Bridges to Brews 10K

This was my first 10k and first organized run after a couple years off. The location was fun. Right downtown at Waterfront so there was a great festival air with about 25 breweries representing plus other local stuff.

2016 Cayuga Trails 50 Race Report

After that week I had exactly 6 weeks, including any kind of taper, to prepare for Cayuga 50. I use the FIRST method for road marathon training which is three key workouts, all pretty hard, and […]
