Adding an Old Friend to the Race Calendar…in Maine!

Yesterday I commented that I had added two races to my calendar for 2017. Yesterday, I shared with you the Newport Marathon. Today, I share with you an old friend…the Shipyard Old Port Half Marathon! I ran this half marathon back in the summer of 2015 – it was the first race that I truly…

November Running Report: Progress Being Made!

What does one say when they had just completed their best running month in the past 6 months? To steal a line from Bill Belichick, “I am onto December!” I cannot lie though – I am happy that my running in November was strong (100 miles at an 8:12 pace) but as this year has…

5 for Friday: The Home Stretch!

The day after Thanksgiving used to be the official “kickoff” for the holiday season when everyone flocked to the retail world on Black Friday to get the biggest and best sales from the likes of Walmart, Best Buy, etc. Then Amazon (and the rest of the Internet) raised the stakes, started a Black Friday week,…

Race Review: Running through the Foliage in Newburyport 

(This Review appeared on BibRave.com earlier today.

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 realized today though that…

I Run for Hope!

A few days ago during a #Runchat, one which was dedicated to running music, one member of the twittersphere mentioned the song “I run for life” by Melissa Etheridge. I had never heard this song before and figured it was new and I had just missed it. But to much of my surprise, it was…

Losing Track…

I have been on this running “voyage” over the past 1 1/2 years. I have blogged about race routes, lessons, shoes, Randoms and everything in between. And the blogging always had a point…to share to those who have and suffer with Psoriatic arthritis that life is not over with diagnosis but rather just restarting. Yes,…

Seeing Light when it’s Dark!

I recently posted that I was testing out a new product from XX2i – a pair of sunglasses called the Australia’s.
