Is it Spring yet?!

We keep getting snow here. When will it stop???? It is really pretty to look at, and is sometimes nice to run amongst, but I'm over it now. I find myself longing for the days of warm sun, green grass and beautiful tulips. Do you ever feel that way, too? Makes me wish I lived... Continue Reading →

How I finally met my goal.

I have a friend who likes to run, and she made an interesting statement to me today. She said, "People who don't run, don't understand people like us." I don't mind being part of some secret club, but I like to think anyone can be a runner. So, I asked her to elaborate. She said... Continue Reading →

I Set a New PR!

I've been flirting with the barrier for the past few weeks, but couldn't make it over the hump. Well, that all ended tonight! Mile 3 was completed in 7:04!!! Feeling good about that. Okay, okay, I've basically been strutting around the house since I got back. But can't a guy bask in the glory of... 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. At times like this, cross training becomes a whole lot more appealing. Enter Jazzercise. My wife and some of her friends do Jazzercise at a local gym. They've... Continue Reading →

I Still Need a Name for My Horse…

You gotta help me out with this guys. A horse needs a name. Especially if he's running in the Derby! And, it has to be the AWESOMEST name ever! Seriously, it's a flaming horse! 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 →

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 →

Cold Breeze, Warm Sun

January has decided to be a little bipolar. One day it's freezing, the next it feels like early Spring. I certainly won't complain when it means warm sun and cool breezes! Today I had intended to run on my lunch break. I've written about how I do that, so check it out if you want... Continue Reading →
