How are you surviving COVID-19? It’s a crazy time, no? For normalcy’s sake, I figured I’d do a currently post. I haven’t done one since last October! Who’s ready to see what I’m cooking, baking, and how training is going?
I can’t keep it a secret anymore, I’m registered for the 2020 Ironman Ohio 70.3! More on why, what a half Ironman consists of, and the training plan I’m following in this blog post.
Last weekend Nolan and I ran the 2020 Cyclone’s 10K in downtown Cincinnati. It was our first race of 2020 and Nolan’s first 10K race.
Over the weekend Nolan and I ran the 2019 Jingle Bell 5K in Covington, KY. It was Nolan’s target race from his couch-to-5K training. After running the Thanksgiving 5K in 33:33, his goal was to run it faster than 33:33.

The 2019 Marshall University Marathon was my 4th marathon and and my 2nd fastest time, but I still made mistakes. Thankfully my very supportive crew from Tri-State was there to get me to the finish line.
The past weekend was the 2019 Queen Bee Half Marathon in Cincinnati. I had been really bummed about not getting into Chicago, but was grateful to be able to run this fun race again. The week leading up to the race I was traveling for work. I missed a few of my runs and didn’t…
The 2019 Michigan Ragnar started in Muskegon and finished in Traverse City on beautiful Lake Michigan. I knew it was going to include some running and lots of laughter, but nothing could have prepared me for the actual experience with this group of goof balls.
This past weekend was the 2019 Hudy 14K race downtown Cincinnati. Compared to last year’s race, this run was hot and humid! So it’s no surprise my pace was slower, but I was still happy with a 1:32 finish with a pace of 10:37. Plus, what better excuse to wear my beer socks and pose…
