Green Mountain 200-Mile Relay 2009

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Last weekend I ran a crazy 200-mile relay through the mountains of Vermont. The Green Mountain Relay was one of the hardest running events I’ve ever done in my short running career: 12 people, 2 vans, 36 legs, and a weekend of absurdity. Each runner was numbered 1 through 12 and ran 3 assigned legs. […]

Of Burritos & Running

Thursday, April 23rd, 2009 · 2 Comments

I love a burrito. Especially when it’s free. And even if it’s from a chain. As Jen always says: It’s the perfect food. It contains ingredients from all the food groups, and we both agree we could eat burritos for every meal. Today I did for two out of three. Just got home from the […]

Birthday Porch Sitting & Dinner @ Leon’s

Monday, April 6th, 2009 · 3 Comments

I’ve been accused of letting my blog turn too much into a running-focused blog, and have been encouraged by more than one reader — including Dan of Fun in Saratoga, whom we last saw at the UPH Fundraiser a couple weeks ago — to write more about the restaurants we visit and the food we […]

Birthday Blog Post

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009 · Comments Off on Birthday Blog Post

Today is my 32nd birthday. I’m writing that down so I don’t forget (as I hear tends to happen with age). However, I officially stopped counting after 30, and have actually caught myself forgetting how old I am sometimes (or at least not thinking about it as much as I used to). Of course, I […]

Wine Club #9

Wednesday, March 18th, 2009 · 1 Comment

It’d been about 4 months since the last Saratoga Wine Club #8, the economy was in the toilet, and cheap wine was in the air. So on February 22, 2009 — yes, I’m blogging about an event only a month old! — Jen and I hosted Wine Club #9: Recession Edition. The mission: Find a […]

Polar Cap 2009: 1st in Division!

Saturday, February 7th, 2009 · 8 Comments

I did it: I won my first race! At least in my division (male 30-34). It was the Polar Cap 4-miler in Lake George, which was the second race I ever ran last year. Coincidentally, I wrote in that blog entry a year ago: “I think it’s realistic for me to aim for a top […]

Chowderfest 2009

Saturday, February 7th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Last weekend the gang assembled for another rockin’ Chowderfest. The Chandlers hosted the pre-party. Bloody maries and mimosas before noon meant that 9pm would feel late. Really late. Those of you on Facebook have already seen a selection of photographic highlights from the day, and those of you who lived through it have seen them […]

Winter Wimp 2009: 2nd in Division!

Sunday, January 11th, 2009 · 1 Comment

Yesterday I ran the Winter Wimp for the second year in a row — my 1-year racing anniversary. The race had special significance for me since a year ago it was the first distance race I’d ever run. And what a difference a year makes. Just how much faster am I 12 months later? First, […]
