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

A Bolt to Jamaica Doesn’t Amount to Run in with Usain Bolt

While July brings the heat in Jamaica, I couldn’t think of a better place than Round Hill to incorporate some hill training into my regime just weeks before Epic Relay.  Round Hill, made popular by Ian Fleming who penned many of his James Bond classics, balances its national pride today between Bob Marley, the Jamaican … Continue reading

Torrance Tornado … In Person

I’m not one to be star struck … And I have crossed paths with some iconic brand personalities.  Take the Greatest himself, Muhammad Ali.  I was there … Just a pebbles throw away when he carried the Torch during the 1996 Olympic Games and the Closing Ceremonies. It was inspiring and emotional, in part because … 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

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

My Road to 40,000 Miles

I’m sure you’re asking yourself, how does one get to 40,000 miles … on foot? I’ll show you my math if you show me yours. My calculations begin at the ripe old walking age of 11 months, three months after my brother’s highly competitive 8 month mark.  So from 0-11, years that is, I gave … Continue reading

Ragnar Relay … Running for Our Life.

The other day I read about a woman who turned 116.  She’s the oldest living American, still percolating somewhere in a small town in Georgia.  That’s one full life.  So when I got a wild hair to run a 200-mile relay with a small group of friends, it was driven in part by my need … Continue reading

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

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 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
