50×4: Ohio! A Christmas Story 10K

By |

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)!

Baltimore City Turkey Trot 2018!

By |

On Thanksgiving, Ellie, Jeff, Adrienne and myself woke up to a brisk Baltimore morning and made our way over to the Waverly YMCA for a good ole’ fashioned turkey trot! None of us have been running, so expectations were low, but we had a blast!

Before the race, we did a quick tour of the inside […]

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 […]

Running, Intervals, and Server Downtime!

By |

First! The server exploded, sorry about that. We had a prolonged downtime this week (the first since starting the blog up!) due to some hardware failures. Once the hardware was fixed, I had a heck of a time getting the settings working with our network again. Let me know if there are any lingering effects!

So, […]

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 […]

Boilermaker 2/50 : Mieux vaut tard que jamais!

By |

This is the second post of my daily recap of all 50 runs on the way to the 2017 Boilermaker. It is going to be a short post format with just notes that we can review. Enjoy!

With Ellie busy doing a Reform Fitness class tonight, this was my first solo run of the training block. Technically it […]

Boilermaker 1/50 : Tornado Watch!

By |

This is the first post of what will be a daily recap of all 50 runs on the way to the 2017 Boilermaker. It is going to be a short post format with just notes that we can review. Enjoy!

Ellie and I set out tonight despite rather difficult weather, a literal Tornado Watch. Can’t miss […]

Finding the Funny!

By |

Like the great comedian Tammy Pescatelli says, “You gotta find the funny”

Last night Ellie and I made use of our Catalyst Fitness membership and got in some much-needed cardio. I’ve been struggling to get back onto the treadmill / running in general for a while now. I start out alright, but after about ten minutes my […]

Reflecting on Five Years of Running

By |

Five years ago today, Ellie and I ran our first official 5k road race. We did a very small local run sponsored by Medaille College. Ellie had run for years prior to this on and off, while I had really just started to do so to get in shape with the blog. Both of us were […]

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. […]
