Training on the Airport Mesa Trail Loop, Devil’s Bridge In Sedona AZ

Something a little bit different this time for training since I was traveling last week (Jacksonville, FL) and only got home for less than 24 hours before heading out again to Arizona. I landed at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport around 2pm local time, jump straight on to the rental car shuttle bus and made my way to the nearby rental car park. After getting myself a …

Saturday Training December 3rd – Central Park

Another weekend and another beautiful training day for running around Central Park. Started off around 12 noon riding a Citi Bike north along Central Park West making my way to the starting point where the NYRR Joe Kleinerman 10K starts on January 7th 2017.

Saturday Training…Might Have Skipped Last Sunday

The ultimate goal is to be able to run a sub 3 hour 30 minute marathon time, the first target is a …

Starting 2017 Early With Marathon New Year Resolutions Goals

Marathon running is certainly not something I personally ever thought I would do when I was in my younger years and not something that I’ve done all that much of, but setting a goal and achieving it is certainly a great way to motivate yourself. Waking up one morning in October I decided it was time to get back into running again. Perhaps it was the …

VMWorld 2016 – Las Vegas, NV

From August 28th through September 1st I spent some time in Las Vegas attending at VMworld 2016 conference. This was my first trip to VMworld and was quite an experience. One of my favorite things I saw on the trade floor was BigDaddy+ – this absolutely blew me away. An 8 node Supermicro* SuperServer 2028U-TN24R4T all-flash NVME vSAN cluster. Dual Intel® Xeon® E5-2687Wv4 (12 Core @ …
