5th Annual Labor of Love Run 4 Our Lady of The Wayside

Sunday, September 17, 2017
8:30am, 68°F, Rocky River High School

This was our second year running this race. It’s a nice change from the usual 5K — you don’t often see 4 mile races and the start is on a high school track. Not to mention, the cause is a great one and the energy is always very positive. Continue reading 5th Annual Labor of Love Run 4 Our Lady of The Wayside

Nike Summer Race Series 2017

Wednesday, August 16, 2017
76°F, 6:30pm, Edgewater Park

We did it again. Our social lives took over August and we could only manage to do a Wednesday evening race…which is actually awesome because it switches things up a bit and the timing of the Nike Summer Series offerings couldn’t be better! Continue reading Nike Summer Race Series 2017

11th Annual Wigs for Kids 5K Day at the Zoo

Saturday, July 22, 2017
74°F, 8:30am, Cleveland Metroparks Zoo

We’ve run at the zoo before, so we knew what to expect at the 11th Annual Wigs for Kids 5K Day at the Zoo. That didn’t make the anticipation of the big hill any better, especially with the struggle of the heat this summer. Luckily, it was a VERY rainy morning, with the rain only picking up as we ran and becoming torrential right after we finished. This helped keep the sweat at bay and the temperature refreshing instead of heavy and uncomfortable. Continue reading 11th Annual Wigs for Kids 5K Day at the Zoo

27th Annual A Most Excellent Race

Sunday, June 25, 2017
~68°F, 9am, Beaumont School

For the first race coming off of the half, both of us were feeling a bit… nervous about this race in the coming weeks. Not only was it a 10K, but the heat had been excruciating, and our training was perhaps a little lackluster. But thanks to the beautiful weather that morning, and a new, very pleasant course, the race turned out to be as fun as it always is! Continue reading 27th Annual A Most Excellent Race

40th Annual Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon

Sunday, May 21, 2017
~60°F, 7am, Downtown Cleveland

This race was going to be one for the books from the minute we registered. We knew that after the craziness of last year, no matter what happened the 40th Cleveland Marathon would be a different race. Continue reading 40th Annual Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon

6th Annual Love-A-Stray Fur Fun 5K

Sunday, April 30, 2017
~50°F, 9am, Avon High School

As usual, we were all excited to run the race that we’ve affectionately nicknamed “the Puppy Run”. Avon’s a bit of a trek for us, so we got an early start and arrived with time to spare (even after getting R registered because, you guessed it: he didn’t pre-register).  Continue reading 6th Annual Love-A-Stray Fur Fun 5K
