2015 MalmöMilen = no longer “optional”


Last summer I ran my very first (and only) 10K race. And I’m using the term “race”  very loosely here. For me, the only race involved was against the event crew responsible for disassembling the finish line timing system. I had been challenged to run it the summer before by my friend and then soon-to-be …

In case anybody needs a gift idea for me …


  It’s also available as a sweatshirt, coffee mug and a bumper sticker, but I don’t own a car. Though I suppose I could always stick it to my ass while I’m out not enjoying a run. 😛

Race Day!!!


[Insert Carol Ann from “Poltergeist” impression] “It’s Heeeeeere.” After a year of blood (blisters), sweat and occasional tears, the day of reckoning has finally arrived.

Most of my …

I am running, hear me “Roar”!

I have been wanting to blog about this Katy Perry song for several weeks now, but I hate the “official” video for it so much that I couldn’t bring myself to embed it here. Plus there’s this pesky calf injury that has kept me from running for the past three weeks, so I haven’t actually put …

Pasta is perfect plank food


It only took 5 months, but Dr. Darling and I were finally able to return the hospitality we enjoyed at our friends Sophie & Matilda’s place last May … though oddly enough, they did not feel compelled to turn up with a broken bottle of Bushwacker chardonnay. How novel! Since then, these two have become pretty …
