Off to the Races

Or, more accurately, back to the races. After taking a pretty significant break from racing—and running in general; apparently, I've become quite the fairweather runner in my "old age"—I got right back into the swing of things last Friday with the NHTI Delta Dental 5K in Concord. And when I say I got right back into... Continue Reading →

Racing Don’ts (and one Do)

In case you didn't know, New Hampshire has kind of a big drug problem these days. So when Mama Reven sent me an email about a trail race in my hometown that was raising money to help fight the statewide heroin issue, it seemed like a good idea.

I responded in what felt like the most appropriate way possible: a half-assed attempt at pretending it had... Continue Reading →

Better late than never

I had nearly given up on the idea of ever writing this post. But in the airport bar prior to our flight home from Colorado, I accidentally crossed the oh-so-delicate line between alcohol-induced, sleep-like-a-baby bliss and oh-my-god-will-i-ever-sleep-again agony. This led to me reading all the running magazines I had in my backpack, which then led... Continue Reading →
