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(…)

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.

After deciding at the last minute to change from a full marathon to a half, I ran a good race. What a gorgeous course and city !! Easily one of my top favorites just for the city and its awesome people. The weather couldn’t have been better for running. My son Chevy ran the race(…)
Another race in what might potentially become annual ritual for me in Chicago. Unlike last year, this time the organization absolutely awful. The expo was a total disaster with long lines and absolute chaos. There wasn’t enough water stations despite the predicted hot weather on race day. All in all this was probably the worst(…)
