Race Review: 2014 First Watch Sarasota Half Marathon (3/16/2014), or: “Yub Nub…”

Sarasota, how I adore you… Let’s put this in some measure of perspective. The 2013/14 season has been my third race season since I started running, and it has easily been my most crazy-bugfork and wildly inconsistent season ever.

Last race of the season… :-\

Well it’s that time ­čÖü Tomorrow morning Boots & I are off to the Gulf Coast of Florida to round out our 2013-2014 Race Season. We start off in Ft. Myers at 9AM for the Pancreatic Cancer Research Walk as part of Team Awesome. It’s a 5K romp around Lakes Regional Park benefiting The Lustgarten…

Odds ‘n’ Sods, Bits ‘n’ Pieces, Various ‘n’ Sundry, and so on, or: “And still it begins, needles ‘n’ pins…”

Howdy fellow Space Travelers. I really don’t have a whole lot of content for today, but I thought I’d put up some brief updates about what’s going on with things in Downtown Hokeyville, Population: Us. So without further ado: 1.
