10 Brutal Miles and Links to Check Out

I ran 10 miles in Florida this morning and it was brutal. It probably didn’t help that yesterday I had a couple of beers by the pool, some wine with dinner, and another glass while we stayed up playing “Mexican Train” last night. Anyone ever played this before? I just learned it yesterday. It’s fun […]

Weekly Recap and the Return of Humidity

I am so glad that I didn’t sign up for the Maryland Half Marathon, which was today. I haven’t felt at all like I was ready to race, and there was no reason to push it. Last year this race was on the first humid day of the season. The same went for today. After […]
