American Zofingen Race Results

Last weekend Agnes Zbylut, Jessica Purcell-Zebrak and Steven Zebrak thought it would be be fun to head up to New Paltz for the toughest race they could find. And head up they did. For those of you who aren’t familiar with American Zofingen, it is the brainchild of our friend John McGovern, who is a fine athlete, and a fine human being, but clearly a sadistic bastard. As such, he scouted out the steepest hills he could find.

The duathlon ...

Simon says, “Win-Win.”

Simon says, “Win-Win.”

I fondly remember the 2010 race season where I vowed in the beginning of the year to get into “sick-nasty” shape. This entry is dedicated to all you folks out there trying to have a child but feeling despair.

In 2009, I went to my doctor with the very crazy thought of becoming a mother. I was very fit and looked it. Along with my fitness was my amenorrhea. She suggested I eat a cookie, gain some weight,  and come back ...

More Brooklyn Half Marathon Results Changes

More Brooklyn Half Marathon Results Changes

Yesterday I wrote about the woman who was originally credited with finishing 4th in the 40-44 age group at Saturday’s Brooklyn Half Marathon. She was later removed from the results, as apparently someone else wore her D-tag. Apparently this was far from an isolated incident. There are certainly several other suspect times, but there are two that jump out, and show just how widespread the cheating and banditry was at the race.

The winner of the 35-39 women’s age group has ...

Busted, Disgusted, Cannot Be Trusted

Busted, Disgusted, Cannot Be Trusted

On Saturday I obliquely referred to a possible cheater at the Brooklyn Half.

Transferring bibs in NYRR races is against the rules, but it’s NYRR’s problem. Unless you beat one of our runners out of an award while using it. Someone’s gonna get put on blast on the blog this week when the Brightroom photos come out.

Allow me to be less oblique. The woman who was listed in 4th place among the 40-44 age group had never broken 2:00 for a ...

50s For Yo Momma Race Results

Posted by:

Belated by hearty congratulations to Kevin Motsch for his second place finish at the 50s For Yo Momma 50-mile trail race. Kevin finished in 9:05:37.  That may seem like a long run, but it was really just a training day for the Chairman of the Ohio chapter of City Coach, since he’s in training for a 100-miler next month.

Great job Kevin.

Despite coming out of his comfort zone, Bobby finished 17th out of 160 finishers. Nate, in his longest race to date finished strong even though he “trained through” the event.

Nice work boys.

Brooklyn Half Marathon Race Report

Brooklyn Half Marathon Race Report
City Coach was born in Brooklyn and our first JackRabbit program was the Brooklyn Half Marathon, so we have a special place in our cold little heart when it comes to the Brooklyn Half. So after all the drama about the course, the fees, the size of the field, as well as a heat advisory for a day when the temps topped out in the low-60’s during the race, we’re happy to report that we had a very strong ...
