Quote of the Week – 3/2

I like the medal. It’s bumpy. Like the road Barefoot Eddie

2014 recap

I’ll keep the words to a minimum. It was a jam packed 2014 – Here’s what 10 Marathons, 9 Ultras, 1 half marathon and a couple pacing gigs look like in pictures. January – Bandera 100k (AKA best weekend ever) February – Finally broke 4:30 at the Myrtle Beach Marathon March – Paced the Columbia […]

RR: Marshall Marathon

For the last 4 years I’ve maintained a healthy trend of having a Spring and a Fall PR. Even if the PR is 20 seconds like in Spring 2013…a PR is a PR. I figured this fall would be the exception because I hadn’t really done much in terms of training. In fact, I’d been […]

Double Day 2 – Atlantic City Marathon RR

After a horrific crash and burn at Monster Mash, I just wanted a nap! The last thing I wanted to do was get into a car and drive another 2 hours to suffer through another freaking marathon, but everything was paid for so I had to keep on truckin. Luckily we hit no traffic and we […]

Double Day 1 – Monster Mash Marathon RR

*For those not familiar with Marathon Maniac lingo, a Double Marathon is two marathons in two days Long time readers will remember that I did a double back in November 2012. Both races didn’t go so well, with Savannah heat kickin my butt and the Raleigh hills kicking them the next day.  Excuses aside I […]

(Like a) Blister in the Sun Marathon RR

A Stupid Hot Hilly Little Run in the Park The RD says, “I guarantee suck ass conditions and a fun time.” What more do you want? It was hot. It was hilly. It was awesome. LET ME GO ON…. August 3, 2014 I’m a huge fan of a race that requires entrants to write a […]

Hatfield McCoy – Flat Stanley’s first marathon

For those living under a rock, deployed Loopster THE Col Cupcake as a sign floating around all over the country to different races. The last time I had the sign it spent the whole time in my car and I was determined to do a better job this time around. The drive to no where, […]

RR: Shamrock Marathon

INHALE!!!! If you’ve been holding your breath waiting for this report, I hope I just saved your life. You’re welcome. I’m not a player, I just crush a lot  As Loopfests go, Friday night before Shamrock was typical. I feel a bit Forrest Gumpish when I say “I met up with a bunch of Loopsters…again…and […]

Adventures in Pacing – Columbia Marathon RR

Being a pacer sounds pretty perfect for a race-a-holic like me. I’ve always wanted to pace a marathon, but it always seemed like something only Ms Ritz or someone who knew everyone who’s anyone in the running world would get to do. Well, just call me Mrs Jefferson because I’m movin on up!!  Can every […]

Marathon and Ultra states

I don’t really have a 50 Sate goal, but I think it’s fun to get new states as the opportunities come. My first marathon was in Canada, so obviously I didn’t plan ahead! Below is a list of all my marathons and ultras organized by state…with links to the Race Report if I haven’t been […]

Post Raccoon DNF

Elite members of the Jenster Fan Club have died holding their breath waiting for my Rocky Raccoon Report.  RIP elite members! Those who are only mostly dead or not dead yet (and feeling better) probably saw so many reports and videos on the Raccoon thing that you either think I reported and you missed it or you […]

RR: Rehoboth Beach Marathon

LONG overdue. This race was 12/8/2012. It seems like most people have taken a loop hiatus. Some blame it on Pluck, some on work, injury, blah, blah, blah. I’ve been horrible myself but since everyone else is doing it you can’t hate me without hating on all those loveable loopsters. Remember that before you hate. […]
