Icebreaker Indoor Marathon Relay - 1/30/16
Fire Emoji When Mark, owner of Fleet Feet Brookfield, asked me if I
wanted to join the Fleet Feet Racing Team in their attempt for the dub at the
Icebreaker Indoor Marathon Relay, I blindly yet eagerly accepted. My ignorant enthusiasm quickly turned to ap...

NO DAYS OFF - 2015
The above photo would at first appear to be a testament to
my weird fetish with order, numbers, or that fleeting-yet-tantalizing rush of
getting to cross something off a to-do list. Instead, upon closer inspection, you’ll
notice that this unique poster is i...

In Step Trail 7-Miler + Brookfield Zoo 5K + Apple Cider Century + Run&Roll Duathlon + Chicago Marathon + Lincolnwood Turkey Trot 5K+ Arnold Turkey Trot 5K
This race report will be a bit different than past posts,
simply because I’m lazy and haven’t kept up with blogging. Since my last report
(http://samwelchruns.blogspot.com/2015/10/ironman-madison.html), I raced a
7-mile trail race, a 5K, biked 100 miles, an...

Run For Walk 4.1
Despite the egregious lies of my last post (re: “racing soon”),
I finally got off my lazy tush and hopped into Northwestern’s Run For Walk 4.1-mile
race. While I haven’t totally transformed into a sloth just yet, these past 2
months of not racing became exc...

Hoka One One
WARNING: Sam gets all soul-searchy and weird in this
reflective mushy post! I’ve gone through much of my life with little direction or end
goal. It’s weird, because while I consider myself a very motivated and driven
person, there had never really been a de...

St. Patrick's Day 5K
This past Saturday, I raced the Colorado Springs St. Patrick’s
Day 5K, and ran the fastest 5K of my life to date. This race has it all: drama,
suspense, hot chicks. But before I delve into this epic journey for my new 5K
PR, I’d like to take the time to fil...

Chicago Polar Dash 13.1 - 1/9/16
Sometimes, without any reasonable explanation, races just
click. Whether it’s a good night’s sleep (nope) or incorporating a vegetable
into a healthy diet (never), a runner can only hope for those rare days where
running just seems easy. I had no reason to ...

Rudolph Ramble 8K - 12/13/15
While it’s a relatively small and short race, the Rudolph
Ramble was something I’d been looking forward to for quite some time. It’s not
often I can jog to the start of a race from my front door, and Chicago races
never disappoint in terms of seeing friendl...

Ironman Madison
Photographer basically told me I HAD to pose like this. I’ve been lazy writing this race report, mainly because I’ve
repressed much of this (literal) day’s worth of suffering and embarrassment.
But, the masses have spoken (actually, just Aaron), so without ...

Essence of Freedom – Memorial Day 5K (Deerfield, IL) - 5/25/15
Well, my loving followers/blog worshipers, I have finally made my long-awaited
return to racing! Despite a cross country move, 10 days in California, and the
start of my new job with HOKA ONE ONE, I was still able to pull off the dub and
a shiny new sub-17 ...

XTERRA Cheyenne Mountain 24K
It’s been quite some time since my last race – in fact, 4
weeks is the longest I’ve gone this year without racing! Despite that, I’ve had
some pretty solid weeks of training, with Spring Break, Jordan and Willyum
visiting me here, and a short trip back to C...

Winter Series #4
Woof. If there’s the perfect word to summarize the last race
in the Winter Series, this would be it. Since my last race two weeks ago, Colorado decided to be
Colorado, and we got veritably dumped on. Little did I know that February 14 th would be my last ti...
