  • Day496 Schedule

    It’s that time again, to pick what races will I be doing for next year. Scheduling is so hard. Since when I started running, I always wish I have an event coordinator because I hate making plans. I like planning (or having one), I just don’t like choices I need to make. I usually end […]

  • Day442 races to come

    I can’t wait till the weekend to share! I just signed up for my races for next year and they are… 1. One City Marathon (VA) 2. Grandma’s Marathon, (MN) 3. lastly as of now, Salisbury Marathon (MD) I am most hyped about the One City Marathon because I think I have been waiting for […]

  • Day439 Interlude

    My head is swimming with races. I hope I have not bored my readers with so many race reports. Yes, this is not normal, but racing is back in full swing. Many of the races that were planned for 2020 finally are taking shape this year or I already did them. As I mentioned a […]

  • Day397 Top 10

    I am a bit vain this year to do a top 10 of 2020 of my runs. 2020 compares to 2019, let’s see. 2019 had tons of going on. I ran my first 50 miler plus going to Chile afterward for Patagonia and did many other stuffs. Thought can’t top that, can I? But 2020 […]

  • Day327 MCM canceled

    It is official. There won’t be a Marine Corps Marathon this year. Not disappointed at all since this has been the pattern of last four months. Kind of expecting it because MCM is a big event and there is no way to host any race over 500 people people in this period much less the […]

  • Day319 Back to normal

    Things are back to normal for me. I am scratching my head what to write. I have not started back on my regular run. I should be able to run. I feel healthy. 100M /100K, did not sap me of my strength. At least, I don’t think it was that damaging to my body. I […]

  • Two for one

    Day 123 / York & St Michaels I did a half marathon and a full marathon in one weekend. It was amazing. Looking back it doesn’t seem that hard because I have done hikes at that length over a weekend, but I was fearful when I signed up. Granted hiking and running is not the […]

  • When nothing to do

    Day 117 When I have nothing to do, I read up on races and what races to run. I came across a funny race called Flying Monkey Marathon. I won’t able to do it this year but this race attracted my attention. I have been too overly concerned about a race course being certified, but […]

  • Misc – Random Thursday

    Day 101 I signed up for few more races. Now don’t remember what I signed up. The biggest race was JFK 50 Miler in November. I wrote about of not doing this race because I might not recover in time for December hiking /trek. Couple things, Earth shattering thing happened in my life last week, […]
