Running to the Château with new gadgets and muscle oxygen monitoring

I got home around 11PM Friday night, from a week split between the UK and Finland.  Stepping off the plane from Finland was almost identical to stepping off the plane in the Caribbean.  While the temperature was only about 50*F … Read More Here

A short weekend at home testing action cams…in the rain.

Ahh yes, with October behind us the last tattered threads of summer weather are most definitely gone.  Welcome the rain. And the cold. And the wind. All at once. Nonstop. The other problem is lack of sunlight.  Not because I … Read More Here

Running a lot so I can justify going to the Parisian Chocolate Fair

Somehow in the crazy-busy last few days in getting a slew of product reviews published I didn’t quite get to talk about my weekend at the chocolate fair.  Obviously, that’s a problem.  Anytime I skip out on talking about chocolate … Read More Here

Running my way to Château de Versailles

When it comes to races, it’s always highly advantageous to be able to pre-run or pre-ride the course ahead of time, especially if you don’t live in Florida where everything is pancake flat. In this case, I’d be running the … Read More Here

Running Hill Repeats Into The Night

I’ve decided that anytime my coach sends over a map it always ends poorly for my legs.  In kind of a mad scientist sort of way he sent over an e-mail a few days ago proposing a workout based on … Read More Here

Coming to Paris this summer? Here’s where to swim/bike/run!

This post is a quickie!  More FYI-esque than anything else. I’ve always had a Washington DC resources page that listed all the places I swam/biked/ran within Washington DC including my favorite routes.  It was sorta a one-stop-shop when people asked … Read More Here
