Tyranena Beer Run Half Marathon

This was my second year running Tryanena Beer Run Half Marathon. I was well trained and thought I had a pretty good shot of coming close to my time last year, which was a PR of 2:26. I spent a lot of time freaking out over the weather (about 38 degrees with 17 mph winds), […]

Lake Michigan Trail Half Marathon recap

So far, I’m pretty sure my shoulder hasn’t moved, but it’s hard to say for sure. The back exercises I’m doing include: […]

Trailbreaker Half Marathon recap

I might go for a run on Saturday

I haven’t been running too much since January, and before that I wasn’t seriously watching my miles since I trained for Tyranena in November. That a said, I’m thinking about running the Trailbreaker Half Marathon on Saturday with zero pressure. I don’t even know how I’ll do, other than, of course, I’ll finish it. I […]

Running plans for 2014
