Price of Laziness: $2.75

this isn’t one of those esoteric, vague treatises on the price of laziness. This time, laziness has a pure cost: $2.75 An unlimited monthly metrocard costs $121 and works out to be a little more than forty rides a month. It usually makes sense for me due to meetings during the day that are too […]


Fascia fighting Friday

So I have two pair of running shoes. One that were new models of the regular sneakers I’ve been wearing forever (always preferred to walk in running shoes) and one I’ve been properly fit for. Any guesses as to which gives me fits? Yep, that would be the properly fitted (and prettier) ones. They first […]


Sunday Funday Rebound Runday

I (sort of) meant what I said when I didn’t care about yesterday’s time. I was more about the photos and the experience and in the humidity/with the stairs, walking was smart move. But it bothered me that the first mile was so slow when I was running. Today I was having a typical slug […]


RunTheYear / GoTheDist 2017 Halfway Point

Whooah, we’re half way there…Take my hand and we’ll make it, I swear…Livin’ on a prayer It seems like just yesterday I was setting my 2017 goals and now we’re at the year’s halfway mark. I thought I had a set mileage goal, but I had a 3.8m step goal (with 4m as stretch and […]


14,793

Mini update time. 14,793. That’s the average step count of my current 31 day Fitbit goal streak that dates back to March 15, the day after a snow day.  I hadn’t realized the streak was so long and only went back to count when I realized I crossed 75K in this week’s Workweek challenge and […]


March 2017: I ran away from “I can’t”

yep. That’s what happens when #GoTheDist meets #RunTheYear/#RunWithJoy Earlier this month I said: “I’m taking a run at my Q1 2016 goal. Probably impossible, but worth a try.” My Q1 2016 total? 1,008,946 My Q1 2017 total? 1,064,082 That is my best quarter, narrowly topping Q2 2016‘s 1,059,278. I also said: “Why is this still […]


40,000 steps

In. One. Day. It’s not my personal best. That honor still goes to the Saunter. But it’s my best since that day and was also a product of Shorewalkers. The thing I’m most proud about? Nearly 6 of these miles were after I bailed on the official walk. Anyway… I’ve had a thing for bridges […]


#GoTheDist: February 2016

Much like I had a mega day in January 2016 and February 2015, I had one in February 2016. A 30K day, to be exact. That helped me counter a few lower days and one 1500 step day (sick day). Thanks to that day, February went gangbusters. February 2016 totals: 313,153 steps 128.84 miles walked […]


#GoTheDist 2016

wasn’t I just writing out the goals for 2015? For more reasons than this challenge, this year has gone by in a flash. It’s somewhat bizarre to be writing up 2016 goals before wrapping 2015 but a) I’m traveling for the next two days and b) I’ve already been overthinking 2016 way too much. I […]


#GoTheDist 4.1

While I finished the month strong-ish, it wasn’t quite enough to hit my September goals.   292,984 steps walked 120.4 miles walked If I’d realized I was that close I’d have taken 16 more steps for 293K. I actually realized about midway through the month that 300K wasn’t happening but, when I came home from […]
