After last week’s marathon in Delaware and having to drive all the way up there from Virginia Beach by myself, (exhausting…especially when you finish the race and immediately jump in the car….yeah, I know!) this time I was able to coerce my wife to join me on the drive...

Delaware Marathon #41 

For this marathon I was going it alone. My wife and number one fan was going to stay home and work. It would be my 41st marathon and my 5th one of the year. So far I have been packing them in pretty tight since my first one was mid-month March wit...

Charlottes (HILLS) marathon #39

There is a time during the running of any marathon that you wonder “What in the world was I thinking for signing up for this race!”

This one certainly had a couple of those moments for me. It was nice smaller race that included not onl...

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 had seen the crazy crab shaped medal on the registration page and I had to have it! The whole shell opened up too to reveal the skyline of the city of Baltimore. It sounds like a fun race…..and I needed to knock out the state of MARYLAND. We lived so close but I hadn...

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...
