The Rosies

Posted by:

Nocheating480Over dinner with some of the Reach the Beach squad last night, the topic of running cheaters came up.  In that vein, I think it’s time for a new award.  The Rosie.  Henceforth, this humble blog will award Rosies – for noteworthy efforts to shorten courses and otherwise avoid the hassle of playing by the rules – in memory of ...

Pick Your Olympian

Posted by:

NevilleOK, let’s play a game.  If you could be any Olympian from the Beijing games, who would it be?  I guess the most obvious and common (and perfectly valid) answers would be Michael Phelps, who was more dominant than any swimmer ever, or Usain Bolt, who comes from an island with the population of Brooklyn and who trains on a ...
