Did I say I was cutting back on races in 2014…. I think it’s a process… This is cutting back. What do you have planned for 2014?

Race #4 of 2014 (My 43rd Finish Line): B.A.A. 5k – Boston 5K – Boston Athletic Association, April 19


I never thought I would run in a race associated with the Boston Marathon and/or BAA.  Today I was honored to be running the Boston 5k. It was an experience unlike any other. “Humbled. Grateful. Excited ! So many words…. I get to play a very small part in a very big thing.”  …For many obvious reasons I […]

Hello Mr. Scale?! Just checking in, I crossed my 40th finish line today!


…that’s what I thought – You’re a douchebag and I hate you. You haven’t changed. Once upon a time, I liked you. At the end of 2010 I started walking on the basement treadmill and drinking shakeology. (that treadmill that was purchased in 2005, mid-pregnancy of my first son – it collected dust until my second […]

First 5k of 2014. St. Pats Providence, RI


My 2014 running plan is slightly more laid back. with no plan. I hadn’t thought about doing this run until a few weeks before, my girlfriend asked me to run it with her. Although she ended up not being able to run it, I was thankful I signed up and ran. This is my “anniversary […]

#13 in #13in2013 – Mansfield Race for a Cure 10k *Yes!* My first 10k, Nov 30th


I didn’t expect too much signing up for my first 10k. “I could do it, right? It was just a couple more miles than my last. I did it on the treadmill.  What’s the worst, I’ll walk some.” Well I didn’t. I did it non-stop! Although I didn’t take many pics, it was still ‘the […]

#12 of #13in2013 – @PellBridgeRun, Newport RI, Nov 10, 4.2 Miles


By far my most anticipated race of the year, I know there are many but this one ‘has me’ to say the least.  I love it.  You get to run over the Newport Pell Bridge?!  Amazing, Yes. It was my third year completing this run but my first time doing it NON-STOP.  That’s right, non-stop. […]

#11 of #13in2013 – @FoxboroughRCS Healthy Bodies/Healthy Minds 5 & 10k Road Race Foxboro, MA, Nov 2, 2013


Surprised myself with this run, second non-stop run in a row.  Placed 54/94, Placed 10th in my Age Group, Chip, Time 32:38.0, Pace 10:32/M The event was very well put together, goody bag and swag was none too shabby…  Loved it ! It was my first time running this race, the course was great, flat […]

#10 of #13in2013 – Zombies!! Run. High Five or Jump. Norton XC and Track RUNNING DEAD ZOMBIE 5K RUN


Today was my first zombie 5k.  I didn’t know what to expect…. The zombies were very convincing.  I got a handful of the undead to give me a high five, and jumped over one that was crawling along the course!  There was one zombie that gave me the chills when he bursted out from behind […]

#9 of #13in2013 Color Me Rad – Providence RI Sept 28th #Rad #ColorMeRad #5k


This was quite the fun run ! I was looking forward to it for most of the year. It was different than any other runs I have done because I got to involve the kids, family and friends. The boys were both excited but nervous when we first arrived. I didn’t think too much about […]

#8 of #13in2013 Foxboro YMCA 5k

2013-09-21 10.26.05

My 4 year old has been on this YMCA 5k with me before, last year – but not like this.  With his own bib and chip !    He was pumped, and ran like he owned it. When I was pushing him in the stroller  he continued to push me (pic below) with his words […]
