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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

The triathlon. My first complete sprint triathlon. As i sit here typing I think back to the tri I am happy and proud of myself but admittedly at the same time, empty. I’m not sure how to explain it any other way. I suppose I miss all the fun that came from training, the days […]
