Tapering in the Lake District

Rob and I flew in to Manchester, England, for the West Highland Way race so we spent the week before in England’s Lake District enjoying the trails.  The area’s worth visiting for the scenery alone but it impossible for me to be content just sitting and gazing.  I have to get out and go.  And […]

Jon and Steve’s Bob Graham Round

So what, you may […]

Chattooga 50k – Unexpected Odds

I give up.  The odds of starting this race late all three times was pretty low, but we managed it.  It’s now in the realm of a tradition. This year, we at least found out we’re not missing a turn like we thought before – we checked them ALL on the way to the start.  […]

Andy Colee’s Number

The weekend after a satisfying Massanutten 100, Rob and I ran the Scenic City Marathon in Chattanooga.  I’ll say upfront that it’s not my favorite race – there’s usually a dispiriting lack of post-race anything, much less vegetarian food, but my friends wanted to go and any time I can spend with them is good […]

Massanutten 100 – Ghosts

May 15, 2010.  Outside Luray, Virginia I had looked forward to this all spring.  It’s a great course (lots of rocks and climb), a fun gathering of friends, and would be my tenth start and hopefully ninth finish.  In short, the highlight of my spring. With all that anticipating, you’d think I’d be in perfect […]
