Two days after a cross-country flight back home, I joined 1,000-plus other runners and walkers for the Green Lake Gobble 5K/10K at Seattle’s Green Lake Park last Sunday (November 17). It was good to put thoughts of airports and airplanes … Continue reading

2019 Emerald City Ride: Not as scenic anymore, but still a thrill to ride carless freeways

This year’s Emerald City Ride was without the featured stretch on the Alaskan Way Viaduct because, well, the viaduct no longer exists. Replacing it with a jaunt through the Highway 99 Tunnel means that you can now escape the rain … Continue reading
