Goodbye Ed Whitlock, You Will Be Missed!

photo credit: Todd Fraser/Canada Running Series)

We were saddened yesterday to hear of the passing of marathon great Ed Whitlock of prostate cancer. He was a Canadian runner who held multiple world records for age group finishes in the marathon. His most recent feat was to break 4:00 at the Toronto Waterfront Marathon at age 85.

We interviewed Ed about his world records, training, and philosophy of life on MTA podcast episode 195. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ed’s family. He was truly an inspiration to the entire running world!

Now we want to offer you the same opportunity to get this holiday deal . . . Continue Reading →

We just embarked on a 2 month trip, which I am calling our Epic Summer Conquest.

I call it that because our camper is a Gulf Stream Conquest and Angie thinks I overuse the word epic, which makes me want to use it more haha.

Our plans (conquest goals) are to see family, run races, visit national parks and make amazing memories for our kids! Continue Reading →

A Rewarding Experience as a Race Volunteer

IMG_3359 (1)-2My first time volunteering meant more than cutting up fruit and handing out water during a race supporting cancer research.

Billy. Paul. Bob.

They are among the millions of Americans who have succumbed to cancer. Each of my aforementioned friends was taken way too soon. Of those three, only Bob would live long enough to ever meet his grandchildren. The others passed well before what we would consider middle age.

Those whose lives have been ravaged by cancer were on my mind a few Saturdays ago as I volunteered at The Purdue Challenge, a 5K run-walk which benefits cancer research at the university. Continue Reading →
