Our haul from an hour of Geo-caching.

At a recent meeting of Tampa Bay area bloggers, I was introduced to Geo-caching. That night, I downloaded an app for my phone and (accompanied by Alice‘s birthday party-goers) found my first cache just over a quarter mile from my home. It occurred to me at some point that Geo-caching might be a fun exercise… Continue reading Runcaching

New York City Half Marathon

Not running it….but if you want to, the Fresh Air fund still has some spots available for runners on the Fresh Air Fund-Racers team. The Fresh Air Fund provides runners with guaranteed entry in exchange for fundraising before race day. Over the past four years as a NY Road Runners charity partner for the NYC… Continue reading New York City Half Marathon

Ryan Hall

I usually don’t comment much on professional racing because I don’t really follow it all that much.  I do follow Ryan Hall on Twitter and I was surprised to see that he’s splitting with the Mammoth Track Club and Terrance Mahon.  From his explanation, it certainly sounds like he’s going solo and it’s not exactly… Continue reading Ryan Hall

Get in the Kitchen Bit@es!

Sometimes there are perks to being a running blogger.  Lindsay gets Sugoi gear and Gu after all.  I’m not quite so lucky, but I was fortunate enough to receive a copy of Get in the Kitchen Bit@es signed by author Jason Bailin.  While I haven’t enjoyed it quite as much any novel I’ve ever read,… Continue reading Get in the Kitchen Bit@es!

The Human Bug Zapper

I often talk about how flat Florida can be, but I rarely talk about how buggy it can be sometimes. Monday afternoon was one of those times. So, I’ll illustrate with a photo Friday:

New York City Half Marathon

No.  I”m not running it. I did receive word, however, that the Fresh Air fund is still looking for runners and sponsors to join the Fresh Air fund racers for the New York City half marathon on August 16th.  Since 1877, The Fresh Air Fund has provided free summer experiences in the country to almost 2… Continue reading New York City Half Marathon

Keeping the streak alive

Today’s workout mirrored last week’s 1200 m intervals.  The only differences were that I’m doing more mileage this week, so that meant 4 intervals instead of 3 and a new VDOT, so the pace was faster.  It was about 50 degrees this morning, so I donned two long sleeve running shirts, a stocking cap and… Continue reading Keeping the streak alive

Wrapping up the week

I waited out this morning’s rain, feeling quite sorry for those who were running the Gasparilla half marathon and full marathon.  Congrats to Denise for sticking it out in the full marathon despite high winds and rain to beat her Disney time and to Deb and Kim who finished their first half marathon.  I ran… Continue reading Wrapping up the week
