RR: Shoreline Half Marathon

The Shoreline Multisport Festival is a two-day affair, with a half marathon, 5K, and kids' race today and a Duathlon and Triathlon tomorrow. I'm an indifferent cyclist and a slow swimmer, so I did the half today.

We had thunderstorms in the [more]

Re: What I spent/saved today

I appreciate the dialogue about the burger costing more than $17 because it's $17 less than I have to put towards debt. I need to think about every spending decision this way.

It's good that you're thinking this way now. When you do [more]

Re: Speaking of paperwork*

I've been looking at pay-as-you-go just because I'd heard they were cheaper; they probably are if you are used to buying phones - and I am not, since I usually get the el-cheapo "free with contract" and run it past contract time, lather [more]

Boston Registration Dates Announced

The news is a bit old, as the dates were announced on July 1; but I didn't look until this week.

Re: An Open Letter

May the day come when all children, whether biracial or not, simply see that as a pretty flag with no political overtones. Not in my lifetime, but perhaps some day . . .

Re: Struggling with sugars.

It seems in the guidelines that milk sugars are not exempt from the count like sugars from (fresh) fruits & veggies.

That doesn't make a lot of sense to me. I can understand a philosophy that says, added sugars should be avoided [more]

Re: Struggling with sugars.

I originally had my sugar goal set as less than 10% of total calories per the gov't dietary guidelines. Once I account for sugars from fresh fruit & veggies, this number is achievable. Now the sugar percentage of calories has been changed to [more]

Re: Things I am currently struggling with

1) Eating a healthy breakfast.

No suggestions. This is pretty easy for me, except when I run short of time and grudgingly back down from steel cut oats to rolled oats.

2) Paperwork. I am absolutely drowning in it [more]

Roth Conversions and Distributions after 59 1/2

I established a Roth IRA with a contribution the first year it was available (1998?). I recently achieved the age of 59 1/2. My understanding is that now any distribution I take would be a qualified distribution, not subject to federal income [more]

Re: An Open Letter

It's all in the perspective. When I turned 40, I got a card that said, "Don't worry, in 10 short years you'll be 50 and 40 will seem young!" I saw a similar card for 50 year olds in the store.

Now, I'm 59 with a birthday in [more]

Re: For 4,327th time

I don't understand the attraction of "pick it up at the store.

Re: The Real Runners

One of the coaches in my running group said that anyone who gets up on Saturday morning at 6AM to do 15/18/20 miles in the rain is a runner. Even if they walk.

I'd have to agree with that coach, though the only Saturday I ran 18 miles [more]

Re: Well, Poop.

Bummer. I find it frustrating to sit on the bench when injury prevents me from running; I have a hard time imagining the level of frustration that would be for a kid with limited life experience.
