124 The Boston Marathon – 3:18:17

After running Boston in the historically horrible heat of 2012 I was very reluctant to come back. A few years later though, I was enticed. I had forgotten how hard the course was and was excited by the buzz and possibility to run again in the most noble of running races. I trained my face off and BQ’d in Paris last year, which gained me entry. Abbe and I, along with Dougie and Danika, arrived... read more

123 NYC Half Marathon – 1:27:06

Danika, and Abbe set off to run to the start about 5 minutes ahead of me. Booked it down Fifth Avenue in the dark I was peering way ahead to see if they were coming into sight. On the corner of 88th Street an older man was hailing a cab that didn’t exist. As I approached he asked if he could run with me to the start. “Of course!” He was hoping to break 2 hours in the race. I would like... read more

Abbe and I signed up for the Paris Marathon and both of us got in. I then decided... read more

122 Ted Corbitt 15K – 1:00:31

We, The Battalion, assembled for the first time ever to run the Ted Corbitt 15K. There were 10 of us running the race and we assembled on 96th and the West Drive. It was easily 55-60 degrees out, shocking considering this race is normally arctic conditions. We all set off to our respective corrals after a little pep talk. Up in my corral it was stinky as usual, the smell of Icy Hot and BO lingering in the... read more
