I hate that bathroom scale. Why do I even have it when it only infuriates and berates and depresses me? A heating pad provided some solace and recovery for whatever the hell I did to my hamstring. However, I’m still opting to skip the run today, hoping against hope that such a decision will benefit […]
Sheesh. That’s not a price change… that’s highway robbery.
I’m worried about injuries. That’s what you say when you’re trying to keep up with a sports conversation but have no idea what sport or what teams are being discussed or anything at all. It’s a safe comment, shows you’re engaged but you aren’t really. A radio DJ once waxed poetic about this conversational dodge […]
Recovery-ish run from a sleep deprived food jag. Better than nothing I suppose… but the bathroom scale says I should’ve gone longer. A post trip funk has settled in. No time for feeling down though; the Jacksonville Marathon is in less than 72 hours.
Somewhere over the continental USA… It’s a good thing I double checked my dates. Turns out my last marathon of 2017 is Saturday and not Sunday like I’d been thinking. It’s another repeated event, this time in Jacksonville. They claim to have one of the fastest courses in the USA. We will see if I […]
A red-eye flight back to the mainland beckons tonight. But in the meantime, here are a series of photos that I never quite figured out where to put in the previous blog posts. Most are from the past 24-48 hours but there are a few earlier ones too. Some are even animated… rendered in my […]
It was a shoulder to the wheel kind of day. Something happened overnight and the dial on the humidity meter got cranked up a few notches. In fact, as night gave way to morning, the humidity hit 100% because it started to rain. Just as the sun was rising, the rains came with a chilly […]
A few weeks back I got an email from MarathonTours that promoted “the second inaugural Madagascar Marathon.” I’ve had some issues with MarathonTours, particularly with regards to the real inaugural Madagascar Marathon that I ran this year. So I was already predisposed to have issues with ANYTHING they sent out regarding it. But for the […]
I’m worried about the race on Sunday. I just don’t feel ready. I don’t feel prepared. I feel… nervous? Terrified, even. I’m sleeping terribly, which is par for the course for me for years now. But I’m waking up feeling restless, achy, even a bit more exhausted than when my head first hit the pillow. […]
Mom is doing her second Merrie Mile this weekend and we picked up her bib today. I failed to snap a photo — we’ll get one of her rockin’ her number on race day. But here’s her name in laptop lights! So come Saturday I’ll be cheering her on – I’m Karen’s Son, don’t cha […]
