This space will feature a more journalistic approach to running topics than has been the case on my existing blog. Having written about various aspects of professional running for over 20 years and with a few dozen interviews to my credit, I’ve quickly moved from skeptical to contemptuous about the sport’s self-appointed and self-absorbed visionaries, to whom likes and clicks at any expense are paramount not merely from a career perspective, but as a personal guiding principle. This has led many ostensibly smart people to check their intellects at the door of their banal opinion columns and tweets.

You can sign up to get e-mails of free posts whenever I make them. That’s different from subscribing, which requires you to give me at least five dollars once.

(If you have no idea who I am and why I even care, this might help.)

Why subscribe?

Subscribe to get an occasional extra post, hopefully of the sort you’re tempted to share widely and with great clamor despite the assurance of burning in Hell for the offense, as well as to give me a foundational reason to treat this blog as more of an unflinching exploratory enterprise with a little more reach and less of a combination recycling bin/landfill/compost heap for a handful of dedicated graybeards and groupies.
