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

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... ]

EX2 Adventures: Fall Backyard Burn - Riverbend 2017

EX2 Adventures: Fall Backyard Burn - Riverbend 2017

Not really a race report, more of just letting people know I am still functioning after Ironman Louisville (IMLOU) and that I’m out having fun! Trying to get outside to enjoy the lovely Virginia trails during the fall season, now that the fall foliage is in full effect and I don’t have to worry about getting injured and jeopardizing my “A race”.
