21 Sep 12 Things To Remember When Facing An Assailant, Part 2

Every man has had a mother, sister or wife who has been told all her life that the way to get away from an attacker is to kick him in the groin. This can be an affective move if you are lucky. Unfortunately every man expects that as the first defensive move from a woman. If you can indeed get a good solid knee strike to the man’s testicles, take it. Beware of overconfidence though. Hollywood (and your mother) will say the villain in this story will grab his groin, roll his eyes upward, give a deathlike groan and hit the ground like a stone.

These were dangerous conditions for a runner, and as there were no other runners in sight, as there normally would be, I could only assume that I was either the bravest or the dumbest person in modern athletics.

03 Sep 12 Thunder, Lightning and Me, Part 1

As an intrepid runner, you are in a constant war with nature. You might be the most anal conservationist as I am, but you are at war with nature each time you don those short and shoes and tank top and decide to brave the elements for a few good miles of solid running. There is no better time to win those small battles against uncooperative weather than during the spring. This is the beginning of warm weather, allergies and extremely inclement weather of the rainy variety. (more…)
