New York City Marathon Training: Week 9

Well. Things aren’t going so great around here. I’m still sick. This was the first week that I really couldn’t run and that my mileage really fell apart. And on top of the stomach stuff, which has gotten progressively worse, plus the fact that I’m so tired I can barely see what I’m typing right now, I’ve […]

On Lacking Marathon Confidence

Hey. It’s been a while, huh? In the past five days, I’ve been on two planes, I’ve set up shop in three different hotels and I’ve slept for what feels like zero hours. On Thursday, I flew to Las Vegas for my friend Lauren’s bachelorette party. We stayed in a suite at the Bellagio, which […]

Why yes, that was a run-on sentence. […]

Hey Hey From L.A.
