Marathon Spectating 101

Marathon Spectating 101

Fall means only three things to me, now that I’m far removed from my high school and collegiate cross country seasons. Fall means pumpkin beers, baseball playoffs, and marathons. There’s also a constant dread of the first frost, but let’s just focus on the positives. If you’re following my blog, chances are you know at least one person … Continue reading

“One if by land, two if by sea.”

I wandered the Boston Marathon expo on Saturday, picked up my packet and shirt, and shed a few tears about the race I wouldn’t run, thanks to continuing issues with my right hip. Thankfully it’s hard to stay sad at the Boston Marathon expo for long. I watched what I can assume was a first-timer … Continue reading

Last Saturday I had the extreme pleasure of attending the Millrose Games, my favorite running event. Each year I go to watch incredible high schoolers, collegians and professionals, and to feel the magic of Millrose.

In Sundays home game against the Tigers, some Yankees fans decided to boo their own players. Ugh. (Whatever happened to “root, root, root for the home … Continue reading

I have a stalker.

Don’t worry, it’s just my friend Kelly! Kelly sent this to me last night and it put a huge smile on my face. The tropical weather predicted for Marathon Monday should bring out record numbers of race supporters and cheer squads, but those who cannot attend are able to stalk track runners online or through texts … Continue reading

A sight to be seen

A sight to be seen

I started my running career in high school. Although we were the most successful team in our school, winning state and county championship banners for our gymnasium, most students and faculty probably didn’t realize cross-country and track teams existed. This, combined with my love of stupid jokes and cynical sense of humor, lead me to … Continue reading
