3 Days of Syllamo Race Report

This is not the race report I expected to write. This is not the race report I was prepared to write. This is not the race report I have any business writing. Last year I had the very good fortune to be introduced to 3 Days of Syllamo, a 3 day stage race in the…

Ouachita Switchbacks 50k Race Report

1) Then sometimes it decides to start sleeting and raining down little ice pellets 5 minutes before the race starts. Well that’ll make things fun! 2) It’s a mountain race, minus the altitude.

People Who Aren’t Runners

Over the past six months or so, I’ve noticed something. On my daily commute to work, I drive through a part of town that isn’t exactly what one would call wealthy. The local hospital is located firmly in the middle of this neighborhood filled with blue collar, hard-working types. The houses are all small, built…

I Would Love To Run Your 5K

Recently, a co-worker of mine has been trying to get into better shape and lose a few pounds. I try not to talk too much about my personal life at work, but he knows I run from time to time, so he has begun coming in and reporting his progress to me. “Hey man, I…

I Am A Runner

I am a runner. I give you this information not to inform you of one of the many ways I fill my time, but to tell you who I am, how my brain works, how I function. I am a runner. You see, when I say I’m a runner, I don’t mean it in the…
