Wednesday, October 24, 2012     

I was unable to register for the Marine Corps Marathon and really and truly I am happy that I did not. I don't really want to run another marathon ... at least not until I decide to be totally foolish again. What I do plan on is going to W... Read more
Bike Kit Fails and the Word Mangina
Tuesday, October 23, 2012     

A bike kit is that uniform that bike teams wear. You can buy them even if you don't belong to the team. I bet you can get US Postal Service or Discovery Channel kits for really cheap right now. (Hint: think Lance Armstrong). A mangina is ..... Read more
Time to stop griping.
Monday, October 22, 2012     

Over the last three days I did a lot of griping about bad runs, bad luck, bad timing causing me to miss out on my workouts. This morning, well, last night I decided I had to get going again. I set my clock to 0500. Ugh! Even in August it w... Read more
No swim today because of bad timing
Sunday, October 21, 2012     

After Mass this morning I tried to stop at the YMCA for a swim. But there was only disappointment. What I used to do was this: She(WMBO) likes the quiet Mass, so she went to the 7:00 Mass. I agree with St Augustine, for whom our parish is n... Read more

Can Exercise Make Us Smarter?
Thursday, October 18, 2012     

These days, intelligence isn’t just a product of late-night study sessions or listening to Rosetta Stone on repeat. It turns out there’s also a convincing link between exercise and cognitive function, which could motivate people to hit the gym t... Read more
Yoga: First time for everything.
Wednesday, October 17, 2012     

I was going to run to the YMCA this morning, but it was really dark! I know it happens every year at this time, but ... It was *really* dark! I am always amused by people who are taken off guard by how early it gets dark when we change... Read more
Motivational Poster: Do what you love
Wednesday, October 17, 2012     

I have told many people who have asked me what they should do to run a marathon. On of the first things I tell them is "You have to love it. If you don't love running, set some other goal." I watched the baseball game tonight ... Tigers bea... Read more

It's like riding a bicycle ....
Sunday, October 14, 2012     

I was sitting around this afternoon watching TV. No, not football. That game drives me crazy. It's a game with four 15 minute quarters that takes three and a half hours. Good grief! What are they doing all that time! So not football. Just m... Read more

Saturday, October 13, 2012     

I read PASTAFARIAN's report of the Baltimore Half from last year and I wondered why his varied so much from my own experience so much. He reported what I would call attention to details that may have been simply volunteers not doing it right. I ... Read more
