I had three of the most beautiful women in the world show up at work today. Three beautiful, blonde sweethearts. You just can't even imagine! I got kisses and hugs from all three. Am I the luckiest guy ever? Probably. Of course, I'm talking about my wife and daughters. And my son, he was with... Continue Reading →

Burpee Challenge

Do you have a friend that's always going these ridiculous challenges? My friend, Chris, did a kettlebell challenge this past summer. He swung that kettlebell something like 10,000 times on one month. You know what his hands looked like after a few days of that? Tenderized meat. Ewww. I have another friend, Eric, who is... Continue Reading →

A Jazzy Evening With My Wife

The weather's been wet and wild here these last few days. Swinging from cold to not-as-cold, then back again. And now they're calling for ice again tonight.

Did you win?

I think I've shared before about how my kids like to exercise with me. And by exercise, I mean dance around and make pretend that they're actually doing something even close to resembling stretching.

I can't call him something silly like "Princess Rainbow Baby Unicorn"...even if that's what my 4-year-old suggested. It has to be... Continue Reading →

Stone Cold Hill Run

Another breezy cold day here. Perfect timing for a longer run! Not many people were out in the neighborhood this afternoon, so I snuck out for a 4-miler. That means doing a few figure-8's up and down the hills of my subdivision. What's great about running here, is that it's all hills. But not long... Continue Reading →

Help Me Name My Horse!

I'm back in training again for the miniMarathon. This year, I'm keeping track of my training on the blog here. To keep these posts separate, I decided I needed a cool graphic. Hence, the flaming horse! But, I can't just keep calling it "the flaming horse". It needs a name! Why, you ask? Well, because... Continue Reading →

A Snowy Night Run

As my wife and I continue to figure out this dance of dueling workouts, I try to fit in my runs when I can. Tonight, it was after work again, but by that time the snow was starting to fall. It's beautiful to run in the falling snow. Until the flakes start hitting me in... Continue Reading →
