U-S-A! U-S-A! My ITU Age Group Worlds Debut

Thursday, September 17th

2pm (EST): Get an email that all American Airline flights to and from Chicago have a ground stop as soon as Herb and I arrive at LGA.

10pm (CST): Inhale pulled pork, ...

How to Breathe (It’s a Secret)

Posted by:

I know this seems like a dumb topic for a blog. The short answer is that I inhale and exhale just like every other respirating organism on the planet.

It probably won’t surprise you that this method has to do with rhythm. Just like my post about Voodoo being the best album to run to of all time, I’d like to talk about a rhythmic approach to breathing. Most of you probably breathe with an even rhythm of inhaling and exhaling ...

Achieving Personal Best: Jeff Weinstein

“That deep practice concept is interesting. It describes my training process. I set a race date, set a goal time, see how close I come, and then move on to the next one. It can often be frustrating to fall short, but when you do hit your goals, it’s amazing. It’s important to set ambitious, but reasonable goals.”

While we have many talented athletes at The Dalton School (and a stunning number of those in Sin Quee/Neiers House—I’m just a little biased), ...

Two Days, Two 5K PR’s

Channeling Tom Brady

How Tom Brady can help you with delivery and recovery:

Know when to throw a lateral and when to go deep: If the goal is to score a touchdown, remember that you are concerned with forward movement, whether that movement occurs on the ground or in the air. They told me to push with all my might—think of this as the largest bowel movement. In retrospect, I think I was asking the doctors to go for the long pass. Not only ...
