    Winter Running

    Posted on by

    Just did a short job in Buenos Aires. Where it’s winter.  It gets dark early.  People walk down the street bundled up in scarfs and thick jackets.  The other runners I saw were all in tights and compression sleeves.   People huddle together against the cold while waiting for the bus. It was 50°. So anyway, it was… Read more »

    Beautiful day in Grapevine. Speed workout on a treadmill.

    Posted on by

    I’m in lovely Grapevine, Texas. Really, it’s nice here. Good flat roads, not a lot of traffic. I’m staying at the Gaylord Texan, which is a totally unremarkable place, but it’s remarkably close to a nice residential area, which seems very runner friendly. I had a couple of good runs, yesterday with a buddy, so… Read more »

    Posted on by

    Well, my job in Miami was just fine — no major stress, good people.  Couldn’t fit in a speed workout, and wound up doing the same out and back three times.  Normally that would be unremarkable, but this was a great out and back.  Pancake flat, starting on a boardwalk, then sidewalk (ok so it’s… Read more »

    Very happy, but wish it was a little longer, and that the first mile was a little quieter, but for what is obviously a heavily populated area it’s a good loop. Run from Marriott Canyon Villas / JW MarriottFind more Runs in Phoenix, Arizona

    Run at the Rockies — a nice surprise

    Posted on by

    I’m running Boston this spring,; I’m waiting for a plan I ordered from Greg McMillan.  16 weeks of training will begin on the 28th, so I have another week of listless sloth.  OK, that’s not exactly right, but I’m not running hard, trying to establish a good base to offset burnout.  So it’s hard to… Read more »
