2012 Cape Cod Ragnar Relay

Runner #2, Robin draws the halibut on van #1

It’s difficult to write about a Ragnar Relay without writing a whole novel so I won’t try to describe everything that happened in minute detail. The 2012 Cape Cod Ragnar Relay was my 6th Ragnar Relay, my 5th as a team captain and my 4th as a runner. Going in, I was a little worried… Continue reading 2012 Cape Cod Ragnar Relay

Running the Cape

Most people who regularly read this blog know that (among other things) I’ve been spending the last year putting together teams of complete strangers to run Ragnar Relays.

Going Granola

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

Saucony Kinvara 3

A few weeks ago, I returned to the office after a vacation on the beach and found a package sitting on my desk. I practically jumped out of my shoes when I opened the box to find this: My love of the Saucony Kinvara has been well documented. I regularly run in two pairs of… Continue reading Saucony Kinvara 3

Week in Review: April 2-8, 2012

It’s been a long time since I’ve done a “week in review” post mostly because I haven’t had a whole lot to report. I’ll admit that there’s not a whole lot to report this week either, but I have started things up again: Monday: 3 miles easy Tuesday: 5 miles easy Wednesday: Off Thursday: Off… Continue reading Week in Review: April 2-8, 2012
