Let’s get the easy part over with first. Only two marathons are offered in Maine. So sit down, get out your credit card out and register. Absolutely no way the other one is better than Bay of Fundy Marathon. Is the course difficult HARD? HELL YES! But do you sign up for races because they are easy or flat? No sane person would be doing the 50 states or a marathon, so welcome… Read More

Race week is here and I have to say more than usual I am excited to do this race. Any race that you are required to have a passport check prior to the race is going to be cool. I just think it is COOL to be able to cross into another country during a race. We are still shallow into the work week but are making our preparations for departure on… Read More

Connecticut was the state most recently placed on the completed list as of 10/10/15. We travel via 73SD up to Hartford, CT to show our love once again for the northeast states. As usual, we departed Louisburg, NC and made the 3.5 hour trip up the east coast with a stop in Maryland. In hindsight, the stop was unnecessary since the prevailing winds were pushing us at close to 200mph, making the… Read More

Ahhhhhhh….my favorite week is over. Race week. This past weekend Nicole and I made the short 45min flight up to Ashland, VA in crystal clear skies for the Patrick Henry Half Marathon. This race was a tune up race for me but meant a state completed for Nicole. I had already completed Virginia with the Marine Corp Marathon so after the race Nicole got the honor of coloring a state while I… Read More

Here in the US and more exactly the South Eastern section of the US, marathon season is on hiatus during this extremely hot and humid time of year. Well that is unless you enjoy becoming dehydrated and hallucinating during long runs in 90+ degree weather. Most states have hung up the towel on marathons until the fall, except maybe a few of our northern states that still enjoy days in the mid… Read More

Rhode Island shared with us some really cool experiences both on the course, with travel and new friends. As always, to give it it’s just dues, we must start at the beginning. Friday, May 1st we departed in heavy rain as a low pressure associated with a cold front delivered mind numbing instrument conditions over all of North Carolina extending into Virginia and parts of Delaware. Within 500ft of departing the ground,… Read More

This past weekend we took a little trip up to Washington DC. A business related conference was the cause but that did not stop us from taking in the sites how runners vacation. Let me tell you about how Nicole vacations or “relaxes” a term which I use loosely and with a hint of sarcasm. When Nicole knows she is going away for the weekend her phone/computer/ipad and even scraps of paper… Read More

In 21 days we will be traveling to the great state of Rhode Island for the Providence RI Marathon. http://www.rhoderaces.com/#!race-info/c66t Some cool things going on here at FlyRunEatRepeat. #1 After careful consideration from the 50 States Marathon board I was granted access into the club after completing my 10th state. That is said with a little sarcasm because you essentially send them a $10 check and a list of all the states… Read More

We are back home from the great state of Kentucky. Our medals are hung on the rack and our pins are placed on the office map. This story could simply be over but that would not be fair to our blog family. Let’s begin and I will warn you this post may be rather long because a lot of cool things happened so please allow me to take you through the weekend… Read More

Our plan for knocking off races is underway. We have registered and started our training for the first of many Marathons. Delaware is hosting the Triple Crown Trail Race – 26.2 April 26th and we have paid good money to run through their woods. The race promises mud and several creek crossing. SWEET!! We will bring details as we train. I know one of the items that has to be replaced soon are shoes. Nicole and… Read More
