To have a good race at A1-A, you HAVE to still feel good at this point, this is where it's important to begin the fight to get home on time.
26.2 Of all the things I could have been concerned with, a stomach issue late in the day wasn't on the list. I remember an old guy running next to me near the half/full split, asking if I was going to continue on to finish the full marathon. After answering "Yes" he harped all over sharing … Continue reading Miami Marathon 2018

There were fewer people than usual, Spring Break travel and time off claimed a few of our regulars. We did the warmup in Alton and were … Continue reading No one will be jumping up from their desks today
