Slush

Posted by:

Slushbody_jpg_w300h450So, I've mentioned before that I run to and from swim practice in the morning.  This gives me a couple of easy extra miles, but it's also the easiest way to get there since there is no direct train or bus.  I can run there in less than twenty minutes but it takes close to 40 taking the subway and walking.  Anyway, I was ...

It Feels Sooo Good To Be Back

Posted by:

Mm

It feels sooo good to be baaack.  I do feel like I'm back.  I'm not fully ramped up training yet but I kicked the sciatica with the help of some Dr. Sarno.  Either he's right or he's a placebo.  In either case, I don't care!  Nothing else worked.  That book did.  On Wednesday I ran to master swim at too-early-in-the-morning and got there early!  ...

Doug Stern Open Water Swim Camp 2011

Posted by:

Rainbow

We have just returned from the annual Doug Stern Curacao Open Water Swim Camp. My body is still trying to recover from the shock of a 70-degree temperature shift, the stunning inefficiency of the Miami Internation Airport, and the disappointment (but not shock) of finding that my bicycle is still somewhere between here and MIA. Still, as usual it was a great ...

Cheaters’ Hall of Fame – New Member

Posted by:

I pride myself on my tenacity. I have spent inappropriately long periods of time researching cheaters out of nothing more than a healthy combination of OCD and an overly developed sense of right and wrong. But whomever is behing the Study of Kip Litton Running has put me to shame. Seems that the aforementioned Mr. Litton is a “runner” from Michigan with what, at first glance, appears to be an impressive resume. Sadly, while he may be a ...

Happy Holiday

History will have to record that the greatest tragedy of this period of social transition was not the strident clamor of the bad people, but the appalling silence of the good people. -Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Disney Marathon Race Report – Starkes Returns

Posted by:

Disney-marathonKevin Starkes made his stealthy return to racing today during a weekend trip to Florida for the Disney Marathon. Kevin went to the happiest place on earth and ran a 2:47:10 in his comeback. Kevin hit the halfway point in 1:24:30 and then accelerated for a 1:22:40 on the second half, so clearly there's plenty more to come. 

Congratulations Kevin.

Maybe He Doesn’t Like Rainbows or Puppies Either

Puppies-n-rainbows

If you gave something away for free, you'd think that it would be hard for people to complain. You'd think wrong.

Look no further than the recent Christmas Marathon held Van Cortlandt Park. One blogger voiced objections to some aspects of the free event. Having just run in their snowy, and very fun New Year's Day race, I feel compelled to defend the organizers ...
