Scary

I have this thing: apparently I like to scare myself. I jump into things and then figure out the how. I ran track for 3 weeks in the 8th grade and then decided I hated running. When I signed up for my first running event, it was only because my friend said it was doable… Continue reading Scary

Deep Images….with Jack Handy

You know that SNL sketch where the verbiage of a "deep thought" with the Jack Handy voice over lays out a bunch of nonsense? That plays out in my brain in real life whenever I am on a solo bike ride or run or walk with the dogs. I think my best deep thoughts while… Continue reading Deep Images….with Jack Handy

More Than Miles

Sometimes miles drag. It's impossible to push yourself out of the bed in the morning. Then there are those kind of runs. The ones that are etched in your memory as a really great run.

The Run That Wasn’t

I really REALLY do not like the treadmill. I often refer to it as the dreadmill. It's great for speed training and blah, blah, rains a lot, blah, blah, blah. I don't care. I like to feel the road (or dirt, or gravel, or grass) beneath my feet. Perhaps it's because I fell in love… Continue reading The Run That Wasn’t

The sun is back… and so is my sanity!

The sun decided to emerge today so without hesitation we loaded up and decided to hit the trail!! (Yes, it did take the usual half hour to get us dressed, peeing, and loaded up!) Yep, that's our version of sun-peeking thru the grey clouds! Basically - if its not raining, its considered "nice out". At… Continue reading The sun is back… and so is my sanity!
