My favorite race is the Black Squirrel Half Marathon. After running it the past four years I decided to skip it this year, as it fell just one week before the Mogollon Monster 100. I made a video instead.

As Iโ€™m taking a big drink my wife says to me, โ€œIโ€™m really excited to write this lecture about diarrhea.โ€


When I moved into this house 3 years ago I bought a vent to install in the bathroom ceiling. I installed it today. I guess it was hard to find the right combination of motivation, free time, and appropriate attic weather (we only have 2 seasons: summer/winter).

Cold, rainy, muddy: my perfect race weather. 2018 Quad Rock 50 mile race done and dusted. My 9h28m finish was 2 hours faster than Iโ€™ve ever run this race before, and, realistically, as good as I could hope on a course with over 2 miles cumulative vertical ascent/descent.

Maybe instead of removing this function we could add a 24th parameter to it to make it more useful?

I hiked through the starry night listening to 10% Happier by Dan Harris. Very entertaining read about the benefits of mindfulness without the supernatural BS. ๐Ÿ“š
