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
I’ve been trying to figure out how to put this experience into words, but I keep failing miserably whenever I try. Then this morning, I received this quote from Dean Karnazes in my inbox: “Most people never get there. They’re afraid or unwilling to demand enough of themselves and take the easy road, the path of … More Mudstock 2011!!! Freak 50K RR
So. . . Flirt with Dirt. . . this race is ran right in my “backyard.” Well, not literally, but Lakeshore Park is only a 5 minute drive from my apartment and happens to be where I get my trail running in. I’m hoping to branch out to other trails, as my area has plenty close … More Flirt With Dirt 10K RR
Where to start? I certainly have spent the last few days pondering how to write the report for this race. The only thought that continuously comes to mind is “No Regrets.” Coincidently, these are the words that I said to myself standing on the start line. Amazingly enough at the finish they were also the same words that … More 2011 Bayshore Marathon RR
I’m slacking on my race reporting, but honestly I really haven’t been feeling like writing up anything. The races have been mostly business as usual and actually more fun than racing. Weird. . . this year my outlook has been a bit changed. Sure, I still put on my game face and run as best as I can, … More Tale of Two Races (The Crim and MLD 30K) 2011
I LOVE running trails!!! I had been looking forward to this race weekend for a while. I wasn’t sure what to expect or how it was all going to go, but that is why I was so stoked. Road races are easy to plan for, you can have a race plan all laid out. Trails offer so much unknown, … More Road Ends 5 Mile RR
All along I had been planning on cheering on my fellow running buddies at the Martian Invasion of Races held in Dearborn, MI (5K, 10K, Half, Full and Kids Marathon). I knew I had a busy weekend already and I really didn’t think it would be a good idea to throw in a race as well. However, we all … More When Martians Invade – A RR!
This will not be my traditional mile by mile recount of the whole race. It would be similar to the last two I have done since the course is the same, the weather similar (though a little less wind and a little more warmth this time) and I would hate to bore anyone with the “same” report … More How Not To PR aka Mud Dog Pikermi RR
