i’ve been having a really weird week. after having spent last week upstate and rural new jersey, i returned to the city feeling a little out of step. i haven’t run since saturday’s trail run, but i have been staying fairly active.

judging a look by its runner

unawares i am

i find running-themed internet memes to be a little absurd, but sometimes they speak to me in ways that make me hate myself little.  for example, this particular meme got me wondering what i actually look likewhen i run. i guess it’s kind of like how people like looking at photos taken of them when they’re caught unawares.  i too want to see how i appear when i’m not trying to look…

i woke up this morning with a seed of an idea planted in my mind. i was going to run six miles–a nice, long run through pine bush’s pastoral landscape.  this kind of run is ideal since i prefer to run continuously and at a clip.  this is only possible outside of the city.  if i’m running in the city, you can bet on finding me waiting, visibly irritated at having to stop at one of the many…

mea culpa

to preface, i love running with todd.  when we’re out and about together, it feels like we’re on an adventure.  since we’re…
