A Beautiful Run in Tyler State Park to Start a Busy Day

After a nice dinner last night with Boston Marathon friends I got up early this morning for a nice 8 mile run in Tyler State Park.  I did not sleep that well last night so I was a bit tired so getting started was a bit tougher than usual.   My first two miles were […]

Speedwork, A Great Item Donated and a Dinner I Was Lucky to Attend

So today was one of those busy days.  Some much going on at work, soccer practice for my son, and a speed workout looming.  Todays’s workout was 10 x 400m at a goal of 80 sec with a short 100m recovery.  Of course once again it was ridiculously windy with a big change of weather […]

Bucks Run for Boston – A Double Run Day

The day started with a very easy 4 mile morning run.  I have grown to love this run as it is quiet and I can be alone with my thoughts in beautiful Tyler State Park.  Coach Johnny King-Marino said this would become my favorite run and he was right… I was happy to get this […]

Working at the Bucks County Half Marathon and a Nice 15 Miler!

So today started early. I had to have my table set up at the Bucks County Half Marathon by 6:00am. I co-located my table with the Bucks County Speedsters tent. The speedsters are the local track club that has been kind enough to sponsor the Maccabi 5K and have added this to the calendar of […]

Another Double – Warm Temps and a Final Decision Boston

So today started with another nice and easy 30 minute run as the sun was coming up.  This is becoming one of my favorite runs. It is easy, it is quiet, it is calming.  My favorite part of the run is crossing under 332 and just listing to the water.   A nice way to […]
