One Week

In one week…. I will get up, excited, nervous and a little scared. I will get on a school bus and take that long ride from downtown Boston to Hopkinton. I will try to befriend runners on the bus. I will park myself near the porta potties and look for some friends to hang outContinue Reading

Boston Bound…again

It has been a very long time since I have written a post here.  I have been in a strange head space (more on that later). I have a half dozen drafts started and I haven’t been able to muster up the energy/creativity to finish the posts. This week my brain has been spinning andContinue Reading

Happy Birthday to the coolest kid EVER

When my High Nuun team started talking about another ultra relay, I got excited. When I realized it was September 6, I was bummed.  I told the team I would be out because it is my son’s birthday.  Then the emails came fast and furious.

Ragnar Colorado Preview #HighNuun and High Altitude= Good Times

On Friday morning I will run my fourth long-distance relay and my second as part of an ultra team. I have not been doing a lot of running this summer, so I am not sure how well I will do.  I am pretty sure I will be able to run all the distances.  It remainsContinue Reading
