    Happy New Year

    Posted on by

    One thing that is making me even more nuts than usual is when someone says something horrible and then puts “happy new year” on the end of it.  Like “hey, wow, we didn’t tell you?  You’re not doing that gig.  Happy New Year!”  or “Your hotel room won’t be ready for three hours.  Happy New… Read more »

    Suck my BQ

    Posted on by

    I wanted to run Boston.  The bombing last year made we want to want it even more.  I wasn’t the only one.   Even given the more difficult standards imposed, and the fact that I’ve aged into a new division, I missed it.  I missed it by 20 seconds. The hows and whys of the… Read more »

    Sometimes nothing goes wrong

    Posted on by

    Racing is a gamble.  Anything can go wrong.  It can rain.  You can be hungover.  It can be hot.  It can rain, you can be hungover, and it can be hot.  You can eat a bad piece of tuna.  Hell, you can eat a good piece of Tuna and still have to step off the… Read more »

    There’s no relaxing in running

    I can’t believe I’ve gone all summer without the opportunity to bitch about training in the heat or racing in the heat or sleeping in the heat or complaining about the heat.  It’s been a hot summer — at least until the last week or so, when it’s been blissfully nice out. That being said,… Read more »

    Portugal Day 5 Miler

    Posted on by

    It’s been a crazy couple of weeks.  I’ve been working a traveling more than usual, and have found myself in Arkansas and Dallas.  Surprisingly, Arkansas had weather that was a lot better for running, a lot cooler. I was in Fayetteville, which is the home to a great running store as well as a pretty great network… Read more »

    I hear this course is flat, right?

    Posted on by

    I’m having a good couple three weeks.  I ran my third race in a row today, and it went ok. I’m in Anaheim, having arrived here yesterday.  I felt I could best affirm my attention to detail and respect for my clients by trying to find a race to run the day after I arrived…. Read more »

    Healthy Kidney 10k

    Posted on by

    I feel lucky to have been able to race two weekends in a row.  That’s a bit counter-intuitive as I kinda hate racing. I hate when the race is over and I’m eating a nice bagel (do I sound like a 70 year old man?  “a nice bagel” as opposed to a mean bagel.  Or a… Read more »

    Misery loves Repetition

    Posted on by

    I am going to run in the Healthy Kidney 10k the day after tomorrow.  This is a race that last year lead to my slow summer decline into crappy times so I’m a little stressed out. So before I mess up my confidence by having a shit race, I wanted to remember the 5k I ran last… Read more »

    Happiness is a long run. Ending at Mall.

    Posted on by

    It’s been a hard week to be a runner.  Or a human being, for that matter.  These fucking asshole terrorists have forever associated one of the greatest running events in the world with an act of cowardice without parallel.  That a few fans standing on the street should give their lives as they cheer on their friends and neighbors reminds… Read more »

    I got your stich right here

    Posted on by

    Last week was the Scotland 10k in Central Park.  As soon as I got out of the car, I was filled with self doubt.  Not about my race, which I was confident I could mess up without any doubt, but about what I waswearing.  It’s April.  It’s supposed to be spring.  I was going to… Read more »
