Plan B

Yesterday I completed my final “test” walk in a series of trial walks that started a month ago to see if training for a future marathon might be doable. The plan was to do the Portland marathon this October ( my 3rd time) and then hopefully obtain a qualifying time to enter Boston in 2014 […]

Rock&Roll Race Report

Sorry, this race report is a little late in coming, but I didn’t want my little prison stint to over shadow all the good things about this race. First let me say what a pleasure it was to finally meet the famousMc Govern alumni who trekked in from all over the country to do this […]

An ExtraTerrestrial Race Report…..Long

Well, this race definitely ranks up there as one of the strangest, yet one of the funnest Ive ever done. Too bad I was sick as a dog during 90% of it. Oh, my lungs were fine. The elevation didn’t bother me at all, it was the rest of my body that was going haywire. […]


Without going into a detailed mile by mile re-play, let me just say that you couldn’t ask for a better day to hold a marathon or a better group of friends to share it with. It was a beautiful , slightly warm, fog-free day in the city by the bay and that I’m tickled pink […]

Tomorrow makes number 3

Im finally starting to get pumped about tomorrow’s race. The Kaiser Permanente half marathon. A week ago, I didn’t want to be bothered by it, now I cant wait to get out there and walk my little butt off. This race is much larger (and apparently more popular), than I first thought. There looks to […]

US Half Marathon 2005 Race Report

I should start off by saying, that despite the anticlimactic ending to the race ( due to the theft of the medals),and the lack of porta-pottys, this event was the best one Ive walked in so far. You couldn’t ask for better weather ( 60 degrees at start time) and you could actually hear the […]

We finished the race , but someone stole the medals

Today my friends and I crossed the finish line at the 2005 US Half Marathon, but we didn’t get our medals because someone stole them! We got to the end of the rainbow and there was no pot of gold… (Actually, there were several hundred people that didn’t receive their medals). Can you believe it? […]
