Day two of the three sport weekend

Sunday, May 24, 2015      13 comments

Today I ran because my brother ran. In case ANYBODY missed it, he ran his first full marathon and I'll let him blog about the experience for himself. When I ran today, I didn't run anywhere near as far as he did, nor as fast, but something abo... Read more

Swam this morning... enjoyed it immensely. Swimming still remains the most wonderful combination of exercise and massage... probably because I'm a leisurely swimmer. I will have to pick it up a bit for the race day, come August, and I have tim... Read more

Got a phone call last night as I was getting ready for bed. The mythical son. Said he thought he might have overdone it. He was feeling so good during his run last night that he kept going, rather than turning back when he was supposed to. E... Read more

I noticed in yesterday's comments a lot of "hope I didn't offend", "it wasn't intended as advice"... sorry about that. Yesterday's blog must have come on a bit strong. No, I'm not offended when people offer what they have to offer... just obse... Read more

Always amazed by the number of "fixers" among us

Monday, May 18, 2015      23 comments

Ever notice when you blog a vent you get a whole lot of comments telling you how to fix your perceived problem. LOTS of advice. Some conflicting with other advice. If you don't want to hear the reaction, don't post about it, right? Which is ... Read more

The paralysis of indecision

Sunday, May 17, 2015      28 comments

Yesterday started out "woozy", and ended with my skipping the Wear Yellow Ride, even though my bike had been pre-packed in the car the night before. I didn't figure that feeling the way I did it would be safe to go on that ride. Which in t... Read more

A week and a half ago, I ran my fastest half marathon ever. And crossed the finish line. And physically recovered. BUT... There is something in my personality that struggles. Struggles with the images of success, especially. Struggles ... Read more

Now it's time to think about August 8th. Some folks asked what my next "epic" adventure was going to be... many long-term readers already know. On August 8th, I'll be competing in the National Age Group Olympic distance triathlon. The Oly... Read more

Missed my Spark start Anniversary

Wednesday, May 06, 2015      25 comments

I do this every year... I'm generally so busy in May that it slides by unnoticed. May 2, 2008, according to Spark's reckoning, I joined I lost a weekend in the richness of the site, then fled in terror of how big it was! ... Read more

One more Lincoln Marathon blog - the after effects

Tuesday, May 05, 2015      20 comments

The hugs at the finish line for Micah happened very close to the time that the awards ceremony was to begin, over at the Champions club, across the street from the stadium. I had been to the club once before, for some management group's motivat... Read more

Statistic: 2000 people volunteer to make this event happen, every year. I met one of this year's volunteers (I was one of them last year) at the expo on Saturday. He had run the event multiple times, and never volunteered until this year. I ... Read more
