Stuff & Things: A Life Update

Last time we spoke (and by "spoke," I obviously mean "I wrote some words and you maybe read them"),  I had recently returned from a trip to Colorado/Utah and was in the midst of buying a house. Here are a few pictures to jog your memory… Aside from closing on the house, a lot of... Continue Reading →

Not a Training Recap

"No recap this week," Doug half-asked, half-tsked at me as I sat and pouted about falling off the boulder for what seemed like the 43,874,295th time Saturday morning. "I know…" I started to sigh say before Tim chimed in with, "no time!" and changed the subject. While I appreciated Tim's recognition of how busy I've... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 7

I still don't know where all that motivation came from during Week 6, but it certainly didn't stick around very long. Week 7, while not totally terrible, saw me slip back into my standard half-hearted way of training and was my lowest mileage week yet (at least as far as running is concerned). Oops. Part...

NEHM Training: Week 6

Monday Plan: Rest or cross-train  |  Actual: Barre That Groupon I mentioned last week expired this Monday, so the plan was to just double up on classes... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 5

Throughout the first month of training, I had been pretty good about updating these recap posts on a daily basis—usually right after the workout while the details were still fresh in my mind—so that they'd be ready to publish on Monday. That ended in Week 5. (I can't decide if it happened sooner or later... Continue Reading →

NEHM Training: Week 4

If you'd asked me a month ago if I thought I would still be keeping up with these training recaps, I would have laughed at you so hard. But here we are. Four weeks in and I'm still staying on top of it. My biggest concern is that nobody actually cares how I'm training, but... Continue Reading →

Irritating

"How does it feel to be the most irritating person on the planet?" Tim asked as he lowered me off the first 5.10 of the morning, the one he couldn't quite finish just a few minutes earlier. I responded in what felt like the most appropriate way possible: a half-assed attempt at pretending it had... Continue Reading →

Year in Review / Looking Ahead

And just like that, it's New Year's Eve. (How did that happen so fast?!) Another year has come and gone, so now I'm supposed to take some time to look back at everything that's happened over the past 365 days and start making plans for my next year of life, right?Well, fuck that. Pretty much... Continue Reading →
