Since last May, I’ve been part of a Vistage group. It’s a group of professionals who serve as a accountability and development community. A facilitated peer group, if you will. At the beginning of the year, we set new strategic initiatives. Well, blah blah buzzword blah blah blah. We set goals. Many set a personal [...]
We don’t watch a ton of TV around our house. We don’t have cable and use Amazon Prime and Netflix as our providers, so we tend to get in a pattern of following a couple of shows through as many seasons as we have access to until we run out. Last night, I got to [...]
Around the turn of the year, I move my books read from the main page to a post so my ongoing list appears slightly less unweildy. It’s that time of year.
I’m always surprised when I learn that some people still read my blog posts. I started this habit of publicly accessible race reporting back when fewer people did it, which lent me more readership than the quality of reporting ever really warranted. Since I entered parentdom about 5 years ago (counting the fetal incubation period), the regularity [...]
I did this event a couple years ago. I was soooo much more fit then, so even with a 3 hour training run in my legs from the prior day, I still ran a highly respectable time. But that was 2010 and now it’s 2012, the year of inconsistent training. Hence this being called a [...]
OK, yes, it’s been 3 weeks since the event. The scoop is that I was able to get in enough long runs to finish the marathon at a pace faster than a training run, so that’s what I did. No PR attempts this year! Maybe I’ll be ready for some of that stuff in 2013.
I signed up for this race because it looked fun and I needed a 10-12 miler the week before the marathon anyway. So it’s singletrack. Whatevuh. Like I’m gonna turn my ankle or something? Oh, I did. It’s not bad though.
A big fascination for me is watching others grow and learn. This means that one of the greatest joys of being a parent for me is having a front-row seat to a small human undergoing physical, emotional and mental development in hyper-drive. These little ones are all at once unique individuals and mirrors of our traits and foibles. Remy’s [...]
Last weekend, I wrapped up three weekends in a row of racing. I hadn’t intended to race three weekends in a row. It just sort of happened.
Hey look! It’s round #, uh, I don’t know, in the series of signing up for races because team mates are doing them.
