Early Winter Running

There’s times when it is just cold and wet. And then there are times when it is just cold and wet, in the Northeast. It seems to be a special cold and wet – much more cold (and wet) than in other places. Yesterday we were planning on a 10 mile trail run on nearly […]

Our First Triathlon – Tri For The Y Ithaca

This is one for posterity…better late than never! Our first triathlon was a modified Sprint distance that was sponsored by the local YMCA. This was a great first tri – less than 100 entrants, indoor swim, and a local course. It was a lot of fun and we had several friends also complete this triathlon. […]

Thom B. Trail Run 2014

A couple weeks back I went out towards Greek Peak to the Hammond Hill Forest area for the Thom B. 2014 trail run. Jeney and I had previously run this course 2 years back – but this time I wanted to try doing 2 loops for a combined 26 kilometers (~15.75 miles). The people that […]

Paleo Fish Tacos

I have never been big on making my own tortillas. However, I love tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and have been trying to stick to a mostly Paleo diet while cranking up the training for upcoming races. I was looking around for something different and found a recipe for plantain tortillas. My first thought was, “hmmm…I wonder […]

Down South For 2014 Ragnar Trail Atlanta

Earlier this year we decided that trying a trail Ragnar was near the top of our list for events we wanted to do this year. Luckily, our friend Kaleigh felt the same – although I think a large part of it was her obsession with completing races in all 50 states, and Georgia had not […]

Syracuse Half Marathon 2014

This past weekend, on March 23rd, we headed up north a few miles from Ithaca for the Syracuse Half Marathon. Several months ago we though, “hey – this would be a great spring time season opener run!”. We couldn’t have been more wrong… We woke up at 6am to blowing snow and icy roads – […]

35 – A Motivating Banff Short Film

A few weeks ago, on our anniversary evening, Jeney and I went to the large Cornell auditorium for a showing of the 2014 BANFF film festival. One short film in particular really hit home with me. If you have 5 minutes, watch this film – 35.   35 from ARC’TERYX on Vimeo. Fun side note […]

Great Breakfast In Ithaca – Coal Yard Cafe

Last weekend, while Jeney was still recovering from pneumonia(!), the rest of our regular running group ventured out into the 10-ish degree weather in Ithaca and ended up having a good run. I ended up copying a friends route that added a few miles and was happy to finish up with just over 12 miles. […]
