200 mile belt buckle earned at 3 Days at the Fair #3DATF
3 Days at the Fair – 144 hour race. Nothing I write can explain how amazing of an adventure this week had been but I’ll try. Half the week was excessively hot and humid, the other half was chilly and rainy, nothing in between. There was blood, sweat and tears. At times I was ready to pack up. But what kept me going were the amazing people that I shared all of this with. These are some of the finest people in the world, whether they’re working on their own PR or are setting a national record. I spent the week running miles with national and world record holders, sharing stories and laughs with some of the most inspiring athletes. This is such a unique event and even though it’s a week filled with pain management and sleep deprivation I already miss my #3DATF family. By the end of the race I had accumulated 208 miles which put me over 500 miles total at the Fair. #njtrailseries #altrarunning #endurance #ultrarunning #running #runningwarehouse
#DirtyGerman 25k trail race. 2:09:23. 17th overall. 4th in my age group. Muddy, hilly course on a humid day. 3 creek crossings were a fun addition! Overall a good day! Thanks @stephan.weiss.16 for a fun day!
Great run at the #marinecorpmarathon #1775k Thrilled with my pace and finishing position but nothing better than having this young marine hand me the finishers medal. Thank you! #runwiththemarines
#marinecorps #1775k complete. From what I heard this is a tough race with a hilly course. Usually I just shrug folks off when they say it’s hilly. But this time they were right! 850ft elevation gain over 11 miles, some steep. The hills definitely wore me down but for the most part I held a steady pace. Finished with a time of 1:28:15, in 127th place out of close to 3,000 runners. I feel good and am thrilled with my pace on a tough course. #marinecorpsmarathon
Looney Leprechaun 20k. Mud, snow, ice, hills on a sub freezing day. I took it easy but maintained pace and somehow got 3rd in my age group, around 11th overall. Small turnout but all the top runners were here. Tough races bring out tough runners. Time to wash up! #looneyleprechaun #trailrunning
#trailrunning in the #snow always makes for good pictures and it’s a great way to clean off your shoes! #altrarunning
It’s always neat being the first person to #run through the #snow
