Weekly Wrap, 11.5

I spent a lot of Marathon Sunday afternoon watching football and catching up online. I really, really need to remember not to read LetsRun. They publish some wonderful articles but the forums are a misogynistic cesspool of the worst order.Ā  My kingdom for a world where raising one person up didn’t result in tearing the […]


NYC Marathon Week

I runfess that I completed my 2,018 miles run/walked on the year and didn’t even realize it. For some reason my brain was reading it was 2118 and I thought I was about 30 miles away. Whoops. So belated wahoo. It’s so surprising to realize that as recently as 2016, 1600+ was my mileage on […]


November Ultimate Coffee Date

Finally saw a coffee post early enough (thanks, Marcia!) to participate in this one that I always enjoy reading. Linking up with Deborah and Coco. Happy birthday to so many of us this month. Short November babies are the best šŸ™‚ Over coffee I’d tell you I’m not as excited as I normally am for […]


Another wacky week

Another week where I knew I’d need to play let’s move the workout. That only intensified as the weather forecast for the weekend worsened. I knew I’d be out of town but the plan was to find somewhere to run near mom (trail is closed due to bridge construction) or borrow a car to go […]


FALLing into chaos, week of 10.14

  how many 80s children get that caption reference? šŸ™‚ Guaranteed entry to NYC Half. Check Registration for Fred Lebow Half. Check In 2018 I ran three half marathons: Lebow, Fort Lauderdale and Brooklyn. In 2019, I’ll run three in the first three months, repeating two of 2018s. I think that’s a good start to […]


2019 planning, and a new Garmin

My new Garmin came on Wednesday! I didn’t get to take it home and play with it until Thursday night. All the notifications! I turned them off nearly immediately, so pardon my continued lack of response to texts while running. šŸ™‚ I haven’t figured out friends yet or anything, but happy to add anyone. *** […]


TOTR: If I had $1,000

I love Tuesdays on the Run. And I love having the “cheat sheet” of the topics early so I can get these written at the weekend. This week? If I had $1000 to spend on running Iā€™dā€¦ Linking up with: Erika at MCM Mama, Marcia at Marcia’s Healthy Slice, and Patty at No Guilt Life. […]


Galloping into October

I feel like it should be a different title since the race from which it takes its name won’t even make it into this Wrap due to weekend travel, but it’s perfect. I’m in a couple of places about this 10K, which I signed up for even when I was feeling meh about the ten […]


TOTR: New Balance Bronx 10M Recap and Learning on the Run

I love Tuesdays on the Run. And I love having the “cheat sheet” of the topics early so I can get these written at the weekend. But this week I’m using TOTR for my Bronx 10M recap, which I briefly touched on in the Wrap.Ā  Linking up with: Erika at MCM Mama, Marcia at Marcia’s […]


September Home Stretch

But I would walk 500 miles and I would walk 500 more. Just to be the man who walks a thousand miles to fall down at your door. I love Shorewalkers, they got me exploring Manhattan when I couldn’t do the Saunter, and I’ve done part of the Saunter twice. Shorewalkers’ founder Cy Adler died […]
