On Tuesday, I called Ellie and asked her to stop on her way home to pick up a book that I heard about on NPR. She dutifully obliged, and that night I sat down to dive right in to Gretchen Reynolds’s The First 20 Minutes: Surprising Science Reveals How We Can Exercise Better, Train Smarter, Live […]
Another week gone by, another weigh-in day to log in the record books!
New June Challenge Coming!
After taking a break in May, I’ve come up with a new Challenge that I think will either be super easy, or painfully, painfully hard.. we shall see! Stay tuned for more information!
This week we added another 163 kilometers, getting […]
The Freihofer 5k is officially less than a week to go! This Saturday (3 days and 18 hours give or take!), several 2FNs members will be taking part in the 34th annual Run For Women.

Note the scale is in Log base 10. . . . I think it makes […]
Short post today, as I am the only one in the lab and it is busy!
Last night Ellie and I caught a two-hour American Ninja Warrior show. All I can really say is that those people are pretty ridiculous. The amount of physical strength they have is unbelievable. I can’t imagine how many hours they must spend […]
This past Friday was Bike to Work Day 2012. I found that out early Friday morning as I was getting ready for work while listening to NPR. Naturally I decided the only logical thing to do was bust out my bike and head off to work.
The morning ride was pretty uneventful as it takes only about […]
This post comes from my lovely wife Ellie, enjoy!
You know that saying, “Dress for the job you want, not the job you have”? Well, I think we can apply that to running, too. Over my years of running on and off, I’ve collected a nice sample size of running outfits off of which I can […]
As some of you may know, a major title in the gaming world was released on May 15th. Diablo 3 was officially released, and the dreams of many reminiscent gamers of the good ol’ days of hack-and-slash grind fests were realized.
