Nowhere To Run

I woke from a dream, startled and out of breath. Beads of sweat were pasted to my forehead. I couldn’t see a damn thing. The room was black and statuesque. Not even the neighboring cicadas were whimpering into the void. Only the patter of stray raindrops broke the silence. Reaching […]

Your Southern Hemisphere Deserves Better Underwear

I guess the logical question I need to ask myself now is, how in the hell did I manage to run 600 miles in 2015 in cotton underwear? The moisture, the chaffing, the horror. Trying to put them on now feels like affixing a burlap sack to my, well, you […]

Hinky Pinks On The Long Drive Home

We drove out to Detroit this past weekend to run the Hockeytown 5K, traveling roughly 1100 miles in our Kia Sportage to run/walk 3.1 on the streets along the Detroit River and atop the ice of Joe Louis Arena. Yes, I fully realize how nuts that sounds. But we weren’t […]

A Teary Eyed Family 5K in Hockeytown

Despite having run the distance hundreds of times (okay, maybe one hundred) I’ve never once done so officially; with safety pins affixed, an assigned number, other runners in front of and behind me, or a time recorded anywhere but for an app on my phone. That all changes this Saturday […]

Running Smarty Towards #750in2015 + A SmartyPants Vitamin Giveaway

Everything hurts. I ran 7.15 miles last Wednesday, the furthest distance I’ve ever traveled in a single day, and as I sit here now, on May 4th, some 5 days later, every single. thing. still. hurts. My fingers ache, which obviously makes no sense at all. All ten toes are […]

Living and Running in McFarland USA

I was on a blistering, personal best pace through the first 9 days of February, covering 33 miles in that short time before my body said, in no uncertain terms, like a baby swatting away a spoonful of pureed sweet potato, “enough.” Grand plans were hatched in my mind, ambitious […]
