On the #BostonMarathon weekend, and 9 years after the terror attack, I am again reminded about the misleading nature of #BostonStrong. From reporting for THE DEVIL NEVER SLEEPS, a new story on what strong really means. 1/

I’ve spent 7 years leveraging software & data to quantify & optimize athlete performance

• 4 as Dir. of Software Eng. for the NE Patriots
• 3 as Founder @ Notemeal

Here are 13 ways that I’m turning 7 years of experience into a 7-min pace running the ‘22 #BostonMarathon 🏃🏽‍♂️🧵
⛽️ Fueling: I’m eating my own dog food, joining 10,000 other elite athletes and optimizing my fueling with @Notemeals . @BethMiller_7, RD, CSSD, will be turning my logs into meal plans, and ensuring adequate energy availability. #DontFearTheCarbs
💪 Body Composition: I am aiming for weekly InBody tests, and monthly DEXA scans to measure changes in lean mass, fat mass and visceral fat. I'll also be comparing my own data to aggregated and anonymized data in Notemeal.

Heading out to the @bostonmarathon! This will be my 12th #marathon and 3rd Boston!

When traveling to another city, whenever possible I have a lot of fun making the trip #carfree from door to door! I'll track my trip in this thread! #BostonMarathon #TransitOriented
Leg 1: Walk to Light Rail Station

As I walked down 5th Ave in #DowntownSeattle, catching a glimpse of the @SeattleMonorail going by was fun! Seeing these sidewalks... not so much! They need some TLC to make them friendlier for all users! ♿🚶

#BostonBound
Leg 2: @SoundTransit Link Light Rail ride to @SeaTacAirport

I love the nice view of the #DowntownSeattle skyline I see from this train as it ascends from SODO to Beacon Hill!
