GIF’n Around

Finally started playing around with some GIFs this week. I know, I’m late to the party. Never really felt the need before. I came up with this one unintentionally after a photo shoot for a new 25% off sale at work: What better way to announce 25% off all winter running accessories at New England […]

Art Review

In the new year I’m trying to expand my horizons, take on new challenges. I admittedly don’t know much about art. I’ve never been especially moved by anything that I’ve seen. Until recently. The piece of inspiration is called The Dying Class and is a crayon on construction paper masterpiece by Eva Grace. Notice the […]

Not Out of the Woods

I guess the title is a bit misleading because literally I am out of the woods now (we got back home from another camping weekend last night). Instead I was referring to my own ongoing battle with injuries that have me in pedestrian mode when I desperately want to be a competitive runner again. More […]

Training Log: 06/04/13 – 06/09/13

Tuesday Jun 4th: 3.9 mi in 30:15, ran in North Andover. As you may have read here before, we went to bed Sunday night with only hours between us and a clean end to the camping trip. To find out what happened next, read last week’s training log post. The end result of that trip was […]

Training Log: 05/27/13 – 06/03/13

Monday May 27th: Off. Explored some dark ruins. Tuesday May 28th: Another good one, this one being much better than Sunday’s in terms of quality (not quantity, obviously). Splits: 8:01 7:38 7:32 Not only did I get faster as I went along but it was significantly faster and sort of resembled and actual EJN run from days […]

Training Log: 05/20/13 – 05/26/13

Monday May 20th: 3 mi in 24:33. Definitely a night where the workout got away from me. Or, it was completely slipping away until I forced the run. At the time I was indifferent, but Future Eric will be grateful that a couple of miles were squeezed in. Tuesday May 21st: 2.4 mi in 20:51. Oh boy. Waste […]

Training Log: 04/08/13 – 05/19/13

It’s been a while, here’s what I’ve been up to… Monday Apr. 8th: 2 mi in 15:54. Was about to call it a night, then said “F- it” and went downstairs for a twenty minute “workout”. Ran on the treadmill (while watching some Curb Your Enthusiasm on my phone), and then did some planks and lunges afterwards. Better […]
