Overheard on the Run

As I’m recovering from an injury, doc’s orders are to avoid hills and speed work while building up my mileage. The thought of doing 1 mile repeats along the flattest stretch of Prospect Park drive was not appealing so instead I opted for a two-ish mile loop that combines the western side of the park … Continue reading

Equal Rights. It’s just so obvious.

I believe in equal rights. I believe that people don’t choose their sexuality. That much like the color of your eyes you’re stuck with whatever nature decided for you.

I’ve spent the last few days hobbling around NYC on crutches to the point that yesterday when I graduated to using just the one, my shoulders thanked me. It’s been a long week. Monday, I attempted commuting to work by subway and though not impossible it was so physically exhausting that I had to take a … Continue reading
