NYRR 9+1: Pride Run

NYRR 9+1: Pride Run

So far, I haven’t done any new NYRR races for my 9+1 this year. I had the brilliant idea last year of doing every race between March and May and kind of hating myself for it, so this time I spaced them out and my work schedule meant I could make the Pride Run at … Continue reading

In It For The Rainbows

Funny story. You know how people sign up for races supporting all kinds of causes? I’ve done races to “save the parks,” “celebrate Israel,” “fight cancer,” and “end domestic violence.” No one ever asked me if I was a conservationist, a Zionist, afflicted with cancer, or in an abusive relationship. I did the UAE healthy … Continue reading

Pink Elephant Guide to the World Cup

Every few years, the world gets all excited over the World Cup. Unlike the World Series, which is really just the United States, the World Cup actually involves other countries. And because it’s apparently a sport that people actually watch unlike the hodgepodge of random sports that constitute the Olympics, people get really into it. … Continue reading

Disney’s Dumbest Prince: An Ode to Prince Eric

Disney’s Dumbest Prince: An Ode to Prince Eric

Prince Eric is hands down the dumbest Disney Prince. In fact, Eric might arguably be one of the dumbest Disney characters and that’s saying a lot because there are some really dumb characters out there. The guy is strictly eye candy and nothing more, okay, there’s no substance behind the blue eyes. You might not … Continue reading

The Disney Prince

We often talk about the Disney Princesses and how god damn stupid they can be wanting to marry some guy they just met, but let’s take a second and shift our attention to the princes. Looking at them over time, I think it becomes clear that they become more complex over time and in a … Continue reading

Summer Running Tips

Summer Running Tips

1. Noon is the best time to run. Some people say you should go early in the morning or late at night, I think those people are cowards and aren’t dedicated to running. You go out when it’s the hottest out and then you can brag to everyone else about how badass you are. “Oh, … Continue reading

Don’t worry, culture’s overrated

Consider this a new segment: Making You Feel Better About You I was at happy hour this past week with the people I work with and we have a new arrival who just moved to DC so naturally everyone was giving her suggestions about fun things to do in the area. The suggestions included: The … Continue reading

Run Less. That Works.

Run Less. That Works.

“Man has a dream, and that’s the start…” And then he starts to follow his dream and realizes how bad an idea that was. There are currently two things dominating my thoughts: that I need to start getting ready for fall marathon training and that I am going through Disney withdrawal big time. Nothing goes … Continue reading

May-Bia I’m not happy with it?

May-Bia I’m not happy with it?

I’ve been running watchless lately because it’s become kind of a new mission in life for me (plus it’s so damn hot I need another thing making me feel like shit on a run like I need another hole in my head). But I’ve been trying out my Bia watch and uh… Well… Let’s just … Continue reading

My BICYCLE

My BICYCLE

I did it. I bought a bike. I’m actually really, really happy with it despite a few Fraternal Schwinns moments. Saturday morning I headed to District Hardware/The Bike Shop. It’s a combination hardware store and bicycle shop but more for bike repairs than sales. Neil is the guy who runs the bike part and his … Continue reading
