Boston 2017 -PRE Race thoughts..

It has been years since I have posted on this blog but I feel the need to put down some thoughts prior to the Boston Marathon this year.  As many know last year was a total disaster.  I had been injured much of the winter and went into the race not changing my goals which […]

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 […]

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 […]

23 Miles in the Cold Rain on the Hills of Tyler State Park Never Felt So Good!

    OK, so here I am writing this post again.  Somehow all the text vanished and I was left with just the photos on this post.  I will do my best to recreate my post from this morning.   Today’s run starting at 6:00am when it was still dark.  It was cold, rainy and […]

Less than a Month Until BOSTON!!!

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 […]

USATF National Masters 5K Cross County Championships

It has been some time since my last blog post.  Maybe a bit burnt out of blogging after the Maccabiah Games or maybe just lazy.   My next big race was the USATF National Masters Cross Country Championships which were held in Flemington NJ this year.  I was lucky enough to be selected to run […]

A Good Week of Training in the Books..

So this week coach Marino had me jump back into things. I was a bit worried coming off the marathon by my legs seems to survive it fairly well. I have had some on and off twinges in the plantar fascia of both feet. I am using both a boot and the step stretch which […]
