About

I am Ed Mahoney.  Happily married for over half my life and father of two wonderful girls.  As of late fall 2016, I’m a published author, writing fiction.  I also work in computer security for IBM.  This is my personal blog and the viewpoints it expresses in no way represent those of my employer.

If you are here because you clicked on URLs for either Cyber War I or Lobo Media, those sites are under construction.  They will be in place to support a book I am publishing, Cyber War I.

I run because I love the hedonistic carnality of it.  Running, racing even, feels very natural to me.  I also appreciate the way sport serves as the perfect metaphor for life.  Not just to write about in a blog, but as an alternative life experience.  My performance running mirrors my everyday life and work struggles.  The stories are not limited to running.  This is a runner’s life story.

  1. Hi Ed! Found your blog in a search for Imogene Pass, but it looks like you’ve done a lot of the races my husband and I want to try out (we’re in Albuquerque so Colorado and Texas are fairly close).

    Thanks for your great race recaps! I’m sure I’ll be referring back to your blog for race info.

    • Yes, if you are lucky you can treat it while still running. Many running injuries simply require you to not run for 6 weeks. Still, you need to understand the cause or you might get it again. Sometimes the right shoes, other times you need to change your form. My left leg is shorter than my right and I need to ensure I don’t over stride. A really good running shoe store might help you with video. A knowledgeable Physical Therapist is best – one who knows runners.
