Playing Hooky

It’s Patriots Day, which means playing hooky from work so I can go watch the marathon. I’m also playing hooky from the blog for the day. Monday’s post (a recap of Tyler’s amazing treadmill world record) will appear on Tuesday, and then Wednesday’s post will appear on Wednesday. At least that’s the plan! I hope everyone enjoys today’s activities, whether you are playing hooky and out on the course or stuck at work or watching from home.

About Jon Waldron

Running and Racing have been important parts of my life for as long as I can remember. I ran Track and Cross Country at Amherst HS, back in the day, and am proud to have been training and competing with the Cambridge Sports Union (CSU) for more than thirty years. If my bones hold out, I hope to continue for another thirty. Sixteen years ago, I began coaching, first as an Asst. Coach at Newton North HS in Newton, MA, and for the past ten years, as Head Track and Cross Country Coach at Concord Academy in Concord, Massachusetts. I've been writing about running for almost as long as I've been running, dating back to high school, when I would write meet summaries for the Amherst Record for about $0.33 per column inch. I've been blogging about running since 2005, and began blogging at "the runner eclectic" in 2014. Until recently I also had a day job, working full-time as a Technical Product Manager for Nuance Communications, based in Burlington, MA. But I am now on what might turn out to be a permanent sabbatical. Thank you for reading my blog, and please consider leaving a comment.
