Reach the Beach: In Pictures and Numbers

Running into the finish.

This weekend I had the chance to run Reach the Beach, a 200 mile relay that takes teams from Cannon Mountain in the White Mountains of New Hampshire to Hampton Beach on New Hampshire’s coast. The amount of writing it would take to do justice to the two days would require that you sit at [...]

Left Out

Sometimes that feeling of "missing out" causes us to rush into running when our bodies really need to rest and heal.

“But I feel left out!” Sophia wailed as I guided her into the house, leaving behind her older cousins and their friends playing in the ally next to the beach house. I can remember that feeling as a kid, when bedtime came and it was still light outside. It was agonizing to know that outside [...]

I am now four weeks in to my conservative physical therapy recovery plan, [...]
