Eagleman 2015 OK, Too many requests for a race report just forces me to get it all out in the open. I have to give many thanks to the amazing athlete Iron Man of a Man among us, Chris Dettmar. He gave me months of advice and endured long rides with me all the while telling me how great I was doing. He read War and Peace at Bartlows waiting for me once but he always acted like he just got there. After many happy send offs from our Morningstar Family, we had an easy 2 hour trip to the expo and then over to the race location so we could park our bikes ( is the right Ironman term "stage our bikes")?, and took a practice swim in the Choptank River. A River??? It looked like the Atlantic Ocean to me...where's the other side?? Mmmmm, salty water with a mixture of gas fumes from the boats. Marcy Foster June 2015
Shamrock Marathon and Half Marathon On the way to Virginia Beach on Friday, in my car at least,  we were talking about the tradition of writing race reports. What happened?  Were we doing so many races that it seemed a bit much?  Were we afraid to distract Tim from his duties in Djibouti with a silly race report?  Were we too busy polishing our medals and spending the winnings  Marcy Foster March 2015

Bay Swim 2013 As a child I was a devoted Marco Polo fan, and fearless cannonball competitor. But I was a late-comer to the kind of swimming where your face is in the water the whole time, and your feet never actually touch the bottom of the pool. Anna Bradford June 16th 2013
2012 Bay Swim Report At Sandy Point, the masses found shade in the few trees or tents/shade they had brought. We all hung out after picking up race packets and getting body marked (presumably so they can identify bodies found downstream). Anna Bradford June 12th 2012
This year’s [2012's] Boston Marathon was run in unusual heat, causing many runners to forego the experience of running 26 miles in 88 degree temperatures. Steve Clapp April 25th 2012 
Back in 2002 I was, I figured, an experienced JFK-er with 7 consecutive finishes to my name (along with husband Jim). I'd had some great years and some disappointments, but I'd always sort of thought that if I could start, I could finish. Anna Bradford November 25th 2007
