On October 1st I ran the Shatterproof Rise Up Against Addiction 5K along side my dear friend Lynell and 3000 other people committed to fighting the stigma that keeps so many people struggling with addiction from getting the help they need. Shatterproof is committed to helping individuals and families affected by addiction with a focus on … Continue reading Rise Up: SHATTERPROOF 5k
For the second year in a row I ran the Tunnel 2 Towers race for the Stephen Siller Foundation. Last year I ran with my folks, but this year I am proud to say I ran with a team of my coworkers sponsored by Myriad as part of our charitable giving initiative. Our team ran … Continue reading Tunnel 2 Towers 2017
The Race to the "Creek" 5K took place on the 4th of July to raise money for the Patuxent High Cross Country team (That was my high school 100 years ago!). When my mom sent me a link to sign up for this 5K I was excited that I would be visiting Maryland that week … Continue reading Race to the “Creek” 5K
Another year another maniac. I've written before about this gritty muddy obstacle race and how dirty and intense it is, and all of that is still true. As the day of the race approached I found myself fearing certain obstacles more than in years previous. Year one, I tumbled over the "Blobstacle" with a decidedly … Continue reading Rugged Maniac 2017!
On June 3rd I joined some of my Rugged Maniac team mates for a fun run that bills it'self as "The World’s first Running Music Festival" at the Aviator Sports & Events Center in Brooklyn. The Night Nation Run website states clearly that if you are hoping for a PR, this is probably not the … Continue reading Night Nation Run!
On April 29th I got back into the 5k game with the Run for the Wild 5k at the Bronx Zoo! With 5,197 participants this race was pretty huge. It was amazing to see such a turn out to support The Wildlife Conservation Society! Personally I cannot imagine trying to organize an event for that … Continue reading Run for the Wild 5k
Over the weekend I ran the Santa Dash with my company sponsored team! Have I said before how proud I am of the charitable giving at Myriad? Well I am. Not only did they pick up the race registration for myself and my team (this is the third race they have sponsored a team for), … Continue reading Santa Dash! “Running” in slush
Yesterday was the Heroes and Villains 5K I've been anticipating since the Half finished. When I mentioned to my boss that I was running this race (which supports Memorial Soan Kettering Cancer Research Center) that my friend Reza Pazooki organizes, she suggested Myriad should have a team and that the company would donate to MSK as well! … Continue reading Heroes and Villains Dash!
This race was amazing! I physically felt better than I have in most races. This is the first one I have not cried at the finish. I did end up with a bit of a bug after the weekend. I guess running all that distance was rather taxing on my immune system. And actually, I … Continue reading ROCK N ROLL half-marathon 13.1
The Tunnel to Towers race is a bit longer than a 5K at 3.5 miles rather than 3.1. Today I finished in 37 minutes and 6 seconds. That's about 11-minute miles. With 25,000 participants (according to CBS) it was crowded and confusing at the start but no less inspiring. My parents and I were in … Continue reading 60 Day Countdown: 12 Days!
