a father’s day power tool gift from odin!

a father's day power tool gift from odin!

odin gave me a mini circular saw because he saw an ad where it was featured making short work of stair treads. i can’t imagine what he has in mind!

( i need to make a circular staircase for the treehouse deck because we’ve learned over the years that many children and adults discover they have a latent fear of heights when climbing the 15 foot ladder to get to the treehouse deck. )

my fastest 15 mile run ever.

my fastest 15 mile run ever.

on pace for a 3:40 marathon which is fast for me and my 6 foot 4 inch frame. coincidence or not that i’m getting faster with age and i’m refueling with fuel? i think not! ( yes i’m “always on” as the fuel brand manager :-) )

and no, i still haven’t signed up for anything but i seem to be in the “run at least a half marathon once a week” stage of whatever it is that i’m training for.

apparently approaching peak ranginess.

apparently approaching peak ranginess.

after months of running 40 miles, doing 400 pushups and hundreds of pull-ups a week and dropping 16 pounds while building a non-trivial amount of lean muscle mass, someone described the current status of my 6 foot 4 inch frame as “rangy”.

i’ll probably drop another 10 pounds or so and continue to build muscle mass as a i train for whatever event it is that i haven’t decided i’m going to do yet.
