2014 Des Plaines River Trail Races 50 Mile
I blame it all on St John the Gambler and Zapmamak. They deftly combine "talented" with "highly trained professional" to compose compelling race reports that inspire me to do mildly abnormal things. If you're looking for a quality story, I urge you to seek out their blogs. Here, I will try to create a poor imitation for your scorning pleasure.
Over the last two and a quarter years, I have gone from "my shoes wore out, so now I just run around (metaphorically) barefoot" to (two months later) "I can't sleep from jetlag, so I'm going to run around (literally) barefoot in the middle of the night until I get tired" to (a few months later) "how about the marathon that runs in front of my...
RW Festival 10K
I ran a part of the bid deal race event of the neighborhood yesterday morning. The Festival is a 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon run in Bethlehem, PA. It's set up to let people so inclined to run all three races as a "hat trick."

Well the big day finally happened. I consider this as what I've worked all year towards. My training this year hasn't been that great, mostly due to my shiftwork schedule. There were many 4 day stretches where I didn't run at all, and many weeks even through the summer where I was only getting 20 miles in - in fact that was probably my average week. After last year breaking every PR I had in 5k, 10, 1/2, and then my first marathon, this year has been rather dismal only racing 1 race and coming in several minutes behind last year. However by the end of the season I did get some long runs in, some back to backs, and some record mileage weeks for me. I felt good aside from a slight pain from my very last long run. So I decided to go for the marathon, with no serious goal but...
