Monthly Summary – August 2016

In August, for the first time in what feels like forever, I went for a run really worth writing about. I just posted a recap of my Mulholland 85k. It was fun and really hard. Other than that, August was my usual training, plus my first run at Los Liones since Chase was born (with Chamoun),…

Mulholland 85k – Run Recap

A few years ago I noticed that Mulholland Drive/Highway runs continuously from Hollywood all the way to the ocean. It starts more or less at the 101 and Cahuenga (near the Hollywood Bowl) and winds through the Hollywood Hills, the hills above Beverly Hills, Bel Air, across the Sepulveda Pass, onto “Dirt Mulholland” between Brentwood and the Valley,…

Monthly Summary – July 2016

Another month where my only post is this monthly summary. (At least I’m still writing the monthly summary though, I guess.) Training and life these days are mostly about routine and that routine doesn’t involve much to write about. So, I don’t write. Still though, 191 miles and 27,000 feet of elevation gain made July my biggest month of running…

Monthly Summary – June 2016

June was a good month. Chase is growing and changing and becoming more fun on an almost daily basis. Between months 4 and 5, he’s become so aware of his surrounding. You can almost see his mind working to figure out things like how to get a toy just out of his reach or what…

Monthly Summary – May 2016

Chase will be 4 months old in 2 days. And oh, man, this kid is awesome. Gus is still not sure, but Charlie and Chase are becoming good buddies! He’s a lot of work (duh) but no matter how tough of a night we have, when I go to get him out of his crib…

Monthly Summary – April 2016

Chase will be three months old in a couple days. Three months! It feels like I turned around and he’s all of a sudden a big (relatively speaking of course) boy who plays with toys and reacts to specific people and smiles and laughs (sort of). These Monthly Summary posts are nominally about my training…

Monthly Summary – March 2016

    Well, we survived month #2 with baby. It hasn’t been easy and there have been times when one or both of us just wanted to throw our hands in the air and leave him for Charlie and Gus to raise (Charlie would at least try), but Chase has also been a lot of…

Monthly Summary – February 2016

February was quite a month. There was a ton packed into those 29 days. And it all went by in a flash. Of course, the biggest news was the birth of our son, Chase Mekhi. It’s been a pretty crazy ride these last four weeks. Every time I think we might be getting into a little…

LA Marathon 2016 and Team NutriBullet Wrap-Up

(Team NutriBullet 2016 Coaches and Mentors at our final practice of the season; pc: Ijaz Azfal) The LA Marathon has come and gone (almost two weeks already, but it’s been just a bit busy around here) and crossing the finish line was bittersweet because while it meant that so many of our dedicated team members…

These two

The loves of my life. Seeing this little guy’s face for the first time is something I will obviously never ever forget. It’s been three weeks since Chase Mekhi Spector was born on the evening of February 2 and it has been a crazy whirlwind. Elizabeth and Chase are healthy and Chase is slowly adjusting…
