It has been a long time coming but I can finally start a column by saying: “18-year-old Bryce Bass was the first competitor across the finish line in the 2020 St. Marks Duathlon.   His time of 1:02:49 put him a little more than a minute ahead of Jon Nash who crossed...

​Yes, good things do still happen.  Sometimes, however, it takes awhile. Approximately 40 years ago, Ervin Holiday approached the Directors of the Sickle Cell Foundation, Inc. with the idea of holding a 5K race that would serve as a fundraiser for the Foundation.  The...

A VIEW FROM THE TOP – September 6, 2020

Heading out for the early morning run when I was struck by the little breeze bending through the trees. It happens every year. If we pay attention, we runners are so attuned to the seasons, their length and intensities, the subtle changes in wind direction that herald...

A Long Race Running from the Virus D Yon 04-2020

March 7, 2020, was the last weekend of racing in Tallahassee. I ran the Shamrock Scurry 5K that weekend. Two weeks later, Rachel and Zack Scharlepp, directors of the Springtime Tallahassee races, were told there would be no race on March 28. Only a few days after that...

Running Streak Interrupted DY Democrat 04-01-20

It is as simple as this – a runner must run, and so too a coach must coach. We just never anticipated something like COVID-19 lurking in the shadows ready to poison anyone who gets too close. For the runner who wants to get faster, there are weekly intervals at...
