The Day Someone Asked The Right Question

Before I start, I should back up to explain how I’ve come out of running retirement. 🙂 With the Boston Marathon experience in 2013, I wanted to keep in running shape to do Boston again in 2014 to go back and experience it the right way.  During the year, it reminded me 1) how much I enjoy running and 2) that I can be okay at it if I just train correctly. After Boston 2014, I decided to keep on...

Must pee pee with Narnia Pizzazz (AKA Nueces 50 miler race report)

Wow, I know this race report will be very long considering it’s my last for running.  So don’t say I didn’t warn you. Race day morning was a lot calmer than Bandera considering I actually showed up to the race 45 minutes early instead of 30 minutes late.  And, since I had to travel far for the race to a town that has literally nothing, I had to actually plan ahead.  I had a bag for what I would...

Bandera 50K Race Report….it’s a long one!

Things that go wrong at a marathon (even if you’re experienced!)

Things that go wrong at a marathon (even if you’re experienced!) Sixth marathon seems like a no brainer that you should have it all figured out.  Suddenly everything seems to fall apart.  5:15 AM at Luke’s Fort Worth, almost everyone shows up on time.  We wait 7 minutes for one runner and ended up leaving him.  I actually still don’t know if he ended up coming to the race.  It was said in the...
