Just got my butt kicked in a beautiful place


Dr. Darling and I are back from our much anticipated first-ever road-trip with our friends Sophie & Matilda (AKA “the Sonic Youth”). We share a lot of similar interests and they are just plain fun to be with … so we kind of figured that traveling with them had the potential to be all kinds of win. On …

Too bad we’re not skiing


Dr. Darling and I are heading to the Swiss Alps tomorrow for a highly anticipated long “Training Weekend” organized by Coach Bad-@$$. “Highly anticipated” because #1) it’s the first time we’ve ever road-tripped with the globe-trotting Sonic Youth (AKA Sophie & Mrs. Coach Bad-@$$, Matilda), something we have long wanted to do, B) it’s going …

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. 😛

The scale’s got my number

Over the past 4.5 months, my fitness mentors, informal nutrition advisors, Team Sopherocious members & personal cheerleaders have all (wisely & rightly) advised me to ignore the scale. After all, weight-loss is only one of numerous ways to measure the effectiveness of a work-out regimen and/or healthy diet. But when Dr. Darling and I started …
