Weigh-In Wednesday November 14th, 2018: HELLO

By |

Remember a time when each Wednesday, I would harass all of my friends, family, and loose acquaintances for how much they weighed? Male or female, old and young, no one was spared from the potential public embarrassment that was this blog. Fun times right? I’ve decided that one of the things I wanted to get […]

Updated Recipe Index!

By |

Just a quick note on a change regarding the recipe section of the blog. In an effort to make finding a recipe for a particular meal, say breakfast for instance, I’ve added an indexing system so that it is a little bit easier to find what we have. Here’s the link! 

This system is based on […]

Zwift Workouts Are Kicking My Butt!

By |

Update on the Zwift Sessions! A couple of weeks ago I did a post about biking in secret in my basement using a system called Zwift. Zwift for those of you who haven’t read my last post, is an interactive virtual biking system that uses sensors on my actual road bike to estimate distance, speed, […]

Getting Zwift! My first steps into indoor bike training.

By |

Hey everyone! I have a confession. Ellie and I have been secretly working out pretty consistently for the past couple of weeks. She has been doing weekly sessions at Reform Fitness, which as our friends found out for Ellie’s birthday, is a super difficult workout. She’s also been using the elliptical quite a bit at […]

Run716 2018 In The Books!

By |

On Sunday, Ellie and I woke up bright and early for the second annual Run 716 race in downtown Buffalo. It is so refreshing running a race locally, and also not having to cart around a bike, wet suit, and everything else involved in a triathlon. So much easier!

Last year Ellie and I set a […]

Running, Intervals, and Server Downtime!

By |

First! The server exploded, sorry about that. We had a prolonged downtime this week (the first since starting the blog up!) due to some hardware failures. Once the hardware was fixed, I had a heck of a time getting the settings working with our network again. Let me know if there are any lingering effects!

So, […]

Over the weekend a collection of brave souls from Buffalo headed over to Seneca Lake to compete in the Mini-mussel triathlon! Ellie, Miranda and Hannah formed up the Buffalo Gal’s relay team, while myself, Brindy and Alex competed in the full sprint triathlon. It was an awesome weekend full of friends, racing, wineries and competitive […]

Tri In The Buff 2018 Complete!

By |

Over the weekend I competed in my first triathlon of the season, Tri In The Buff! The race was a lot of fun, despite the 90+ degree weather. The swim was a little harder than I anticipated. Lake Erie has a bit more of a current and the waves were stronger than I expected. But […]

Greek Fest 5k 2018 In The Books!

By |

This past Friday we ran the Greek Fest 5k. This year was pretty cool because it was a return for the race after a four-year hiatus. It is a great local run, and we are glad it is back. This year was also organized by a friend of ours, who did a fantastic job of […]
