Whiny Fall Season Recap
Okay - this time for real, I'm going to start posting regularly once again. I'd apologize for a lack of content over the past three months, but I didn't really have much to post about. I had big aspirations for a multi-pronged assault on my PR's, and while ...

Race Re-Hash: Parks Half Marathon
Let's flashback to 2008, where I spent the majority of my weekends in the showroom of RnJ Sports in Rockville. If there wasn't a meet, I'd be slinging shoes left and right at discounted prices. The level of foot traffic (har har) into the store kept me mode...

Once again, I've been lazy about updating this blog. I figured that I'd wait until I ran some sort of crazy PR on the upswing from my summer racing rut, but that hasn't happened yet. However, I think I've become a bit more enlightened in regards to my outlo...

Race Re-Hash: Pike's Peek 10k
I went to the library yesterday in search of some sort of personal finance self-help book. I'm almost a year into the working world and I have absolutely no clue how I should be managing my money. Google searches have been helpful to a point, and using Mint...

"Race" Re-Hash: Cherry Blossom 10-Miler
On the last episode of Redhead's Running, our helmet-haired hero had recently endured a drawn out duel with his own immune system . That Sunday, I was convinced that I would be able to jump back into things and race well at Cherry Blossom on the basis of ru...

Rising from the dead
In any office or classroom, there's always a guy (or girl) who never gets sick. However, a strong immune system isn't the most important marker of this person, rather its their need to explain their comparative health. He or she will try to make eye contact...

MoCo Runnin' in the spring
When it comes to track, early spring is not the most conducive time of year for fast performances. I know next to nothing about weather, but I'm not sure it's possible to have a sunny day without some semblance of wind during March. After an entire winter d...
