Thursday Thoughts: Deliciousness Edition

Thursday Thoughts: Deliciousness Edition I am not kidding you when I say that the burger in this photo (yes, there's a burger under all that mozzarella cheese and crispy onion straws - with spicy garlic mayo) is THE BEST hamburger I've ever eaten in my life.  I was literally sad to be done eating it. …

Thursday Thoughts: May (snow) Showers Edition

Random Thursday Thoughts: Seriously?  It's May 2nd and on my run at noon I wore my warm tights, a long sleeve tech shirt, a windbreaker, ear warmers and gloves.  What's up Minnesota?

I got the new book "Hansons Marathon Method" (billed as a "renegade path to your fastest marathon").  I'm liking what I have read so far.  And I'm feeling very …

Thursday Thoughts: Recovery Week Edition

Random Thursday Thoughts: Recovery week sounds so fun in theory:  eat tons of crappy food, drink a bunch of red wine, stay up late, sleep in instead of getting up early and running a gazillion miles. In practice, however, recovery week sucks: I feel big and bloaty and crabby and edgy. Post-marathon depression has set …
