For many years, I maintained an active livejournal account. I met a number of wonderful people through that website, and had a lot of great conversations, but much of writing was (like ti is here) quick and dirty. The few things I thought were worth keeping I’ve moved over into something I’m calling the Livejournal Archive. You can see them here.
Perhaps the least read pages on this website are my weekly “Total” pages where I recap my exercise and reading. I get it, who the fuck care. But to me, its important to do these posts, to hold my at least somewhat accountable, to track weekly trends, to record for the world to see, when I do well and when I fail.

Back from a much needed break, and back to 100 days of Milo. For day 41, here’s one of the most popular pages on the website, my collection of links and resources about Divine Madness, a religious/spiritual community /cult with a serious interest in ultra-running. Over the years, I’ve received emails and phone calls from many people who were associated with the group and I’ll update this page with information garnered through those conversations in the near future.

On occasion, I write short profiles of Running heroes, legends of the sport who inspire the rest of us to get out on the roads and trails and explore. Those posts are collected here. Check ’em out.
As the Boston Qualifier Questionnaire continues to grow, I’m trying to find ways to make the database more useful. With that in mind, I’ve broken out individual pages for the Male and Female responses. You can still find a complete list of every response here, and of course the spreadsheet is probably the easiest way to look at this information. You can find it here.
I’ve had a number of short run streaks throughout my running career, but none of them have really stuck. Still, I’m fascinated by those runners able to stick it out, getting in a mile year after year. Here’s a resource page about some of the most impressive
As regular readers of this site might know, I’m what they call a “jew by choice” or, in the parlance, a Ger. It’s a bit of a strange place to be and I’m fascinated by the stories of other people who’ve also decided to convert to Judaism. On this page, I collect short pieces on interesting people who decided to convert. Check it out:
