Flat As a Pancake

Posted by:

Pancake Nice work today as Jeannine Bardo dominated the 45-59 AG, and Michael Borden finished strong at the Flat As a Pancake tri.  In addition, due to injury (and by design) Lauren Dewey dropped out after the ride, but was well on her way to a strong race. 

More results tomorrow.

NSTB100 History

Posted by:

Now that we've completed four of these stupid things, I was trying to keep track of who has ridden when.  Here's what I remember.

2009 is unfortunately fresh in our memories.  Wet and gritty.  Leanne, Gary, Michael and I finished the full 100

2008 had great weather and big crowds in the park.  It was also our fastest NSTB100.  Leanne, Johanna, Jeannine,
Killer, Tom, Shane, Ari Maisonave, Larry Lewis, and I finished on the
lead lap

2007 was wet ...

NSTB100 v4.0

Posted by:

Jonathan: I hate myself right now
Group: Take a number

That pretty much sums up No Sleep ’til Brooklyn version four.  We assembled at Ride Brooklyn and then at the park at 7p.  The lineup was Shane, Michael, Leanne, Geoff, Gary, Tom and yours truly.  Tom pulled us for most of the first two hours or so, as we got thoroughly soaked.  Pete from RB joined us for several laps and Scott arrived fresh from the Mt. Washington road ...

And You Thought I Was Rough

Posted by:

Fuck yoga Last night I had a brief conversation with a friend about yoga.  I half-jokingly said that I prefer exercise, and she looked at me as if I had just said that I hate puppies and rainbows.  (She then made some valid points in defense of yoga.) In truth, I do feel that some yoga practices are unsafe, and that there is ...

Flex This

Posted by:

As I was flipping channels from TMZ to The Real Housewives of New Jersey (I love the way they tawk), I accidentally stumbled upon CNN.  Some talking head said something about a senator "flexing his political muscle".  Since I obviously have no concern for national politics, you're probably wondering why this caught my attention.  Because you can't flex a muscle.  You contract a muscle, and you flex a joint.  I suppose Mr. TV Guy can be forgiven, but if you ...

And the Winner Is

Posted by:

Pool-1 Earlier this week we announced the Name This Race contest to rename the Dash and Splash.  Aside from my well documented gripes with the NYRR, I think the reason why I enjoyed this so much is that it reminded me of my days back at the Bronx High School of Science.  (Yes – they let me in, no – they didn't make an error ...

Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain

Pay No Attention to the Man Behind the Curtain

As I mentioned yesterday, the good folks at New York Road Runners have on more than one occasion caused my hair to hurt.  Though they’re not as consistent in their ability to agitate me, the paper of record – the New York Times – is doing their best.  They’ve gotten me with ridiculous hyperbole in articles suggesting that the average gym denizen and casual runners need to worry about overtraining.  They’ve gotten me with the inability to understand research methods ...
