Got an entry into the NYC Marathon
It's been a long time since I have written anything here!

I am prompted to start back by the fact that I was accepted in the lottery to run the NYC Marathon. I had entered on a bit of a whim, not really expecting to get in. I have never run the NYC marat...

Mid-March update
Well, it's now getting pretty close to the race, although as I type this it's snowing pretty hard as I look out the window.

I ran an 18 miler today, and it was really quite a slog. I struggling a bit with a cold right now, but I was still surprised how muc...

**
It's eight weeks to the Boston Marathon, so I'm starting to feel that I'm running out of time to get really fit.

The Snowpocalpse has been a problem; it makes it hard to get the long runs done. Yesterday I ran 13.5 on a route that was basically up Heartbr...

Back on (the) track
I have decided to run the 2015 Boston Marathon in support of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center's Kidney Disease Research Fund.

I had thought last year's Boston Marathon might be my last marathon, but my knee held up well, and after the race I felt I cou...

118th BAA Marathon
Well, I completed this year's Boston Marathon in 4:13:13. I had hoped to run under 4:00, but that probably wasn't realistic given the relatively warm day, my light training miles (average 17.5/week since 1/1/14), and the fact that it had been 10 years sinc...

I ran what will be my longest training run on this past Saturday, a 20 miler.  I had originally been planning to run the Eastern States 20 Mile Race on Sunday, but the forecast was so ominous that I decided to run Saturday am, when the weather was really qu...

6 weeks to go...
I am feeling a bit anxious about the approach of Patriot's Day.  My mileage is very light - 20 miles per week (actually, I bit less).  I ran 10.6 yesterday.  The good news was that my knee felt fine, and also feels fine this am.  The bad news is that I was ...

Super 5 race, 2/2/14
I was pretty pleased with my run in the Super 5 race on 2/2/14. To back up, I ran 12 miles on Saturday, 2/1/14.  I felt OK, not great.  I ran with a few others, so ran the first 9 or so at a pretty good clip.  I then fatigued a bit, and ran the last 2 quite...

Training Update
I just got in from my long run for the week - 12.2 miles.  I didn't feel as strong as I did on last week's 10.7 mile run.  I think it was a combination of fatigue - I did a somewhat strenuous bike trainer ride yesterday -and the snowy roads/sidewalks. Overa...
