  • Wed, 12:29: I'm just saying maybe today wasn't the best for @twitter to send out that "What are you watching?" email about videos being shared.
  • Thu, 11:33: "Abandong," verb. To toss out your old vibrator after replacing it with a new model. Or maybe that was a typo.

  • Thu, 17:18: It's the little absurdities that make life worth living, like the meathead gym bro who just passed me riding a folding commuter bike.
  • Fri, 08:50: This morning, two separate dudes informed me I have a hairy chest. As you can imagine, I was shocked to find out this brand-new info.
  • Fri, 08:57: This morning's @SEPTAPHILLY hilarity: the woman next to me on the bus is having an extended phone conversation about Facebook drama.
  • Fri, 10:31: RT @BrianPHickey: Photos From #debphl15 (With Alternate Captions) http://t.co/RNfwi1xUmf

  • Wed, 13:46: No doubt we're in a heat wave: runs this week have averaged 79.2, 79.9 and 82.1(!) degrees—and that last one started at 5:45 a.m.
  • Wed, 13:56: Throwin' down in the office FitBit challenge. Decided to be nice and wait until after Peak Week, but... https://t.co/dxCN3iihxn
  • Thu, 08:32: RT @zoowithroy: BREAKING ZWR EXCLUSIVE: Can confirm that Phils have traded Chase Utley to #Dodgers. You heard it here FIRST from your #1Mos
  • Thu, 09:41: If you saw a desiccated husk shambling by the zoo this morning, that was me.
  • Thu, 09:46: I've been listening to a bunch of early Weezer and Foo Fighters at work lately. Guess I might as well admit it. https://t.co/SEF18OxJ8Z
  • Thu, 09:54: RT @RMcElhenney: Somewhere in the TV ether, Mac is sobbing into a pillow. #Chase
  • Thu, 11:59: Not sure what's the better #debphl15 news: the thunderstorms/flood warning or that those entitled asses are gonna be stuck in the Navy Yard.

  • Mon, 11:21: So @BrianHunterNHL managed to have George Lucas and Harry Potter at his wedding, so a note to everyone else: step up your game.

  • Thu, 09:58: Still on track for 100 this week. Good thing it's slow at work, since I'm basically just a pair of legs attached to a coffee/carb fuel tank.

  • Tue, 12:25: Waiting for the, "Venomous spiders found for 4th time, school officials say, 'Nope," burn the joint down" follow-up: http://t.co/X0ZiuIbZlF
  • Tue, 12:36: I run a max of maybe 4–5 off-road races per year (and it's usually fewer), but XC spikes are on sale, so... obviously I need those.

  • Mon, 17:41: U2 blaring over the sound system at Whole Foods. Can't get a whole lot whiter than that.
  • Tue, 10:49: fenix 2 bricks once a week mid-run (maddening); emailed @Garmin. "Yup, known issue. Send us your data." Data sent and... radio silence.
  • Tue, 10:49: Worth noting I’ve had 2 @Garmin models—305 and 410—that worked flawlessly. No idea why the fenix 2 is so wonky. Super frustrating.
  • Tue, 11:13: Always fun trying to figure out why choppers are hovering. Crash on the Schuylkill? Nah. Alleged gunman on the loose: http://t.co/2NyYyrH7x1

  • Wed, 13:08: Picked a different pair of works pants, found a Bonus Dollar in the back pocket. Nice job, Other Work Pants.
  • Wed, 13:52: My office now has a FitBit challenge. How much of a dick move would it be if I join that sucker amid peak marathon training? (Huge, I know).
  • Wed, 13:56: I'm not so much a person today as I am a walking caffeine lab experiment.
  • Wed, 16:29: Other Work Pants' bonus dollar has been upgraded to Bonus $10. Banner day over here.
  • Thu, 08:52: I can unequivocally say that the last 2 days have been the worst running conditions I've faced. Even I think I'm nuts for going out in this.
  • Thu, 09:43: OK, yeah, I guess 1,000 people covering Foo Fighters is pretty cool: https://t.co/Axboz3icv0

  • Wed, 09:31: I'm not saying trying to run 15 miles this morning was the worst idea I've ever had, but it sure was up there. Bailed after 13.6.
  • Wed, 10:56: So Roger Goodell is now the worst commissioner of any sport in history, right? I mean, the guy's making Bud Selig look like a genius.

  • Mon, 13:11: So now it's only July 27, but I've topped my annual mileage for every year except 2014. Sometimes I wonder how my legs are still attached.
  • Mon, 13:19: RT @myphillypark: Great news! The Boxers' Trail in East Fairmount Park received Philadelphia Magazine's "Best of Philly" award for... http:…

  • Thu, 12:17: Brief Disney reviews, Part 1: 7 Dwarfs Mine Train might be the smoothest coaster in the world. Also feels crazy short when the line is long.
  • Thu, 12:18: Brief Disney reviews, Part 2: I'm seriously jealous of 6-year-olds who get to battle Darth Vader/Darth Maul. (This shouldn't be a surprise.)
  • Thu, 12:21: Brief Disney reviews, Part 3: A Pirate's Adventure is seriously fun (especially Blackbeard's quest).
  • Thu, 12:23: Brief Disney reviews, Part 4: Finally saw Country Bears, and there's a surprising amount of adult humor in there.

  • Tue, 12:57: I seriously have no idea how Florida runners manage to get through the summer. Or, for that matter, how anyone in the South does.
  • Tue, 16:23: As I just said to @BrianHunterNHL, to an outsider, the Mets' batting lineup is the baseball equivalent of a shelf of store-brand cereals.
  • Wed, 08:32: Low humidity + deep shade in Pennypacker Park = a quality 10-miler this morning. That was the run I've been looking for.
