Thanks to my very generous friends and family, I have now raised 90% of my goal to raise at least $500 for The Mario Lemieux Foundation as I run the 2015 Pittsburgh Marathon.  I’m extremely thankful for everyone’s support thus far, and race day is still…
Thanks to my very generous friends and family, I have now raised 90% of my goal to raise at least $500 for The Mario Lemieux Foundation as I run the 2015 Pittsburgh Marathon. I'm extremely thankful for everyone's support thus far, and race day is still over 5 weeks away!

At least today’s, as here’s the weather description for tonight’s 5-miles of intervals (following a relaxed 6 miles this morning): That’s right!  There is no room for normal here!

In a similar vein to My Chemical Romance, The Used has been great for solid music for more than the last decade.  While they broke through with 2002’s The Taste of Ink, I’ve enjoyed much of their more recent music, including 2007’s Pretty Handsome…

Following his mini-cameo in the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, where he spent less time on-screen than he did in The Hunger Games, I thought I’d call up my favorite Lenny Kravitz song, the no-frills and moody “If You Can’t Say No”. What’s astounding about…

The thing I enjoy so much about marathon training is the challenge combined with the adventure.  When I talk about it, people ask “You ran how far?!?”, but it gives me this great chance to explore and be lost in thought.  I ran for 3 hours on Sunday, the…

While I’m not a fan of Kanye West the person (egotistical and paranoid makes for a weird combination), but I’ll admit that he does bring a good hit to the forefront every now and then. One of my favorites, which has been popping up on my randomized…

While having a catchy beat and guitar riff, it's really the vocals that make this song. They line up perfectly with the lyrics and are a great blend of anger, frustration, disappointment and longing. It's a great bold and strong song that I can play again and again.

In what was the highlight of the Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show, out of nowhere comes Missy Elliott and steals the entire show and save us all from the modern pop wasteland.  While it’s hard to pick just one song out, I’m going with “Work It”. While…

While I do enjoy winter, as a runner I’m not always a fan of how I see some people “maintain” their sidewalks.  Most of the time, it’s not that bad, and other times you bit the dust, as I did earlier this week.  Thankfully, the damage was limited to a…
