Finishing up the half yesterday. Luckily, I hadn't run all out and had enough left in the tank to tag along with Shalane Flanagan when she said she wanted to run an extra 6 miles after. 19 miles instead of 13... Why not?
Fun facts: Robert lives in Macungie, Pennsylvania. Robert was born on a Tuesday. Robert is originally from Broomfield, Colorado. Robert is the executive digital producer for Runner's World magazine. Robert has visited 49 states and 7 countries, but none outside North America. Robert has run up the Empire State Building's 86 flights of stairs four times. Robert has read every novel published by Fyodor Dostoevsky. Robert graduated from the University of Colorado with a degree in English Literature. Robert likes watching NASCAR, but doesn't understand all the rules. Robert is the owner of Ink Plant although that doesn't mean much these days as the shop lies dormant.
This was part of yesterday's marathon route. Came back today to take it in at a slower pace.
Marathon 45 is done. Despite my plan to take it easy, I got a little carried away in the middle, paid for it at the end. #runwiththemarines #mcm2014 #rwchallenge
Fact: Beer tastes 26.2 times better after 26.2 miles. (And in a dry, non-sweaty shirt.)
From Saturday's trip to the mountains with @ericasara. #latergram #colorado
Fantastic run this morning. After a week of zeroes thanks to an injured knee, I got out for four miles in NYC. No knee pain!
Didn't have my phone on the run, so I had to drive back to take this.
Check out the July issue of @runningtimes. That's me on page 34.
Sunsets come too soon out here. #maui
My wife is a giant!
Possible D.C. Metro slogan: "It looks cooler than it actually is."
After graduating from college in 2005, I decided to start keeping a reading log. Since then, I've read 191 books. That's 67,913 pages in case you're curious. These days, I'm reading fewer books than I once was (thanks mainly to a subscription The Economist), but books are still regularly added to the Reading Log.
To date, I've run 45 marathons in 28 states, the most recent being West Virginia. Eventually, the goal is to get all 50, but that's going to take a while. Here's a map of the progress. My personal best is a 2:52:11, set in March 2013, but the goal is to improve that too. For more running stats, visit my running log.
At a luau with my lovely bride.
