it may or may not be May


did someone ask Mother Nature what month it was? As I think I mentioned here a few weeks ago, my neighbors are suing one another and the landlord suing them for one’s refusal to stop smoking cigarettes and other substances in her apartment. I think she let Mother Nature into her wacky weed stash. There […]

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 […]

Walking through MLB history and listening to my body, week of 7.23

April is already 5K-palooza as it’s theoretically spring. I’ve done the March of Dimes Walk every year and in various years have walked […]

Training, week of 1.7


I already talked about how I marked my one year running anniversary. How did I mark the first half of the week after my running anniversary? Injured. I actually don’t think it was Saturday’s 7.77 miles so much as the 1.3 mile warmup on Friday in bad shoes. Luckily, it doesn’t appear to be a […]
