Dopey Challenge 2017: Day 1

Dopey Challenge 2017: Day 1

I headed to Orlando as has become my norm on the earliest JetBlue flight of the day from Washington to Orlando on Tuesday. I used to work a full day and then take an evening flight on Tuesday but since I started doing the Dopey Challenge, I’ve grown to really love being able to have … Continue reading

Dopey Challenge 2017: Day 2

The expo has slowly become less and less fun over the years. Personally, I’ve gotten to a point where I really like to relax on vacation and not feel rushed and crowded and the expo has gone from leisurely shopping experience and sample pick up to “get me the fuck out of here as soon … Continue reading

Dopey Challenge 2017

That’s right, bitches, I’m a PERFECT DOPEY ’cause I’m too legit, too legit to quit. Mostly, I’m too stubborn to not have legacy status in something at this point. Like Elaine with her Atomic Subs card, I just want the free sub, quality be damned. I didn’t have a lot of running work put in … Continue reading

Forgetting the Burn

You know, it’s easy to forget a lot of things about running. This weekend, I did the Navy Air Force Half Marathon again because I can roll out of bed, walk to the start 5 minutes before the race starts, and then saunter back home and promptly pass out. I’m surprised this race hasn’t taken … Continue reading

Once Upon a Time… I could run.

You know how there’s that myth that if you go like a year or something without sex you become a virgin again? Well, I’m 99.9% certain that that’s a load of crap but I’ll tell you this: you go 2 months without running a lot and you become like a person who’s never run before. … Continue reading

I’m Back (Kinda)

I’ve been dead and buried for a few months and now I’m clawing my way back to the surface and I’m hungry for brains. Not really but you get the idea. It was really nice not training for a marathon this summer. I enjoyed unplugging from a lot of things, like this little blog here. … Continue reading

Gracious Losing

I may never be able to teach you how to be a gracious winner, but if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the last 30 years of living it’s how to be a gracious loser–fake it til you make it, people. Don’t throw/kick/punch anything or anyone. This one’s a dead giveaway. Assaulting stuff is also … Continue reading

The Sound of Silence

I kinda haven’t been running at all, really. The last week or so has consisted of doing something I haven’t done in a long time: binge reading. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Red Queen, and Haunting of Hill House. Growing up, I was 100% the kid who … Continue reading

Adult Conversations

There’s nothing nicer than that moment when you get excited for summer and start thinking about all those fun summer adventures you could go on, kind of like Now and Then or something. And then you remember that what summer actually means for you now that you work full time is that you’ll be the … Continue reading

Superhero Half Marathon 2016

The Superhero half was my first ever half marathon and at the time, I loved it. I dressed up as Sailor Moon after spending a lot of time on my costume and there were a lot of other people out wearing costumes. I have really good memories of it, so every year when they did … Continue reading
