MOBYCARP and his daughter arrived safely, and we went grocery shopping so I have ENOUGH in the house of the right fuel for our marathoner in training. Since he eats pretty similarly to how I do when I'm cooking for myself, we've been swapping t... Read more

I sometimes quip that I am the Imelda Marcos of running shoes. But the closet in my house is not as big as at the presidential palace in the Philippines. So a few of my ... Read more

Frank, meet Frank. One of my little old lady whimsy habits is to name my gear. Last Summer when I did my first Olympic Tri, I decided I'd call my running shoes all "Frank... Read more

Contentment is not the same as complacency. Take "content" and move it into something that sounds like it in Spanish or Italian (contento), translate back, and it comes out "happy". Cue the old joke about translating: "The spirit is willing b... Read more

I had an 8 mile group run scheduled this morning, but I pretty much ran it solo... my pace was all over the place. It was a little chilly but warming with the sun. The plan was run at 7, change and get myself to a meeting point, and bike ride ... Read more

So many supportive comments from folks who don't even know me! And some who know me only through my blogs. And some who actually *do* know me in person. I really, really appreciate the collective wisdom and sharing on yesterday's "No need to ... Read more
