2019 Spring Georgetown Half

Now for a PSA: Memorial Day is a day of remembrance and honor, not one to celebrate happiness or vacationing. Saying ‘Happy Memorial Day’ could be deemed as disrespectful of the thousands that have given their lives for our freedoms (lately the few that we still have). It’s Medal/Coin Monday! Birthday race! Hot and humid. […]

Allstate Hot Chocolate 15k RECAP

These hills felt worse than the ones in Central Park. I’ll be testing that assumption tomorrow. Prospect Park is really a beautiful park. I have seen more of it with each visit recently. The wind: another challenging factor today. That wind had some bite to it. And it didn’t help that my legs felt as […]

UAE Healthy Kidney 10k RECAP

And the winner of the “hills challenge” is Prospect Park. Mind you, Central Park is still a challenging course, but it’s getting second place for now. Chilly morning, but very mild wind today. In mile three I had a bad fall when this “boy” (yes I demoted his stupid butt) crossed in front of me […]

Credit Union Cherry Blossom Ten Miler RECAP

I was doing fine until mile seven and couldn’t draw my second wind. I guess it blew off somewhere with the cherry blossoms. After adding a couple walks and water […]

2019 United Airlines NYC Half

United Airlines NYC Half Marathon RECAP My watch stopped after mile six for some odd reason. It was right after crossing the Manhattan Bridge. So my Garmin gave me 12.1 miles. Very odd. I’m still counting this is 13.1. Anyway, on to the race. After a confusing wave start, we were off. Somehow I always […]

Happy Medal Monday! 1-28-19

Happy Medal Monday!  I was not expecting these to come today. And one, I wasn’t expecting at all. Yet here they are! The patch is for the NYRR Run Four Out of Six program for 2018. My patch collection continues to grow. Maybe I’ll put them all on a jacket one day. The plaque is […]

MARINE CORPS MARATHON 2018 Recap! 

  The weather for the race was exceptional. No rain. Yay! My first half was great. And then my mission went down in flames. Plantar fasciitis in my nemesis, aka my right foot, decided to go postal on me. Good grief! I stopped a couple of times to stretch it out with my thumb, but […]
