First Long Run

Saturday, April 26th, 2008

I had to drop my car off at the shop today, and I figured it would be a good idea to run home.


First Running Race

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

Friday our cycling team (five of us including two coaches) had a nine mile time trial in the rain. Saturday I went for a longish ski in 70 degrees and bright sun. So it seems only natural that I would finish the weekend with the first running race of the year.


Not the Last Day on Snow??

Saturday, April 12th, 2008

I skied today at Holderness School. It was a little weird to unload the car and hook up to the Chariot with a Lacrosse game going on about 20 yards away, but in the woods the snow was actually really good.


Last Day on Snow???

Monday, April 7th, 2008

Last year I skied on April 1st on decent snow and thought it was a real treat. This year I skied yesterday at Waterville Valley; the entire center was groomed and open with near-midwinter conditions (just warmer).


The Best Shower Ever

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

To understand the title we need to start Saturday morning at six AM. I woke up early to get in a run before school started; I went for about an hour on my favorite trail, which meant running on top of about three feet of ice. I only sunk in a few inches into the snow on top, but it was still work. I didn’t have time to shower before meeting my group of students for community service.
