Cutting Back & Moving Forward – Week In Review October 25, 2020

Finally, a week when I am just about back to my normal of running. The ribs are still tender, if I do too much, but don’t bother while running — as long as I stay upright or don’t run into things when I am not paying attention. 😉 It is starting to get colder up here and I am wearing winter hat and gloves for … Continue reading Cutting Back & Moving Forward – Week In Review October 25, 2020

I Am Tired

I don’t know about you, but I am tired. Tired of the constant vitriol we are seeing on television, the Internet, the ads we find in our mailboxes, people’s lawns or so it seems wherever we happen to be or whatever it is we are looking at. Yes, it is mostly the political nonsense that is going on around the United States now. The need … Continue reading I Am Tired

One of Those Miserable Runs – RunLog October 22,2020

Sometimes you just don’t really feel like running! Today was that kind of day. Why? I don’t have a clue, the weather was just about perfect, low 50s, a bit of a breeze out of the North, some nice sunshine and I just didn’t feel like running. Shorts weather in late October, no complaints about the weather. So, I procrastinated at the dining room table, … Continue reading One of Those Miserable Runs – RunLog October 22,2020

What is a life well lived?

What is your idea of a life well-lived? I am sure that it is not the same as mine. Although there will be areas where our interests, goals or even dreams overlap, or believe it or not are the same. Yet, even with the dramatic polarization in today’s world, the differences between us are not usually as great as some would have us believe. What … Continue reading What is a life well lived?

Finally, no Discomfort — RunLog 10-20-2020

I have been running fairly regularly, just not writing all that much about it. It is hard to write about running when the running is not as much fun as it is when there is discomfort from just breathing while running.  Finally, today was the first day that I ran without thinking about the cracked ribs and it even involved huffing and puffing up Philbrick … Continue reading Finally, no Discomfort — RunLog 10-20-2020

The Coddling of the American Mind – Book Review

I read The Coddling of the American Mind by Greg Lukianoff and Jonathan Haidt a few weeks ago and it helped put into words several things that I have been thinking about, but couldn’t quite wrap my head around. However, I also needed a few weeks to sort out a many things that the book made me think about and to completely re-write this post … Continue reading The Coddling of the American Mind – Book Review

Wildwood 4.0 Miler – RunLog October 15, 2020

Back to it again, after a couple of days off to repair some damage that a critter did to the underside of the house on Monday (which the ribs didn’t take kindly to). I didn’t feel comfortable running on Tuesday, then our road trip to Bryant Pond on Wednesday, I was ready to run today. The weather was perfect for a run and the ribs … Continue reading Wildwood 4.0 Miler – RunLog October 15, 2020
