harder. better. faster. stronger.

today i ran 10 miles faster than i ever have before. i averaged 8.5 minute miles and on the last 5 i was running 8 minute mile pace. i could have easily run the entire 10 miles at a 8 minute mile pace. this means i shaved 10 minutes off my 10 mile run time […]

10 mile run with 10 mph winds and +5°F degree wind chill. in. a. snow storm.

i guess at least it was above zero and no snow blindness! it didn’t sustain snowing at this intensity for long but the wind whipping around the steady snow fall was, um, fun? there’s a road there somewhere! when i’m out in weather like this, i get looks from drivers that i think means something […]

8 mile run. 15 mph winds. sub-zero windchills. snow blindness. looking for a tauntaun to crawl into.

after a year of keeping 110 pounds off, finally trimming the wardrobe.

it’s coming up on a year since i lost 110 pounds by running over 2,400 miles and i’ve managed to keep the weight off by continuing to watch what i eat, weighing myself every day, and continuing to run even in crazy cold weather. i’m cautiously optimistic that i’ve found the weight loss recipe that […]

the seven minute scientific fitness program.

i’m still working on meeting my 100 consecutive push-up and 200 consecutive sit-up goal. it’s hard to believe i’ve done almost 4,000 push-ups and 7,000 sit-ups over the past 12 weeks! it might be a few more weeks before i actually hit the goal, but then i’ll definitely be looking for a “maintenance” fitness routine […]

an update on phase II fitness – stage I. 100 push-ups and 200 sit-ups.

i’ve been continuing with my phase II fitness program attempting to get to 100 consecutive push-ups and 200 consecutive sit-ups and it’s hard – especially the push-ups. the push-up program i’m following is a 6 week program and i’ve been repeating the last week for a couple of weeks and can’t seem to get past […]

80 weeks later – I LOST 106 POUNDS!

4 weeks after hitting the hundred pounds lost mark, i’ve lost 6 more pounds which means, through the magic of math, i’ve lost 106 pounds! according to the BMI calculators, at 189 pounds i have a body mass index of 23 which puts me in the the 23rd weight percentile for my 6’4″ frame and […]
