132 NYC Half Marathon – 1:26:22

This will have been my 4th time running the fabled New York City Half Marathon. I love this course as half of it is in my backyard and the other have runs through the streets of the city. It is also a very fast course if played right. Abbe and I headed down to pick our bibs up the day before the race. It was still remarkably crowded, but the process was smooth and seamless as usual. 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.

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

We (Abbe, Dougie, Danika and Eric) landed at noon, rented a car,... read more

128 Fire Island 5k – 19:59

On Friday, I left work to meet up with everyone (Abbe, Bojana, Brian and Maura) at Penn Station. It was steamy and I broke out into a sweat immediately on the subway platform, just a precursor of what was to come. It seemed that my crew had boarded the train, so I did the same. Once we all found each other drinks popped open and a ‘Here’s to a vacation weekend’ toast ensued. Fun, had... read more

127 NYRR Team Championships – 32:33

The NYRR Team Championships is a really fun day in the Park. All the teams come out and cheer in massive crowds. In order to race you need to be part of a NYRR sanctioned team. A lot of the team went up to Inwood after work on Friday to a free event The Met was putting on. Dinner was held at Indian Road Cafe, a very cute and unique neighborhood hangout. I opted for the linguine as the server said it was... read more
