Holy crap, I’ve hired a personal trainer! This is something that I’ve wanted to do for years and I’m finally doing it!!! My A goals are pretty simple: Strengthen my shoulder so that it stops being such a sissy. Lose weight and become leaner. Form a solid weight lifting routine. Be (stay) flexible. Be a […]

Ragnar Chicago is only two weeks away. TWO WEEKS!!!! I thought I re-run an edited post about packing for Ragnar to celebrate. The first year I ran Ragnar Chicago I packed like an idiot. I was gone from Thursday evening until Saturday evening, I had enough clothes for a week. I also had three pairs of running […]

Remember how I declared that this was the summer I was going to ride my bicycle? On Sunday I went for a 16 mile bike ride. It was so great to get a bike ride in at the beginning of May! This was my first real outside bike ride of the year. I mean, I’ve […]
