The Willimantic Classic

Earlier today, I posted to Twitter and IG information on the Willimantic Classic….it is occurring that first weekend of May and should be a good race. As I struggle through my rehab, I am exploring this one as an option to run in the spring. Here is the tweet and IG from this morning You…

5 for Friday: Race Weekend!

If you haven’t noticed, my posts this week have been very limited (Father and Son’s was it). Reason being? I have hit a small “writers block” and I honestly don’t have paragraphs of thoughts to share with you! (I am still tweeting on Twitter though and Instagram is “ramping up.”). I realized today though that…

Next Race: Newburyport Half Marathon

In May of last year, I ran my first race in over 25 years! It was the Fuel Newburyport River Run Half Marathon and by the end of it, my energy was gone and I had trouble breathing! It was the first of a bunch of halfs I have run since and “where it all…

Reaching the Beach!

If you follow me on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook (all @bmacrunning), you already know that team #Guzmanguys “reached the beach” on Saturday. It was year three of this race for us and the team did well, even with one less runner (we ran with 11 versus 12) and injuries all up and down the roster….

Leg Talk for my relay to the beach!

A colleague of mine and I both are out of the office each year at this time (at least for the past three years). For him, he heads to charity golf tournament in the area. For me…well it is Reach the Beach time and as a result, the countdown to our first set of runs…

What is the RTB?

What is a BibRavePro?

My son said to me the other day, “What is a Bibrave pro anyway?” (He ends with “anyway” with many of his questions – he is only 6). Well to answer his question and for others benefit as well, here is a rundown of what a BibRave “pro” is. (From this link) And here is…

A Time to Remember

I am a HUGE Billy Joel Fan. I have been to many of his concerts over the years and I still remember the first time I saw “Piano Man” played at the Old Boston Garden over 20 years ago. What I like most about Billy (like I am friends with him or something) was his…
