Thirteen mile run up Eagle Creek this morning with Jordan and Ry. First signs of fall on the trail. Gorgeous — coming up on my favorite season of the year.
Leah bought me a combination GPS & heart rate monitor watch for my birthday. Coming from someone who’s been running as many years as he’s been alive, this watch has completely changed training patterns. Before, training to me was running as far as I could,… Continue reading →
Trail run with Jordan today to Hood’s Paradise Park. Twelve miles in total over three hours, and running for nine miles / two hours.
I didn’t bonk on this one, but I did feel pretty beat at the end of it. And today definitely wouldn’t have been a good day for forty.
The theory is that it was a combination of dehydration and the wrong heart rate for me. Planning to pick up a Garmin GPS + heart rate monitor watch — we’ll see how slow running at 145 bpm is like.

Wonderful 55 minute run on Leif Ericksen with Jordan. Sun set to reveal peeks at the city through barren trees. Feels great to be back at it.

Ran twenty miles this morning, the last long one before the marathon two weeks from now. The first half involved running down to the waterfront and doing a few loops — it felt great. The second half became increasingly more difficult because I ignored Leah’s advice to fuel early and often. Lesson learned.
Quartz also launched this morning. It’s the bleeding-edge of what’s being built on top of WordPress. I’m excited to see how the application continues to evolve and, being a long-time Economist reader, doubly excited to become an active reader. Quartz brings new meaning to the phrase “Powered by WordPress.com VIP.”
Verdict: amaaaaaaazing. There’s even a neighborhood pool.
Shipped code for ONA, ran twelve miles in Forest Park, ate the second best biscuits and gravy I’ve had at Stepping Stone Cafe, and now looking at a few houses with Leah. Just another Sunday.
They call it “the mother of all relays.” I call it another check mark on the list of life goals. It surprises me how enjoyable the race was, after years of hearing horror stories from my mom. The team, filled with complete strangers to me… Continue reading →
