Coincidence or Irony?

It's freezing outside. I took a photo of the frozen grass but not quite sure I was able to convey the iciness of it. I mentioned I need to get back to running. You may have noticed we had some terrible air quality here in California this summer, thanks to crazy wildfires and a lack... Continue Reading →

Putting Things Off

Back on the second of November, I decided to "take a few days off" in the running arena. It was the day before the national elections and I felt like I needed a break. So I took one. And the one or two days I was going to take a break extended into about...oh, 27... Continue Reading →

Sometimes You Need a Break

This week I am focusing more on active minutes, such as standing and stepping. Stuff I can do indoors. We're going to take it easy this week. If I go outside (and I make a point of it), it won't be to any city centers anytime soon. Running is waiting for me, and I look... Continue Reading →

I needed to complete two runs by Sunday to stay on track with RunBet but the air and the heat this week have been unusually challenging. The sky has been red--the sun blocked by haze and smoke. I posted before and... Continue Reading →

The Heat is On!

So this morning, I opened the door to check the local temperature and possibly open windows to air out the house. It's already 82 degrees. At just barely 6 AM. It's dark outside, and it feels like the dark hell you experience on Mr. Toad's Wild Ride. I didn't find that part entertaining, and I... Continue Reading →

It’s just a few words

I live in a great neighborhood. I laced up for my 5th run of the week and headed out. I was running on the street, crossing intersections. Usually there’s not much traffic but today there were a few folks turning left in front of me. An old battered truck not using a turn signal. And... Continue Reading →

Keep at it

Some days you run strong, and some days you just run and hope you get your minimums done. I got my minimums today. #KeepOnRunnin
