2016 Airbnb Brooklyn Half

Saturday was the 2016 Airbnb Brooklyn Half. I went out on this course for the 8th time, but this time I was undertrained, exhausted and one day into an antibiotic regimen to kill the sinus infection I was diagnosed with on Friday. So to say this wasn’t my best Brooklyn Half is an understatement. But, like the…

Ladies and Gents, LA and Skechers know how to put on a running party! From the Expo to the finish line, the LA Marathon was a super enjoyable experience.

in Race Reviews/Race Video by

Saturday was my first race for the 2016 season. Given that I’ve been out of commission for the past 2.5 weeks with a pulled muscle in my back (from bending down to pick up my son, yeah, hello 46, nice to meet you) I don’t think I faired so poorly. The race celebrates Joe Kleinerman,…

TCS NYC Marathon Expo and Dash to the Finish Line 5K

in Race Prep/Race Reviews/Race Video by

I love the week leading up to the NYC Marathon and it only gets better on Thursday, the day the Expo opens and 50,000 people filter through the convention center to pick up their race credentials, buy running gear and gawk at all the new shiny new gear they want from vendors. It’s like the…
