#Runstreak – 6 Months!

#Runstreak – 6 Months!

Jun 03

It has officially been 6 months since I started my runstreak, which began back on December 3nd, 2014!  I’ve logged 462.5 miles over six months (putting me on pace to finally crack 1000 miles in a year based on increasing volume), and I’m feeling absolutely great!  My pace has steadily increased, my foot feels 100%, and I’ve rediscovered the love for running that has evaded me...

Running every day as part of a #runstreak presents a number of challenges, both physical and mental.  One of those challenges, as simple as it sounds, is keeping myself from getting bored out of my mind from running all of the same routes over and over again. Inspired by a conversation I had with fellow training addict Marvin Tabangay (who I come to find out is doing something similar in Santa...

Had you told me 2 years ago that I would be writing about running 100 days in a row, I would have called you nuts.  Crazy.  Batshit Crazy.  Run 100 days in a row?  Me?  The guy with the jacked up foot, knees, and back?  The guy who lost the love for the run years ago and has been searching for it ever since?  The guy who is bike obsessed, swim happy, and completely run...

I’ve tried so hard to not let weeks go by without a blog post, but work finally got the best of me.  Back on the weekend of the 4th of July I got hired to compose for an ABC Family Christmas movie, and I’ve been underground ever since.  The turnaround was tight and I had to write music at a blistering pace throughout the entire month of July.  It was an intense but completely...

Marine Corps Marathon or Bust

Marine Corps Marathon or Bust

Mar 27

Considering I’m hobbling around on crutches, only 1 week into 8 weeks of boot-laden hell, it seems a little ridiculous to be thinking about signing up for a marathon, let alone actually doing it. However, I’ve known for quite some time that I wanted to run a fall marathon this year, and the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC is one that has been on my bucket list for several...

On The Outside Looking In and Dreams of Ultrarunning

On The Outside Looking In and Dreams of Ultrarunning

Mar 24

Its only my first weekend on crutches, and I’m already jumping out of my skin.  I’m not going to lie, this weekend has been tough.  Not only has it been tough because I’m hopping around on two sticks that are chafing the crap out of my armpits and making everything a complete pain in the ass, but its been tough because so many of my former TNT Ironteam teammates are out there...
