Best Damn Race Safety Harbor 10K Race Report 2018

I'm not sure if you all know this, but I hate the 10K distance. I never run it, and when I do, I'm reminded of how completely stupid it is. Don't argue with me. It's dumb. It's basically a 5K that's extended. You get to redline and hang on for 3+ more miles. It. Is....

Chicago Marathon 2018 Race Recap

Howdy! I just flew in from Chicago and boy are my arms tired! Just kidding. Chicago was almost two weeks ago and I've been back for a while. I just haven't had the time or desire to put this down on (e)paper. I *think* the ego bruising has healed and I feel mostly...
