Motivational Music Monday on a Wednesday Birthday Edition Where were we?!!  Oh right, been a busy couple weeks and while I’ve been a bit absent from the blog recently, I have been doing my best to keep up with everyone on the reader.  But, nothing like a Wednesday edition of Motivational Music Monday to get… Read More »

Motivational Music Monday #37

It has now been over a month since the last Motivational Music Monday post!  I sense a trend and need to get back on point and on schedule!  I’ve been taking a bit of a rest break since our escapades at the Route 66 Marathon in Tulsa.  Apparently that has extended to blogging as well… Read More »

The Williams Route 66 Marathon Recap

Just over two weeks ago, Wifey and I headed to plains of the American Midwest for our final race of 2016 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.  So before the memories of another 26.2 miles (or in this case 26.8’ish miles) fade too far I best get on with The Williams Route 66 Marathon Recap.  This was my 11th marathon… Read More »

Monthly Goals Check – July

Well, now that we are well over half-way through August and I just finished, what turned into marathon number 10, we better have a quick look back at July, otherwise the year will end and the collection of monthly summaries will be incomplete.  And, that just wouldn’t be right.  I really need to try to… Read More »

Missoula Marathon Final Thoughts

A few Missoula Marathon Final Thoughts that didn’t quite fit into the race recap – I guess this is like the editors cut bonus content that they used to put on DVDs…do we still use DVDs? I best go ask my son because I’m pretty sure we’re supposed to stream everything and all we need to… Read More »

Rock ‘N Roll Seattle Marathon Recap

It’s been almost a week, it’s Friday, it’s Happy Hour and the pain has subsided so this seems like an appropriate enough time for a race review and the Rock ‘N Roll Seattle Marathon Recap.  This was a “hometown” race for us and for me another commute to the city not far from my normal… Read More »

Friday Bits and Pieces

So many ideas for subjects and so much to write about but not enough time to get anything out this week, so instead, just a quick summary of some general Friday ramblings as me and Wifey enjoy the traditional weekly hour of happiness. A busy week at work, sorta, if you count mind-numbing meetings and… Read More »

2015 Race Gallery

With race season officially ending on Thanksgiving Day at the Mukilteo 10K, here’s a quick look back through the 2015 race gallery.  It was not a huge year in terms of number of races but there were several quality events resulting in PRs in three of the four mainstream distances.  In addition to the racing and travelling, Wifey… Read More »

Training Summary Maui Week 1

Back in training and week 1 for the Maui Oceanfront Marathon is in the books…and time for a quick training summary.  It was really what I label a “break back in” period, after taking a couple of weeks to recover from Chicago.  This is probably the shortest post-marathon period that I’ve had before resuming training… Read More »
