Pushing The Weight

Goals… Wednesday (Aug 5) – Squishy. Not crispy do much, but squishy. My body is still trying to figure out what part of the country it’s in and I am just starting to feel the ache from yesterday’s insanity. My brain is foggy… bigtime. As I rolled out and greeted the World this morning, I was contemplating the running challenge....

Top of the Heap

Living Dangerously, But Can’t Breathe Face Down Monday (July 6) – Well I am certainly feeling Saturday’s 40K when the alarm went off at 430am. Yeah, you read that right.

Today is another birthday at @CrossFitCanuck (geez, there was a whole...

When Your Bodywash is Trying to Kill You

Normal Dial Bodywash… Or so you would think Friday (April 10) – So Bruce (you remember Bruce, my coworker who ran his first Half Marathon last year) brought in a book called ‘How to Know if Your Cat is Trying to Kill You’ in to work. I didn’t read it, but I felt that the author caught the disposition of...
