Treacherous Training

Swimming in a pool is boring. Swimming in the ocean is fun and adventurous! Pools don’t have sharks. Doug and I set off on the subway around 10AM putting us on Brighton Beach at 11. Slightly later than we wanted but we had a late start as Abbe made us (the best) scrambled eggs.   The beach was full of  ‘beach-goers’ sunning themselves and doing normal ‘beachy’ things. We... read more

103 Eagleman – 5:21:22

Last season was a bust for me due to my ongoing knee problem. I only raced 1 (that’s right 1) triathlon! My friend Doug suggested we rock Eagleman 70.3 to set off the season. It would be his first attempt at the distance and I was excited to be a part of that. We left might Manhattan at noon on Saturday. In tow we had Doug, his fiance Danika (also a friend of mine) and his youngest daughter Madison.... read more

102 Boston Run to Remember Half Marathon – 1:22:45

Abs n I caught a late afternoon train on Friday, barreling due north towards Boston. I love train rides. You can bring your own food and beer, plus the odds of a crash are pretty low.

Abbe works in the food industry so... read more

101 Brooklyn Half Marathon – 1:22:46

I like being sporadic. I think we all need to be more sporadic. I decided last minute to pop a train down to my alma mater (MICA) and hang with my friends Alex and Will for something called Artwalk. It’s a blast. Just envision the largest art opening you can, paired with food and booze campus-wide. If you are a creative, it will inspire you tenfold. But where was Abbe during all of these... read more

100 Run as One 4M – 24:19

This is my 100th race! It was also my 10 year anniversary at work… spooky. Come along, let’s take a walk back in time and see where it all started. Back in 2007 I didn’t run. In fact, aside from running around in general like little kids do, I never really ran. I dreaded the Mile in gym class. That year a coworker of mine ran the NYC Marathon. I went and cheered her on with some other... read more
