Space Coast Marathon and Half RECAP

I think that this race could’ve been more physically distanced, however I ran with my buff in place for the first three miles as the running field became less dense. I became dehydrated around the sixth mile (the temps were likely in the low 70F°s). Foot cramps started to slow me down because I forgot […]

FiredUp 10k – Miami, Florida

2019 TCS NYC Marathon RECAP

And that’s it, The Big Apple has been bitten. I think it should be called, The Big Rollercoaster. When people say, ‘Earned and not given’, it totally applies to this race. Mind you I handled all of the bridges soundly. The Verrazanno Bridge wasn’t as windy as I was expecting. Waiting in the race wave […]

Paine to Pain Trail Half Marathon RECAP

Well, that’s done. And so are my feet. The stones! The stones! My biannual visit to New Rochelle for this race is always special. From the 200-year-old musket firing to start each wave to the immediate hill you climb to get to the trailhead to the constantly changing terrain. Five beautiful parks await you as […]

Madison Mini Marathon RECAP

Wow, what a day! My Airbnb was less than two miles away from the race festival on the University of Wisconsin campus, so I opted to just run a casual pace to get there. However, I was not expecting four nice hills along the way. Anyway, once I arrived I was warmed up and I […]
