Still Waiting On Hurricaine Isaac

Still Waiting On Hurricaine Isaac

Late this morning I was bored while waiting for some action by Hurricane Isaac to reach us here in Jefferson county (Lousiana), so I headed to Lafreniere Park for a run in nature. The sun was shinning on the way to the park.   The streets were almost empty except for a few motorist, and(…)

What About That Sports Bra?

What About That Sports Bra?

Friday morning I ran 6 miles in Lafreniere Park in 1:01:25 time.  I felt great the first four miles, and decided to run the last two  miles on the grass.   My right heel (I have a history of a heel spur) was gnawing at me even though I had applied a piece of black  Kinisiology(…)

Running At Audubon Park

Yesterday I ran 5 miles at Audubon Park and I felt happy as a lark…that I broke the monotony of running at Lafreniere Park.  That sentence sounds a bit musical.  I guess I still have that same spirit I had yesterday when I cranked up my MP3 at the start of my run.  I felt(…)

Shut It Down!

Shut It Down!

Yesterday I dragged myself for a late run at Lafreniere Park in Metairie, Louisiana, despite the two dissenting voices of inner dialogue in my head.  They say it’s okay to talk to yourself.  Yup.   Many folks do this.  It’s become a norm in this here busy society.  It’s could be the human way of doing(…)

Running Lafreniere Park

Running Lafreniere Park

Today I ran 4 miles in Lafreniere Park, in Metairie, a suburb of New Orleans, Louisiana.  The park is a beautiful, well-manicured and well-kept park.  Every0one seems to be enjoying the place, even the roosters, chickens, ducks, and birds flying around. I pulled up kind of late in the morning after 7 am and the(…)
