December 26, 2019

For the last 2 days, from the moment I got back to my car, I haven't been able to stop thinking about this run. I've been thinking about a Facebook/Instagram post, I've reached out to a few friends with my (much more brief) thoughts on the matter, but I just didn't know how to memorialize and share this feeling I felt. A feeling that was so fulfilling and so intense that it was unlike anything I...

"Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors,

and let every new year find you a better man."

- Benjamin Franklin

New Year, new you? Or something like that?

Either way, I'm trying to focus on looking ahead more-so than continuing to dwell on the major races that didn't go how I wanted them to. Time to move on, learn from those mistakes, and find myself a better man in the process.

2018 started off w...

General wrap up from the year.

July 25, 2017

Running sucks. Some days more than others, but in general, when you think about it. Running sucks.

We put our bodies through hell, lose sleep, deal with injuries, upset stomachs, lost toenails, and more! For what? So we can spend hundreds of dollars on sneakers, gadgets, and race fees? Yeah, pretty much...but why? Why do we do it? We all know why. It is because RUNNING IS AWESOME! It is because in those fleeting mo...

This is something I've asked myself many times in the past few months before and after registering for the race and something I've been asked at least as many times by other inquiring minds. It seems like a simple enough question on the surface, but the honest answer goes deeper than that.

First, what is the Vol-State 500k? From the race website: "The Vol-State is not just another ultra-marathon. It is much more th...

If there is one thing I've learned in my years of running and racing, it's that the most important thing you can do going into race day is to trust your body and trust in your training. There will be times when your training wasn't what you wanted it to be or when you were working through injury or you just weren't having a good training block; but all of those things need to be in the past. Leading up to race day...

"Just get me there - I've been working toward this for 4 years."

I'm not even completely sure who said this to me with about a mile to go in the race (maybe one of the John's that were with me?), but it may be one of the most memorable things anyone has ever said to me. Definitely during a race. All I remember is (getting choked up a little bit and then...) telling him that he would get there and to just stay right...

“If one could run without getting tired I don’t think one would often want to do anything else.”

— C. S. Lewis

2016 - what a year. This quote is of particular meaning to me when I think about the past year and my running through it. 2016 was also a great year for many other reasons, but for all intents and purposes we'll stick to the running here. It was by far my most successful as an athlete.

I think it is fair to...

I've been looking forward to the Vermont 100 Endurance Race weekend for several months, ever since my coach Amy asked if I wanted to crew for and pace her husband (Brian Rusiecki) for the race. I immediately thought this would be a great opportunity to help give back to Amy for the time and effort she has put into my training and also a great way to learn from a very accomplished ultra runner. I looked forward to...

John Muir once wrote: “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop away from you like the leaves of Autumn.” I don't think there is any better way to express how I feel while running through the mountains not worrying about what issues lie below th...

ABOUT ME

My name is Greg. I like to run. I like to run a lot. Occasionally I go for swims or bikes and try out the triathlon thing; but mostly I swim and bike so I can run. Also, I like to drink beers and eat all the foods. Sometimes I combine running with traveling and/or drinking the beers. I also love my Zoom Multisport and Somerville Road Runner teammates.
