Still not dead last and I gained a wee bit in both pace and time
April 9, 2016
Last night I ran the second of five Friday night 5k runs in what’s called the Crystal City 5k Fridays series sponsored by Pacers Running. Long and short of it: I shaved six seconds from my time last week: 46:17 vesus 46:11. Then, in terms of rank, 488th out of 497 men, this week it’s 510th […]
Not DFL in my first Crystal City 5k Fridays race!
April 2, 2016

Review of StrideBox subscription box for runners
February 18, 2016
I’ve been a StrideBox member since October 2, 2013. And I have always been amazed and amused by the variety and creativity of testers products for runners. So many little dibs and dabs of everything a runner might need, and stuff that you’d never think of, from flashy little lights that grip your ankles or wrap around […]
