I'm at my hotel for the Warrior Dash. My sweetie has come along to heckle. Thing 2 is supposed to be here, but her ankyldosing spondylitis/fibromalgia/lyme disease struck hard today. After breakfast, I dropped her off at her apartment so she cou... Read more

Here's the deal: I got home from work at 2am and was back in at noon. I couldn't sleep, forgot to eat breakfast, and did everything wrong. Went through McD's drive through for burgers and a shake on the way into work and I just polished off a co... Read more
Thank God for Races....

If I didn't have races to look forward to this year, I would be at about 450lbs and climbing. Here's the deal: in the last few months, a good friend has had to resume chemo because the cancer they thought had been confined to his colon and liver... Read more

Yesterday, I found out something that I've suspected for awhile. My dad has cancer. A couple weeks ago he had to go into the hospital for a procedure. He didn't want anyone to know. The procedure, apparently, was a biopsy. My sister called me ye... Read more

I did my first duathlon today: the Greenswell Dirty Duathlon at Alum Creek State Park just north of Columbus. I had a blast. The race had two 1.8 mile trail running segments with an 11 mile road cycling segment in between. I was in the Cly... Read more

Earlier today, I did the Norwood Relay for Life. By earlier, I mean from midnight until slightly before 2 am. Later today, I will be going up to Centerville to heckle my g/f as she walks in the Relay up there. This is an amazing event. If you'v... Read more

Friday, I went into work early and got off early. About the time I got my weekend plans made, pulled the covers up over my head, and closed my eyes, I got a text from my sister. This it, verbatim: "You know about Dad's surgery tomorrow, right?".... Read more

Sunday, May 13, 2012      4 comments

This past week was quite the study in contrasts. There were days when I absolutely nailed my nutrition. Lots of fruits and veggies, limited fat, fair amount of lean protein, etc. Then there were days where I was all over the map. Exercise was mu... Read more
5/7/12---Well, That Plan Went Up In Smoke, But Rockabilly Saves The Day....
Tuesday, May 08, 2012      3 comments

Last night, I thought I had a foolproof Plan A and Plan B for my workout. Plan A: evening run, then a trip to the gym for a soak in the hot tub. Plan B: got to the gym for an elliptical session, followed by a hot tub soak. Three little words tra... Read more

Last year, after training fairly consistently with three or four runs of 9 plus miles, I ran the Flying Pig Half Marathon in 3:06:52. The weather was perfect--cool and rainy, and almost immediately I found what I thought was my zone and just cru... Read more

Tomorrow, I'm waddling my way through the Flying Pig Half Marathon. It'll be hot, humid, nasty...in other words, perfect conditions. I will get down there around 5:30 for the 6:30 start. Find my corral, mingle amongst the other piggies, give my... Read more

So I meet my sweetie for breakfast at the godawful early hour of noon. Had a delightful meal, pleasant talk, shared my bacon with her, chatted with the owner, then she and I went about our daily errands. My plan was to do a mini grocery trip (ap... Read more
5/2/12--DOMS? Where Are You?
Wednesday, May 02, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday I went for a 5.2 mile run. I had fun. I didn't want to stop. Today, because I hadn't run in a bit, I was sure I would be sore. It is now 23:45 (there are 24 hours in a day, not 2 sets of 12 hours) and I have yet to get sore. My back wa... Read more

I went for a run today. It started off as a 2 miler, became a 2.5 miler, morphed into a 3 miler, then a 4 miler, and 5 miler and I finally stopped at 5.2 miles. There were 2 reasons I stopped: 1) it was time to go to work, and 2) though I start... Read more
