  • On Running Everyday

    Yesterday was a tough one. Monday night, the little dude refused to sleep.  He woke up at midnight, and again at three, and again at four thirty.  Object permanence, they say.

  • Friday Inspiration: More Run Streakers

    Still thinking about running streaks, still working on my own (3 days!).   Here’s a couple fo videos of people who’ve been at it a bit longer: Charles Holmberg who, when they filmed this cheesy short for a local TV station had also been at it for thirty years.

  • Training Totals for 3.21.10

    RECAP: The Good –Beautiful weekend here in the nation’s capital. I did a twelve mile long run this Saturday in under two hours. I felt strong throughout and think that I’ll probably be using cliff shot blocks as my on the run nutrition from here on out. The Bad – While my running was strong […]
