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)!

Run716 2018 In The Books!

By |

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 […]

Greek Fest 5k 2018 In The Books!

By |

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 […]

Why We Ditched the Boilermaker, and a Recap of Run 716!

By |

Last time I wrote a blog post, I was covering our early stages of training leading up to the Boilermaker 2017. As many of you know, my entire family ended up transferring our bibs and registered our first (unofficial) DNS.

Coming to the decision to drop out was not easy. The Boilermaker is one of our […]

Half-Marathon Training Schedule and A Snowy Long Run

By |

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.

Our training program for our fourth half-marathon is a bit different from previous, due to the addition of weight-training. […]

Sports Nutrition: I Still Can't Stomach Those Gels

By |

Now that we’re running longer distances, it’s time for us to use energy chews/gels again. I always get really excited when this happens because WE GET TO EAT WHILE RUNNING! I love eating, so this is a win for me. When we start pushing more than an hour of running, we bring along tasty treats. […]
