Red Devil 50K – Lots of First for this Old Trail Runner

I wanted to write up a quick race report for my recent Red Devil 50K experience. The local Run Wenatchee club in the Cascade mountains of Washington threw a great race, and I recommend it if you want a true challenge. In fact, I find that I learn a number of lessons with every race, [...]

Dentist Outlasts Field at 2019 Barkley Marathons

Imagine your dentist running around in the woods all weekend, fighting through 60-degree temperature changes, from highs of 80, down to snow and sleet and 20 degrees.

Wapacking a Punch: The Wapack Trail Race in Torrential Downpour

What makes a person drive 6 hours one way to run a grueling trail race in the pouring rain, only to towel off and drive back right after crossing the finish line. Well, this was the Wapack.  After what has been a very strange running year for me from a health standpoint, I penciled in [...]

My 2016 MCM: Friends, Family, and a Lesson in Focus

We are all different as runners, and my "thing" is that I'm a bit OCD with constantly doing the math on what pace I need to average to reach certain goals. I think I do it as much to take my mind of the fact that I'm running than to actually strategize all that much. [...]

My Phirst 50K: Mudding at a Medium Pace

This isn’t about search but is my race report about  my most recent running endeavor. I signed up for my first 50K last fall. It is called the PHUNT race and is scheduled in mid-January so who knows what kind of weather you are going to get. Last year there as a steady sleet and [...]

I’m running the NYC Marathon

Though I will probably slip in an SEO news update somewhere next week, I will also be posting about my marathon experience this weekend, good or bad. I got in to running for the most part when I met my wife, who has always been a runner. Up until that point, I basically always considered [...]

2015 Delaware Trail Marathon: My first trail marathon

General Purpose This site is about SEO, but I will depart from SEO from time to time to share some things from my life.  I am a distance runner, and much like SEO, that involves a lot of slow build.  Lots of hard and honest work over time that pays off in the end.  This [...]
