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!
Check out the July issue of @runningtimes. That's me on page 34.

We were so happy to find that the Buckeye Tavern cow survived the fire! It moved over to the Alburtis Tavern, where we had lunch today.
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
Emmett seems to like the backyard campfire.
After graduating from college in 2005, I decided to start keeping a reading log. Since then, I've read 196 books. That's 69,481 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.
Look who I ran into on the Cleveland Marathon course! #latergram #cleveland #marathon #clevelandmarathon

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
A stroll through the local ruins. #alburtis #lockridge
From Saturday's trip to the mountains with @ericasara. #latergram #colorado
"Son, this is a Great Lake."
Fact: Beer tastes 26.2 times better after 26.2 miles. (And in a dry, non-sweaty shirt.)
Marathon #49 was a good one. Thank you Emmett for being the best fan ever! Now, beers with our buddies. (Milk for him.)
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.
