The “Run a Pleasant Mile” in Tewksbury follows the same course as the Fudgecicle 5K, a midwinter race for hardcore runners who don’t mind temps near zero.

I’ve run the Fudgecicle many times. But today I’m taken aback. I’ve never seen my Fudgecicle friends with bare arms…bare legs..and faces free of ski-masks!

Come! Run with me! This HD video puts you right in the middle of this race. (Be sure to view it in Full-Screen, so you’ll see the photos in panoramic, high-resolution.)

Were you at this race–and if so, what did you like best about it? What could be improved?

(If you weren’t there, I hope these photos and HD video gave you a taste of the race…and I hope I’ll see you at a race next week.)

Great Bay Half Marathon

The Great Bay Half marathon is a big race (part of the Locorunning “Will Run for Beer” seeies), with runners flowing over the rolling hills of seacoast New Hampshire. Musicians and dancers along the way provide entertainment, and everyone has a great time.

I’ve got an injury, so I can’t run today…but I’ll bike the course, and you can run along with me!


They call themselves Nice & Naughty. (Hmmm… Which one’s naughty?)

April Fools Race in Salisbury, MA

Hate hills?

Then you’ll love the April Fools Race in Salisbury, MA. It’s an absolutely flat out-and-back road race that doesn’t have an inch of elevation gain over the four-mile course!

(And at the end, there’s camaraderie and cold beer at the Winner’s Circle. :-)

So what are we waiting for? Come! Run with me…


The sun is shining… The road is flat… and we’re off!

(I took this photo, and the others below, while running.)
