First run in 61 days!

Been a short while since I last posted and the “radio silence” will probably continue into next week. With that in mind, here is a post from my IG account yesterday on my first run in 61 days!

5 for Friday: A Coaching Revival

The right of passage for a young hockey player and his parents is the ability to survive a super cold rink with cold windy drafts and uncomfortable seats throughout, very easily on a Sunday morning. I used to go through this ritual with my father at the crack of dawn on the weekends, trudging out…

“Weight!” Is it really all about Running?

“Among competing hypothesis, the one with the fewest assumptions should be selected.” — Ockham’s Razor I posted this quote a few days ago pointing out that while I can research to the high heavens why my back hurts (as if someone is putting kneedles into it or my knees ache like someone has been hitting…

Gear Review: Comfortably Compressed

Over the past month, my running life has been “on hold” as I rehab from…well, unsure specifically of the problem because I could make a case for a hamstring issue, a calf strain or even issues with my back as a result of the work that has been ongoing at PT. During this same time…

5 for Friday: Limbo

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns OR rejoice because thorn bushes have roses             — Abraham Lincoln I have proclaimed more than a few times over the past month that I will be “Thinking Positive in 2017!” No matter what happens to me, I will remain positive this…

One more week of rest and hopefully I am ready to go! I posted the following over at my Instagram account earlier today  I have an appointment tonight…

Happy New Year!

It was an incomplete year of running for me as I missed my running goal but 2017 will be a new start for me and for everyone who has set new goals. Good luck to Everyone and Happy New Year! Thank you for reading my notes, worries, concerns and triumphs this year! Hopefully I can…

Run Pics of the Week

Grasp the subject, the words will follow                                   – Cato the Elder Well, heading into today I did not think I would be able to run given the snow and ice that is all over the place locally…wrong! Got…

Dangerous Games with Cookies and Snacks!
