Another crazy week with so much going on that ended in a (very good) way that I never expected!  I can’t get into those details right now but probably over the next week or so, I’ll hopefully be able to share.  But, right now, it’s time for the Monthly Goals – April. It was an eventful month with… Read More »

Salt Lake City Marathon Recap

A week has transpired since our race trip and that is about how long it normally takes for me to get the race summary posted, so here goes – the rewind of marathon number 7, the Salt Lake City marathon recap! It was just a few days ago that Wifey and me were enjoying a final… Read More »

Motivational Music Monday #9

Today’s Motivational Music Monday pick of the week post has a few race notes from the Salt Lake City marathon, which was just yesterday!  It was a reasonably short trip to Utah and not much spare time on the road to write the normal pre-race update or race recap.  But, there will be a full trip report… Read More »

Motivational Music Monday #8

It is that time of the week already and while it is Sunday night, fortunately for me and Wifey at Never A Dull Bling it is also race week, yayyyyy!!!  Just a three day work week before we head out Thursday on a mini racecation to run a marathon, not named Boston 🙂  But, before we pack… Read More »

Monthly goals check – March, and the first quarter of the year is over already!  Time for the monthly review of how the four major goals that I set for myself in 2016 are progressing as well as some other ramblings remotely related to running and racing in general that might be of interest. Goal:  Run 4 marathons in… Read More »

A busy week at work, sorta, if you count mind-numbing meetings and… Read More »

The past few weeks have been crazy busy, up and down, and wreaked havoc on my… Read More »

Friday Thoughts

I was going to post an update on the marathon training status as it has been a month or so since I’ve checked in on progress for the Salt Lake City marathon.  But, it’s been a crazy busy week and me and Wifey have spent a fun happy hour catching up on the trials and… Read More »

Lake Sammamish Half Marathon Recap

Last weekend, Wifey and I headed back to Redmond, WA for another race…our previous visit was for a fun 5K the week of Thanksgiving last year.  The modified course for the Lake Sammamish Half-Marathon also started from the same Town Centre mall and headed south along the East shore trail of Lake Sammamish to the same named state park, 13… Read More »

Training Update

It feels like I’ve neglected the site a bit this past week, though the reality is that it was just one of those weeks where work issues took precedence and blogging time just got squeezed out of the schedule, so a training update seems like a good idea!  Although I would normally just barely be finishing… Read More »
