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.

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.

...there were a lot of clever options for names for a run like this morning.
Part of me says a Triathlon, but everyone I know who's gone over hasn't come back. They're all hooked. And bikes are expensive.

There's a selfie you've probably seen of me chomping on my finisher medal a few seconds after finishing the NYC Marathon in Central Park. That one.

Running Update

I’ll be taking a few days off. My body has finally given up: I pushed myself a little too far while doing some of the renovation work over the weekend and despite running a full and a half marathon, travelling to both ends of the continent, fighting off numerous proto-infections that threatened to derail everything, and doing dozens of hours of manual labour over the last two weeks while never taking a single minute more off of work, that part where I reached above the stove to adjust some venting was the metaphorical straw that broke… well, actually MY back. I’ve been sidelined and I think it’s my cue to take some down time for a couple weeks. When I can actually walk again without slouching in subtle pain, maybe I’ll do some short, slow runs, but until then…

It turned out to be about ten klicks down to the bridge and back...
Between marathon training and kicking off a major renovation project, probably the "sleep" icon... if only I could actually click it.
