Tokyo Marathon 2019 – Race Report

This past week, I travelled halfway across the world – to run a marathon. The Tokyo Marathon specifically. I prefaced the 2 weeks before the marathon with traveling all over Japan to get over the jetlag (the one time that my stomach messed up my race was at the London Marathon and I blame that on jetlag).

Teardrop Half Marathon – Race Report

With my target marathon being Revel Mt. Hood, a downhill race in Oregon, I looked to do the Teardrop half marathon. The race started on top of Fort Mountain at an elevation near 3000 feet, through the Cohutta Wilderness Area and finished in Chatsworth, Georgia, for an over 2000-foot drop for the Half Marathon. What I LOVE about the Atlanta running community (and triathlon community when I was doing triathlons) is how I go to a race all alone and yet meet…
