About Me

  • Running club(s):
  • Rave race:
  • Race that's calling my name:

    New York Marathon

  • I run because:

    I want to push myself to do things I struggled with when I was growing up.  I was never good at the sports I played but always was the best team member cheering on my fellow team mates.  Running allows me to start and finish without sitting on the bench.  I love that my kids run with me now and has offered us some really fun and rewarding memories.

Wow, what a race. I had sustained a few ankle injuries in the months prior to this race while training for it, so I was not even sure what to expect on the day of the race. However, the experience did not disappoint. The course is steep in many spots and some areas have minimal shade but the views and sights help you forgot about any running struggles.

You could tell that this race was very well planned. It seemed like they had thought of everything (even had live singers to sing the National Anthem).

If you are new trail runner this course is really perfect as you get a little of trail and road running. My only advise…. don’t forget to stop and take some photos.
