    Darien 5 Miles - Welcome Back, Baby!

    Welp, that's going to require therapy in 30 years. Great RR. Welcome back!

    But wait! What do I see? Is she walking out on me?

    Irma Gerd Redux

    I've been taking a similar approach, but outdoors. I have a 3/4 mile loop on a street block that circles a park and a church just down the street from my house. I've done most of my weekday tempo and repeat runs there, just running around and around and around, thinking that the tedium will help me out in the race.

    Sore, flat, broke, but it's going to be ok

    Those trails look great. And don't sweat school. I bet you'll find that you're better prepared for it now than you were when you last attended.

    Definitely LSD. Already thinking about those first runs post-marathon, when I can go back to allowing my thoughts to wander off wherever they want to go.
  6. I've watched it at least 10 times now and forwarded it to friends. I've backed up the video about 15 seconds to watch that guy come around the corner. I love everything about it. The music. The guy standing at the finish line. The timing chip making the computer beep nonstop while he finishes up. But my favorite part is when he loses it 4 feet from the finish line, and then walks it in.

    Storm Before the Storm

    Well this post is a good start to the writing part. I hope you find your way. (And I'm pleased to see that I'm not the only one who sees nothing wrong with drinking beer in the shower.)

    Mt Washington run 2018

    Don't be too disappointed. You've accomplished something that required a lot of effort on a very difficult course. Every time a read about this race I think it would be fun to try. And then I drive past Mt. Washington on my way to Maine, and I think, no thanks.
  9. His name is RunRalphEat. Nice race, though. It's hard going from running for fun to running with a goal in mind.

    Table Rock Trail Challenge

    What a cool format. Nice job on 19 loops! I think I would be a mental wreck by the end, since I'm not a fan of intervals with time recoveries, rather than distance recoveries. Two minutes go by way too fast for my liking.

    Battle of Short Hill Sprints

    I noticed that, too. There was battle there, too, in February 1777. It has the (un?)fortunate name of the Battle of Spanktown. It was an American victory, so yay for us?

    Battle of Short Hill Sprints

    Nah. She can be kinda stingy with her baked goods. I feel like, if I were Cornwallis, I would have said, "Love. Fear. Whatever. I just want some bread." And then I would have taken the bread. I'd like to think I would have offered to pay for it, though.

    Battle of Short Hill Sprints

    I had some hill sprints on tap today, which seems fitting since it's the 241st anniversary of our local Revolutionary battle, the Battle of Short Hills. On June 26, 1777, a sweltering day according to reports, General Howe of the British army attempted to lure George Washington out of his defensive position in the Watchung Mountains, and force a final battle in the American Revolution. Howe was met by the Continental Army under Lord Stirling in a running skirmish that focused on a swampy area about 2 miles from my house. A 1777 map of the area shows the short hill where I did my workout. Prior to the hill sprints, I had a 5-mile run on tap, so I decided to head past Betty Frazee's house and down the road taken by the British army as it marched back to Perth Amboy after failing to catch out General Washington. There are still a few houses on that road that were there in 1777, and the swamp still borders the road in places, but at 5:45 this morning, the only people I saw were runners and bike riders, and they didn't seem to be in a fighting mood.

    Self-diagnosis: Popliteus Injury

    I'm hearing Hank Hill's voice in a lot of this. Except for the running-related stuff. That's for hippies.

    Leadville Heavy Half Race Report

    I'd be worried if you WERE'NT sore after that up and down.
