Re: What Not to Do

Funny - I'm increasing my mileage from the crap that was this winter, but I think I'm doing it judiciously. I also changed shoes, from the Brooks Beast to the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14 ... actually had the guys at the shoe store put a camera on me and [more]

Against all odds, I had a good race. And a really great experience.

Re: Wolves Change Rivers!

Also, "the basic premise" is that the "deer" changed the rivers by their browsing habits and the presence or absence of wolves changed the browsing habits of the "deer". More bull pucky.

Re: Don't do this....

That's about as dumb a statement as any I've ever seen.

Holy crap, yes.

February 12, 1809

Today happens to be my birthday. That is only an ancillary point, but it may help set up where I’m coming from here.

RR: Freezer Fives 5K

New race report up. Though it is mentioned in there, a point that I feel is particularly relevant to this forum is the extension of the streak to its 12th month. Somehow I've been able to string together a full year running a race in each month. It [more]

Pulling the Plug

Today I changed my registration from the marathon to the half-marathon at the Rock and Roll USA event in March. This does not make me happy, but I'm not ready and I'm going to wait until I'm ready.
