  1. RUN
    good 1.7 mi 00:16 09:27 pace

    So it was misting when I first left the house this morning, early enough that only the garbage men saw me huffing down the sidewalk, grin on my face. The light rain made it feel as if I was close t... read more

    blah Break-a-dawn Bed-Stuy 1.6 mi 00:16 10:00 pace

    Awoke earlier than the neighborhood for a quick run. Enjoyed the relative solitude, but not the soreness from yesterday. I tried to push through the pain but instead I pushed into it. Somehow I wen... read more

  3. RUN
    alright 1.5 mi 00:15 10:14 pace

    First run back after a long period of supreme lethargy. Felt good. Not a lot of people jogging in Bed-Stuy. Got some stares from a few of the gentlemen drinking their morning 40oz.

  4. RUN
    alright 2.57 mi 00:24 09:16 pace

    Today I'm not so fond of running, I just like the feeling I get when I stop.

      Yeah, it feels great to stop. At least until the lactic acid kicks in. . .

      If I don't time it right, the lactic acid squeezes my calves about two flights up my five-floor climb back to the apartment. By the time I find the chutzpah to key into the front door my entire body is in revolt. It's pretty awesome. And that first sip of water in the bosom of the couch is pure bliss.

      Woo-hoo! Back in the Frees! Nice run.

      I mix lactic acid with some berries and it tastes just like a yogurt shake.

    Incredible. Came up to the Kingston area to visit my friend Eliot, and he took me to Woodstock, NY, where we started hiking up Overlook Mountain. All the way to the tippy top. There were stunning v... read more

    First day back after my weird-ass leg injury. Felt good. Kept it short and sweet because my lungs weren't up to sucking that much oxygen. Ainsley was along for the hobble but she was cool abou... read more

    alright Midnight Run with a Tricky Knee 1.25 mi 00:11:22 09:05 pace

    After my first two 5Ks on back to back days, I took yesterday off to recover. My left knee felt tricky all day, especially when going up or down stairs. Almost weak, like it could give at any momen... read more

      Simon: Midnight Run with Tricky Knee would be an awesome name for a blues band.

      Saco, it would have to be stripped down, dustbowl-era blues to properly capture the raw sorrow of not being able to run without a limp. I've been hobbling through my first injury, and finally am about to run for the first time since the crazy pain hit. I'll be taking it easy. Probably listening to Leadbelly while my leaden legs carry me to a sweaty salvation.

    Went out for a run with Poirier's LP _Running High_ throbbing in my ears, an exploration into Baile Funk that seems like it was made for pounding cracked pavement. It was getting dark, and I t... read more

      Did you really chocolate milk in the apartment?

      And you know sweating doesn't count as a shower, right? Just because you're wet doesn't mean your clean. (Kidding.)

      I thought that seasoned runners didn't have as much of a problem with the perspiration. Good to hear I have more moisture to look forward to as I get better.

      Thanks for following back a total stranger who doesn't know a thing about this leg-swinging business!

      This wasn't a virgin run! You ran outside at least two other times. Once in the dead of winter, and I think you were going to get a pack of cigarettes. Then the year before that, when we went for a run in Oklahoma and looked like we were octogenarian walkers from a distance. This was just your first run in New York City. And you didn't get mugged.
