2015 Stone Mill 50 Mile Race Report

NOTE: I have added to the end of this race report at the very bottom with a quick recap of my 2016 Stone Mill 50. The Leadup: My last race was Blues Cruise 50k on October 4th. After that I had planned on running the DWG 50k Fattass. I wasn’t sure how I would do there as […]

Run Like a Nut Half Marathon

This past Saturday, November 7, 2015 was my 7th half marathon. After a couple 50K races and a few 50 mile or more attempts, I pretty much wrote off road racing for a couple reason, none of which I go into here. However; the difference for me is that this race was my first race, […]

As a 43-year-old, my qualifying time for Boston is 3:15:00. For 2016, you needed 2:30 under your qualifying time to get […]

Oil Creek 100 – At Long Last

Sunday, October 18, 2015 At Long Last Sixty five and sunny is what smacked my face when I got off the plane after a red-eye from Seattle to Cleveland. Is it really October? That was my initial question. Oftentimes Ohio is mid 40’s, snowing, or just plain out miserable. I couldn’t believe that this was […]
