2015 Running Season Finished

Morgantown Marathon start
Barring any last minute running races (maybe a New Years Eve race?) my 2015 season is over. Total tally:

  • 20 marathons including 13 new states
  • 5 half marathons
  • 3 50ks
  • a few shorter distances
  • One injury (hamstring pull) that kept me out of running shoes for about a month
  • Favorite race: Morgantown Marathon (drone photo above) with 2000 ft. of climb

If I add it all up, I probably raced more miles than I trained. Oh well….

My goal for next year is to knock off marathons in at least 10 new states allowing me to complete all 50 in 2017 or 2018.  Hoping to do the Dust Bowl Series and at least one of the following: Center of the Nation Series, Independence Series and/or Southwest Series as well as the Rite Aid Marathon (22nd consecutive  Drug Store marathon), Flying Pig and a few others TBD.

Experdocs – Better Document Management







At the beginning of the year I started working with Archevos Corporation, maker of Experdocs document management software.  Experdocs is both PC and cloud based, so documents can be accessed whether or not connected to the internet. Features include the capacity to organize, share, add intelligence, collaborate, store/protect, and present electronic files (documents, photos, images, and audio/video) with anyone, at any time, and from any location.  Experdocs grew out of the legal and litigation fields but is also used in engineering, business, construction and other areas.

New England Challenge Complete!

Last week I was lucky to participate in the New England Challenge! Completed the marathon distance (26.2 miles) in 5 states (Maine, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts) in 5 Days (Monday through Friday). Then ran my 19th consecutive Rite Aid Cleveland Marathon on Sunday. Great week with no injuries!
