40,000 Miles. On The Road Again.

I’ve been gone too long from my blog, 40,000 Miles On Foot, distracted and obsessed by life’s trivialities.  I started three years ago when I re-engineered my physical goals as a human being.  I wanted to run 40,000 miles before I found myself limited to a jog, a trot or worse yet, a walk.  Fortunately, … Continue reading

Run, Drive, Sleep, Repeat at Ragnar Relay.

Run, Drive, Sleep, Repeat.  Run, Drive, Sleep, Repeat.  It’s part of the lexicon at Ragnar Relay, the overnight running relay series that makes testing your limits a team sport.  That’s the official Ragnar boilerplate and for most of the thousands of participants of a R-A-G-N-A-R, it’s an appropriate sentiment. At the recent Ragnar SoCal, the … Continue reading

Semi-Marathon de Paris Offers An Inspirational Run Through The Best of Paris

The 21st Annual Semi-Marathon de Paris is history, having wrapped it up on a sunny, but chilly 0 Celsius day in downtown Paris.  Having successfully scalped my way into the race, thanks to my new best French friend, Boris, I joined the staggered start at the Chateau de Vincennes (not a bad backdrop to start … Continue reading

When In Paris …Do As The Parisians Do … Run the Semi-Marathon de Paris

I appreciate that when one travels to Paris, running should not get in the way of stops to the Musee Rodin, the Pantheon, the Louvre Palace, the Notre Dame de Paris and of course, the cafes, the markets, the castles … too much to see in such a short time.  But as Americans, when we … 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

Boomeragnar’s Continue to Dominate Master’s Class

The inaugural Running Nerds 5K had a respectable showing in the Midtown West Atlanta neighborhood on the campus of the Howard School.  With a field of a few hundred, led by one of the Atlanta Track Club’s speedsters and the East Coast representation of the Boomeragnar team — Rob Scheinman, Lisa Cohen, Phil Finley and … 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
