NYRR Queens 10k 2018

As races are run in New York during the year, they are often done with an eye towards the following year’s races. By running with New York Road Runners during the year, it is possible to gain entries for the New York City Marathon and New York City Half Marathon, and running the five borough series works towards entries for both.

NYRR Grete’s Great Gallop 10K 2017

This past summer, I decided I needed to throttle back from my long distance running. I ran NYC, Tokyo, and Boston back to back to back, so after the Brooklyn Half Marathon, I took a race hiatus. Now that summer has come to a close, it was time to return to those well worn running paths to continue my 9+1 with Grete’s Great Gallop 10K.

The 2017 runDisney Star Wars Dark Side Challenge

I decided last year to run the runDisney Kessel Run again after completing it in 2016. I ran the Light Side without a problem in January, but after signing up for Dark Side last summer, I joined Team For Kids to run the Boston Marathon – less than a week before running the Dark Side Challenge. […]

NYRR UAE Healthy Kidney 10k 2017

With a week to go before the Boston Marathon, the last “long” run for my taper was set to be six miles. The same weekend, New York Road Runners had their annual UAE Healthy Kidney 10k, which I decided would be the perfect way to get in that last six mile run – plus an extra .2 miles – in preparation for the marathon.

NYRR Queens 10K 2016

New York Road Runners has two big races every year – the NYC Half Marathon and the NYC Marathon – and the easiest way to enter each is to run a number of qualifying races the prior year to enter each. The NYRR Queens 10K, which has replaced the Queens Half Marathon in recent years, is one of the NYRR’s five borough series and a qualifier for both.

NYRR UAE Healthy Kidney 10k 2016

On the road to the 2017 NYC Marathon, I took to the roads of Central Park for the UAE Healthy Kidney 10k. After running three identical four mile races, I was looking forward to running a different course, even if it was longer and ran up Harlem Hill.

The Inaugural runDisney Star Wars Dark Side Challenge

When I ran the Star Wars Rebel Challenge in Disneyland in January, I knew I would have to run the Dark Side when it was announced as well. Not only was my love of Star Wars and running being combined a second time by runDisney, but now I would be doing the Kessel Run by completing both and receive a medal to commemorate it.

The Disneyland Star Wars Rebel Challenge 2016

Last year, I ran the inaugural Star Wars Rebel Challenge (10k and half marathon), which combined my love of running and my love of Star Wars. Since they were going to run it again (and later announce the Kessel Challenge), I had to run it again. The races were run on January 16 and 17 […]

UAE Healthy Kidney 10k

On a warm Saturday morning, 7,947 of us lined up in our corrals on the west side of Central Park for another New York Road Runners race. The sunny, 71 degrees already felt warm in the shade before the race, but it would only be to our detriment as the race progressed.

The Disneyland Star Wars Rebel Challenge

My first half marathon was at Walt Disney World in 2011. At the time I had never run such a distance before and led me to my desire to run marathons, but it led me to running five more Run Disney race weekends (including a Goofy and the inaugural Dumbo Double Dare). I decided to take 2014 off from Disney races in order to run the Berlin Marathon in Germany, but when I heard there was going to be a Star Wars themed race weekend, I had to make my return to Disneyland for the cross section of two of my passions.
