Race Day Bib Pick Up

We often say that race directing is like throwing a lot of balls up in the air and hoping to catch them all them at the same time – but that rarely happens.  We catch a lot – but no race goes off without a hitch. No matter how many contingencies we try to plan […]

Spring is in the air (?)

Like many of you are probably feeling, this winter is starting to wear thin.  We have training runs on the calendar, races on the horizon – it is time for green grass and Spring jackets!  The daffodils were popping up and then were buried under a foot of snow!  But nevertheless – this is New England. […]

Winter Running

This winter has been particularly difficult for running (although we may say that every year).  Record cold, snow bombs, ice – Mother Nature is giving us lots of reasons to stay inside.   But for some of us – the weather doesn’t stop us, not running outside is not an option.  Whether you are training for […]

2018 Rhode Masters

We are so excited to announce our registration is open for the 2018 Rhode Races Series. We had such a phenomenal  response from this year’s Series that we are going to operate under the auspices of “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it….” Our Rhode Masters are a very special group to us – because […]

Why Do You Run?

I have been coaching a Girl’s HS team and in hopes of inspiring the team – it has given me a reason to pause and look into why I run, why we run?  What is our motivation and reason for pushing ourselves in every race that we do – to get out of the comfort […]

Taking It Off Road

This summer I have reinvigorated my running a bit: Going left when I normally go right, listening to new “curated” playlists rather than my tried, true and tired playlist – but mostly taking to the trails instead of the roads. It has been just what I needed to reignite the love, awe and enjoyment of running. […]
