A Bit Overwhelmed But Still Running – RunLog May 31, 2020

I am seeing some pushback on Twitter and Facebook about those of us who are continuing to Tweet or post elsewhere and we are not talking about Presidential Tweeting, murder in the streets, riots, racism, politics, pandemic response, economic disaster, police (for and against)e, facemasks and all the other crises of the present hour. I am not burying my head in the sand about what … Continue reading A Bit Overwhelmed But Still Running – RunLog May 31, 2020

The Sun Came Out & Kicked My Butt – RunLog May 29, 2020

I wasn’t even sure that I would run today. For the second time since we went into Can’t Go Any Where Mode we ate something other than homemade. We ordered Mexican and the SDs were kind enough to go pick it up. Not sure if it was the food or the end of whatever bug I have been near the end of for the past … Continue reading The Sun Came Out & Kicked My Butt – RunLog May 29, 2020

Last Run in GlideRides for a While – RunLog May 28, 2020

After yesterday’s run, the GlideRides have over 200 miles on them and since I have been having increasing issues with my ankles every time I wear them. Therefore, I have decided to put the GlideRides in the back of the garage for a month or two to see if the ankle issues clear up. Then decide what to do with them at that time. You … Continue reading Last Run in GlideRides for a While – RunLog May 28, 2020

ASICS GlideRide – 200 Mile Review – Not What I Expected

The ASICS GlideRide is probably the closest I will get to a super shoe this year and it is one that is becoming a bit of an enigma for me. As I go over 200 miles in them, they are showing a bit of a split personality. The first 175 miles or so, I was in love with the GlideRides. They were doing everything that … Continue reading ASICS GlideRide – 200 Mile Review – Not What I Expected

Mosquitoes and Humidity – RunLog May 27, 2020

Okay, the mosquitoes have hatched around us and the dragonflies have not, so for a while the little winged terrors have unmatched superiority of the skies. Nasty little buggers they are too this year. However, with the high humidity (for Maine) when you swat one on an exposed skin part, it stays there as a trophy to your skill as a mosquito hunter, to go … Continue reading Mosquitoes and Humidity – RunLog May 27, 2020

Memorial Day, Overcast & Breezy – RunLog May 25, 2020

May everyone be safe and remember Memorial Day as something more than a day to party hearty. Remember those who have served and especially those who did not come home alive to their families and friends. They and their families paid the ultimate sacrifice. Writing about my running on Memorial Day feels kind of awkward in some ways because it would not seem to many … Continue reading Memorial Day, Overcast & Breezy – RunLog May 25, 2020

Comfortable Philbrick Laps – RunLog May 24, 2020

Today’s run was just going to be a comfortable 4-5 miles, but I really didn’t want to deal with the rocks down-back or having to come back up Philbrick Hill this morning. Since we still are not going anywhere if we don’t have to, that left running laps on Philbrick. Repetitive, but better than some of the alternatives. 1.0 – 8:59 / Started out pretty … Continue reading Comfortable Philbrick Laps – RunLog May 24, 2020

Beacons and Middle Road – RunLog May 23, 2020

Sometimes you get just a bit behind and unfocused. That was me last yesterday, I couldn’t focus on reading, writing or much of anything that was brain powered. Which means this morning I get to write about yesterday’s run. Joy of Joys – right. ๐Ÿ™‚ I planned on the Middle Road Loop at a comfortable pace, but I did want to see if wearing my … Continue reading Beacons and Middle Road – RunLog May 23, 2020
