January 2021 – A Year Unto Itself

Okay…January 2021 has been a year in and of itself!  Between an attempted insurrection, wondering if the inauguration would happen peacefully or otherwise, and another impeachment. Add in it being the height of a pandemic, then on a more personal note-another running related injury to my right foot.  Nothing important happened in January 2021. Do you detect just a hint of sarcasm?  You betcha! It … Continue reading January 2021 – A Year Unto Itself

Snow Makes for Beautiful Scenery-RunLog 1/28/21

I got to run today. It has been one of those weird days, where it snowed almost all day, but no real accumulation. Well, just enough to coat the road in places and be wet in others. The temp was right around thirty degrees, with just a bit of breeze out of the north. In other words, decent conditions for the end of January. Since … Continue reading Snow Makes for Beautiful Scenery-RunLog 1/28/21

Yeah, it was damn cold out, and that wind from the Northwest sure … Continue reading Cold, Icy and Experimenting – RunLog 1/23/21

Exhale and Breathe – RunLog 1/20/21

Exhale. Breathe. Look forward. I think most readers understand and may even share my feelings today. With the inauguration, it does not mean that all of our problems suddenly disappear or are solved. They aren’t. It does means that we will be looking at many problems we face from a different perspective. I will not lose track of what is occurring in our Country. But … Continue reading Exhale and Breathe – RunLog 1/20/21

Central Maine Striders January Thaw 2021 Virtual Race – 1/17/21

Central Maine Striders January Thaw Virtual Race – 1/17/21 I got to run today and even did one of those “wonderful” virtual races that I so “love”. Oh well, it seems that if I want to race the annual Central Maine Striders January Thaw Road Race in 2021, it will have to be virtual. Since I am not injured this year and attempt to run … Continue reading Central Maine Striders January Thaw 2021 Virtual Race – 1/17/21
