Not nearly as big as NYC; and the experience of running with less than 1000 runners was distinctly different than running with 50000+ runners. Felt nice to run in a city I was close to deciding to move a few years ago when I was working for Wachovia (now Wells Fargo); Ran 30 minutes faster(…)
On a cold, windy day, I ran with 50000+ other runners and my son Sravisht “Chevy” Iyer. Not exactly the time I’d ever want to mention to anyone, but the experience was unparalleled. Awesome course, and even more awesome crowd support. Ferry, shuttle, and the start line wait – everything worked perfectly.
I may never be able to do 777 like my son, but I did 333 – 3 marathons, 3 states, 3 weekends !!! Des Moines was a fun race; Small but with a lot of energy and crowd support. Course highlight was running a lap on Drake University track. Was going to do Marine Corps(…)
Our younger son, Visraant Iyer, completed the 777 challenge by running the 7th Marathon in Chicago on Sunday, Oct 12th. This is his update from his facebook page: “7 marathons, 7 continents, 7 days: done. Hi everyone, While it’s still fresh, and before I take a little nap, I just wanted to say thank you.(…)
Oregon checked off my list. But this week I am more excited about what my son is attempting to do. As I was running in Portland, he is on an insane trip around the world trying to run 7 marathons in 7 days in 7 continents. Anyway, back to Portland. It is a beautiful city(…)
Our younger son Visraant Iyer is embarking on a crazy adventure today – Friday Oct 3rd, 2014. He is running 7 marathons in 7 days in 7 continents and wants to become the youngest in the world to do so alone without any crew or additional support. He is leaving Chicago today with the first(…)
Ran the Omaha Marathon On Sunday, Sep 21st. Downtown Omaha, contrary to what I thought, was really nice. The race was well organized but absolutely no crowd support. Next up Portland, Oregon on Oct 5th.
Ran the Sioux Falls Marathon in “I’d kill myself or boredom would kill me if I were to run or work here everyday” Sioux Falls, South Dakota, as part of 50-state Marathon goal. Next up another flatland state – Omaha, Nebraska.
Annual Labor Day ritual – to run 13.1 miles (Oakbrook Half Marathon) through my neighborhood. Hot humid trail running. Race number 15 for the year. Goal of 14 in 14 done…Not hanging it up for the year yet…Let’s see how far my knees can hold up without necessitating a visit to an ortho.
