2010 boston marathon
so yeah, i ran the boston marathon again back in april. it was my 6th boston and it did not go so well. okay, let me re-phrase: it went really bad from mile 15 until mile 21 and then went pretty damn good once i got over heartbreak hill.
over the first 13 miles, [...]
Yes, he really said it. Tony Kornheiser wins today’s “douchebag of the day” award for last week’s rant against cyclists on his ESPN sports talk radio show. Some of his comments are listed below; you can listen to the show here (11-Mar, starts @ 31:30) or read the entire transcript here. EDIT: ESPN [...]
Each year on March 15th, I try to reflect on what’s important to me so as not to dwell on what has been taken from me.
Today, I proud reflect on the combined efforts of a dedicated race committee, dozens of volunteers, several generous sponsors and nearly 1,500 runners which made for a huge party at [...]
It’s been a long time coming, but Google Maps has finally added “bicycling” as an option for mapping directions, a feature which bodes well for broader acceptance of cycling in the United States.
From an initial review, this exciting new feature was well worth the wait. Google has over 12,000 miles worth of cycling trails [...]
that’s right, online registration is open but probably not for long. i’m about to blast an email to everyone who ran last year (and some who did not) and i’m expecting this race will sell-out pretty quickly. check out supersunday5k.com for more info & watch this video-thingy i made.

Finally! Boulder Indoor Cycling, Colorado’s first indoor velodrome, opened in January. It’s only the second indoor facility in the USA and a huge win for fans of track cycling. Especially us East Coasters… we’ve been riding down the boulevard of broken dreams for years. From Pennsylvania to Massachusetts, plans for an indoor [...]
Until today, the longest training ride I’d ever done was 112 miles. That was one month ago, my third day here in Tucson. That was a small group ride out to the top of Kitt Peak w/ Rebecca M., Adam M., Shawn M. and Dan V.
Well, I’ve now got a new record, one which [...]
That’s right folks, 5 weeks from right now, many of us will be reveling in the glory of having run the Boston Marathon. How excited are you? (twitter users, use tweet tag #boston2009) I’m very excited going into this year’s race… and think I may finally eek out a sub 3:00 finish. (if [...]
Even though the Tucson Bicycle Classic went all wrong, I am happy today. Friday’s 3 mile TT was supposed to be my chance to finally do good in the “race against the clock.” “I’m a sprinter and a decent 5K runner so this is my race.” Yeah, fuggedaboutit. Low power + too much coughing = [...]
