Raptor Ridge 1/2 marathon (again)

I would say I was just recovering from the Stairway to Heaven when this race rolled around, so I tried to be reasonable about goals. Then it was raining on race day. So, I was pretty happy that I was able to negative split the course and come in just under two hours.  There’s not … Continue reading »

Foxy half marathon (again)

Apparently this site is running the risk of turning  into the excuse-blog, but here goes anyway. Food poisoning a week before the race really set me back.  I had done a long run that previous Sunday, then ate something bad for brunch and was laid up in bed most of the week.  It wasn’t until the … Continue reading »

SD50 Trail Marathon

I’ve been slow to post this one because there are no pictures from the event. Frowny face! Also, I’m not that pumped about the race.   It was fine and all and I did probably slightly better than I thought I would, but this was the race that was supposed to be a 50 miler … Continue reading »

Lake Hodges 50K

I’ve been procrastinating about posting this one and it seems like it’s never going to happen the way I want with the detail I usually try to put in, so here’s a rough draft of the race: HR a bit high in the morning. Intestinal distress the previous night.  16 miles in, was ready to … Continue reading »

Raptor Ridge 1/2 marathon

After the NYC Marathon, I took quite a bit of time off to recover and then ease back into running. With the birth of my son in March, competition has definitely taken a back seat (and I’m fine with that). But, I still have the SD50 on my radar and am entered into the race … Continue reading »

NYC Marathon

I started the process of getting into the NYC marathon four years ago. Starting in 2010, I entered the lottery for race entry and was denied every year for three years. However, there was a rule that if you have 3 consecutive lottery losses, then you have guaranteed entry the fourth year. And though this … Continue reading »

Father Joe’s Villages Thanksgiving Day 5K

Since we couldn’t make it back east this year for Thanksgiving, I had to find a local race to run. A friend of mine told me about the 5K run in Balboa park and that seemed as good a race as any to me. Supposedly there were ten thousand people there but only about 2500 racing … 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 »

DDR Dirty Invitational Marathon

After a brutal 2011, I decided to keep the number of events for this year to a minimum. I  Started the year thinking that I’d do a short triathlon or two, but mainly get back to trail running, with the idea of doing the Noble Canyon 50K again. This led to a couple of half … Continue reading »

Cougar Run Half Marathon

Oh man, this one just started off bad. But even a bad trail race is still pretty good. For starters, I forgot my race bib at home. I was about 15 minutes into the 30 minute drive (and planning on getting there plenty early) when I saw a mini-cooper drive by with the windows all … Continue reading »
