Personal and team race report: 2015 Al's Run - battling adversity
by on Monday, September 21, 2015

Al's Run is, of course, always the big Team HillRunner.com event of the year. This is the 13th year we've entered a team under the HillRunner.com banner. As always, I'm very touched and honored by the great group of runners who agree to run under the HillRunner.com banner.

This year was a struggle from the start, though. Due to injuries and other issues, a handful of recent Team HillRunner.com members were unable to make the race this year. While this hurt the team's depth, I still felt we we ...

Race report: 2015 Hootie Hustle 5K
by on Monday, August 31, 2015

My second of two race reports from August races.

the Hootie Hustle is a second annual event supporting the scholarship fund at the school district I live in so I feel an obligation to show up. Besides, last year I discovered that it's a pretty nice course overall and it had better competition than I was expecting. Plus, this year, I'm unable to make it to the Jamie Block Alumni Meet at UW-Stout so it's the perfectly timed replacement for that as a final Al's Run tune-up.

As I mentioned, th ...

Race report: 2015 Hank Aaron State Trail 5K
by on Monday, August 31, 2015

I'm a little behind on race reports. It's been a hectic summer. So I'm going to be posting two race reports in fairly short order.

First up, the Hank Aaron State Trail 5K. As seems to be the case every year recently, I find myself at some point questioning whether I should run this race. This time, as mentioned, I had a very busy summer. The weekend before this race, I was in Illinois going through an RRCA coaching certification course (which I'll write about when I get a chance). 2 days, 8-9 ...

Hootie Hustle 5K Race Report
by on Sunday, August 30, 2015

August started out very poorly for training and I was just recovering from a light ankle sprain ten days before race day so I had mixed feelings about my possible race performance. I had a great workout on Tuesday so I did have some confidence.

The weather seemed less than ideal with a mix between a light rain and a heavy mist. The winds were less than ten MPH so that was good.

I did try something new this time and that was eat something about three hours before the race. I, as always ...

Race report: 2015 Walleye Run 5 miler
by on Sunday, June 14, 2015

I haven't given many updates on how my running has been going here for a while. Before I get to the race, I'll offer a quick overview.

The winter went well. I thought my volume was a little off but my intensity was better. When I checked this year compared to last, my volume was nearly identical. If my intensity was better, then I was having a very solid winter.

In retrospect, my intensity was good but possibly not as w ...

Crazylegs
by on Sunday, April 26, 2015

This is the largest road race in Wisconsin, with 10,000 runners. There are some similarities and differences to Al's Run. They're both 8k races, with large fields and plenty of competition. The main difference is Crazylegs has a wave start, based on predicted time. Waves of 200 runners go off every 30-45 seconds. My estimated finish time of 38 minutes put me and my son in wave G. On the one hand running around a bunch of slower runners in waves that went off earlier was a bit frustrating, and it ...

Race report: 2015 Icebreaker Indoor Marathon relay
by on Monday, January 26, 2015

First, I should point out that I'm the last team member to write about the race. Nikki, Josh and Jerry have already written on their perspectives. To be honest, the weekend got hectic for me and I haven't read through all of ...
