Nice and Easy

Now before you make a crack about me coloring my hair, save it and remember that I’m rocking the chrome dome. Nice and easy is referring to the pace of today’s spin session. Tavia, er, I mean Jillian has made it clear that for the remainder of my 30 Day Challenge she will be putting the screws to me and...

Tonight on Jeopardy

And now I’m spent… For the first time in forever, I hit the daily double (workout wise) and hopefully it’s just the beginning of a lot more of them.  Under the guidance of Tavia (in preparation for the Ride for Heart and general health), I’m hitting the bike 3-4 times a week in addition to the 4 CrossFit classes I’m...

Only a State of Mind

Thanks to @SarahBassels for the photo. So let’s talk diet.  After Saturday’s WOD, @Keilshammer and I met @hoodieruns and @Ed_Markward (and Kevin) for a lunch at Stack.  If you haven’t been, stop reading and go there NOW. BBQ/Smokehouse of the stars, Stack has some great food (and a homemade Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce that is amazing). Eating paleo when dining...
