Solana Beach Duathlon

I wanted to be sure that I got a multi-sport event in this year, and since it has been more than 2 years since I’ve done any swimming, a duathlon seemed like the smart choice.  Also, not wanting to have to travel to race, just about the only option was the Solana Beach sprint duathlon … Continue reading »

Remission Rocks – 5K (again)

This one is an LLS fundraiser my friend Brad puts on. I made really reasonable goals since I’d only run a handful of times since destroying myself at the DDR marathon. What I didn’t count on was the rain and being hung over. For the record, I don’t recommend being hung over for a race. It … Continue reading »

Kendra Payne Memorial Triathlon

Four years ago, the Kendra Payne Memorial Triathlon (a.k.a. UCSB Triathlon) was the second tri I’d ever done. Last year, I decided to do it again, but got rained out. So, I thought I’d give it another go this year! Prior to this race, I swam exactly one time since the Carpinteria Triathlon – 800 meters, in … Continue reading »

Christopher Daily 5K Turkey Trot (2011)

The final race in my series of 10 (now 11 actually) to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society was the Christopher Daily Turkey Trot. This is a 5K race in Saratoga Springs NY, near where my parents live and this is the third year my family has participated in the race. It was not … Continue reading »

Remission Rocks – 5K

For event #9 of 10 to raise money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, I ran a 5K charity that benefits the LLS through Team in Training. How meta is that? My friend Brad from the VineTeam put on this short trail race as part of his fundraising for IronMan New Zealand in 2012 (he’s raising … Continue reading »

Goleta Beach Duathlon

Originally, the Goleta Beach Triathlon was supposed to be a 1/2 IronMan distance and I was signed up for it, knowing full well that it was only two weeks after a the Vineman 1/2 IronMan. When the race director announced that they couldn’t get the permits for the longer distance and had to limit the … Continue reading »

Scripps Ranch 4 Miler

Scripps Ranch was celebrating it’s 40th anniversary by putting on a 4-mile road race. This is kind of a unique distance and since I had been training for a 10K and 5K recently, I figured a 4 miler would be a pretty good distance to try out. Come racing morning though, I just didn’t feel … Continue reading »

Christopher Daily Turkey Trot (5K)

Last year, I ran this same race at the end of a tough season that had really taken a toll on me. Surprisingly, I ended up taking third in my age group, but didn’t even realize it until I was back in California. This year, since I had recently been doing a lot of speed … Continue reading »

Miramar MCAS Monster Dash (10K)

Being more of an endurance guy, I never really train for shorter distances (e.g. 10K), instead I end up running them as part of training for marathons or as the run leg of triathlons. Maybe I’ve lead on about this already, but if not, in the last year I’ve been consumed by the fear of … Continue reading »

Reef and Run

On Tuesday nights in the summer at East Beach is another multisport event called Reef and Run. Similar to Nite Moves, you can do a swim, a run or an aquathlon. It’s a little different though in that there are multiple distances for the swim (1 K or 1 mile) and run (2 or 4 … Continue reading »
