Beware. Ultra Mixed Team Has Its Advantages.

It was the book, Born to Run, when I fully appreciated the female runner and her raw drive to not only out distance the women in the field, but to crush the male species … amped up with all its testosterone, ego and physical arrogance.  Personally, I was inspired, you may say, by others around … Continue reading

A Storied Climb … Up 50 Stories

I have vivid memories of those days of running Beaver Stadium as part of our preseason conditioning for the Penn State Wrestling Team.  Some thought of it as a privilege to enter the home of Paterno and all those legendary football players — Franco Harris, Jack Ham, John Capelletti, Curt Warner.  At the time, it … Continue reading

Finley Takes the Masters 10K for Boomeragnars

Phil Finley showed up this past Saturday ready to take the Boomeragnar team to the next level, leaving behind the gutsy sprints of 5K races to enter the more challenging, nothing less than the extended anguish of a 10K race.  While caught here racing with teammate Dean Trevelino, Finley showed up as the lone wolf … Continue reading

New York Marathon Entry Closes … Havana Marathon Opens

It’s less than a week before the famed New York Marathon closes its port to entries into the world’s largest marathon.  I for one have never run the New York Marathon, but I’ve heard nothing only great things which comes as no surprise.  Afterall, it’s New York and who doesn’t “Love New York.”  “I Love … Continue reading

Finley Leads Boomeragnar Team in a Race for Andee

On a wet and gloomy morning, more than 600 people (anticipated 200) could not be deterred in their support of a young woman named Andee Poulos, an eighth grader at Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School who is fighting an extremely rare condition called Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM). A little more than a year into her battle, Andee and … Continue reading

Miles for Smiles 5K Course Something to Cry Over

While the morning air was perfect for a 5K race, breezing comfortably at about 65 degrees, the course that lined the streets of one of Atlanta’s most picturesque neighborhoods was eager to consume the field of 300+ runners in its series of unforgiving hills. Personally, I don’t recall running a course that was almost completely … Continue reading

Boomeragnar Runners Finish Strong at Diabetes Dash in Atlanta

It was a perfect morning for a race, despite the unusually late 9:00 a.m. start.  While the field was not overly strong, my Boomeragnar team member, Phil Finley, and I recognized a few bambinos in the field with muscular physiques that made our baby boomer statures looks somewhat … dated.  While both Phil and I … Continue reading

Welcome to Boomeragnar, our online presence focused on the running of the Ragnar Relay in Napa Valley.  Our mixed team of six runners, three men and three women, is comprised of the last of the boomers born in 1964 who see this 200-mile relay as a run for their life … a metaphorical event that … Continue reading
