    It's Derby Day in KY, also known as the first day when it's safe to plant your tomatoes. But for me, it's now remembered as the day when I ran my one and only sub-7 minute mile in the middle of a...

    A few years ago I pestered my church to put in a bike rack, and it's gotten a decent amount of use. Mostly during the week, with folks coming to AA meetings or art...

    You're doing great, Oak! hang in there...

    My race Saturday was tough. I'm used to running exclusively on pavement, so a cross-country is out of my comfort zone. And the pollen was fierce: by 3k...

    I've run every day of April, so far, despite the pollen count. Outside in shorts, even! Yesterday was only 1.5 miles, as the pollen was especially bad on that route. Now I remember why I don't run...

    Moses usually greets me at the door, and he'll follow visitors around the house, growling. Very dog-like. And Joe has taken to hissing at the mailman lately.

    Looks like a treadmill week-- 3 miles yesterday (it was 22F) 3 miles today (heavy snow falling); tomorrow's going to be frigid, so treadmill again. Sigh. At least on the treadmill I'm not planning...

    Ditto, Catrin. A dusting of snow this time of year is not that unusual, but this is more than a dusting. And we're headed down to 15F tonight. GRRRRR. The good news is that the pollen count is...

    Well, the race wasn't fast but it's done. With how little I've been running and the rising pollen count I set a modest goal averaging a sub-9 min mile, and did. Barely. It was a very small field...

    Yesterday I ran a route I rarely use, due to the hellacious 1st mile. Mostly uphill to one degree or another, with a short steep downhill thrown in for variety. The reward is that the 2nd mile is a...

    I haven't managed to run since Saturday-- but that was March! It was a busy day and I'd overslept, so I only got in 5 miles, outside on a beautiful morning. Sunday it was raining, Monday snowing,...

    Back to the treadmill yet again. It was plenty warm (50F) and all the snow and ice has melted, but the wind's howling. It would have built character to run outside in that, but that's not on the...

    I've run 2 days in a row! 1.5 miles yesterday (doing strength training first was really dumb) and 3 miles today. It's a start. And the snow and ice ought to be melting over the next week, so I'll...
