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, [...]
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 [...]
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.
dare i say it after one measly week of three runs? hell yeah! last sunday i ran the jingle bell run 5k in a snowman costume (which was hard and counts for at least 4-5 miles.) then i ran 5 miles with the niketown crew on wednesday night. then yesterday, i [...]
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 [...]
After a busy January spent working on the Super Sunday race, I was ready to head south to Arizona for some serious winter training. My new ride, the $1,500 Green Monster, rolled outta’ Boston at 11:59pm Friday 2/6 and arrived in Phoenix, AZ late Monday night.
First order of business was to get on the [...]
Thanks to everyone that came out to race today…looked like you were having a lot of fun! I’m @ the volunteer party now – what a great crew.
Today’s results were a bit confusing to some people… two words: NET TIME. Remember how congested the start was? Race results are based on net (chip) time, so [...]
Yes! The shins felt okay for the Jingle Bell 5K this past Sunday and I ran a 17:57! I forgot to get my Santa costume on Saturday and thus missed out on the dash for cash. While only one santa finished ahead of me, it’s doubtful I could’ve finished as fast in [...]
I got to track practice @ MIT tonight but nobody was in the lobby. Instant first thought was “shit, i’m late.” Nope, right on time. Then noticed the lights were off upstairs so figured I screwed up dates and it’s tonight’s practice that is canceled, not next week’s.
Having rushed over from a [...]
I was so excited to run the Jolly Jaunt on Saturday morning… a 5K just a few blocks from home. But after running one block w/ my dog Libby, things weren’t looking too good.
Yeah, a blind monkey could’ve seen this one coming… OVERUSE INJURY! Last weekend’s 10.5 miler was too much too soon. [...]
