words from the "running" desk

Shortly after my daughter was born, I registered for a clinic to learn how to run. I’m not fast, but I’ve run about 8,500 klicks in the last nine years… and written a whole lot more words about it.

Commuting by Feets: Season Three

It’s the last Friday in April and before I start work for the day I thought I’d note that I’ll be ending it by pulling on a pair of sneakers, meeting up with my partner in crime near her office, and starting the latest season of the Commuter Runs. I think this is the third summer? I packed light for my day, left all the unnecessaries at home, hopped a bus (coincidentally joined by another runner, one of the new folks who also works downtown and who expressed an interest in the commuter run club) and made my way to the office. When the day ends, I’ll slip into my gear, leave my civvies under my desk (to be brought home on Monday) and boot up the Garmin. Sixteen klicks of post-work, pre-weekend run-bliss await. But now I’d better go earn it. (Well, as soon as I finish my coffee.)

I figure that posterity is the prism through which I can bend my perspective into something worth looking at.

Two Strides Forward… One Back

Things were going pretty good for a week there. I fit in six runs over eight days. I pulled off a couple solo jaunts. I did a nice long fifteen klick tour with the crew. And I even did another (more) successful tempo. And then my sinuses decided that they hadn’t been infected in a while so promptly filled up with snot and left me in a cottonheaded daze on the couch for four days. Day five I played it safe and took an extra day of “I don’t trust you sinuses” rest, and now on day six I’m hoping I strong enough to get back into the rhythm. Lost… almost a whole week of training on a short schedule. Drat!

Or, maybe I shouldn’t have had spicy chicken for lunch.

I frequently seek some balance and clarity in various thought-out methods of my own.

This winter I'm going to hope that I can give that title to my super-grippy running shoes. Though if I actually didn't need them because the streets are clear that would be ok, too.

You put your heart into something like a marathon whether you intend to or not.
