Fabulous Fall Fun


Mom found the pic on the left on her phone, which sort of inspired the one on the right. We’re guessing it was from summer 2007 just before I chopped my hair for Locks of Love, although it was reddish by the time I cut it.  I miss the braids, but can’t fathom growing it […]

hello fall


I love you. You’re my favorite season. Actually I love spring too, but fewer allergies give the nod to fall. And what comes after fall? Quilt season! Well, my apartment is so toasty it’s never truly quilt season, but I can’t wait to wrap up in this near the window while I read. So many […]

getting to the CORE of it


I’ve been struggling with blog titles lately but this one wrote itself when Kim pinged a few of us about Matty Maggiacomo’s SUMMER CRUNCH challenge. I got a little out of my strength training routine with a few too many excuses, so this is the perfect re-set. So far so good a week in. This […]

re-integrating running into life, #20BooksOfSummer


that title sounds so dramatic, which it isn’t meant to be, but not sure how else to phrase it. As we move back toward normalcy, whatever that means, post covid-19, the weekend of May 15-16 was my first chance to look at how to integrate my covid running routine with “real life”. I knew that […]

WordPress needs a time out


ERROR: please fill the required fields (name, email). That has been the story of my life. At first, just on my laptop in Firefox. Then at work too in Chrome. Bizarrely I have no idea what broke as I removed the only new plugin I’d tried recently.  So I’m either logged out and commenting with […]

Dashing through December with Jingle Bells


Where on earth did this month go? How is it already Christmas week? Apologies for a comments blitz of late. I’m trying desperately to catch up. One of these days I’ll either put email on my phone or figure out how to blog. Not gonna happen. It’s not even technically winter yet as I type […]

Ted Corbitt 2019


Original post title: Trying not to run on caffeine and sugar. That was before this became a pointless weekly run down due to a wonderfully crazy work week. My office has our annual gala on Monday and I wear a lot of hats for that. On the plus side, I made relatively good decisions for […]

Tuesday Topics: Rogue Running and group marathon training


My original plan for NYC Marathon training wasn’t group training, nor was it JackRabbit’s Rogue Running.  I realized early on that a DIY approach probably wasn’t going to work for me, and soon after that my Mile High Run Club idea wouldn’t either. Linking up with Kim and Zenaida this Tuesday Topics to talk about […]

The amazing running community


All of you. Everyone I’ve met over the last nearly three years. Everyone I’ve run with since beginning training in June. There isn’t much substance to this weekly run down as I was somewhat down with a cold throughout the week. But I’m not dwelling on that – I want to focus on Saturday’s route […]

Runfessions: NYC Marathon edition


It’s that time of the month. Linking up with Marcia and everyone else for Runfessions: NYC Marathon edition. Like I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I’m really enjoying marathon training. It’s for some of the same reasons Kim mentioned.  I have learned so much about what my body can do since I started running. But I […]
