Moving On

I’ve read a few race recaps from the Dark Side Challenge and apparently I’m the only person who enjoyed it. In some respects, though, I think the narrative regarding runDisney can be easily summed up as “moving on.” A lot of people started running around the same time I did, around 2012. It’s been theorized … Continue reading

Marine Corps Marathon 2016

They moved bib pick up for the Marine Corps Marathon from DC to National Harbor. I’m going to explain to you why this shit is fucked up. Bib pick up is normally in DC because this is, essentially, a DC race with brief sojourns in parts of Virginia where people say they live in DC … Continue reading

Just Floating This Out There…

runDisney Dark Side Challenge 10k Recap

I have heard a lot of interesting stories about inaugural races. Offhand, the only inaugural race I can remember doing is the Nike Women’s Half in DC.

In case you were wondering, they did not in fact include actual sex positions influenced by Star Wars. There … Continue reading

Dear Couch

Dear Couch, I don’t know why people think you’re so terrible. I’m not sure why you’re my guilty pleasure. When I combine you with a Law & Order marathon, it’s pure magic. Being outside for a run doesn’t make me dislike you, sofa, it makes me love that much more. It’s like how they say … Continue reading

On. Your. Left.

The soft, mushy feel of flower petals under my feet, grinding into the small rocks on the paved sidewalk. The blockade ahead: a large, slow moving group of tourists.

Dark Side Challenge: planning edition

The Dark Side Challenge was a last minute, fluke kind of a thing and aren’t those the best kinds of things? Fortunately, I’m a Disney professional so I could 100% handle the issues that come with planning a trip to Disney World on short notice. Don’t try this at home, kids, I know what I’m … Continue reading
