Marine Corps Marathon 2018: Race Report

After 48 of these things, I think I’m getting the hang of them! The Marine Corps Marathon was great!! It’s been on my bucket list for awhile, and when my friend Andrea from Colorado texted me to say “I got peer pressured into another marathon” I knew I had to throw my hat in the ring and see if I […]

Boston Marathon 2018 Race Report

Hard to believe it’s been nearly a decade since I last ran the Boston marathon. But last year when Meredith mentioned that the race date fell on her 40th birthday, it seemed as good a reason as ever to make the pilgrimmage back to this marathoner’s mecca.

Marathon du Medoc 2016 Race Report

I don’t know the first time I heard of the Marathon du Medoc, the “longest marathon in the world”. I’m sure it’s been at least a decade that I’ve wanted to don a costume and run 42km through the vineyards near Bordeaux, France. 2016 was the year! The opportunity arose when Sara’s mom proposed visiting her brother and his French […]

Avery Four on the Fourth Race Report 2016

I was excited for this run, but also a little nervous about the calf pain I’d had late last week. It was forecast to be WARM (77F) at the race start of 9am. Avery Four on the Fourth is a great Independence Day run; they have a beer garden and breakfast for all runners afterwards, and if you place in […]
