10 Miler Training: Weeks 15-17

As mentioned before, I sprained my ankle so I haven’t been running. That’s why I haven’t bothered with the recaps. There hasn’t been much to recap. I’ve been resting my ankle and avoiding running. As I entered the 18th and final week of training, I figured it was a good time to recap the past…

The Most Disorganized Walk Ever

One of my favorite forms of community service is a walk-a-thon. I get to raise money for a great cause and I get my exercise in. It’s a win-win. This morning I participated in Step Out: Walk to Stop Diabetes with some members of the NYU Circle K. It was the most disorganized walk I’ve…

The Liebster Award

Fellow blogger and a friend of mine, John, recently nominated me for the Liebster Award. This award is given to an up & coming blogger from another up & coming blogger.

10 Miler Training: Weeks 13 & 14

Unlucky 13, right? You can say that again. Week 13 turned out to be nothing more than a big disappointment. But what’s new? No other week has been good either. Monday I arrive back from Florida. We took the first flight out and went directly to work. When I finally got home that evening, I…

Mackinac Bridge Walk

Labor Day is the only day of the year that people can walk across the Mackinac Bridge (for those of you that are not from Michigan, it’s pronounced “Mackinaw”). This year I got to take the five mile journey from Michigan’s upper peninsula to the lower peninsula. It was a freezing cold Michigan morning, overcast…
