I awkwardly walked past the front desk of the mega-gym as I hesitantly pointed to the physical therapy office in the corner of the building not knowing if I needed to check in or if it was okay to just keep going. I didn't know exactly what was in store for the next 45 minutes, I only knew I had heard good things about Active Release Technique from friends and other runners, but this would be my first experience.

“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...

143.39.

I keep thinking to myself that this number is absurd. 143.39 miles. In 24 hours. I still can't believe that I did it. I mean, in my heart I knew I could, and it is what I was aiming for, but to have such an ambitious goal realized after over a year of hard training for this very number (or at least 140) is still kind of surreal.

Let's back up a little bit. Back to August 16, 2012 in Burlington, Vermont. Thi...

December 9, 2016

A phrase often used by runners and athletes, when the hard work is done before the big race/game day. Some brief internetting led me to this article that gives credit to an old Towson University football coach.

What it means to me is that all the practice and all the day to day stuff is done. Done are the 4am wake up calls. Done are the 30-40 mile weekend training runs. Done are the 100 mile training weeks. Done ar...

 On the morning of our wedding, Woo and I participated in the Lobsterman Triathlon. Before the race it was announced that as part of the race the organizers were giving away a trip to Aruba to compete in the Challenge Aruba half-iron distance race.

I briefly even heard this as the race was beginning announcements before the first (WEDDING) wave of the race for our group. We did the race and went on about our day an...

I've been meaning to write a few words about this product since my last 24 hour race, the Run Around the World, in Nashville Tennessee a little over a month ago. It should be noted that this is my first product review and although I got this tube to try for free, I was not asked to write about my experience or promote their product in any way and I am in no way being compensated for this review.

The Run Around the...

Three weeks later and I'm still having trouble putting words to paper (or computer as it is) about my second attempt at the 24 hour timed event. I knew going in that I didn't put in quite the training miles for this race as I did for my first 24 hour back in May, especially that last couple of training blocks. This was mostly due to the fact that I wanted to try to sneak in a 2017 Boston Marathon Qualifier, which...

September 22, 2016

On Saturday morning, the 17th of September, my fiance and I decided to race the Lobsterman triathlon (after some gentle nudging from Lisa, the President of our triathlon team Zoom Multisport).  On the morning of our wedding. With all of our closest friends, family, and teammates. This would be our last race together as individuals. At this point, with logistics for getting 90+ people to an out-of-state island wedd...

"Your strength is your endurance" - Coach Amy

I went into this race not feeling very confident in myself, not having run a marathon well in a long time. The last marathon I went out and tried to run as fast as I could was the 2015 Walkway Marathon in Poughkeepsie, NY. Long story short, it was the worst executed race I've ever run an included a nice 10+ minute positive split on the way to finishing just over 3:05 an...

Before racing the 2016 edition of the Sweltering Summer 8 Hour ultra I had won 6 races overall in my running "career" (including the 2015 edition of this race). I had the mindset going into this race that it would absolutely be my 7th career win. That's how I tend to approach most races these days,  unless of course I know it's not realistic. Also, coming into this race I had never successfully "defended" a title...

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.
