Well this weekend was a another marathon weekend. I had entered the Shamrock Whale Challenge for the fifth time in six years. I missed it last year due to my pericarditis. The Whale Challenge is running the 8K on the Saturday before and a full marathon on the Sunday af...

I finished my last marathon in Philadelphia just before Thanksgiving. Turning in yet another poor performance in 2018. This made me realize I needed to go back and focus on my strength training and get prepared before I tried another marathon.

I ran a fair amount last y...

I almost not like writing about this marathon, okay, I really don't like writing about this marathon. It's because it was my worst race time ever.

Happy birthday to me! My schedule has been crazy and I’ve been running all over…..unfortunately not running on my feet but rather work related. I did 1500 miles the previous weekend. Well here I am. In Richmond doing this race again. Last year I did a strong finish……la...

I have been struggling with my running this year for all sorts of reasons so I needed a familiar race to get me back on track. Wineglass in Corning NY is one of my favorite community marathons. I did it my first year of running races and then again in 2015. The local p...
