I have written a lot about the hate/hate relationship between cyclists and drivers.  But I am learning that this hate is not a universal.  There are drivers who hate cyclists and there are cyclists who think every driver is out to get them. But there are also cyclists (I count myself among these) who understand […]

At fields all over the county parents stand alongside soccer, football and field hockey games, cheering their children on.  Weekends are dedicated to running from one field to another in order to get out children to their games as much as an hour before kickoff.  We spend our weeknights juggling a schedule filled with homework, […]

My friend Michael emailed me last week to let me know he was going to be in the area for the weekend.  He suggested we go for a run.  These are my favorite calls.  I love to see friends but running friends are even more fun.  They give me an excuse to pick one of […]

Don’t tell anybody, but triathlons are really meant for kids.  I know that my friends and I train and work hard to get better at each of the three disciplines but really it is a sport that takes us back to our youth.  Is there anything better than an afternoon spent swimming at the neighborhood […]

Chuck at my gym misses me in the spring, summer and a good portion of the fall.  I still work out but I am only in the gym for strength training twice a week.  The rest of the time I can be found outside, either on my neighborhood streets, the B&A Trail or when I […]
