Dopey runDisney

runDisney came to their senses if you will and decided to adjust their packet pick up policy. More specifically, they fixed it so that the policy that was clearly stated on the registration page when you signed up will be the policy you have to abide by for that race. The Avengers 1/2 will be … Continue reading

don’t let your boobs hit you in the face

don’t let your boobs hit you in the face

The occasionally good weather means there’s a dramatic influx of people out running and I’ve noticed one something deeply troubling so far: some of the women who are out running… Well… Ouch. I don’t mean this to be creepy/pervy, but some of these women their boobs are moving so much I just can’t imagine how … Continue reading

running buddies

I know people love running with other people. They find it really great, and they love to socialize and I won’t deny that the one 18 miler I did during the summer where I actually had a running buddy was the most fun. I would love to run with other people. I think it would … Continue reading

One word became my rallying cry this week. It was not good and I was not sufficiently rallied. Funny thing about running, I’m not really reliable. Much like my personality, my pace is unpredictable and influenced by a myriad of known and unknown factors. It’s gotten to the point where I can’t predict who’s going … Continue reading

10 Days of the Cherry Blossom 10 Miler

I don’t know if you know this, but Cherry Blossoms are kind of a big deal around here. You know it’s a big deal because we put it on everything regardless of whether or not it’s seasonally appropriate and Metro actually makes an effort to be functional this time of year, so you know, big … Continue reading

Fall Marathons

Once upon a time, this was when everyone I knew was freaking out about what college they would attend in the fall and thinking about getting in and getting acceptance letters, or rejection letters, and what was their back up plan if they didn’t get into Princeton blah blah blah. Now, it’s kinda the same … Continue reading
