After having traveled quite far for races this year, it felt good to close out 2013 with an event close to home on a surface that I started to like more and more this year: trail.
“Welcome to the world’s most beautiful trail race. At least in my opinion,” the voice of the confident female start…
Of course it’s not the same as running the full marathon, but a good excuse to go to Boston. That, and catching up with a good friend of mine.
Determination, lower body strength and a pinch of craziness was needed in order to show up for this trail race, up 3,859 ft Mt Diablo in the East Bay.
A running event in one of the most beautiful cities in the world. And only a two hour flight away. Sign me up already!
Between skyscrapers and amidst frigid temperatures, a half marathon event was held.
While California was haunted by a storm, I escaped the rain only to find myself on the Las Vegas Strip…
Thousands of runners answered the invitation by the City of Angels to celebrate Halloween running-style. And I was in the midst of it.
I trained more or less diligently for 4 months in order to run 26.2 miles in a city a 4 hour flight away together with 38,000 other like-minded lunatics. Yes, I just completed my first marathon.
