Manhattan Half Marathon – 1:28:21

I normally don’t like to pay money to run around my backyard, but since my Aunt Marge (in charge), cousin Cat and Charla were coming in for the race, I was game. They all converged on my apartment around 6:30AM. We had some coffee, formulated a game plan and were out the door by 7. They got to meet the Gotham City Runner crew, those that were racing anyway, at the start. The weather was great.... read more

Ted Corbitt 15k – 59:43

A 15k race, for me, is a blast. Right when things start to really hurt, the race is over. It was a tad chilly, but then again the Ted Corbitt is always chilly due to it being held in mid December. I met my friend Rachel at the start and we did a quick warm up before heading to our respective corrals. I had no Garmin. I had no expectations. I was just going to run at what I thought was a ‘hard’... read more

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.

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. This year Abbe and I were determined to make it happen! We arrived at my brother’s house the day before and had a pretty chill day aside from wrestling and... read more

109 Bronx 10-Miler: 1:04:38

10 miles is a fun distance because it’s right on the brink of ‘not fun anymore.’ Abbe and I took the ol subway uptown into the Boogie Down Bronx and had loads of time to spare. Looking back on the 70 degree weather we had, I am completely jealous. We found some of the Gotham City Runners crew, chatted, then set off for the corrals and a quick warm up. I saw my friend Rachel, then Ali and... read more
