March 13 – Running Update

The Movings…..

So the last two weeks have been kinds busy. Two Saturdays ago, my son Peter and his family, wife Missy and daughter Zoe moved out of Missy’s parents house and into a new apartment. The apartment is right in Riverside and is a small commercial strip of stores that have been renovated and converted into six really nice apartments.

After we moved Peter in my daughter Elizabeth who lives with us decided that she too would like to move into the apartments. Peter and Missy have rented a three apartment. It is the largest of the six apartments. Elizabeth wanted a two bedroom apartment and one of the ones that is on the second floor. read more

A Strong 4-Mile Run – Music by Albany Down

The Run – 4.25 Mile Harper Loop

So I ran yesterday for the first time since last Wednesday. The reasons I didn’t run are: I worked at Target on Thursday and Friday, then on Saturday I helped my son Peter and his family move into their new apartment.So each day I was tired and on Sunday I just collapsed!

Anyway last Wednesday’s run was my four-mile Creek Out and Back run. And I ran it a little over a minute faster than the previous time I had run the same course. There is improvement!! So yesterday I decided to run another four-mile course. I chose the course that I call Harper Loop and it is one of the few courses that I run that has a hill or two in it. read more

The Last Days of Night – Graham Moore

The Last Days of Night – Graham Moore

The Last Days of Night by Graham Moore is in the words of Gillian Flynn….

“Mesmerizing, clever, and absolutely crackling, The Last Days of Night is a triumph of imagination.  Graham Moore has chosen the Gilded Age of New York as his playground, with outstanding characters – Edison, Tesla, Westinghouse – as hi players. The result is a beautifully researched , endlessly entertaining novel that will leave you buzzing.” read more
