Driveway Jumper Cables :O

I had a little fun today, to use the term loosely.  It's been a while since I had to jump start a car, but the car battery didn't want to cooperate.  That car had sat in the driveway, undriven, for a couple of weeks.  I guess the cold weather took a toll and it refused to start as a result.

But, once you've jumped started one car, you never lose that particular skill - even if it's been years since I last did it :D

A Few Merry Christmas Miles :D

Merry Christmas!

This morning I ran a not too chilly 5 miles.  Despite the frozen lake behind me, it wasn't cold.  The frozen landscape made it appear that way - but the upper 20's (and no wind to speak of) doesn't constitute running in the cold.  Having said that, I nevertheless stuck with tights and skipped digging out the shorts - haha!

Hope everyone has a great Christmas!!

Happy Festivus - 2019!

It's that time of year again - Festivus! 

What better way to kick off the holiday season than with yet another example of why Seinfeld was the highwater mark of sitcoms :D

Happy Winter Solstice - 2019

Happy Winter Solstice - albeit a few hours early!  It formally arrives at 11:19 PM tonight.

I spent the last day of the Fall grading exams.  All that's left is for me to submit the final grades - and then my winter break will officially begin :D

Fall Semester is Done!

Today was my last day of classes.  All that's left of the Fall semester is grading the exams, and then a month+ of winter break.  I can't believe how fast the semester went by.  Even more remarkable is my trip to San Francisco seems like it took place ages ago - and it was in October. 

I don't have any plans for the time off.  Will probably spend a good chunk of at my law office, catching up on non-teaching matters.  But, on the running side of things, I'm looking forward to jumping in a winter race.  Hard to believe I haven't run a race since last Spring :O  Even at the most low-key event, may seem a little strange lining up for one - haha.  I wonder if it's like that old saying about riding a bike....

NYRR Virtual Turkey Trot 5k - 2019

After my Thanksgiving Day post, I decided to sign up for the NYRR Virtual Turkey Trot :D

Even if I missed the pre- and post-race socializing from this year's Thanksgiving races, I could at least log my own virtual 5k mileage over the holiday weekend.

Not the same as going to an actual Turkey Trot, but it does burn off a few holiday calories ;O
