Triple Crown for Big Brown?

Today I watched Big Brown, owned by my cousin Paul Pompa, Jr., fall short of the popular expectation that he would be the first Triple-Crown winner in 30 years. After winning the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness by completely dominating the field, all eyes were on him today, but he just didn’t have it. His …

A New Pugger Runner website?

Thanks to my good friend Robert Coombs, Pugger Runner may soon turn into a full-on website of it’s own at www.puggerrunner.com (don’t look yet…it’s under construction!). Robert has generously contributed his time and knowledge of basic website development and is helping to explore some options for a better site. Although I initially started Pugger Runner in response …

The Lost Marathon Photos – doh!

I rarely purchase any of the “professional” race photos after a race from services like MarathonFoto or Brightroom. They’re ridiculously marked-up, and typically just an average quality. However, when my wife suggested that I purchase some that she could put into a scrapbook, I went ahead and ordered a few from each of my last …

A New Marathon Partner!

I just heard from my brother Ryan that he wants to train and run the OBX Marathon (Nov. 9) with me, his first! I’ll be putting together a training plan for him that’ll be nice and gradual, since we’ve got plenty of time. We’ll see if Ryan and I can do some “virtual training” together: doing our long runs …

New York City Marathon Lottery

Results of the lottery for entrance into the NYC Marathon were just posted, and I didn’t get in. I guess I didn’t really expect to, but it’s still a bummer to see the big “NO” on the entrant database next to my name. Their policies state that if I’m denied entry 3 years in a …

Summer Recovery & Rest!

Although my recovery time has shortened significantly after each successive marathon, I’ve reached a time where I can get some quality rest and recovery before knocking off another state or two this fall. In my last stretch of 3 marathons in 5 weeks, I noticed that I didn’t need as much time to recover and …

Wyoming Marathon, Laramie, WY

8 down, 42 to go! After I got home from the Fargo Marathon on Tuesday, I decided to tackle the Wyoming Marathon on Sunday. This was my first attempt at marathons on consecutive weekends, but I’m glad I did it. It was probably the toughest marathon I’ve run yet, even disregarding the fact that it …

Fargo Marathon, ND

7 states down, 43 to go! Another really great marathon! This race was well-organized and extremely well supported by the Fargo-Moorhead community. I guess when you have such long, cold winters like they do, everyone wants to be a part of one of the first outdoor events of spring. This was just the fourth year …

Salt Lake City Marathon, UT

6 states down, 44 to go! My first solo marathon effort, without a running partner, a support crew, or anyone that I even knew in the state. It was a quick trip too, arriving there the night before the race, just in time to pick up my race packet at the expo, and heading back …

Shamrock Marathon, Virginia Beach, VA

5 states down, 45 to go! What a great marathon! After almost getting stuck during a layover in Atlanta as a tornado shut down the airport, I finally made it to Scott’s house at about 3am Saturday. I was up again around 7am to watch Scott’s son, Carter, run the Mini-Marathon (26.2 yards for toddlers)…and …
