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. There is also something timelessly romantic about train travel. Arriving in Beantown we noted that it was a bit cooler than our weather apps had let on. This would be helpful for Sunday. 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.

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

099 The Reston Marathon – 3:09:51 – 2nd Overall

I always thought it would be cool, never participating in any athletics growing up, to one day return to my hometown and race. Kind of a strange twist… I left town an artist to return as an athlete. We hopped the train to DC Friday afternoon bags filled with beer, wine and Clif Bars. Survival is key. Arriving at my Bonus-Mom’s house everyone was ready to start scarfing pizza (they had already... read more
