Blaine Moore

Runner and Writer.


Blaine MooreI ran for 4 years at the Rochester Institute of Technology on the cross country and track & field teams, which were NCAA Division III programs. Now, I am a local runner here in Portland, Maine. I spent the two years with the Run to Win men's team, and now race for Dirigo in the USATF-NE Grand Prix circuit.

My goal is to run a marathon in every state, as well as in the District of Columbia and in foreign countries. To that end, I have so far completed 7 marathons, and have been running at a pace of two per year. I plan to speed that up to 3 per year, but held off this year as I thought that buying a house and getting married were more important.

When I am not running marathons, I compete in races between 1 mile and the half marathon, with the majority being 5 kilometer and 10 kilometer races. I supplement my training with weight lifting, swimming, and bicycle riding. I would like to try a triathlon at some point, but I am not a very strong swimmer and am diligently working on that aspect of the race.

I am currently working on putting a training plan together that anybody could use to comfortably run and recover from a 3 hour marathon.
