"I'd rather be seen on my bicycle than on a park run" - Quote from the dark side

Hey, I’m famous!

One of my race reports made it into one of our local running magazines, Modern Athlete, this month. There is a short online version but seeing it in the printed version is much cooler!



I’ll be MIA for a few days as I travel to this beautiful place to run to the top of that mountain.


I’ll be back next week with a report and pictures of the race. Have a fantastic weekend everyone and good luck to everyone running races. Special thoughts to those running their first marathons this weekend!
