Look who I ran into on the Cleveland Marathon course! #latergram #cleveland #marathon #clevelandmarathon
Check out the July issue of @runningtimes. That's me on page 34.
Terrific run today. Met my buddy Hans for a little trail running south of San Francisco. Gained over a thousand feet in just a couple of miles.
Ran my 48th marathon this morning. It was a half hour slower than last time I ran here, but that was the plan. Took it easy and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. #bigsurmarathon #rwchallenge
Traded in the coast for a different kind of beauty. Tough run (especially with tired legs) but the views at the top were totally worth it. #seenonmyrun #run #hills #pleasanton
After graduating from college in 2005, I decided to start keeping a reading log. Since then, I've read 195 books. That's 69,264 pages in case you're curious. These days, I'm reading fewer books than I once was (thanks mainly to a subscription The Economist), but books are still regularly added to the Reading Log.
At a luau with my lovely bride.

Marathon #49 was a good one. Thank you Emmett for being the best fan ever! Now, beers with our buddies. (Milk for him.)
From Saturday's trip to the mountains with @ericasara. #latergram #colorado
This road looked so good on my run this morning I had to drive back with @ericasara and Emmett to show them. #seenonmyrun #alburtis #lehighvalley #trees #dirtroad

Emmett seems to like the backyard campfire.
To date, I've run 49 marathons in 29 states, the most recent being Ohio. Eventually, the goal is to get all 50, but that's going to take a while. Here's a map of the progress. My personal best is a 2:52:11, set in March 2013, but the goal is to improve that too. For more running stats, visit my running log.
Fantastic run this morning. After a week of zeroes thanks to an injured knee, I got out for four miles in NYC. No knee pain!
Fact: Beer tastes 26.2 times better after 26.2 miles. (And in a dry, non-sweaty shirt.)
