This 5k was something special for a few reasons. I had told a girlfriend I’d run her first 5k with her. We talked about it a lot and she had been training, really pushing herself and body. I was preparing to run or ride a race every weekend in Sept when I got the txt… […]

A week removed from my first 5k of 2013 I am wishing I was back on the beach! Although it was a very frigid, windy morning on a Rhode Island beach i truly enjoy this run. It’s one of the smaller races with only 130 runners. Having (sortof) planned out how long I would be […]

Sensata 5k – #5 of #12in2012


This past Sundays 5k was a flat road race… I ran it non-stop, which was my only goal for the day. I got a 9:53 first mile and sprinted the last 1/10 to finish in 32:00 – it was not a chip timed run, so I’d like to think I was a few second shy […]

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012 After about two months since my last 5k, this Rhody 5k at Twin River seemed very similar to last year.  It is my 4th run of the year, same as last year… although it was my fourth ever, this year it was my 14th ever. It seemed as if there were far […]
