A mutual friend introduced Ethan and I in 2009 knowing that we each shared a blood cancer diagnosis and we were both former soccer goalkeepers. What makes this [...]

Lake Placid Revisited (Take IV)

I’ve toed the line of 15 iron distance triathlons and crossed the finish line of 12 of them. While DNFs are always disappointing and humbling, there is usually some kind of take away or life lesson to be found once the emotional and/or physical bruises heal. I’ve successfully raced Ironman Lake Placid 3 times; in 2002, [...]

Tuckahoe Sprint Duathlon

So, here’s the thing. I registered for the Tuckahoe (NJ) Sprint Duathlon long before we jumped into the chemotherapy pool and luxury spa. My hope is that I should still be able to pull this off. The race is next week, 7/31, and is a few short miles from our house in Marmora NJ. It’s [...]

My Regards to Broad Street

On May 1st 2016 I ran in the 37th annual Broad Street 10 Miler in Philadelphia in the pouring rain. I first fell in love with Broad Street in the early 1990s when it was a fraction of what it is today. “Back then” the Philadelphia running and triathlon markets were not yet over saturated [...]
