Race Recap: Baltimore Marathon

A week later, and I’m now getting around to a recap of the Baltimore Marathon. It wasn’t as solid a run as I had thought I could do: the weather was warmer than normal, and I had an issue with numbness/tingling and pain in my left foot during the race (that I’ve since realized is…

Race Recap: Berlin Marathon

The Berlin Marathon, my second race in the World Marathon Majors, was an overall great experience. Given that my least favourite races tend to be the larger ones, I had tempered my expectations of what type of experience I would have. As a result, I came out of it enjoying more than I anticipated.

Race Recap: Anthem Richmond Marathon

It’s been a while since I’ve written here, and to be honest, once I started the travels for my last couple races, I just didn’t have the time or the right device to do the few blog posts I planned to do justice. So my apologies for the delay, but I hope you enjoy reading…
