CMS: XTERRA Charlottesville 2018 Race Report

This is a race report for the XTERRA Charlottesville Sprint. I chose the sprint distance as I was also traveling for work to Costa Rica and wasn’t sure how well the hotel gym accommodations would be, thus had concerns on bring able to race at a peak performance. Since I had time and traveling working against me, I signed up for the sprint to have FUN. [ Read More... ]

XTERRA Myrtle Beach 2018 Race Report
XTERRA Myrtle Beach 2018 Race Report

After having a great time completing the Pocahontas Run and Ride, my Speed Sherpa teammate asked me if I also wanted to register for XTERRA Myrtle Beach. This was definitely not in my 2018 race plan, and the event was only in three weeks. But I was feeling great after Pocahontas, so I did some quick Google searching about the XTERRA Myrtle Beach to see how long the three segments were listed and to figure out how long of a drive it would take to get there. Luckily1, I had already requested an extended weekend from work so I had plenty of time to get myself ready and drive down to South Carolina on Thursday. Or unlucky depending on your point of view. I had something else already planned but that event fell apart only a week prior, so I had nothing scheduled for the weekend. ↩ [ Read More... ]

Adventure Enablers: Pocahontas Run and Ride 2018

It’s another race weekend and once again I find myself participating in a well organized Adventure Enabler event! The weather was MUCH better when compared to 2018 Early Mountain Vineyards cold needle infested ice rain that we had a couple weeks ago. The morning had a slight chill with temperatures just under 40°F, but by 9:00 am you could feel the sun warming the air and you just knew it was going to be a good spring day. [ Read More... ]

Adventure Enablers: Early Mountain Vineyards Run and Ride 2018

First two races of the year are already in the bag with Adventure Enablers Run/Ride events at Early Mountain Vineyards. I did not perform very well last year, so I had a lot of personally imposed pressure to not only hit my goals for the MTB, while “trying” to be mindful that I am just over two weeks into my recovery from surgery.

Adventure Enablers: Resolution Trail Run 2018
Adventure Enablers: Resolution Trail Run 2018

Short Race report, as I was able to participate in Adventure Enablers’ Resolution Run for the second year in a row. The original goal was to run with the family like last year1, so I wasn’t thinking about actually “racing”… but more as a motivator for the younger two as they were going to attempt the 5k vs. the 1mile fun run. The 11° temperature was a little too cold for these East-Coast kids. ↩ [ Read More... ]
