Seafair Pirate Run photos are online!
I know that event photos are a money stream for a lot of races. But I LOVE a race that lets you download your images for free. I mean, sure, add a sponsor logo -- AND make them easy to share -- and they'll pay for themselves in word-of-mouth marketing next ...

Dream girls' day out! Deena and Joan to run this year's Chicago Marathon
It's not secret that I am a fan of Deena Kastor, who, when I was first starting out, I frequently referred to as "the sweetheart of American marathoning". No, really. One year I even made one of her recipes to take to Thanksgiving Dinner. She's one of my al...

Run THROUGH the finish line, not TO the finish line...
The Peachtree Road Race is one of America's iconic races. It's an Independence Day tradition, and tens of thousands of people enter the lottery for their chance to run this 10K in Atlanta. And then, this year, this happened. photo from wzzm13.com American r...

Seattle Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon race report
Still feeling happy … and a little sore … from running the Rock 'n' Roll Half Marathon on Saturday. It was a perfect Seattle summer day: skies were Perry Como blue, nice and cool in the morning, and I never got too hot… not like earlier in the week! persona...

101 Tasks in 1001 Days - 250 days in
I wish I could tell you that I'm ahead of schedule -- that in the first 250 days I have completed a quarter of my tasks. But I can't. Part of it is the way I wrote the tasks -- some of them, such as #77: "Prepare 1 new recipe / month" won't be "done" until ...

Beat the Bridge 8K race report
Beat the Bridge is one of Seattle's great races. But somehow I have never run it. Looking over my race calendar, it looks as though we've been out of town most years -- Sage Rat Run in 2014, Rock 'n' Roll Portland in 2013, Bay to Breakers in 2011 … and I th...

Beat the Blerch 2015 -- let them eat birthday cake!!!
Last year, amidst the frenzied registration morning, Wil and I secured entries to the inaugural Beat the Blerch Half Marathon. All 2500 spaces sold out in about 30 minutes, and a waiting list was started. Cue much consternation, anger, sadness -- all the st...

Sage Rat Run 2015 -- holy cats, have you seen these medals???
We ran the Sage Rat Run last year -- both the half marathon on the Saturday and the 10K option of the Dirty Rat Run on the Sunday. Both events were fantastic -- really thoughtfully planned, organized, and run. And, of course, AMAZING MEDALS:  The courses ar...

101 Tasks in 1001 Days November Wrap-Up
It seems like the days are zooming past -- how is it December already? -- and I worry, sometimes, that I'm not getting much traction on this project as I'd like! But it's good to take this chance to look back and see where I've made at least some progress. ...

Rock 'n' Roll Vancouver Half Marathon race report
With a start time of 8:15 (so civilized!), I didn't have to be up until 7:00. Had some leftover pizza for breakfast (perfect!), got dressed, and headed out to walk the few blocks to the start. Other than visiting the girls at the Brook VIP Porta Potty, I ma...
