Should I care about toenails?

By |

Brace yourself for some riveting content, folks: today I want to talk about toenails. Now I don’t know about you, but I definitely hate clipping my toenails. I even hate when others clip my toenails during pedicures. Just typing this makes me cringe with discomfort. Alas, foot care is a necessity, especially for runners.

To Train, or Not To Train at Race Distance?

I came across an interesting tweet from Hal Higdon, a juggernaut in the sport of running. Famous for both his writing at Runners World, coaching, as well as racing in the sport himself. I thought i’d share it here, as well as my own experiences at the half-marathon distance.

I Marie Kondoed My Clothes!

By |

Happy annual day of annoyance that follows a Patriots super bowl win.

On Saturday, Ellie and I watched the first episode of Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on Netflix. For those of you who are unaware of the latest sensation sweeping the nation, Marie Kondo is a professional organizer from Japan who encourages people to declutter […]
