This Week in Runblogging: 4/14 to 4/20 2014


Another solid week of training in the books, and another 5K race completed (#2 of the year). The race was a bit of a surprise as I finished 50 seconds faster than I did in the 5K I ran two weeks ago, and was two seconds shy of a 5K PR – there’s something to […]

This Week in Runblogging: 4/7 to 4/13 2014


Last week seemed to herald the official arrival of Spring here in New Hampshire. Almost all of the snow has finally melted, the sun has been shining, and the trails have been muddy and wet rather than snowy and icy (great test for the Salomon Sense Pro’s that have been on my feet a lot […]

This Week in Runblogging: 3/31 to 4/6 2014


Had a great week last week! I got lots of writing done, met the beginner 5K group I’m co-coaching this Spring, and ran my first road 5K in over a year yesterday. I’d forgotten how good a hard-effort 5K race can make you feel! I finished second in my age group in the 5K and […]

Slomo: Do What You Want To

Slomo Video

My wife found the video below on the NY Times website this morning and shared it with me. Almost one year out from quitting my 10-year career as an academic to build a new career around my passion for running, this speaks to me on so many levels. Do want you want to. Don’t be […]

This Week in Runblogging: 3/24 to 3/30 2014


It’s been a bit of a crazy week off the blog for me (taxes and Taekwondo!), so less time to write than I had hoped. I should be getting a few shoe reviews out next week (Skechers GoBionic 2, maybe a first impression post on the Altra The One2) if all goes well. Below are […]

This Week In Runblogging: 3/17-3/23 2014


As I hinted at last week, I think I’m going to make an effort to do a weekly roundup-style post. I may not get one done every week, but my goal going forward is to try to get something up every Sunday/Monday recapping things that I have read and/or written in the previous week. I’m […]

This Week in Runblogging 3/10-3/16: 5 Recommended Posts

via Nearly Shoeless

I spend a lot of time each week sifting through RSS feeds on Feedly, and I typically share a lot of posts on Twitter and Facebook. However, with Facebook seeming to be shaving away even more at the number of people who actually see fan/brand page updates, and Twitter kind of being hit or miss […]

More on Man Parts and Running

"I triple-dog dare you!"

I had no idea when I wrote my post yesterday on cold sensitivity in the man parts when wearing tights that it would be such a popular topic! In the past 24 hours the post has been viewed nearly 4000 times and has accumulated 91 comments and counting. Who knew! Well, it seems I’m not […]

Best Race Report Ever via The Oatmeal!

You may know Matthew Inman as a cartoonist who writes sometimes scathing, sometimes geeky, and often hysterical comics over at the popular site The Oatmeal. What I didn’t realize until last night is that Inman is also a pretty adept runner. I was searching for posts about ultramarathon shoes and came across a race report […]
