Running on the Road

Travel is a necessary evil of my job.  It means time away from my family and countless hours wasted sitting on airplanes and airports.

It also can impact my running, mostly in a negative way.  Odd hours, downtown hotels and a northeastern-US-heavy schedule often means cold, dark runs on strange streets.

Sometimes, however, it works out.  My recent road trip through Memphis, Charlotte and New Orleans is a perfect example.  Enjoy!

More Running Over the Weekend

Some more opportunities to run on my beloved American River Parkway.  Both runs this weekend were on the horse trails that (usually) meander between the bike path and the river.

On Saturday, Kim and I were joined by our friends Jo and Mike.

On Sunday, it was just Kim and I.  I thoroughly enjoy running with my beautiful wife.  I wish we could do it more often!

Green Bay: NOT a Paradise for Runners

In stark contrast to the video I posted to show off how perfect my fair city is for running, I give you this:

Cold as it was, it still beats the treadmill!

How old is Daddy?

I just thought this was cute :o)

Sacramento: Runners' Paradise

I often call the American River Parkway the jewel of Sacramento.  Most of my daily runs incorporate some part of the parkway, whether it's the Jedediah Smith Memorial Trail, the horse trails, the levee crest or a combination of all of those.

Here are clips from three recent runs on the parkway:

I feel fortunate to live where I do.
