10 Peachtree Road Race Tips For Every Runner

We're a little over a month away from the 45th running of the Peachtree Road Race. Ahhhhh I can barely stand it! July 4th has always been my favorite holiday, and the Peachtree has only added to the excitement of the day for me. I ran my first Peachtree Road Race back in 2004 with my dad. I remember having such anxiety about the experience the night before that I barely got any sleep and ended Read the entire post [...]

I’ll Be Glad When The Boston Marathon is About Running Again

I'm worried about one thing when it comes to this year's running of the Boston Marathon. It's not safety. I know that Boston will have that place on lock down. It's not the bystandards. Anyone stupid enough to attempt anything this year deserves what's coming to them. And it's definitely not the weather. It's glorification. Sensationalism. Headlines and bylines that drive clicks that drive Read the entire post [...]

But I'm not 100% sure that the bombings should be about running. Or the runners. As we know, no Boston Marathon runners were killed in the bombings. I'm not sure if any were injured critically or experienced life-threatening or -changing Read the entire post [...]
