My 4th marathon and first under 4! 2014 Philadelphia Marathon

This race had been on my mind for a long time – I registered this race as a revenge for my crappy performance at the Delaware Marathon back in May. Philadelphia is known to be the up and coming marathon, trying to join the bigger boys in the block, namely Boston, NYC and Chicago. The […]

Friday Run – 9/26/14
