Philly Marathon

Congrats to all of today’s finishers, volunteers, supporters, race staff, Philly cops, spectators, and everyone else who had anything to do with this amazing event. I can’t say it enough, I love this event. It never disappoints. It always has and always will be a special place for. It was my first marathon in 1994 and [...]

2014 Marine Corp Marathon – I Teared Up at That

Those marines sure know how to throw a party. I will try to keep this brief as I know nobody likes getting lulled to sleep with long drawn out race reports. While my effort at this year’s Marine Corp Marathon was a slow run/walk, it was nothing short of moving and inspirational. This was my [...]

Upcoming Inspiration & Perspiration

Well it looks like my calendar is going to be pretty busy in the coming months. Next up is Ironman Maryland on September 20th. As some of you know, this is the old Chesapeakeman race recently purchased by the WTC. I’m looking forward to doing this race under the M-Dot umbrella and comparing it to [...]

Riding Life’s Roller Coaster

It’s been an interesting few weeks. On November 3rd, I crossed the Verrazano Narrows bridge with 50,000 of my closest acquaintances on my way to finishing my 4th NYC marathon.

Redemption Running

I headed out this morning for what needed to be about a 15 mile jaunt. I am two weeks out from the NYC marathon so technically last weekend should have been a 20 mile training run but that didn’t quite happen. But it’s OK. I’ll figure it out on race day. (the most famous of [...]

Chapter and Verse

I realize it’s been a while since I have posted. All is well, it’s just been a rather busy time. Much of my energy has been focused on networking and trying to land a job since mine terminates at the end of September. I’m still not certain where my path will lead me or what [...]
