No, I am not going anywhere. I am still doing my project, still bettering myself, and still making progress. No, this is more about my running and how I am progressing. As I said from the beginning, I am going to keep my expectations low, but today proved that I can get back to where … Continue reading Week 3 – Day 4: I’ll Be Back
This weekend was full of all sorts of stuff ranging from fun, exciting and awesome to terrible. It's probably really no different than most weekends. Good things happen, bad things happen, but this weekend there were a few more things to talk about. Friday was a day of travel for me which meant that I … Continue reading Days 313, 314 & 315… Travel, Trek and Ticket
...and here comes pride in the backstretch... I remember that song being done by Sawyer Brown. I guess I should have known that it was previously done by a legend. I'm not a huge George Jones fan, nor a country fan, but I do know a legend when I see one. Friday was a … Continue reading Days 306, 307 & 308… The Race Is On
Since I've moved to karate and weight lifting lately, I've sort of neglected the running. I know I've been trying to get up early in the morning to run but I've not been committed enough to actually do it lately. Guess that needs to change. I've committed to doing two 5K events over the next … Continue reading Day 304… Gotta Get Back To Running
Only I was more abusive this time. This all stems back to the "steps" challenge that is happening at my job. It also ties in with the fact that I am - as I told my wife - a competitive douchebag. The guy who is winning the challenge at work is winning everything. He will … Continue reading Day 201, 202 & 203… I Did It Again…
Never in my life have I hated those words. Are those even words? Is that a phrase? I don't know, but at this point I hate them anyway. Wednesday is meant to be hump-day, the middle of the week, the day where the end of your miserable job function for another period is drawing closer … Continue reading Day 192… Bring The Roof Down!
Saturday was the big day I was talking about all week. In case you missed it, I had a race. And boy was it cold. I believe it was close to 33 degrees (if not colder) and the snow decided to start falling. Did that deter me? No it didn't. My wife and I and … Continue reading Days 188 & 189… Mustache Dache
I never really thought about having to do races or exercising outside. But we got the opportunity to practice that on Monday. While it wasn't snowing or raining or anything like that, the wind was blowing about a thousand miles an hour... give or take. It was cold, it was windy, it wasn't fun. But … Continue reading Day 169… Weathering the Storm
This weekend was full of them. I wish I had a way to know exactly how many miles I have traveled lately as it sure seems to be a lot. This weekend in particular my wife and I did a 5K on top of all the exercise we are doing. We walked 3.2 miles on … Continue reading Day 166, 167 & 168… So Many Miles Traveled
Well, a personal record. But isn't that what records are? Yeah, someone can juggle longer than I can, someone can swallow more glass than I can, but does it really matter in the end? Maybe. They are all in record books to be immortalized while I'm just me. But anyway... I made it 5 miles … Continue reading Day 158… Another Record!
