About Jono

Since starting 2 Fat Nerds in 2011: 4 half marathons, 1 triathlon, many 5ks and a whole host of new friends made. Fitness is more than just exercise. Finding a good balance between healthy eating, exercise and a strong community of friends is what this blog is all about.

In less than a few months’ time, I will be sitting with Ellie and our friend Jen in the hot springs of Iceland. While that sounds amazing, and I am looking forward to it, I have quite the beer belly going that promptly needs to be addressed. Aside from diet and exercise in general, the […]

Diving into Cycling with Zwift! What is FTP???

By |

A couple of months ago I started using an indoor cycling program called Zwift. For the full review of my setup and my initial impression, here’s the post. I took a little bit of break at the start of December, but since the New Year I am back in the saddle, literally.

Week 1 Success, on […]

Tim Hortons: My Kryptonite.

By |

A little bit of backstory to set the stage. Ellie and I were tipped off to a powerful budgeting tool called YNAB (You Need a Budget) by our friend Justin back in 2014. To simplify how it works, it is basically like using the envelop budgeting system, where every dollar earned is put into an […]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 2nd, 2019: New Year, New Us!

By |

With the new year, my number one resolution is to put real time and energy into the blog again. To do this, it really starts with the Weigh-In Wednesday posts. The whole point of this blog was accountability from the very beginning, and not doing the weigh-in post is not a very good way to […]

Christmas on Cape Cod! Happy New Year!

By |

On Christmas morning, Ellie, Audrey, and I piled into our new Subaru (woo new car!) and drove east to the ocean. This would be Audrey’s first time on Cape Cod, which has been a bucket list item for Ellie and me since we adopted her eight years ago. Finally we had the time off (or […]

By |

Welcome to the inaugural post of a new series by Ellie and me. We’re calling it 50×4, which is short for Fifty Bagels, Fifty Dates, Fifty Races, Fifty States! That’s right, folks. Ellie and I are going to attempt to race in all fifty states (and D.C. and maybe some other places)!

Weigh-In Wednesday November 28th, 2018: Post-Turkey Day!

I am going to be kind, and not post the aftermath of Thanksgiving for everyone who submitted this week. Happy Holidays!

Better get moving for next week though, because I’m going to put you all on blast 🙂

Baltimore City Turkey Trot 2018!

By |

On Thanksgiving, Ellie, Jeff, Adrienne and myself woke up to a brisk Baltimore morning and made our way over to the Waverly YMCA for a good ole’ fashioned turkey trot! None of us have been running, so expectations were low, but we had a blast!

Before the race, we did a quick tour of the inside […]
