This past Sunday I ran my last race of the year and it was a fun finish to my 2015 season.
In the wee hours of the morning… okay, it was technically still nighttime (or “stupid o’clock” as my running coach calls it), I awoke to get ready for the Lexus LaceUp Riverside Half Marathon.
After tossing on my running garb and grabbing a can o’ caffeine (of the Diet Coke variety) to go, I was off to pick up my buddy Kelly for the trek to Riverside.
This was the fourth and final race in the Lexus LaceUp 2015 series and as one of the LaceUp ambassadors, I’ve enjoyed all of the races that preceded it:
- Irvine (Oct. 17th)
- Ventura (Oct. 24th)
- Palos Verdes (Nov. 14th)
And this climactic chapter in the “LaceUp quadrilogy” did not disappoint. Read the rest of this entry
Just a little photgraphic epilogue to last Saturday’s Lexus LaceUp Irvine 10K…
As I mentioned in the review, the fine folks at Runner Buzz teamed up with the race to provide each runner free race photos (a very nice perk). I ended up augmenting them with a few other candids I took.
Looking forward to another race and batch of photos at this weekend’s Lexus LaceUp Ventura Half Marathon.
Lace ’em up… and Run on!

Tie those running shoes for the first stop on the Lexus LaceUp 2015 race series. The series also includes races in Ventura (Oct. 24th), Palos Verdes (Nov. 14th) and Riverside (Dec. 6th). The Irvine race was a little different than the others in the series in that it offered only 10K/5K distances, whereas the other races also include the half marathon.
The fact that racers were only running 10K or 5K didn’t seem to dim anyone’s spirits, as a festive bunch of runners gathered in the park on a Saturday morning for fun jaunt around Irvine. Read the rest of this entry
Good news this past week as I was among those chosen to be an ambassador to the 2015 Lexus LaceUp Running Series.

Each of the races features scenic courses and offers runners the option of pounding the pavement for a half marathon, 10K or 5K. Read the rest of this entry
