Reviewing the Altra Instincts, & One Small Step Along the Trail to Hippie Nut-Job (10.5 miles)

Yesterday was Saturday, so Nat and I went on our regular run to gym class, then headed out on the post-gym class run/nap combo (Nat naps, I run – switching up the roles doesn’t work to well). The weather continued to … Continue reading

A Little Here, A Little There (18 miles)

This Saturday was a gorgeously warm, almost hot, Spring day, which was a wonderful relief from the constant, uncertain threat of rain that has been hanging over the City recently.  It hasn’t actually rained that much, but every day this … Continue reading

Around Brooklyn (6.7 miles)

There’s a bike lane running along Tompkins Avenue right at the end of the block, which is great for when I run with Nat to gym class every Saturday morning.  While we often run on the sidewalk, the BOB stroller … Continue reading

To Gym Park in the Rain (6.45 miles)
