Socially Solo

I never thought of running as a social activity. That was one of the things that drew me to it in the first place. I’ve never been much of a team player and would gladly take a term paper over a group project any day. (more…)

Cold

I’m still here! January’s been a busy month and I’ve been rather distracted, but more on that later. For now, here is a life update. (more…)

Sophomore Slump

We all know about the proverbial sophomore slump. Downton Abbey’s 2nd season wasn’t nearly as good as the first. Mumford & Sons much-anticipated 2nd album failed to live up to the hype. Most people agree that “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” (the 2nd book) was the worst in the HP series. And let’s not even talk about The Matrix. Or worse, Star Wars. (more…)

Who’d have thought? (more…)

Attitude Adjustment

I am a runner.

Those aren’t particularly easy words for me to type as I don’t really believe them.

See it. Hear it. Smell it.

I ran 8.5 miles on Saturday. Without stopping or walking (aside from quick water breaks whenever I passed a fountain). 8.5!

Had someone told me 3 months ago that by August I’d be able to run 8.5 miles, I would have laughed at them. Yet on Saturday, that is exactly what I did. And you know what’s more? It felt good. I felt like I could’ve kept going. I didn’t because my training schedule has me increasing my mileage by 10% each week to prevent injury. But I’m not worried about the 9 miles I have to run this weekend. Or the 11 miles I have to run next weekend. Or the 13.1 miles I have to run on September 16. For the first time, I’m confident that I really can do this. (more…)

Heat Wave

It’s hot.

Too hot to cook. Too hot to run. Too hot to take pictures (well, too hot to haul my camera around). Too hot to think. And, therefore, too hot to write. (more…)
