Dear Billy, Thank you for your comments and concern. It sounds like you are a very important person if your job requires you to show up to it all dressed up and you don't have an opportunity to change clothes. Thank you as well for your concern about my investment. The $25/month I allocated towards per-ride Metrocards includes days where it rains. However, if I'm able to ride to work in precipitation-free weather, I'm happy to ride home in the rain, which significantly cuts down the number of subway rides I take. The best benefit of riding my bike to work is that I get to say "it's SO nice out!" a lot.

HAHAHA those jokes are my favorite. Anyway...I've decided to dust the ol cobwebs off my blog, and post about something that for once isn't about me (well, kinda), and instead about YOU! Last July I bought a commuter bike. It was killing me that I was spending over an hour... Continue reading

Note: This picture is definitely not from the end of the 1993 NBA season, after Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls had won their third consecutive championship. After hearing about my race last weekend, MJ was so inspired that he dusted off his old Bulls uniform, snapped this picture, and... Continue reading

Allen Iverson and I are kindred spirits apparently. Triathlon is a very honest sport. In order to succeed, you must train your weaknesses more than your strengths in order to have a good overall race. Unfortunately.......I find this very difficult, and last weekend's Philadelphia Triathlon was a great example of... Continue reading

I hate being late to anything. Can't stand it. I think it's the stereotypical assumption that musicians are never on time that drives me crazy and instilled this obsessive aversion to tardiness. If timeliness is within my control, I'll be on time. So naturally, I was late to the start... Continue reading

As most of you know, I live a double life. Aside from working at Jackrabbit and training for/competing in triathlons, I'm also a musician. As you can imagine, the lifestyle aspects of each are quite contradictory. Triathletes are usually working out before the sun comes up; musicians usually get home... Continue reading

NY1 ran a story about the Empire State Building Run-up on Monday morning, the day before the race. They noted that the only way to train for a stairclimbing race was to run thousands of stairs. Great. I hadn't. Yes, I've been swimming, biking, and running, but I don't think... Continue reading

Hey Emerson, Check out this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TOG0PaDYJvs&feature=related Although it is an advertisement for an expensive training tool, the guy does show a quick but informative comparison of the mechanics of an average, a very good, and a world class runner. Definitely worth taking a look and studying the differences among the three. There are a ton of videos on youtube about running form. Lots are crap, so try and weed out the bad ones. As far as method, I don't really follow one specific form method, although I guess you could say many aspects are similar to Pose running. Thanks for the feedback, Terry

As I wrote close to a decade ago in my first post about forefoot striking, there'd be a follow up post discussing safe ways to start adjusting your running mechanics. Well......this is it! Now before we start, here are a few things to remember. It took me close to a... Continue reading

While I could recap the entire race weekend (two 13 hour drives, eating more fast food in two days than I have in the past two years, "Paradise By The Dashboard Light", almost not making it to the race), doing that would probably blow up the internet. So let's begin... Continue reading

I know what you're thinking, "Oh jeez, yet another take on barefoot running". Not yet. I'm going to break these ramblings up into two parts. The first will chronicle my own experience adjusting my mechanics and the second will examine why changes in your form can be good.....or bad. Let... Continue reading

As my friend NSQ always says, "when you put on a race number, you sure as [heck] better race your [buttocks] off" (or something like that). To Ms. SQ, there isn't an excuse good enough to justify not leaving everything on the course (see: NYRR Sprint Tri where she crashed... Continue reading
