I joined MRC in May 2015 and have been running off and on for 25 years. It seems that I have always run in some form or another. Whether is was cross training for swimming while I was in high school and college, running track as a senior in high school just to take a…

The Leadville Trail 100 Run was the best running experience I’ve had to date. This seems strange to say because it seems that running a 100 mile race has to be one of the most asinine activities in which a human being can participate. You will be starting before sunrise, running all day and into…

I signed up for Leadville knowing I needed a kick in the pants, both in running and life. I was craving an adventure and my running had been lackluster since knee surgery a couple years ago. The mountains have always had a hold on me; I grew up in California camping and hiking in the…

Leadville is something I wanted since hearing about a friend of mine tackling it on the bike.  I knew I’d never have the ability to do it on two wheels, but I thought for sure I could on two legs.  Why not try? I am a big believer in just jumping in with two feet…

I’m not sure if I’ve ever written an ‘OFFICIAL’ Race Report – I’m not, going to. I’ll keep this race to me and to those beautiful, kick you in the butt Colorado mountains. I want to give THANKS though!   There was no way I could’ve done this without all the support and encouragement from…

Boston – 2016 The only thing sweeter than a BQ is crossing that finish line on Boylston Street. My running journey started at age 8.  Running laps for hole punches at recess.  See, I’m from a small town in MO known for running.  We have loads of State Championships to prove that fact.  I’m a…

The 120th Boston Marathon by Jessica Northup   This was my second time running Boston, the first was in 2011. Before I get to the race day recap I wanted to share the other reason this year meant so much to me. In late December my friends daughter was diagnosed with a brain tumor and it…

Before I even begin with a race report, I need to start with the journey to Boston. Since it has been a hell of a journey and this being my first Boston Marathon I feel that it’s most important to start from the beginning…so I HIGHLY recommend that you grab a cold drink, this maybe long, CHEERS!…

Boston 2016 was my sixth running of this race which celebrated its 120th anniversary this year.  As a runner, there is nothing that compares to the electricity in Boston race week.  From the moment you arrive at the airport until you cross that beautiful finish line, the energy is so powerful.  I have run other…

Everything about Boston lives up to the hype. The expo, the course, the spectators, the volunteers… it was an experience of a lifetime and being there you can see why people have it on their bucket list. The expo is HUGE! The spectators lined up as you walk the .7 miles from the starters village…

On Monday April 18, 2016 I realized a dream of mine, running the Boston Marathon.  26.2 miles from Hopkinton to Copley Square was a tough journey, but a journey that had me smiling so BIG for 26.2 miles! It was a sunny, beautiful day to join 30,000 runners on a “long run” into Boston.  The…

Now that the dust has settled and I’ve had a chance to reflect on how amazing the 2016 Boston Marathon experience was, I first need to say that I am so fortunate to have been offered a bib from the AT&T corporate team.  Having qualified in late 2015, I would have to wait until fall…
