We are Superman

We are Superman

On Saturday I was walking through the park with the baby in the stroller. He fell asleep so I took a break from chatting to him and popped in my AirPods to listen to a podcast while he slept. On came the new episode of the Run the Riot podcast and straightaway it...

Ten Junk Miles

Ten Junk Miles

When I run I like to listen to music, audiobooks, and podcasts. And when it comes to podcasts, my favorite hands down is Ten Junk Miles. I've been listening to TJM almost since it launched and have fond memories of listening to a new episode in the hours before my...

Pesto Vegetable Bake

Pesto Vegetable Bake

There are plenty of ways to make a tasty meal and there are plenty of ways to make a beautiful looking meal. The trick, of course, is to try and make a tasty and beautiful looking meal at the same time! This is a favorite of mine because it is both simple to pull...

Friday Night Hike

Friday Night Hike

Today I closed out a project that I had been working on for more than two months and, man, was it good to finally knock it over. While it is likely that there are going to be a few minor re-writes and maybe even a couple of major ones on a couple of the webpages I've...

Escape the Heat

Escape the Heat

I know, I know: it's not summer yet. And I know: climate change, global warming, plastic straws, and sad polar bears mean it is going to get hot earlier and earlier each year. But, come on: it's mid-May and I'm sweating like a pig leaving the apartment to run at...

Midweek Hills

Midweek Hills

Another long day but a productive one: I knocked out six hours of work before 10:30am, looked after the kids all day, and then closed out the afternoon with a 45 minute call and I was done. The day's run had to wait for the early evening once again when the baby was...

200 Days To Go

200 Days To Go

The countdown continues and - officially - there are 200 days to go before the 2020 LyonSainteLyon. Now 200 is just a number and it's still quite a way from the time when I am kicking off with the specific training plan for the race. But it's a round number and so why...

A Little Longer

A Little Longer

I had a heavy weekend of work, family, and childcare, followed by a morning that started early (again) and was busy (again). I had scheduled this run for midday which is not ideal as I'd much rather knock it over early in the morning but - when you have a ten hour...

Journeyruns

There’s not a lot of racing on right now, and there’s not likely to be a lot of racing soon.  The LyonSainteLyon is still on the cards, of course and it’s my goal for this disrupted season. But it’s also months away and there’s little to race in the meantime. So,...

Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Cucumber and Avocado Salad

Saturdays mean chores, kids, and plenty to do so I like to try and keep things simple when it comes to lunch. This is a simple salad – I mean really simple – and it’s been something that I’ve pulled together on more than a few weekends just to get something...

Morning Glory 5K

Morning Glory 5K

A radio talk show host I used to listen to a lot used to start his shows with the phrase, "Morning Glory, Evening Grace". I always liked that and it has stuck in my mind since. Occasionally it works its way to the front of my thoughts and this morning was one of those...

Time Management

Time Management

So, after the nanny meltdown yesterday, the rest of the week has been thrown into some chaos.  It’s not that it cannot be managed because, well, it has to be managed. Childcare is one of those things that you can’t push to the side and you need to make it work...
