The Final Straw

So much to discuss, so little time… First things first – 4:29.12 on Saturday up at Cornell, second place.  Went in thinking maybe I could run in the 4:25-4:26 range, circumstances (and a recurring uncooperative hamstring) left me just grinding … Continue reading

Vol 1 – The 400m

When I wrote “One For The Road” 21 days ago, I didn’t intend to make it look like I was going away forever.  It kind of turned into that though.  I’ve been gone so long it took me 3 tries … Continue reading

Getting Plastered at Nationals

…And The Officials Didn’t Even Wear Tuxedoes!
