D-Tag Limerick

It's St. Paddy's Day - which means lots of drinking and no running. But after preparing my D-Tag for tomorrow's race my wife and I got caught up in the usual "hilarious" runner jokes that center on how D-Tag sounds like D-Bag (those will always be funny to me) and we even wrote a little limerick in honor of St. Paddy and D-Tags everywhere (and maybe D-Bags too):


The D-Tag Limerick

There are many ways of tracking your pace
When running a road or trail race
I feel like my D-Tag
Is just being a D-Bag
Cause it says that I came in last place


Amazing poetic skills we have, I know. I then tried to find out more about a D-Tag (like what the D actually stands for)... I totally can't find it anywhere - even on the ChronoTrack Systems website. Luckily my wife suggested that it's probably just for "digital." She's a little quicker than me (mentally and running-wise). Anyone have confirmation on that? (on the digital part, not the quickness part - I don't need more confirmation on that)

Also, in case you can't follow the instructions ON the D-Tag (haha, if you're a D-Bag in other words), ChronoTrack Systems has a pdf and a sweet video out there to show you how it works. Unfortunately, if you can't work a D-Tag I don't know that you'd have the Google skills to find these guides.

For the video, try replacing D-Tag with D-Bag every time they say it. It makes it both informative AND hilarious.

Chicagoland's First Annual February Fool's Goal Half Marathon/Debacle Completed!

If you were outside running yesterday, or even if you were just sitting inside looking out the window, you are probably aware that yesterday was a terrible weather day. All day. The temperature stayed between 34 and 40 with freezing rain falling on and off throughout the day.

But that didn't stop a trio of foolish runners from Chicago from completing the inaugural running of Chicago's newest half marathon:

Doyle's Emerald Necklace Road Race

Since I'm in Boston this week visiting Brynn I figured we should be hitting up some of the Boston-area races (especially since neither of us is fast enough to run the Boston Marathon). So, in searching for the most convenient race for us to take on this weekend I stumbled upon the Doyle's Emerald Necklace Road Race - a race now in its 18th year and deemed "legendary" by race organizers. It didn't hurt that this race started at 11am and that the weather was predicted to be sunny and in the mid-60s.

Unfortunately, Boston chose not to cooperate and the weather was in the mid-50s and raining yesterday morning as Brynn and I made our way to the starting line (via bike - her on her own bike and me on a Hubway - the Boston equivalent of Divvy).

We got to what we thought was the starting line at Doyle's Cafe - a small pub/cafe in Jamaica Plain - and checked in to get our race bibs. Here we found out a few things: 1. This race is much bigger than we anticipated (aroun…

The Jingle Bell Run/Walk aka The Trail Run You Didn't Know Chicago Had

It snowed all night. And it snowed all morning. And, as I write this, it is still snowing. In short, it's pretty snowy out there in Chicago right now. This morning - along with a number of other people who didn't know whether to be excited or concerned about all the snow - I ran the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis.

And as the title of this blog implies, it was way more than just a typical Chicago road/sidewalk/Lakefront Trail race:
