This is a VERY popular race. Flat, fast, great long sleeve tech shirt, ice cream, and chocolate milk! The starting line is in the Nashville MetroCenter area. Terri and I have run on the Music City Greenway and like it. With the race being in April, I’m sure we’ll sign up for a couple between [...]

On December 22, 2012, I participated in the 26.4.26 run. It was a benefit for the victim’s families of Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, CT. It was originally thought of by Robbie Bruce, of X3 Endurance. You should read his Facebook Note about the genesis of the run. Hunter Lane and Season Kaminski were his [...]
The Grinder’s Switch Turkey Trot is one tough course. The first segment is all downhill. Of course this gives very fast paces. The next segment is very flat. And then…. the long uphill. Very tiring! All in all, this race is well run and fun. Centerville is lucky to have such a race.
Tomorrow is the Breathe Deep Nashville 5K race at Centennial Park. It’ll be a flat course with only a little uphill when we turn on to 31st Avenue. I’ve gotten to a point where I really look forward to the races. Not that I’m fast or good, but it gets us away from the track [...]
Nashville Running Company (Link to YouTube video) Several of the races have early packet pickup at this store in East Nashville’s 5 Points area. This is an awesome store with very knowledgeable people running it. While it isn’t as large as some of the chain stores we’ve been to, it has a higher quality selection. All [...]
This is the second time Terri and I have run this race. It has always been a fun race. It’s a tough course that has a couple of good climbs. The problem with these climbs, they are at the end of the race! Even with a really sore back, I managed to set a personal [...]
In the featured video section, I found a commercial for the November 19 race. It’s only a couple of weeks away. And then it’s the Grinder’s Switch Turkey Trot on the “home” course!
On Saturday I go to the Grey Ghost Run in Spring Hill. I say “I” and not “We” because Terri has a nasty ankle injury. It’s driving us, I mean her, crazy. (She’s a terrible patient, just ask her.) The day promises to be a very busy day for us. The race at 8am with [...]
I’ve had a few issues with the old knee. I’m thinking it’s from the running on blacktop with shoes that have little padding. Don’t get me wrong, I loved those Nike Free Run shoes. It’s just time to think about other things. I bought a pair of Mizuno Wave Rider 14. After a short run [...]
The Halloween in the Gulch race was my best race yet. I had my best time, beating the old time by a few seconds. At the same time, it had the toughest climb of all the races. Just after we turned right on to Charlotte from 11th we had a four block climb from 10th [...]
