We are Steph and Matt, and we love to run.

The only thing we love more than running is taking our love for running on the road. We plan our vacations around destination races, which we use as an excuse to visit new cities and countries: from Quebec to Iceland, Las Vegas to Philly, and Chicago to Phoenix. We are always looking for the next adventure.

These are the brutally honest tales of our half marathon and marathon races. Don’t worry, we won’t bore you with all of our race stories (i.e. 5k, 10k, triathlons, etc). And we’ll only recap those races that we’ve completed and/or spectated together.

Not every race is a PR, and we’ve had our fair share of disappointments and setbacks. But through the good, the bad, and the ugly, we’ve learned invaluable lessons. We hope those lessons will be helpful (and entertaining) to you!
