Cap City Half Marathon 2013 Recap

Saturday, May 4, 2013 marked the third time I have run the Cap City Half Marathon and the 13th Half Marathon I have run over the past 4 years. This year the Cap City course was a little different than it was in years past. This change was made before the Boston Bombings, though there [...]

Emerald City Half Marathon Recap

Last Sunday I ran the Emerald City Half Marathon for the second time.  Last year I tried to set a PR (personal record) in this race, this year I set out to do it as a training run, as I have 2 more half marathons coming up this fall.  Normally I run my long runs [...]

Race Recap: Buckeye Classic 10K

This past Sunday I ran a 10K race at Highbanks Metro Park. Highbanks is notorious for the hills, which some have deemed “the cliffs of insanity”. Some of the trail is paved, but most of the hills are dirt and gravel with fallen leaves scattered about. The Buckeye Classic 10K is a race I [...]

Columbus Half Marathon 2011 Recap

Commit. Train. Believe. Achieve. Fitting that this is the official motto for the race that I just PR’d in!

I DID IT! Shiny new PR (personal record) for me! I finished the race in 1:57:31 yesterday – my previous PR was 2:01:22 in the same race in 2009. I don’t think I have ever [...]
