    Bio Diversity: Summer in Las Vegas

    Posted on by

    Back in Vegas, baby! I am lucky enough to have two jobs — in a row — in Las Vegas.  And, it being July, it is hot as hot can be out there.  I’ve been getting out most mornings, when it is a very nice 70° or so, but by the evening it’s well over… Read more »

    San Francisco: I get it now

    Posted on by

    In the mid 90s, I watched my first episode of ER.  Everyone else in the world had watched it before me.  But for some reason, I missed it.  I didn’t know what the big fuss was.  Then I saw it.  There was action.  Smart doctors, attractive people, heroic, lifesaving measures.  After ten minutes, I got it.  I… Read more »

    Long Run Red Rocks ROCKS

    Posted on by

    Whoa.  Way too long since my last post.  Here’s what’s going on:  Boston training in full swing.  Feel sluggish all the time, except when I don’t.  Then I feel like a gazelle.  Which is a good feeling.  It’s weird when I flap my wings as I run down suburban streets, but these things happen. I… Read more »

    Posted on by

    I’m the first to complain about running in Las Vegas.  Although I love working here, it can be hard to grind out miles on the strip at any time — in the morning, there are drunks and whores.  The rest of the day, just tons and tons of people.  I’ve blogged about it. That makes… Read more »

    Just got an email that, while expected, generated a great deal of joy. My patriots day will be spent this year with 30,000 of my closest friends. It was a year to the day that I got a much different email. What a difference a year makes!

    Came across this cute story about a dog who decided to run a race.  I love races.  And I love dogs.  And I thought to my self “Self, let’s try posting a youtube video.  What could go wrong?”.

    Running in London. Brilliant.

    Posted on by

    One of the things I love about my job is the travel.  That’s not really true.  But one of the things that’s true about my job is that I travel.  And I do notice that running is different in different places.  The way people run in China is different than the way people run in… Read more »

    Day off: Training Starts now

    Posted on by

    I love running. Really. Hauling my ass out of bed in the middle of the night to dodge traffic in a strange city  whose design seemingly includes no concern for pedestrian traffic flow generally or my life specifically  Dream come true. Sometimes, though, it’s hard to get up. Maybe it’s dark and cold and rainy… Read more »

    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 »
