NO JQRC run on the 17th

The Planned Off-Site St.Patty's Day Run at BRC is CANCELLED.  There is NO JQRC run on the 17th.

This was not an easy decision but since it was already an off-site it was easier to decide. The run on the 24th is still on at the Pub but that could change. The club is working with JQ Pub leadership to decide on a plan. There is a possibility that the sign-in process could be modified to keep everyone safe.

Back to Triathlons

This weekend I completed a mini-triathlon at the local gym. I'm calling it a mini since the distances don't line up within the typical race categories. The distances were 200 yd swim, 10 mile bike on a spin bike and 3 mile run on the treadmill. 

In my enthusiasm I started the swim at sprint speed. The first lap was feeling fast, but then the lactic acid creeped in and I slowed down to normal speed for…

JFK 50 miler review, nearly a year too late!

November 2019 already? Here is my JFK 50 race report from November 2018. It is a rosy race report because it is helped by the kind filter of time.

The last time I talked about this race, in October 2018, I was debating which shoes to use. I continued debating which shoe to use until the days before the race, but the snowy conditions on the hilly Appalachian trail section forced me to pick the…

Terror on Trail

Last night my daughter and I listened to Tales of Terror by The Dirtbag Diaries. It is, by far, my daughter's favorite annual episode. She gives this year's episode a 2 out of 3 on the terror scale. I scare easier than her, so I'm going to give it a 3. I had a hard time falling asleep and I'm going to be on edge the next time I get out for a run on the trails.

I'm trying to convince my…
