Yesterday’s storm left the roads quite a mess this morning. There was lots of ice on the road, and the shoulders were barely walkable, much less runnable if I met traffic. Enough that, I wasn’t even thinking about running from the house this morning and thought running in Waterville would be a better option. Yeah, the roads were that bad. The temps were going up … Continue reading Something Different – RunLog 2/28/21
I forgot to finish this last night. I beat the worst of the snow yesterday, so that was a good thing! The roads were mostly wet while I was running, even though the snow was coming down pretty good during the run. Let’s get back to the beginning. I have been feeling “off” for a couple of weeks now, nothing overly serious, but not quite … Continue reading Didn’t Quite Beat the Snow – RunLog 2/27/21
Over the years I have had a LOT of computers. From a Commodore Vic 20 & 64 back in the dark ages, luggable portable computers, way too many Windows-based machines, original Apple Macintosh, MacBook Pros, MacBooks in the MLTI teaching project, and several Chromebooks. I even loaded Linux on more than a few my older computers when I got bored or was that adventurous, and … Continue reading Why a M1 MacBook Air?
Do I miss the treadmill? That is a question that I never thought would be an issue until the pandemic turned the world upside down and made going to the gym, not within the realm of possibilities for me. In a word. “Yes.” The treadmill and I have a great relationship. I appreciate the convenience and safety of running on a treadmill during the cold … Continue reading Do I miss the treadmill?
It has been a busy past three days! Tuesday I ran on Tuesday and dealt with the neighbors three dogs coming out at me. No, I didn’t get bit, but one got close enough by rushing at me to untie my shoelace by stepping on my foot, while attempting to bite me. I protected myself, and the dog backed off. The gray one came within … Continue reading A Busy Three Days
Two for the price of one, this time with this post. Yesterday I went to Augusta to run. It is something that I am doing at least once a week. To break up the monotony of running so much around the house over almost the past year. Yeah, it has nearly been a year since we put ourselves into lock-down. I drove over to Cony … Continue reading RunLog 2/21 & 2/22/21
I had planned to publish this yesterday, but I got distracted by playing a computer game and lost track of time, so here is the latest episode of Harold being Harold. I hope you chuckle a bit at my expense, shake your head at my stoopidity, and don’t do what I did. I didn’t run yesterday, even though I had planned to go into Augusta. … Continue reading Spilled Coffee Makes a Mess – RunLog 2/20/21
I want to make sure that everyone understands the following: My blog is my personal space, where I write how I want and do what makes my site, my site. So if you follow this blog hoping that I will automatically follow you back and increase your stats, I don’t. As a result of so many SPAM followers, I regularly go through my follower list … Continue reading Not Monetizing This Blog
We got lucky, and the Weatherman’s storm prediction for today stayed to the South of us. I am not complaining a bit. I like running on reasonably clear roads, especially when the temps are in the mid-’20s and not hovering around zero, which is a good thing. Today was all about getting out the door, running up to Goodhue Road, and getting back to the … Continue reading Boring is Good – RunLog 2/19/21
I have gotten tired of running on the local roads and needed an adventure of a sort. At the same time, I know that I need be careful with the temps and footing. Running the local hiking trails, even with ice grippers, is not my thing. Too many things can go wrong on those skinny single-track trails that I love so much, and many of … Continue reading Snowmobile Trail to Bartlett O/B 2/18/21
We were lucky and unlike so many places, didn’t lose power. Especially, those places that are not equipped, setup for, or used to having to deal with this nasty weather. I hope they get the power situation back online sooner and that life will get back to their normal. This weather certainly isn’t normal for those down South. Yesterday Yes, it was a snowblower workout … Continue reading It’s Better to Wait Until Later – RunLog 2/17/21
After yesterday’s run on the snowmobile trail and then this morning, Bennie making us walk up there again. The legs were feeling a bit tired. So I had zero illusions about doing anything other than enjoying a good run for a change. I figured that I would do an easy 5.0-miles on my Davis Drive course to work out all the sludge built up in … Continue reading Easy Run & Problem Solving – RunLog 2/15/21
