Back to running and riding in the rain and cold

My weekend was a bit shorter than most, as I spent the first 30 hours of it working my way home.  I had left Sydney around 3PM on Friday, and with some delays in Hong Kong I didn’t end up … Read More Here

A flooded run and some brotherly love with new incoming gear

I arrived back from my US work trip into Paris on Friday evening.  This would give me just about 15 hours until my brother landed here, following me across the pond.  The two of us will be spending the next … Read More Here

Running past topless demonstrators–and other antics from my weekend

This weekend was a bit of a hodgepodge of things, everything from touristy sight-seeing, to running in new places, to writing lots (and I mean LOTS) of product review content for stuff coming up – much of which is tied … Read More Here

Point to point long runs and unpacking the LeMond Revolution Trainer

Sunday I had my weekly long run, which this week stood at 15 miles, though, by next week it’ll be up to 18 miles.  I’m still trying to figure out how I got conned into my long run changing from … Read More Here

Fun with Fartleks

The last few weeks The Girl and I have been enjoying the unstructured yet structured offseason running.  What do I mean by that?  Well, we’ve got a slew of runs to do weekly, a healthy mix with a long run, … Read More Here

A 16-mile Wednesday night of loops in the rain

There are some nights and workouts where all you can do is just shake your head, tie up your shoes…and get on with it. Tonight was one of those nights. On the schedule was mile repeats…twelve of them.  That’s in … Read More Here

How to effectively pace and route your running race

It’s September.  Which means that all (ok, probably just many) of you are preparing to run some sort of race.  Perhaps you’ve already run a shorter race this season on the way to that goal.  For me, my main race … Read More Here

Running from the floodwaters

Over the course of the day I watched from my home office window as the river across the street delivered all manner of items downstream. Garbage, soccer balls, tree trunks the length of school busses, entire 10’ trees standing upright … Read More Here

Search for the Eastern Passage

Monday night when I stepped out of my door shortly after 5PM to start my long run, I simply stood there for probably a good 30 seconds…just trying to figure out which way I would run.  Some days I’m feelin’ … Read More Here

The India Runaround

With my work completed yesterday (Thursday), I had the morning in Delhi to do as I saw fit before my flight later this afternoon.  I initially thought I might go do some touristy stuff, but after it was found out … Read More Here

Running in the night

(Side note: Some really cool and interesting comments and ideas were posted yesterday onto the Boston Marathon analysis post that I put together – definitely a lot of great discussion about whether or not to solve the problem, and tons … Read More Here

An awesome training weekend here in DC

This past weekend has been both crazy busy – but also amazingly productive!  While it’s not over here in the US (we get three days!), I’m going to recap two thirds of it, and save you from hearing about my … Read More Here

Averting disaster in the Dark Hills

Anytime you have 2-3 hours of workouts to do on a weeknight, you have to plan a bit.  Most of that planning for me falls into two buckets – scheduling of the actual workout itself, and scheduling my caloric intake … Read More Here

101 Runs on the Wall

This weekend turned out to be pretty darn busy, lots of running, running around, and everything in between. It started early Saturday morning with a run with the Pacers group.  The plan was 10 miles easy, but somewhere along the … Read More Here

A list of cool tri/running/cycling wallpapers

Back a bit ago I was stumbling around Garmin’s site trying to find something or other and I bumped into their nifty collection of wallpapers that you can download.  From there I got curious and started poking around other companies … Read More Here

Someone left a floater

Due to a flip-flop in the weekly schedule of runs, both the Girl and I were in position to be able to enjoy a nice 10 mile run with our friends on Saturday morning.  Normally the 10m run run occurs … Read More Here

A hill workout in the snow

Yesterday evening, with yet another impending snowstorm I had a decision to make – try and drive to an open treadmill, or tough it out on the snow covered hills for my weekly hill repeats.  On one hand I have … Read More Here

A snowy food filled weekend

Let’s just get right into the action, by starting where I left off on Friday evening as nightfall fell (hmm…does that mean it fell twice?) – it looked like this: While the snow was starting to fall, the Girl got … Read More Here

Me and the clock…and cupcakes.

Let’s be honest, for any competitor, it’s all about the clock – even when racing against others, you’re still racing against the clock.  But, over the past few months the clock has played a new role in my workouts – … Read More Here

Tuesday Tidbits

Lacking the time or thought capabilities to put together a solid and lengthy post, I present you many little tidbits… Garmin FR-60: I can’t remember if I mentioned this or not, but Garmin sent me out a FR-60 running/cycling watch … Read More Here

Friday Mail Call

I got all sorts of interesting things in the mail this week.  Both physical mail, as well as e-mail.  And I’m not just talking about the coupons either – we’re talking high quality stuff. First up was a little Christmas … Read More Here

Tidal Basin 3K Race Report: Things that hurt…a lot.

It seemed like a good idea yesterday. It did not seem like a good idea at mile 1. But first…let’s rewind to last year. Last December DC runner/blogger Peter was taunting me to show up at the monthly Tidal Basin … Read More Here

Jingle All the Way & Massive Cupcakes

This weekend was a hodgepodge of stuff.  Because I’m super-swamped in getting the final touches on the Garmin 500 review out (currently standing at 38 pages…), I’m gonna keep this weekend recap post nice and short with lots of pictures.  … Read More Here

Running in a Blizzard

It’s cold. Really really damn cold. It’s now Wednesday evening, and the weather has settled down a bit (though, not above 0*F).  But, it wasn’t always that way. (Regan National airport in DC, as I left Sunday night…my little plane … Read More Here

Wet and Snowy Saturday, Muddy Buddy Sunday

Since the weather first shifted towards snow on Saturday, I was pretty jazzed.  I like snow, lots of it.  And even though the Washington DC has no useful hills (Read: Nothing to ski down or chairs to ride back up), … Read More Here
