The word makes me cringe. I run – I don’t jog – I never have. I used to run 11 min miles – I ran then walked – ran then walked – never jogged. I think whatever pace you run you are still running unless of course you are speed walking or power walking but […]

There would be paths in every town longer than a mile or two. There would be more water fountains. I would plants more trees. I would outlaw concrete sidewalks and make them something a little more knee friendly. I would mandate bike lanes in all new development. I would give tickets to people who honk […]

I love a good contest! Winning ‘free’ stuff is one of my all time favorite things. Some say this makes me cheap – I say it makes me up for a good non running challenge every now and then. My love of contests started when I actually won one. I didn’t usually enter things because […]

I ran the Rock the House 8K in Fairfax this past Sunday in an attempt to break my old 8K PR. I was pretty sure based on how I have been running recently that I could do it. I set a layer of goals for myself – that way I’d be happy no matter what. […]
