  • Tue, 15:30: Leaped over the 1,000-mile hurdle for the year on Friday and just lined up 1,300+ miles into October. Somehow this doesn't seem nuts.
  • Tue, 15:31: I'll top last year's mark of 1,955 in late August, most likely (I'll cut myself some slack on vacations).
  • Wed, 09:29: So, uh, impressive spin and bus-tossing moves by FIFA. Widespread corruption? Nah, just those CONCACAF jerks screwing around, apparently.
  • Wed, 11:28: My favorite part about New Google Maps is having to keep the Lite version bookmarked, since the regular version sucks so hard.

  • Tue, 09:57: RT @zoowithroy: "LET THEM EAT TASTYKAKES." - Ruben Amaro, Jr.
  • Tue, 09:59: If you ever need a way to laugh at yourself, just remember those six months in 1993 when we all listened to the Spin Doctors.
  • Tue, 11:07: Let's all just admit we get nothing done the Tuesday after a long weekend, and just make all 3-day weekends into 4-day weekends.

  • Fri, 08:30: Canada geese are the drunk, obnoxious frat bros of the bird world.

  • Tue, 11:33: OK, sure, the beer mile is pretty crazy, but it can't touch the Bicentennial: 100 miles, 100 beers, 7 days.

  • Fri, 22:02: Possible new running goal: get fast enough to enter via qualifying time in the 3 big US marathons (NY, BOS, CHI). Already good for Chicago.
  • Fri, 22:04: Getting into Boston is easier than NY - need to cut 5-6 minutes to get into Boston, 19 for NY. Long term, maybe I can swing that.
  • Sat, 08:44: One day I'm afraid I'm going to run into a pack of T-Rex-arm runners and they're going to turn into T-Rexes and this is why I run fast.

  • Fri, 07:27: Hey, @Nov_ProjectPHL, nice turnout, but please be considerate of other runners/bikers and leave Lemon Hill open before you start. Thanks!
  • Fri, 07:56: En Vogue playing at the coffee shop this morning. Suddenly I feel like I'm in 6th grade and listening to Eagle 106.
  • Fri, 09:40: Bike commuted to work, so when I get home I guess I have to style my facial hail into some absurdity. Except I didn't ride a fixie, so...

  • Fri, 12:58: I'm running @IBXRun10 in glow-in-the-dark shoes and I'll toss a chocolate milk in my bag for after. I swear I'm not 6 years old.
  • Fri, 13:02: No, mass-market beer company, you can't call something "once-in-a-lifetime," then say it's happening again. Words don't work that way.

  • Thu, 19:15: Avg. running cadence is ~180 steps/minute, say the experts. My new Garmin says I hit 179 on easy runs, so... huh. They might be right.
  • Fri, 07:33: This is why no one invites you to parties except around Christmas, Winter. You get sloppy and overstay your welcome. You're drunk. Go home.

  • Wed, 07:19: Last significant speed workout before @IBXRun10, and I clock under a 6:30 average for 6 miles. The stretch goal just became 65 minutes.
  • Wed, 11:46: By the end of April, I'll have whizzed by my entire year's total mileage from 2011. This seems equal parts insane and totally normal.

  • Sat, 07:54: All right, time to go take a shot at a 10K PR and the elusive 40-minute mark.
  • Sat, 10:55: OK, so I missed the mark, time-wise, but going top-10 and winning my age group aren't too bad. 41:12 is a new PR, too.

  • Tue, 07:57: Achievement unlocked: Deep-Sixed (5:54 mile).
  • Tue, 10:35: The real reason I decided to take a job in Center City is upon us: @benandjerrys free cone day is a walk to Rittenhouse away.
