re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - vistajay
I love running in a random place while out of town and it ending up being a great run. Was in Tallahassee visiting my son, staying at a generic hotel with no good running immediately nearby. But a 15 min drive away was a park with miles of running, mountain biking and equestrian trails; on the north...

re: Does anyone have Adult diagnosed ADD? - vistajay
You'd be surprised at how many kids, boys especially, are on ADD/ADHD in high schools in affluent areas. My three kids: School counselor told us daughter was ADD in third grade and should see a doctor. We said thanks we already knew that, and we handled by helping her structure her day with th...

re: Is there a dish you just can't get right? - vistajay
Wife always wants me to lightly sear tuna steaks on the grill, such that they are charred a bit on outside and raw in the middle. I always overcook it, because grilling that quickly does not allow for enough time to enjoy a beer....

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - vistajay
When I travel for work the hotel gyms are packed with people on treadmills, even when I am in an interesting place and the weather is nice. Screw that, get outside. The only time I used one was when I was in a po dunk TX oil town where the only road had no shoulder and huge trucks whizzing by contin...

re: Official Running Log/Marathon Training Thread - vistajay
January is going well so far. On pace for about 85 miles this month, which would get me to 1000 for the year if I kept it up but no way I will. Some injury will knock me out a month or two, and summers in our S. LA climate demand cross training. Still, happy with my start. Planning a 5k in about 10 ...

re: How many of you grew up in a racist environment? - vistajay
My NOLA Uptown bred parents and both sets of grandparents harbored conventionally racist attitudes if you really pinned them down in a conversation, but they were too well mannered to talk about it and I never heard any of them utter the N word their whole lives. As a kid in the 70s we used that wor...
