HAT 50K 3/19/16: Spoiler alert! I quit!
I really enjoyed the HAT run last year.  I had a great time and really wanted to come back this year to exact some revenge on the course and go sub-6 hours.  Goal like this are usually accompanied by some kind of dedicated training plan in order to execute ...

Bouncing Buns 6K 6/20/15: Evening out those tan lines
Running in the nude wasn't really a thought that ever really crossed my mind for an actual race.  I'd done it in college (spraining my ankle in the process) while streaking the frat across the street from mine as was tradition at the end of "hell week," but...

Sly Fox Fox Trot 5K 5/30/15: Way cool race and party
I found the Fox Trot on one of my go-to race sites, Pretzel City Sports .  They manage and time the race and did an awesome job as usual.  There are also a few other brewery-themed runs I'm pursuing on   http://www.greatamericanbreweryruns.com/  which, link...

Country Music Half Marathon 4/25/15 - First Race-Vacation
This past weekend I ran the Country Music (part of the Rock'n'Roll race series) Half Marathon in Nashville.  This trip was randomly planned about 6 months ago on a random Saturday morning when Kristen and I woke up and thought we'd just find a cool place to...

HAT RUN 50K 3/21/2015
I was told my ultra-runner membership had expired soon after my DNF at Ironmasters last year so I felt like rather than letting it go, it was time to punch that card again.  I chose the HAT 50K, in Havre de Grace, MD for my race back in November.  I'd volun...

Celtic Solstice 5 miler & Patterson Park Beer Mile 12/13/14
I've been lazy with my race reports so here's a bit of a late recap of our second effort at back to back races we did in 2013.  We really liked the Celtic Solstice 5 miler, especially the awesome race swag so we signed up again.  This year's swag was an awe...

Fall Fest and Across the Bay Bridge 10K Run 11/8-9/14
Running multiple races in a weekend is a lot of fun.  I imagine it's a good test of resilience to be able to race and bounce back.  Of course it's all dependent on the level of exertion and I admit I didn't go 100% on the first few but I did have a nice rec...

3/1/2015 Garsoe-Schermerhorn Memorial Masters Swim Meet Pentathlon
After nearly 15 years, I have finally competed in a swim meet.  I signed up for a really cool meet in Bensalem, PA, about an hour from home about 2 weeks prior to the event.  It seems like there's not very many meets nearby based on what I can find on usms....

North East Olympic Triathlon, 8/24/14: Race Report
I enjoy triathlon.  It's a hard sport to finish a race in, harder even to be competitive.  I want to be competitive and in the top 10% of amateurs.  What I have come to understand after this weekend is that there is not much room in deviating from a trainin...
