06/22/2014 02:01:00 AM

This was my 3rd event in 2 weekends, but the way I liked to compare it, it was 10 miles less than last week’s race! Obviously, the 5K is its own beast since I’m running at a much faster pace, it’s just as difficult to run a 5K as it

San Diego Century 67-mile Bike Ride

06/22/2014 01:26:55 AM

The longest ride I’ve done prior to this event was 45 miles, which was pretty tough. I have no idea how other riders were able to do the 100-mile option for this ride! It definitely wasn’t a world record, but I completed the course! Res ...

06/22/2014 00:48:52 AM

04/19/2014 00:18:35 AM

Like all races I’ve ran the past year or so, I did not feel prepared for this race. I stopped running in the mornings  and started going to the gym after work (if it’s not too late and I feel motivated to go..) At the gym, I’ve bee

Race Report: 2014 Carlsbad Half Marathon

01/20/2014 00:14:18 AM

Looks like I’m making it a habit to run this race ever other year. When I ran it in 2010, it was my 2nd half marathon and it is still my fastest half to date at 1:28. I ran it again in 2012 and ran a decent time of 1:34:08. I just realized ...

UCSD Triton 5K Race Report

06/09/2013 22:38:46 PM

Hopefully this race report is even more ‘brief’ than the last one. It should be too, it was only a 5K; not even a week after last week’s half marathon! Because the race was so short, the slightest difference in results made a huge d

San Diego 2013 Rock n Roll Half Marathon Race Report

Two weeks ago, when we lost an hour due to daylight savings, I decided to start waking up early to run before work. Even though it was just 3-4 miles a day, it was more running that I had done in quite some time. Those two weeks of miles under ...

03/04/2013 03:17:13 AM

I won an entry to this race but wasn’t sure if I was going to sign up, even though it would have been my first organized ride. What I was afraid of was being the only male in this ‘beautiful ride for women’; fortunately they had a ride ...
