Is this the new beginning?

After about a year of taking it easy, I think I am ready to get back into the mix of, what I like to call, “crazy running.” Continue reading

A teaser

On OxenTales 08 (The one where I go off the rails) I make my bid for being the next Wolverine. With Hugh Jackman stepping away from the character I rationalize that an ultrarunner/gym rat/former dancer would make a perfect substitute. … Continue reading

OxenTales Episode 07 – The one that was late. (or, The one that went all geeky.)

Week Seven = The one that was late. (or, The one that went all geeky.)

This week was all about being sick and being geeky. I’ve been battling a wicked cold whose clutches I cannot escape. Therefore, almost no training has been completed since the last installment but I was able to get to the gym for one day of lifting and it was glorious. However, all of my time has not been spent under the covers trying to get healthy. I did get out and have some GEEKY FUN. Free Comic Book Day and seeing Avengers: Age of Ultron kept my spirits high. I do provide a loosely developed review of Avengers and swoon over the new comic book store I found over the weekend.

For those of you who are new, I do record these installments during my commute to work. So I apologize for all the background noise and distractions you will hear. Turn signals. Honking horns. My inability to pronounce words correctly. I leave most warts and all untouched.

OxenTales Episode 6 – The one that did not exist

Week Six = The one that did not exist (or the one with the challenge.)

This week was meant to have my very good friend Chris on to discuss his race at the New Jersey Marathon and his life as a runner. Unfortunately I did not set up the audio correctly and nothing that Chris said was recorded properly. It wasn’t a complete loss because I did get to have a great 2 hour conversation with a dear friend. He and I have talked and we will figure things out and give it another shot in the near future. Maybe, this time, the guy who is an actual professional in the world of radio and voice work should do the recording.

Memories from my first utlra

Run Streak Day – 874 Total Miles in 2015 – 815 The calm. I constantly refer to how calm everything was compared to road races I have done.  There were no line for the port-a-johns.  No groups of people doing … Continue reading

OxenTales Episode 5 – The one with the big race.

Week Five = The one about the race.

It’s all over! Last weekend was the North Face Endurance Challenge 50 miler and I had an AMAZING time. I talk about the fun I had, how amazed I was at the community of runners and about poop. Yep, poop.
