Jenster and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Race – Holston River 100 RR

It’s been a while and I’ve been up to no good. Running hasn’t been very enjoyable this year (other than a few marathons in March) and I haven’t felt like sharing my misery. But I’ll share this miserable run because it’s 100 frickin miles and you gotta share that ish. On paper, the race seemed so […]

Double Trouble Day 1: RnR Savannah

It started the way most of my running adventures start, bouncing texts back and forth with a friend until it snowballs into something epic… Rock’n’Roll sent an email (that somehow got past my spam filter) offering $29 off a race on Leap Day, so I texted my friend JJ asking if she wanted to meet […]

A Tale of Two 50ks (Afton and Rosaryville RR)
