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

2019 Mercer Island Half-Marathon: It’s my 40th half-marathon, and it felt like it

I achieved my goal last Sunday (March 24) of running at least 40 half-marathons. It was fitting that my 40th was the Mercer Island Half-Marathon, a demanding race I’ve done 14 times now, including before, between, and after my two … Continue reading

Cynics in the running crowd say Seattle’s Alaskan Way Viaduct will live to see another run, that we’ve heard it all before about how it’s coming down soon. But I disagree. I believe the Highway 99 tunnel will be funneling … Continue reading
