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 →

Mantra Practice, Weeks 2 & 3

I'm half way plus a day through my 40-day mantra practice, and I've gotten way into it. It feels a lot less like a chore these days than it did at the beginning, which I suppose makes sense given that it takes about 21ish days for an [easy] change in your routine to become a... Continue Reading →

84 Days

I've never liked training plans. Partly because I have a really hard time following them and I typically hate doing things I'm not good at. And partly because I don't like being told what to do—especially when an inanimate object is doing the telling. But mostly it's that first thing. Despite my general distaste for...

Five Weeks in 1500 Words

Please forgive my atrocious lack of posting lately. When you "write" for a living, it makes it harder to also still want to write for fun when you get home. That's the excuse I'm going with, anyway. (I recognize that it's actually a terrible excuse, but the alternative is to be totally honest with myself and... Continue Reading →
