Taste of Denver Elevation

Took a day trip to Denver, Colorado on Tuesday. Why? Because it’s there.  I had never visited Denver and plan to run a race out there in the future. So why not test out the air quality? Elected to pick one thing that would make the most in a short amount of time. So a […]

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 […]

Little Rock Half Marathon

VIRTUAL TCS NEW YORK CITY MARATHON

And my body had a “discussion” with me about this decision lol I’ve never had chafing before either, but I did today. Right between my upper thighs. I have […]

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 […]
