Battle of the Bulge ’17

I’ve been ignoring the elephant in the virtual room lately…me. Last year, my illness really pulled off the weight to the sound of 20 pounds. The only good side effect of losing one’s appetite with occasional vomiting. The weight came … Continue reading

I’m making badges for all my running accomplishments but today I passed the 2500-mile barrier. Overall I am behind schedule thanks to a couple weak years in which I had jelly legs and stomach issues preventing me from adding to … Continue reading

The excuses finally ran out and I made it back to the gym today for running. I’m within 100 miles of the current target too. I could’ve gotten back into the groove if it weren’t daylight savings time getting in … Continue reading

Running is back on track!

Another vacation goal started, I won’t say achieved until I have done it every day but arrival (check) and departure (practically done because there’s no time). I could’ve tried when I returned to work. Nah! One crisis at a time. … Continue reading

Seattle-Paizo achieved!

I would put this running goal about four months behind the schedule I was keeping if I were applying last year’s pace. This year has been just rough across the board, even on the exercise front which should be a breeze … Continue reading

The annual health screening and exercise comeback

The results came in and they were ugly. I think I also forgot to do a screening in 2014. Either way, I fell off the wagon. My weight is back up alongside my cholesterol. On the upside, my glucose (aka, the … Continue reading
