Boston Marathon 2014: #ElliotStrong

I had a lot on the line.  Days leading up to the event, the smack talk on Facebook began. The bet was placed: I’d have to evacuate from Arizona and grow a beard if I didn’t break three hours. I had to perform… or I could lose everything. Training: Preparing for the Boston Marathon was […]

Phoenix Marathon: Like a Boss

A little tidbit before I begin: Three years ago, I ran my first marathon barely breaking the 4:30 barrier.  It was a huge accomplishment at the time just to finish and run 26.2 miles.  It still is one of my proudest moments crossing the line at my first marathon.  I’ve trained hard the past three […]

PF Chang’s Half Marathon: Montana Made Mojo

I wasn’t intending to race at all.  My run training has been very minimal the last several weeks. I was bummed seeing all my AZ friends racing.  Then, Linsey tweeted that she’d be running the half too.  Now, I’m really bummed. I drive to Phoenix Saturday afternoon to pick up my bib number, still undecided whether […]

California International Marathon 2012 : Sub 3 in the Sac

Ten days out from race day, I began checking the Sacramento forecast daily. With a week to go, there was a 60 percent chance of rain, overcast, with small wind gusts. Perfect running weather. It seemed like the conditions worsened each day. Three days away from the race, there was a 100 percent chance of […]
