Fascinating Look Into A Professional Triathlete’s Budget

By |

I came across a SUPER interesting (ok I am a nerd) post about income / cost of being a professional triathlete. Professional triathlete Cody Beals, shoutout to Guelph, Ontario, has posted each year of his professional career his income and expenditures on his blog, and it is a really interesting read.

Triathlon isn't exactly the [...]

By |

No matter how light a light beer is, too many beers makes for a bad weigh-in. As usual on this blog, Wednesday is for stat checking! If you would like to contribute and get involved, feel free to leave a comment, create an account and get moving!

Labatt Blue Pond Hockey Tournament Weekend!

By |

Over the weekend, the Pine Riders threw on our skates and competed in the Buffalo Labatt Blue Pond Hockey tournament. The outcome . . . was absolutely less than stellar.

Yes . . . we gave up 87 goals. The Pine Riders went 0-3 on the weekend...

We got absolutely annihilated. To say we were perhaps [...]

Switching Gears (lol): Training Plan For February

By |

I cracked myself up with the title of today's post. I've been bicycling quite a bit on Zwift over the past six weeks, closing out my first full FTP Build program. With only two workouts to go, it is about that time that Ellie and I are switching gears (get it? like a bike gear?) [...]

Woke up to incredibly icy streets and trees today! Be careful out there, everyone!

As per the norm here at 2 Fat Nerds, each Wednesday is a weigh-in day, where we publicly shame encourage our members to share their workouts and weight numbers for the past week. It's all about accountability, and earning those sweet anti-fat [...]

To Train, or Not To Train at Race Distance?

By |

I came across an interesting tweet from Hal Higdon, a juggernaut in the sport of running. Famous for both his writing at Runners World, coaching, as well as racing in the sport himself. I thought i'd share it here, as well as my own experiences at the half-marathon distance.

To summarize - he is a believer [...]

I Marie Kondoed My Clothes!

By |

Happy annual day of annoyance that follows a Patriots super bowl win.

On Saturday, Ellie and I watched the first episode of Tidying Up With Marie Kondo on Netflix. For those of you who are unaware of the latest sensation sweeping the nation, Marie Kondo is a professional organizer from Japan who encourages people to declutter [...]
