The 2014 Boston Marathon!

It is hard to believe but the 2014 Boston Marathon has come and gone.  What a great weekend it was!   The weekend started out on a down note as the train from Trenton NJ, to Boston was delayed over three hours.  Rather than wait we made the decision to get our money back for […]

Arrived in Boston!

So the day started on a rough note. Our 7:47am train from Trenton, NJ to Boston did not show up as planned. There was a power disruption in Washington DC that ended up causing a 3 hour delay… so….. we got back got our money back and then we got in the car and drove […]

Final Training Run in the Books!

So my final training run before Boston here in Bucks County, PA is done. We soon leave for Bean-town and the big race! I believe I have done all I can to train for this. My coach, Dr. Jason Karp, put together a good plan and I believe I did a good job executing that […]

Just 5 Days Until BOSTON!

So the final fast running is in the books. Last Sunday I ran 11 mile run In Tyler State with 5 miles at “Marathon Goal” pace. The pace seemed easy even with the hills of Tyler, which are worse than the Hills on the Boston course, which is a great sign. This morning was my […]

Boston Training – New Coach, New Plan .. So Far So Good!

So starting with New Year’s Day I have a new coach and a new training plan for Boston. The reasons for the change were fairly simply. For one, I simply felt like I needed a change. Secondly, Johnny Marino Advanced Sports Chiropractic while an awesome coach, is going through so much, including recovering from surgery […]

Boston Training Week One!

Week one had it all. It started with snow and brutally cold temperatures and ended with temperatures well over 60F. I had to decide on a new training plan and ended up asking Dr. Johnny Marino to help me once again. Johnny has been going through so much recently that I wasn’t sure he would […]

Boston 2014 The Training Begins!!!

So today the road to Boston begins with an easy 40 minute run. I will be sticking to a plan thus winter and not focusing on the Bucks County Road Runners Winter Series. I have learned racing every weekend does not allow me to train properly for a marathon. I am excited to see how […]
