2018 Monument Avenue 10k

Monument Ave 10k

Saturday I ran the Monument Avenue 10k for the first time in 6 years.  The weather was absolutely perfect – warm but not hot with mostly sunny. I have an ambitious running goal for this year and it was good to have this to look forward to for training. I managed to run it in under an hour.

2017 Corporate Run

After wanting to run this race for a few years I finally had the opportunity to run the Anthem Corporate Run with 40 of my co-workers and another 1,000 or more runners from around the city.  Turned out to be a great night for it and I ran a little over 5k in 24:37 for a 7’46” pace.

Running the 2012 Monument Ave 10k

After standing on the sidelines for 3 years cheering on friends and family I finally joined the 30,000 people who signed up and ran the Monument Avenue 10k. Here’s my time and some pictures of running in the rain.

Here I am running the 2012 Ukrops Monument Avenue 10k Presented by Martins.

A Run in the Park

A run in Pony Pasture Park in Richmond, Virginia on an unseasonably warm January afternoon.  It was a chance to test out some new camera equipment.

July 4 Weekend

I had an awesome weekend in Deltaville.  It started with the Inaugural Deltaville 5k.  With zero training I ran the whole thing and had a respectable finish of 26:07.

I took the weekend off from sailing to heal a minor wrist sprain and so  I went right from the 5k to doing race committee at Fishing Bay Yacht Club for the offshore Cut Channel Race.  I got a lot of great pictures of the offshore fleet here.

Saturday night was 4th of July partying, fireworks and swimming.  For Sunday’s racing we thought it was going to be a bit windy so I jumped on a Front Runner as a 3rd crew member, but halfway through the race the wind died and I sat out the next two light wind races and instead went sailing on a Byte in the afternoon.  Saturday night we again watched Fireworks.

Monday was FBYC’s One Design Long Distance Race.  I normally would have sailed my Laser in this, but again I was sitting out to rest my sprained wrist.  I went out for the start and the first two legs to get some photos.  The entire collection is posted here.
