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.

oh nothing, just painting a giant wall sized cow mural at our new work digs, as one does. and nooooo, i’m not painting the whole thing. all the employees have an opportunity to come paint as much or as little as they want. then artist valerie miller from steel cow goes over it and makes it look amazing.

you can follow along with the ov employees painting barbara on steel cow’s facebook page.

12 miles! or almost half of a 50K ultramarathon!

12 miles! or almost half of a 50K ultramarathon!

i didn’t wake up on the first day or spring thinking i’d run 12 miles. in fact, when i woke up i thought i’d enjoy a rare Do Nothing Day with the end of the regular hockey season and no pressure to drive all around the upper midwest and sit in frigid hockey arenas. i guess i don’t do nothing very well ( which i don’t think is always a positive thing ).

i stiiiiiill haven’t committed to anything but it sure seems like i’m training for something. i could have easily ran 15 or 18 miles.

we got a bit of snow last night. i wonder if this will be my last run of the year with the white stuff on the ground.
