I ran “The South’s Toughest 15k” for the 4th time last Saturday and I’m here to tell you it hasn’t gotten any easier. Even though I finished 3rd in the old man group I posted my worst time yet, nearly 4 minutes slower than my best time on this course. After the race someone told … More Statue To Statue 15k – Not Making The Grade
Do you have to find the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow to feel the luck o’ the Irish, or is making the journey relatively unscathed lucky enough? I ran the Publix Atlanta Half Marathon on Saint Patrick’s Day and I think I learned the answer. Conditions were right for me to … More Publix Atlanta Half Marathon – The Luck o’ the Irish
If you’ve read enough of my boring blog you may recall that I lived in sunny south Florida for 15 years or so before moving north to the real south. I started running when I was living in Florida so I always look forward to returning to run on sweet level terrain, even if I … More Running Over the Same Old Ground
I ran my third Mercedes Benz Half Marathon in Birmingham this morning and I’m feeling pretty good about my race. My unofficial time was 1:49:19 which is my best half marathon time since March of 2017. I wish I could report to you where I finished in the old man group, but somehow 4 hours … More Mercedes Benz. The Best, or the Best in a While
Imagine my surprise when I picked up my race number for today’s Adam’s Heart Run and saw that it was the same number I had last weekend for the Marathon Bahamas Half Marathon. What are the chances of that? And surprise might not even be the right word considering how I am about numbers. I … More What Are The Chances?
On Sunday I fled the cold and ran in the Marathon Bahamas Half Marathon. I know they say “It’s Better in the Bahamas” and it may be, but if we’re talking about my time it was not. I ran 1:57:11, about 4 minutes slower than my average and 12 minutes behind my PB. That was … More Better In The Bahamas?
Today is the first day to apply to run in the TCS NYC Marathon in 2019, and I’ve apparently got a month to mull over whether or not I will. It may take every minute of that time to decide but I feel like I probably won’t. If you’re one of the few people who … More It Will Conflict You
5ks are kinda like the gateway drug for distance runners. I think most of us start out running these shorter races before we move on to the strong stuff – 10k, half marathon, marathon and ultra-marathon. I’ve pretty much moved on from the 5k race wise, I’m mostly a half marathon guy now. But I … More Baby It’s Cold Outside. But Not Me
I ran the Magic City Half Marathon for the fourth time the weekend before last, adding a little more than 5 and a half minutes to my time since I first ran it in 2015 despite the fact that this year’s new course seemed to be a lot flatter and faster than the previous route. … More Teddy Bear Picnic – The Magic City Half Marathon
I started this running blog a few years to chronicle my running exploits leading up to the TCSNYC Marathon in 2016. Along the way I picked up some comments and followers from other runners, and I started to follow many back. After a while you feel like you really do know these people. There’s Donna … More The Search For A Girl On A Search For Adventure – Las Vegas Half
