GET OUT THERE

Asking Jeremy to coach me was one of the best decisions I had ever made. Week after week, he pushed me out of my comfort zone, something I would have never done if I was training by myself.

Sara Ilnicki

His detailed training on a weekly bases pushed me to my limits, and over sometimes, to grow. He knew my ultimate goal was to qualify for Boston, and he kept me on track.

Alex Lane

I was impressed with Jeremy’s profile and noted that he started from nothing and had worked up to a marathon distance, but was also a family man who would understand my need to keep family first.

Running Sunglasses Review – Run good, look goodr

I am always losing my running sunglasses. Or they fall off my face mid-run and I come close to making an acrobatic catch, tipping them in the air, but never securing them, only to have them crash to the ground, leaving a scratched lens that will drive me nuts every...

Aftershokz Wireless Running Headphones Review – Safe running while listening to music

I enjoy the solitude and sounds of the run. The sound of my feet greeting the road. My rhythmic breathing. The birds chirping. The rustle of the leaves as a skunk approaches my path. The car engine behind me that doesn't care that I have the right-of-way through the...

Can I race during my marathon training?

I have a lot of athletes ask if they should skip a race if it falls in their marathon training plan. It is a tough decision if you really like to race. When you race, you are giving your best effort, which leaves you quite drained. The problem with this is that most...

Knuckle Lights Product Review. An alternative to the headlamp

Be safe. Be seen. Those are my two biggest concerns when I go running in the dark. With a full time job and kids in multiple sports, early morning or late evenings/nights are sometimes the only option for getting in my training runs. I have used a headlamp to light my...

2017 Winchester Beer Mile – Race Recap

Let me just start by saying Running Dad in no way promotes the consumption of alcohol or alcohol abuse. Please drink (and run) responsibly. With that said, what better way to spend a balmy New Years Day than by running circles around the Heavner abode while chugging...

Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water – How good is your pre-hydration game?

I like to think that I have a discerning pallet when it comes to beverages. I can wax poetic about the citrus notes in a west coast IPA, or the earthy undertones in a glass of red wine. When I was sent a case of Eternal Naturally Alkaline Spring Water to test and...

Seashore Nature Trail 50k – Race Recap

When Sara asked me if I would run a 50K in Virginia Beach with her, I gladly agreed. I have coached her through several marathons and knew she was ready to try a new distance. Would I be able to run a race without racing, though? Could I quell those competitive juices...

2016 JFK 50 Mile Race Recap. Oops, I did it again …

My exact words last year when I wrote about my first Ultramarathon experience, the JFK 50 Miler in Boonsboro, Maryland were: "Such a terrible idea." I reiterated those sentiments several times in the article. See for yourself:...
