In the past teams have come away with some solid prizes such as embroidered sweatshirts, duffelbags with the race logo on it and some nice stuff. 3rd place overall netted us these beauties... awesome...(insert sarcasm here) but it was still a wonderful race and they did a great job organizing it too. We all go hammered afterwards and as the saying goes, "you work hard, then play hard" and we definitely all did. This was the last big race for me before Chicago Marathon which is less than 3 weeks away now and I'm itching to drop a solid race there. Should be a fun time. But until then friends, race hard, train harder and see you out on the roads and trails. Cheers.

I’ve been trying to prevent the on-slaught of pain by icing and stretching a ton, but it’s not really getting any better, just kind of maintaining. I’m having a feeling it’s from giving up the biking and the swimming and converting those into running miles. My weekly running mileage went up from about 30 a few weeks ago to over 50 this past week and I’m having a feeling the increased and focused running has something to do with it. I'm dealing with it, and I'm hoping it goes away once the marathon is in the past. I've got to get things all locked up for IMLP next July and be 100% once I get to that starting line.
I suppose I will write up an analysis of my race plan as the date draws nearer (including paces and goals, etc), but I'm getting ready to dance this upcoming weekend in Hell, Michigan for my second foray into the crazy relay trail world (I did this 100k relay in 2007 too). It will be a fun time with fun people and I'm sure we will all enjoy a few brews after a long and hard days work :o) If you're going to hell this weekend, see you there, otherwise, get out on the roads and trails and I'll see you as I'm prepping for Chicago. Cheers.
SUNY Geneseo and to honor that, this time around I wore an old SUNY G singlet and decided to forgo the usual costume.There will be no other photos from the event (to protect the innocent...and last names were not used either) other than this official results sheet which was written with a sharpie on the back of my PBR box (I only use the best...) It was a tight race and both Brent and I had been training for weeks/years for this event. I know I started my illustrious beer miling career back in the hazy foggy memories of
