72. Downtown 10K, 2012

Cara's cold takes its toll

Haven’t done this one since their first race in 2009. I was hoping that it had grown a bit since then, but it appears to be about the same size. One thing was different, though… this time the registration process seemed to be a little off. And by that, I mean “extremely murky.”

69. GMAA Equinox Trail Race, 2012

Cara Smiles

This was race number 69. heh heh… Anyway, it was in Charlotte, VT. (Pronounced Shar-LOT in Veromont.) It was a trail run out in the boonies, but it was a really nice day. There were only two problems. First, the previous day’s rain created some muddy spots. Second, Cara hadn’t trained up. Her job is pretty […]

59. Flowertown Festival Run, 2011

59. Flowertown Festival Run, 2011

This was the last race I did before moving to New England in 2009. In fact, I left that day. So now that I’m back in the area, it was especially important not to miss it. Many of my Charleston peeps are regulars at the Flowertown race, so I was looking forward to a few reunions.

47. Downtown 10K, 2009

47. Downtown 10K, 2009

There won’t be many footraces after this point since Winter is on the way, so I was excited to find out about an event right here in downtown Burlington. The downtown 10K is less than a mile from my apartment, so how could I pass it up?

32. James Island Connector Run, 2008

32. James Island Connector Run, 2008

The James Island Connector, as I’ve said before, is a pretty simple race. You just run up Calhoun Street for a couple of blocks and then you’re on the bridge. There are three different hills on the Connector, ranging in horror from mild annoyance to some of us, to heartache for those who are a bit less experienced.

22. Cooper River Bridge Run, 2008

22. Cooper River Bridge Run, 2008

Another year, another Cooper River Bridge Run. This year was different because I wasn’t running alone. My friend Ron drove down to Charleston for his very first 10K race, so I went a little slower so I could stick with him. After all, it would be kind of rude to invite him to Charleston and then leave him behind in a crowd of thousands.

13. Dam Run to Irmo, 2007

Well, it finally happened. I’ve participated in a race that I would not suggest to anyone else. The aptly named “Dam Run” was a disorganized joke. Oh, I’m sure that some of the locals would disagree, but trust me… it was a poorly organized race with an extremely crummy course.

8. Flowertown Festival Run, 2007

This article is a bit photo-heavy, but it’s light on the chatter. I thought it would be fun to actually take my camera with me during a race. I have a project coming up in my Digital Photography class which requires a visual narrative, so I submitted the idea of documenting a race or two. (It’s not as if I’m really going out of my way.)
