134 – Brooklyn Half Marathon: 1:24:16

As you may have read on my previous post, next year is my 10 year running anniversary. What better way to celebrate it then to run the race that started it all, the New York City Marathon. The goal… run a sub 1:25 half marathon in Brooklyn to qualify. I took the day off on Friday because we had friends coming into town for the weekend. Abbe wanted to write a story on Wylie Dufresne’s new... read more

133 – NJ Marathon: 3:05:38

I suppose it was during the afterparty of the NYC Half Marathon that it happened. There were beers involved. Friends agreed, I should run Boston on my 10th year of running. Even better, I will turn 40 years old in 2018, so it’s a dual milestone. The problem – it was March and I had no qualifying time to register with. I’m signed up for the Chicago Marathon, but Boston will surely close by... read more

132 NYC Half Marathon – 1:26:22

We grabbed lunch at... read more

NYC Marathon – 2016 Spectator Report

Marathon Sunday in New York City is my favorite day in the city. It has been since 2008, when I ran my first race and fell in love with running. Most years I am running it, but I bowed out of 2016, mainly because I was running a marathon in Italy 3 weeks prior. That meant I was on super cheer squad duty! Our cheer support started on Saturday night. Abbe and I had a dinner/sign making gathering at our... read more

130 Lake Garda Int’l Marathon – 3:05:15

Our team, The Battalion, likes to travel for work. That is, we pick fun destination races. 2016 was the Lake Garda International Marathon in northern Italy. We picked it for it’s gorgeous scenery and well… the food. DAY 1 The Emirates flight to Milan was a flawless victory for me. One Ambien and I was out for the whole 8 hours. We (Abbe, Dougie, Danika and Eric) landed at noon, rented a car,... read more
