    In the Darkness

    It's possible that all of this is because August has been going on for about 47 years and counting.

    In the Darkness

    Beautifully written as usual and really spoke to me. I'm going through a lot of the same stuff: not enjoying the work, a lot of days of subpar results, feeling beaten down rather than built up, having trouble as I slog through the muggy morning miles - always without enough sleep - in coming up with a compelling reason why I'm doing this. Sure, I believe in the value of getting out of your comfort zone and testing yourself, driving yourself to be the best you can be. But after years and years of that on the pavement and trails, in pusuit of slight decreases in a set of arbitrary numbers, at a very significant opportunity cost (and monetary cost)... Well... There are other ways. Maybe my attitude will change with the weather. The next few days look great, just in time to see about pushing the tempo for a long run, and soon come the sweetest running weeks of the year. And maybe my attitude will change with a new pair of kicks from my new favorite shoe company. Or maybe not. Either way, after MCM there will be a few weeks of rest and reflection. Probably haul the camera out and try something different for a while. And that could very well launch me with renewed vigor into a new running cycle with a new goal. Or maybe not. It does not feel inevitable, or even close, as it once did. At least I'll have great shoes. Go find your happy place, Gonzo. May it reveal itself soon.

    Of course I ran.

    Crap. Now I'm convinced the same thing is awaiting me with my weekend yard work. THANKS A LOT, DAVE.

    Well, that didn't go as well as I'd hoped.

    Knees are stupid. So are PTs.

    never turn your back on a champagne cork

    Doesn't a coyote weigh like 30 lbs? Guess that's more than a champagne cork, though.

    Feel for you with what's coming! Glad you got a little time with your feet in the grass.

    'I Aint Scared'- The 3 x 1 Mile

    You're such a great writer. I mean, seriously, making me wish I could be out there with you guys, running mile repeats? That's powerful.

    Love that streetscape! Now I'm going to go listen to some Tom Waits.

    Snowbuster by the Bay

    Great RR! But to assure the win you should have put that picture on your back. I'm a Hansons guy but have been wondering about Pfitz. Interested in your thoughts.

    5K Snowbuster

    Saw a great meme about how this winter is like an angry, annoying guy who keeps leaving the room and then barging back in shouting, "And another thing...!"
