General wrap up from the year.

August 25, 2017

For all the unpleasantness and disappointment I took away from the state of Tennessee last month, I experienced an equal or greater amount of kindness and support along my (shorter than planned) journey. This kindness is one of the things that people rave about for the Volstate 500k. The local residents and families who exhibit this kindness are often referred to as "road angels" and they are held in very high reg...

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...

I lay here, on the side of State Highway 22 somewhere between Huntingdon and Clarksburg, TN in a little dead end driveway along a fenced in animal pen around 1am, not even 24 hours into the famed Last Annual Vol State 500k Road Race. I type in the phone number for Jan, the driver of the "meat wagon" to signal my intent to quit the race. Then I deleted the numbers from my screen and closed my eyes. A few minutes la...

Do you ever have that haunting feeling, like you left something undone? Unaccomplished? Unfinished. Yet, you can't really put your finger on it? Well, fortunately (?) I can put my finger on it, but unfortunately there is nothing I can do about it. That feeling has haunted me day and night since the April Run4Water 24 hour event back in Nashville. It's this feeling, of failure, that has motivated me to run endless...

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...

It was several years ago that I was first introduced to the idea of running the Boston Marathon not once, but twice in a day. This was well before my first ultra and before my first ever Boston Marathon...but something in me said "I want to do that one day."

April 17, 2017 was that day.

After qualifying at the 2016 Quebec City Marathon, 2017 was set to be my 4th running of the Boston Marathon. Though, at the time wh...

"You're just not there yet."

These words were uttered to me by a very close friend the day after my soul-crushing disappointment of a race this past weekend. I'm not sure if those are the hardest or the easiest words to hear in this case.

On one hand, maybe it's true. Maybe I'm just not yet capable of running 150 miles in under 24 hours. If that's the truth, then that's easy. I just keep running more and running har...

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...

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.
