10 days of holiday. Well, 12 days if you count traveling. 12 days of no impact, no working out (well maybe a couple yoga classes), no running, weight lifting, kicking, punching, or going 100 miles per hour.

I’m also more likely to get my butt out of bed to run if I know there is an impending race deadline. This holiday, I’m taking a break. A much needed respite from … Continue reading Taking it easy

Take a moment today to send thoughts of hope and healing to Boston for those affected by the explosions. An event like a marathon should be a place for celebration, victory, and joy, not tragedy.
80 degrees and sunny today. Instead of writing a blog post, I am going to: GO OUTSIDE. I suggest you do the same. If your weather is not as accommodating, I'm sorry. Check back with me in 3 months and you won't be jealous anymore. GO OUTSIDE ANYWAY.
