Let’s Talk About Food, or That Stuff Vegetarians Eat.

By |

I’ve talked several times about my transition to vegetarianism being driven by simply feeling better rather than because of ethical reasons and beliefs. I wanted to take just a few moments to elaborate on some of the changes that I’ve made, and actually stuck with, that I feel really have made a huge difference in how […]

This post comes from my Original partner in crime Brian. Welcome back to the swing of things!

Skinny-fat: When someone is thin and looks great in clothes, but is all flabby underneath.

So I’ve come to a few realizations recently that are making me change my approach to losing weight.  I’ve lost a really good amount of […]

Weather Is a Funny Thing

By |

Yesterday, Buffalo returned to normalcy. It was pretty friggin’ cold and windy. Ellie and I were itching to run last night, so we strapped on our shoes and got Audrey ready to go. As soon as we stepped outside, I knew it was going to be a chilly endeavor.

It was a pretty good treat to walk […]

Maintaining the Drive

By |

Looking back at the past month, it is pretty easy to see a decline in my activity level. I went from running a minimum of four times a week down to at most three and recently, only two. I think it was easy for me to blame my travelling, which took up a week and […]

Off Topic: Brewing a Costa Rican Imperial Lager

Gross Warning: Real-Life Blisters!

By |

So, I talked a little bit about the new shoes I got, the Merrell Road Glove, and I’ve worn them every day since I picked them up. Not really for running but more for everyday use because I couldn’t stand wearing my traditionally heeled work shoes any longer. I’ve worn them at work every day, […]

Drugged-Up Pup!

By |

Yesterday my pup had to go into surgery to remove a broken tooth . . . thus, much hilarity ensued! When we picked her up, it turned out that she had refused to nap after the surgery because she was so upset to be at the vet. When we got her home, she looked up the […]

One month to the B.A.A 5K!

By |

Yesterday marked  one month to go until the 2FNs extravaganza that is the B.A.A 5K! I have been looking forward to it since  I heard my siblings were all going to register for it, and now that it is getting closer my excitement is only increasing!

Though I routinely run 5 kilometer distances now and have […]
