Paris Marathon Training: New Tactics

I am running the Paris Marathon this April. It will be my first Marathon in over a year. This March I pulled off the Reston Marathon in horrible conditions and sub par training, finishing in 3:09:51. Then, I learned a whole bunch of new stuff. Reston Marathon finish in the snow, soaking wet. Boston Qualifier by NINE seconds. Yikes… hence my goofy smile. 2014 was a great year mainly because I... read more

110 Ashburn Farms 5K – 18:21

This is the 4th year in a row that I have said I wanted to run a Turkey Trot. The three years prior I have failed, mainly because of two factors… they aren’t close by my family’s house and we drink too much the night before.

I saw my friend Rachel, then Ali and... read more

I really think this week is peak fall foliage... read more

108 Princeton Half Ironman – 5:29:24

Princeton 70.3 was to be my ‘finale’ of the season. Due to getting married, my fianceĆ© (Abbe) said I could not race a full Ironman this year. It would prove to be an exciting race for many reasons. I was racing it with my friend Doug, this being his second Half Ironman. Joe and Amy were racing it under my coaching guidance. Finally, my friend Susan was attempting her first Half Ironman and I... read more
