Thanks for stopping by...from Billings!

This is awesome! Dave came all the way from Billings, Montana to run with Joe! Couldn't get a free coffee anywhere else? Geez!

Check out the attached link to Run Montana. Maybe it's time for a field trip to Billings! Dave won't mind if we all crash on his floor...right, Dave?

Thanks, Dave! He's a super runner and he also does Triathlons! Dave is now my hero! Dave is the second person to run with us on his trip to the big bad city!

We also have some other nice new folks. Unfortunately I am poor with names, but I ran with a Chrissy, a Lori, and a Ole...sorry to the other new folk who's names escape me. It's not you, it's me and the aluminum in my deoderant.

The weather has been great for running! I say we start up once every other week evening runs from my apartment in midtown. If anyone's interested, write me on my e-mail.

As for Stone Barns, I think it isn't worth the trip in the end. It's a schlepp and then there's not as much to do and see and eat as I had hoped. I'll look into some other ideas. Anyone up for a Club Happy Hour?

Yes, my blog today is very ADHD.

Hi from Tokyo!!

Dear Gabby
Thanks always for the emails.
I ran with you once...and went back home to Tokyo, where I am writing from. I miss nyc!
However, my fiancee is still in nyc and running the marathon on Sunday, and I would appreciate if you could include his name on the signs.
I would have loved to join you make the signs but...can't make the weekend trip from Tokyo! Sorry, but I respect your efforts very much!
His name is DAITARO SATO, but just DAITARO will do.
Hoping for a good run-weather,
best wishes,

Yuki Akehi

San Francisco

I've really been remiss in keeping up this blog. Lately, I thought the ten plagues were hitting me, and that's kept me away from my computer (plague 8: destruction of all electrical devices).. Alright, I really only have 1 plague, but it was enough(Dayenu)! I got pink eye...pretty embarrassing. I was waiting for lice next and my 4th grade teacher to send me out into the hall for misbehaving.. I didn't think anyone over 10 could get pink eye. It's a dirty little secret, but once it's out there, everyone admits to having had it!

But, back to running..I went to San Fran with my brother to see the sights, check out the coffee world out there, and to run! I did one great big jaunt. I kind of got lost (even toting a map), and ended up running for 1 1/2 hours up hills, down hills, up more hills! Wow that city is hilly! I ran right through downtown, up to the Presidio, across Nob Hill (wow! those are some nice mansions with a view!).

That was the only run I did in 4 days..Now I've got to catch up, so I'll be signing off now to run in the Park. G-d! I missed New York! Nothing like it!
