Synchronized Swimming Looks Impossible

By |

Last night Ellie and I were at the pool getting some laps in and working on my abysmal somersault. Like literally it took me over thirty minutes to be able to do one. While we were swimming there was a full team of synchronized swimmers working on learning an underwater maneuver. We couldn’t help but […]

Garmin Connect Revamped

By |

As i’m recently back on the wagon to this whole fitness thing, I’ve been using my trusty Garmin Forerunner 10. This watch has been by far the most indispensable pieces of training equipment I’ve had over the past 5 or more years. Thanks parents for the present!

Garmin watches sync up to a system called Garmin […]

Balancing Triathlon Training

By |

Swim, Bike, Run. Three back to back workouts set up in that particular order to limit potential injuries due to fatigue. Or at least that is what I figure the reason to be. Getting ready for this type of event is an interesting way to get in shape because really, you actually do have to […]

So Many Perennials

By |

Ellie and I have decided that this summer is going to be all about getting our house and garden into tip top shape. We’ve felt now that we’ve been here a couple of years, it is time to start making improvements. Drawing inspiration from one of the greatest shows of all time, Big Dreams Small […]

Oh God I’m 30.

By |

To start, what an absolute whirlwind of a couple of months (and especially the last couple of weeks). Life is being life, more-so recently than ever. To get through the worst news first — We have had a huge family loss with the passing of our sister from Italy, who left us completely devastated and […]

Signs from Above, or My Girth?

By |

Today started out like any other day. Ellie and I were the usual 30 minutes late, and traffic was moving well. The commute in was uneventful, and I even got to run an errand before work. It was all fine and dandy until I sat down at my desk. The universe then sent me message, […]

Cleaning Out My Closet!

By |

Sorry, this post isn’t a tell all of my deepest darkest secrets. I literally spent the weekend cleaning out my closet, the basement, and doing some renovations at my parents house in Albany. All those squats must have helped because despite going up and down the stairs a billion times, I can still walk today!
