Much Needed R&R

Post-50 miler life has been interesting, to say the least. Personally, we've solidified a date for our wedding, booked a venue for the wedding and reception, locked down a place to stay for the wedding, bought a wedding dress, and booked a photographer. Heath-wise, that cold I got the week before the race took 6+... Continue Reading →

Now What?

    I sat down with the intention of writing a race recap for the Hyannis Marathon, and I just can't bring myself to do it. To sum it up, it went better than I had ever imagined it could. I was shooting for sub-4, and surpassed that goal by running a 3:50:24. I felt... Continue Reading →
