Many runners and triathletes use music, audio books, podcasts, or other audible media to help them through their workouts. These can provide a necessary distraction from the drudgery of long workouts. For some reason though, I actually don’t use them at all. For a long while now, probably several years, I stopped using headphones. It […]
Welcome to the inaugural post of a new series by Ellie and me. We’re calling it 50×4, which is short for Fifty Bagels, Fifty Dates, Fifty Races, Fifty States! That’s right, folks. Ellie and I are going to attempt to race in all fifty states (and D.C. and maybe some other places)!
Ohio: Cleveland’s A Christmas Story […]
On Sunday, Ellie and I woke up bright and early for the second annual Run 716 race in downtown Buffalo. It is so refreshing running a race locally, and also not having to cart around a bike, wet suit, and everything else involved in a triathlon. So much easier!
Last year Ellie and I set a […]
Over the weekend a collection of brave souls from Buffalo headed over to Seneca Lake to compete in the Mini-mussel triathlon! Ellie, Miranda and Hannah formed up the Buffalo Gal’s relay team, while myself, Brindy and Alex competed in the full sprint triathlon. It was an awesome weekend full of friends, racing, wineries and competitive […]
This past Friday we ran the Greek Fest 5k. This year was pretty cool because it was a return for the race after a four-year hiatus. It is a great local run, and we are glad it is back. This year was also organized by a friend of ours, who did a fantastic job of […]

Training season has arrived. So too, apparently, has winter. With our first official week of half-marathon training in the books, our not-so-friendly Lake Erie Monster has returned, just in time for our long run of the week.
