um, where is summer going?


July came in like a furnace with heat indices over 100 and ended with a 60 degree morning run, and no I’m not in Stowe (yet). This won’t last, but I treasured it on Saturday. I won’t miss the summer heat, but there’s something carefree about summer, even amid COVID-19 that I will miss. There […]

Jumping into July


That’s all I have to say about the weather, especially as I’m quite lucky compared to those in the Pacific North West. It was miserable here, but not unsafe. To those of you who can run happily in this, more power to you. While I quit chasing steps, I still log them. Here’s where I […]

I ran 790.67 miles on the year and ran/walked 2072.49. Really proud of both of those. […]
