Training begins and racecation news

First international racecation is booked! I’ve been vaguely aware of Zooma from MCM Mama Runs and Wendy (? I think) when she posted about Great Lakes, but when MCM & Marcia posted about Bermuda, it went from vaguely aware to ooh! Bermuda is one of those places I’ve always thought about going but never acted […]


Running, social media and Father’s Day

Yes, this is inspired by #BraveLikeGabe, but before I get to the serious stuff…   Although it may seem that Liz and my’s favorite sport is running, we actually have a far more amusing and cerebral habit: Englishing. AKA trying to make heads or tails of the differences in our language. This goes back probably […]


Tuesday Topics: Women Run, 2019

Oh pink! I was actually planning to wear a different top this year, but it didn’t work with the skirt and for some bizarre reason I cared about matching. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida to recap the 2019 Women’s Mini 10K. I knew a course PR wasn’t in the cards, but wanted to get […]


Planning, shopping, running

So I was pretty sure I knew what I was going to do as far as group training for the fall. And then the details came out with an 11:00 top. Nope. I was actually feeling kind of weird about Mile High training anyway as I haven’t really done the classes in a long time […]


Running and travel

So I think I’m back. But I runfess that there is almost no chance that I’m going to catch up. I’m trying though and if there’s a post you think I should see, please drop a link. In case you missed it, here’s where I was the last week. Since I booked this conference and […]


Travel Tuesday: Dixie Road Trip

I’m back from my week away and will most likely have a mega Weekly Run Down next Sunday since I didn’t get it posted today. In my defense, I didn’t get home until 2 AM due to some weird flights. Although there were no long runs, it was a good, active week. Somehow, despite a […]


Reading, and running. And more reading

So much reading this week. I finished Tommy Tomlinson’s excellent The Elephant in the Room, am reading Tom Piazza’s Why New Orleans Matters ahead of a visit to New Orleans and on Tuesday night went to Dr. Jill Biden’s 92nd Street Y event for Where the Light Enters. I love having allthebooks going at once, […]


Auschwitz: Not Long Ago. Not Far Away

context, because this former travel blog evolved into a weight loss and running blog over the last decade. I actually thought of reactivating my Tumblr for this instead, but decided this is not a subject which I can stomach trolls on. *** Sixteen years ago I was in Prague in January. I didn’t make it […]


Tuesday Topics: #NewportFiesta5K

it was a fiesta indeed! Joining Zenaida and Kim for Tuesday Topics to determine whether riding a unicorn leads to PRs Earlier this year, NYRR announced their first race in New Jersey, likely in answer to NYC Runs taking over the Newport Half. I was on the fence about doing this race as it was […]


Running technology

Running is cheap. You just need to get out the door and go. Hahahaha. It’s a cliché we see everywhere. But before I get there, nod to why & how much I love the various link ups & the community here. Quickest ever crowd sourcing and I’m going back to modified Higdon. Thank you! As […]
