NYC Marathon Recap

I don’t want to bore people with a long winded race recap. But I do want to say THANK YOU for everyone’s well wishes and congratulations at the NYC Marathon. As some of you know, I went into this one with a small health blip on the radar which was being treated and monitored. I [...]

HOKA One Test Run

I just recently took my new pair of HOKA One’s out for a test spin. I saw HOKA burst onto the running and triathlon scenes a couple of years ago and my curiosity was piqued. While historically I have been somewhat a moderate to minimalist to a neutral shoe wearer, I had to check these [...]

Stay Tuned for Some New News

Many of you might recall that I used to write and edit for a regional endurance sports magazine called Liberty Sports Magazine. We had built up a nice print and online following but due to shifting priorities and a rapidly changing print media landscape, we opted to take a little hiatus.  There was little doubt [...]

Rehoboth Beach Half Marathon & Marathon

What a great weekend I had at the Rehoboth Beach Half Marathon & Marathon! I opted to run the half since I haven’t had enough training volume due to chemo treatments. And I had never run this race which made it a fun adventure on race day. For me, there’s something to be said for [...]

2016 Philly Marathon and Half Marathon Weekend

Congrats to all marathon, half marathon, and 8k finishers in Philly this year. I can speak from personal experience the conditions for Saturday’s 13.1 were beautiful.

2016 NYC 26.2 and Grassroot Soccer (and Shep)

So, here’s the thing… For the past 7 years I have raced the NYC marathon with my good buddy Ethan Zohn in support of his charity Grassroot Soccer.

Who Knew

Chronic lymphocytic leukemia is a very slow moving disease. So much so that people can be diagnosed in the very early stages but not need treatment for years. When I was diagnosed 10 years ago the disease could have been progressing for years prior to detection. One of the first questions that my doctor asked [...]

2016 Chemo Round 3

For those of you keeping score at home…round 3 of chemo concluded today without any issues. My blood counts were good and I continue to both respond and tolerate treatment pretty well.  I haven’t slept yet since yesterday due to the beauty and curse of my favorite (said nobody ever) steroid decadron but sleeping is [...]
