Escape from Ireland

It seemed simple enough, our assignment that is. Escort and protect two Serbian Nationals across Ireland so they could rendezvous with a Serbian American and an Irishman. They were getting married in a few days and it was of utmost importance that the Serbian Nationals be there for it. Basically, the wedding wouldn’t take place without their presence. I hardly slept on our flight over from JFK,... read more

134 – Brooklyn Half Marathon: 1:24:16

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

I’m signed up for the Chicago Marathon, but Boston will surely close by... read more

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
