2019 Goals

  As has become custom, I’m writing up my 2019 goals before I’ve hit my 2018 totals. Prior Goals: 2018 2017 2016 2015 2014 2013, subsequently revised As I mentioned somewhere, I’m simplifying them. Last year was way too crazy and ultimately frustrating. So building on what I started: Running Mark two years running in […]


Dancing into December

why am I dancing? PTO is in sight. I love what I do, but I am in dire need of a vacation and I can almost taste it. By the time this is published, I will be officially off work. Anyone else have massive issues with the WordPress “upgrade”? I had to enable the classic […]


Running without music and Run to Lose, week of 9.9

My TomTom has been having sporadic GPS issues of late that seem to be getting worse. The battery isn’t lasting as long as it used to either. It owes me nothing, it’s a hand me down that I’ve had for a year and a half, and its previous owner had it about a year. It’s […]


#GoTheDist, August 2018

Weird week. The heat was a lot of it. As much as I enjoy being active and found myself missing running, it was easy to not because it was just so hot. Think that was why eating was off – but tracked. Also, two really late nights (i.e. get home, go to sleep) wore me […]


London Calling, weeks of 8.12, 8.19

So London was meant to be part of an organized runcation, but that didn’t get the minimum number of people to go forward. By the time it was cancelled I already had the time off work and the itch to go to London for the first time in 17 years-not counting a layover 11 years […]


2018 Goals

Like 2017, I’m setting goals for 2018 before 2017 is done. I’m a little nervous about December, but I’ve made my peace with falling slightly below goal as I will far exceed December 2016 and that’s what this is all about. More on December later. Thanks to this little adventure of running, 2017’s goals have […]


November 2017: Go Big or Go Home

November, you were brilliant. Last November my step total was 320,610. 2017? 468,583 steps 206.13 miles run/walked Most mileage since August and one of only three (April) to cross 200. April was 465,416 steps and August was the inSANE 503K. Month didn’t even feel that heavy. What am I most impressed with besides completing #RunTheYear? […]


#GoTheDist: October 2017

Where did 2017 go? Wasn’t I just setting goals? October 445,034 steps 191.77 miles run/walked 36.54 miles run (27:37 average run time, 11:17 average pace) Year to Date 4,220,892 steps 1820.25 miles run/walked 350.87 miles run I feel like all of those need and warrant exclamation points. 2,017 miles is definitely going to happen and […]


Food logs can talk

I wanted to run yesterday but as I was at the office until nearly 9 PM, that didn’t happen. Walking home also didn’t happen so my fitbit goal streak ended at 41 days (longest, I think). I was OK with that. Truly. I needed a day off after barely scraping by to goal a few […]


Running and Steps

Last Tuesday my hip began to whinge on a short pre-work run and I wondered why. Nothing had been particularly strenuous or beyond my normal. On the return leg of a run cut short, I realized I’d accidentally run five days in a row. Oops, my feet feel so much better in good shoes that […]
