Triple Crown or Runner’s World Half and Festival 2014

Oh! So this is Instagram!
Not finishing a race is always hard, but not starting one is even worse! All that training, anticipation down the drain. After last years Runner’s World Half DNS, I vowed to come back this year and set a PR in all 3 races.

Cruising On Dry Land - Blues Cruise 50K

I zip up my jacket as I get into the car on this brisk Sunday morning. Temperatures are in the 40s which is the lowest its been in a while.  The heat is necessary to get my body warmed up and to clear up the windows. I double-check that I have all my gear ready. Quick Dunkin Donuts stop for some pre-race fuel and I am off toward Reading for the 2014 edition of Blues Cruise 50K.

What Kind of a Cuckoo Are You? Sloppy Cucko - Half

Is there anything better than a local race? Perhaps. Is there anything better than a local race that takes place on trails? Maybe. Is there anything better than a local race that takes place on trails and it is very inexpensive with great swag? No, there isn't.

Rethink Running – 3 Steps to Injury Free Running

We, runners, are an interesting lot. We often do not know when to stop. Every day, we go out and run. We follow our training plans blindly, regardless of how we feel that day. If the plan tells us to do a 5 mile tempo run, we go out and do it. 50 mile week even when something is bothering us, sure. We often ignore our body. Little niggle here and there, little soreness here or there, it is all normal, right? We shrug it off and keep running. And then it happens. The I word – the Injury.
