Well I mean, you knew it was coming, right? For those new to the entire Hokified-lifestyle experience simulacrum, a bit of catch-up: every time we participate in a Run Disney race event, we design a custom race shirt for the event. Well, not every time; we didn’t create shirts for the 2012 Twilight Zone Tower Of…

Some Disneyland Half Marathon weekend stats and info, or: “I longed to speak but did not dare…”

Happy Friday, Hokeyfolk. Let’s get the grumpy stuff out-of-the-way: as much as I tried, as much as I prayed, as much as I was absolutely convinced that it was gonna be a done deal, I didn’t make it into the Big Sur Marathon lottery. Phooey! and Fiddlesticks!! And… you know, it’s not that big a deal.…

The 2015 Walt Disney World Marathon was Day 2 of the Goofy Race and a Half Challenge and Day 4 of the Dopey Challenge and Day 1 of the Holy Crap I’m Running A Freakin’ MARATHON Challenge for those who eschew the fancy crap and would prefer to just put their head down and run…

This race review was originally published here at the amazing Sparkly Runner blog. If you enjoy Hokeyblog, go give my amazing friend Sarah’s blog a lookover. She’s incredibly forthright and entertaining, and really cool people too. She’s the real deal, Hokeyfolk! There was this magical moment of clarity that occurred as I turned eastbound onto…

Race Review: 2014 Avengers Super Heroes Half Marathon (11/16/2014), or: “But now I’m safe in the eye of the tornado…”

You can’t PR at a Run Disney race! That’s what they keep drilling into your head, right? As you dish out your hard-earned shekels to pay the premium registration fees, make travel arrangements, buy all kinds of overpriced merchandise and extra race add-ons like “Chear Squads” and “Race Retreats” and RIDICULOUSLY overpriced photographs, deep down…
