Clearwater Running & Fitness Festival Race Report

One of my favorite places to run is Clearwater Beach by Pier 60 for a variety of reasons.  Its beautiful there.  We have a nice 13 mile loop that we run frequently.  It lets us do an open water swim right after we run which is a great way to kill 2 birds with 1 stone.  And then there’s the part that people probably don’t usually like other than us crazy people – the bridges.  There are some truely massive bridges on the route as well as some gently rolling terrain on the back half of our 13 mile loop.  …

Disney’s Tower of Terror Ten-Miler Race Report

So this past weekend was the Disney Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Ten-Miler. It was actually a whole weekend of fun when you combine it with the Orlando outlet malls before the race and then the next day we went to Epcot for the Food & Wine festival.

My final time was 2:04:26 which is a huge PR (personal record for you non-runners). I PRed while training …
