Buffalo Shamrock Run 2019!

By |

On Saturday, Ellie and I braved the cold and driving snow to complete our first ever Shamrock Run in the Buffalo first ward community. It was, to summarize simply, awesome!

Pretty bib!

We had a pretty late night prior to racing, so we were super fortunate that the race didn’t start until noon. Although I don’t recommend […]

March Challenge! Baltimore Inner Harbor to Red River Beach!

By |

Happy Friday, and more importantly, happy March!!! We are almost to spring, although the recent dumping of snow in the northeast has us feeling otherwise.

First Long Run of 2019!

By |

Ellie and I started the building process toward our first major road race of the season, which means one thing: a weekend long run. I am happy to report it wasn’t too bad!

No matter how light a light beer is, too many beers makes for a bad weigh-in. As usual on this blog, Wednesday is for stat checking! If you would like to contribute and get involved, feel free to leave a comment, create an account and get moving!

Looks like Adrienne took weekly crown of top […]

Should I care about toenails?

By |

Brace yourself for some riveting content, folks: today I want to talk about toenails. Now I don’t know about you, but I definitely hate clipping my toenails. I even hate when others clip my toenails during pedicures. Just typing this makes me cringe with discomfort. Alas, foot care is a necessity, especially for runners.

I know […]

Switching Gears (lol): Training Plan For February

By |

I cracked myself up with the title of today’s post. I’ve been bicycling quite a bit on Zwift over the past six weeks, closing out my first full FTP Build program. With only two workouts to go, it is about that time that Ellie and I are switching gears (get it? like a bike gear?) […]

To Train, or Not To Train at Race Distance?

By |

I came across an interesting tweet from Hal Higdon, a juggernaut in the sport of running. Famous for both his writing at Runners World, coaching, as well as racing in the sport himself. I thought i’d share it here, as well as my own experiences at the half-marathon distance.

To summarize – he is a believer […]
