2022 Boston Marathon Race Report


2022 Berlin Marathon Race Report

We arrived in Berlin a couple of days before the race but we had been in Germany for 10 days. If you are coming from North America I would strongly suggest that you arrive a week early in order to deal with the jet lag. The six hour time difference is enough to make you…

RunK2J was well represented in Ottawa Race Weekend. Volunteering activities spread over 3 days, and we had runners entered in all 5 race categories! Thanks for everyone in participating.

Terry’s 2022 Longueuil Marathon

The marathon course is two loops. New for 2022, the second loop is slightly different with a section on a bike path along the St-Lawrence. The course is relatively flat with only a few minor hills in old Longueuil and the ramp over the highway for loop two of the marathon.

Terry’s Istrian Marathon (Slovenia)

The course takes you through four cities along the Adriatic. The first part of the race is up in Ankaran. We run down towards Koper which is directly by the water. This is when the race shines with it’s scenery. Plus, it’s flat. The section towards Izola is beautiful along the sea wall. There are…

May was timeframe to complete Ottawa Race Weekend virtual runs, and the game…

Las Vegas Rock and Roll Marathon – 1/2 Marathon Race Report

Running down the Las Vegas strip at night sounded amusing so when my sister, Susan Ibach, suggested we run the half at Rock and Roll Las Vegas Marathon I jumped on a plane, which sat on the tarmac for 90 minutes, and eventually took us to Las Vegas. We landed Friday and went to the…

Boston 2 Big Sur race report from 2017 – Its all James’ fault A few months ago, over a beer, after a workout, James pointed out that this year the Boston Marathon  and the Big Sur Marathon are 13 days apart rather than 6. He suggested that based on that and the fact that we…
