A good recovery is a vital component of your training plan

For many of us, we've been training hard these past 4-6 months for that one big race we're hoping to capture a new PR. During that time your muscles have taken a beating and if you don't spend a little time refreshing your body, you'll eventually break down. Scotty McKeel, PT, DPT, the local athlete training expert says [...]

Runner Perspective: From Boston to Big Sur

I had one word in mind as I traveled to Big Sur this year to complete the Boston 2 Big Sur Challenge: REDEMPTION. Okay, to give you a little context, let's talk about where I was in my training before Boston. My training for the 2017 Boston Marathon went better than I expected and I trained [...]

Runner Perspective: Getting a BQ at the 2017 Bayshore Marathon

If you asked me five years ago if I'd be qualifying for the Boston Marathon, I probably would have laughed. Although I had run a 3:35 marathon when I was 28 (my previous PR), I was now in my 40s and getting faster wasn't something that I thought was possible. Well, I just got done [...]

GHRC Logos & 2017 T-shirts

As the Club continues to grow, there was talk that we should explore a logo we could call our own. Up to this point, the designs that have been picked for the Club shirts are shared by other clubs across the United States. We worked with a local graphic designer who came up with three [...]

A spectator’s perspective of the 2017 Boston Marathon

Running (and finishing) a big race like the Boston Marathon is definitely an accomplishment. The other big part of running this race is the overwhelming support you get from spectators the entire 26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Boston. While I have ran the Boston Marathon once, I have been a spectator a few times and it [...]

#BeBoston: Strength, Resilience, Community

No matter how many times you cover the distance, toeing the starting line of a 26.2 mile journey is always epic. Toeing the line of the Boston Marathon, the world’s oldest annual marathon, well that's just off the charts. The 2017 Boston Marathon was my third Boston; I ran it in 2013 and then again in [...]

Let’s go run the 2018 Athens Marathon!

If you have not picked up on it, there has been chatter lately of a planned trip to Greece in 2018 to take part in one of the largest sport, cultural and tourism events in the world – the Athens Marathon. Bruce Ter Beek did some research and he's come back with a Running & [...]

To relay, or not to relay…it should never be a question

Up until last September, when it came to running, I was a purist at heart. No Tough Mudders, no Color Runs, no PJs or dressing up. I was a straight-up road runner. You would never see me running with a wig or bodysuit (that’s actually a frightening thing to think about). Colorful spandex is about [...]

The Importance of Training Mentors

When it comes to training mentors, I have found that being an active member of the GHRC has changed the way I keep in shape. Read why I think having training mentors that compete at an entirely different level and those within my own peer group is really important.

Training until it hurts

This past year, I realized something in my running form. Prior to 2016, I wasn't really running. As my physical therapist and marathon-winning wife would put it, I was moving while shuffling my feet. *my wife really loves me.* Unfortunately, as hard as she was on me, it was the truth.
