the “I can do anything” feeling. Well, that was a couple months ago. Sure, I had mentioned to some people that I would be … More One Weekend, Two Extreme Trail Runs, Infinite Bragging Rights
I added some of my race reports from Runner’s World Website Blog “The Loop” before they disappear. They used to have photos, but those disappeared. I used to be much faster, which has also disappeared. I’ll probably add more tomorrow. Enjoy them if you choose.
Well, it’s been WAY too long. . . I’ve been trying to come up with a witty report and a recap that is worthy of my Philadelphia experience as a whole and for probably the first time in my life. . . I’m at a complete loss for words. For those who know me, know … More Phinally, My Philly RR
Marathon Eve, I met up with Running Loopy, his bro and dad for some pre-race chatting and dinner at Hard Rock. What a great trio of gentleman! We had a fantastic time and they were so kind to even be sure to walk me all the way back to my car. Fun times as always … More Detroit Freep Marathon 2011 RR
