Race Roundup: September(ish)

Eesh it’s been a minute since I posted one of these eh? Even though it’s been a week and a half since we ran it, Ragnar took a bit of my time (and yours I’m sure). But, the roundups are back!! We’ve got quite a bit to share so let’s get to it!   On September 7th  we had three teammates take on the Water Gap in Milford, PA. Sean Bethel and Molly Glenn ran the 50k and Stacy Cameron ran the 25k. Stacy crushed the 25k finishing 1st in her age group and 11th overall, kaled it! Molly finished […]

Ragnar Reach The Beach – 2019

Around this time of year, we are usually preparing for Ragnar ADK. Jess just posted a pic (on Facebook and to your right) of last years crew who camped out in her backyard before the race; this year that tradition of tent city ended as Ragnar decided not to put on the ADK event. The show must go on though so it was decided that our Ragnar for 2019 would be where this whole relay thing began, at the Reach The Beach Race. Ragnar’s Reach The Beach has a storied history. Per wikipedia, “The relay was started in 1999 by […]

Sponsor: Berben and Wolff’s

Berben and Wolff’s have been a sponsor before and we are super appreciative of their willingness to rejoin us for this Ragnar. With the huge success of their Albany location, they have recently opened a second in Troy, NY. These guys are doing the vegan thing right and stand behind all their products, which can be found all over the upstate NY area. For a little more on B&W I snatched this info from their website: “From simpler beginnings as vegan food manufacturers and distributors, Joey Berben and Max Wolff have been dedicated to bringing creative and delicious vegan options […]

Sponsor: Burrito Burrito

As if one burrito wasn’t enough (it never is), our next sponsor had to up the ante and open a business called “Burrito Burrito!” That’s not just a name, it’s a monstrous culinary invention. So, what is it? The burrito burrito is an extra stuffed burrito wrapped in a cheddar quesadilla! Ya, wrap you brain (and mouth) around that one!! They aren’t just about the burritos though (blasphemy) but they’ve got all sorts of your fave tex-mex grub! Located in the Quackenbush building at 333 Broadway in Troy, NY the fine folks at Burrito Burrito create tacos, burritos, empanadas and […]

Race Roundup: Late August 2019

We lengthened this post out a bit; you must all be busy training for something and not running a bunch of races??? With that said, as usual, Jaclyn Shockey is in on another roundup! Jaclyn has been doing the “Valley’s Fastest Man/Woman Series Race” over the past few weeks and has put up some amazing results and times. In her words, “And that’s a wrap! The final mile of the Wyoming Valley Striders fastest mile series was this evening, the dreaded Giant’s Despair Hill Climb. 2nd overall female tonight & finished 2nd overall female for the series, 1st for masters, […]

Race Roundup: Early August 2019

While there might not be a ton of races and activity to report for this week, these two are absolute beasts in and of themselves! Week after week you see teammates running 5k’s, 10k’s upward to 50k’s and 100k’s; you all can’t be stopped and this week we got two ladies that are mile eaters, preferring races that most of us balk at. That said… On the 10th Marie Gryszowka took on the Sweltering Summer Ultra put on by the fine folks that brought us the Vegan Power 25k/50k, the BURCS. Per their website, “Come experience summer in Pittsfield and […]

Race Roundup: Is it August already?

Holy moly is it really August? Are we really only a wee bit over a month until Ragnar?? Where did summah go (I’m an east coast guy, gimme a break)?? I’d say this week was slow but these two are not slow at all! Here’s this weeks roundup!! It seems each week Jaclyn Shockey is in the roundup and, per usual, she’s placing at a race! Jaclyn raced the The 9th Annual Valley Day Races in Conyngham, PA. She said it was “perfect weather for racing! The last time I ran this race was several years ago, & I think this […]

Race Roundup: Late July 2019

Ugh, my apologies for not getting this done sooner. If you’ve been watching the news over the past week, you heard that Cape Cod got it first tornado in years. I work for the cable company and it’s been all hands on deck for days and days now, so time is very limited. That said, I can’t contain the awesomeness that is SHVP for much longer, plus we got some cool stuff that has happened with our runners. Here it goes… On July 20th (into the 21st) Jason Mintz and Anna Walsdorff took on the Candlelight 12 Hour Overnight Ultra […]
