Wooooooo… scary

In honor(?) of Halloween, here are two scary facts about UW Madison. 1. There are two people buried at the top of Bascom Hill near the statue of Abraham Lincoln. That grey thing in the middle of the picture is Abe. According to the University News, “One is the grave of Samuel Warren, of Middlesex, […]

A nice surprise all around

So the Haunted Hustle was an all around success! Executive summary: The race was well organized, the course was great, and I finished in 1:50:22- not a PR, but a good time for me. The long version: As I said yesterday, I went into the race with low expectations.  I got dressed and donned my […]

Oh dear

T minus two hours until the start of the Haunted Hustle half marathon. Registering for this race seemed like such a good idea at the time…  I’d come off a break from training, I’d done some good workouts, and I was ready for fall racing season to start.  Fast forward to now, and, well, I’m ambivalent.

WIWW

It’s another installment of What I Wore Wednesday! This morning it was 42 degrees- feels like 36 with- a heavy wind blowing off the lake.

WIWW

There’s a lot of Wednesday blog memes (WIAW, Wordless Wednesday, WTF Wednesday) and I’m going to throw another one into the mix: What I Wore Wednesday.  This isn’t going to be about my normal clothes, though.  While I make an attempt to look cute on a daily basis, I’m no fashion expert.  However, it has […]

Our other activity this weekend was visiting the Minhas Craft Brewery in Monroe, WI, which is billed as the oldest Brewery in the Midwest and the second oldest brewery in the US after Yuengling.  I’d never heard of any of the beers they brew, but the tour/tasting had been recommended to me by a coworker […]

My in-laws are in town this weekend and yesterday we went to the UW Homecoming Game vs. Indiana.  As a medical school employee, I get first dibs on any tickets from the Homecoming block that aren’t purchased by members of the Medical Alumni Association, so I sprinted over to the health sciences building last Friday […]
