I did not think it was possible to deliver any WORSE weather for running in than that for last year's version of the State Farm 10 mile. However, after gathering my gear, and driving to the site... walking from the car to the port-a-johns and b... Read more

Here I am, at Friday. Hourly weather forecast is saying low 40's, rain, and a 17 mph wind. Brrrr! I have my bib number, and packet pick up for the State Farm 10 mile tomorrow is this afternoon. Monitoring the body, trying to listen carefully... Read more

when I hit the "Post" button, it never made it to published status. Don't know as I could re-create it at this point in the day, but it was a pretty mundane thing, ticking off the things I've done this week to support my on-going healthy habits... Read more

It had been three weeks since I last went for a run. All that illness intervened, and I was determined to fully recover. Thursday was my first day with no headaches and no pills to suppress them. Friday I did my first strength training. I ne... Read more
Marching with the Madness

Oh, yes, it is that time of year, when those of us who are fond of a particular sport go a bit crazy as 64 teams shrink themselves down to the "final four". I don't fill out a bracket every year, and I certainly don't handicap 'em like my son d... Read more

No free lunch

Yesterday after work I was half-listening to the TV while some ad blared about "free" this or that. Yeah, free... for only $29.95 a month. When I was young I encountered an acronym in a science fiction novel... I think it was Robert Hein... Read more

As the cabbage soup simmers
Sunday, March 12, 2017      28 comments

Sunday is the classic soup making day, for me. I chop up what's available, simmer and stir and let it sit on low for quite some time, filling the house with scrumptious aromas. Yes, I am feeling better today, not that I didn't have a bit... Read more

I posted my status this morning that I was glad it was a weekend. I am. Because I'm still not "myself"... I'm done with the antibiotics, but still woke up with splitting head this morning. Had breakfast and a headache pill, ended up putting m... Read more
