Buffalo Shamrock Run 2019!

By |

On Saturday, Ellie and I braved the cold and driving snow to complete our first ever Shamrock Run in the Buffalo first ward community. It was, to summarize simply, awesome!

Pretty bib!

We had a pretty late night prior to racing, so we were super fortunate that the race didn’t start until noon. Although I don’t recommend […]

First Long Run of 2019!

By |

Ellie and I started the building process toward our first major road race of the season, which means one thing: a weekend long run. I am happy to report it wasn’t too bad! The weather was near perfect for a February run, which is quite remarkable considering less than twelve hours later, we had fierce […]

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?) […]

Weigh-In Wednesday February 6, 2019: Ice in the Air!

By |

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 […]

Lake Effect 1, Buffalo 0. Home Gym to the Rescue!

By |

I love Buffalo at the end of January. The Lake Erie monster knocks on our door step, making everyone rush home from work early and grab a six-pack of their favorite beer. Our local politicans even instruct our city’s residents on how much to buy, based on the late Mayor Jimmy Griffin.

Winter arrives tonight. Nothing […]

Skating at Ives Park!

By |

Over the weekend, hockey-mentor Julien called me up and said we were heading to the ponds for some pick up hockey. Who was I to disagree? I grabbed my gear, including my Garmin watch, and met up with him at Ives Park in Tonawanda. To my surprise, this is a rather popular spot for some […]

Cabins in Allegany!

By |

Over the weekend, Ellie, a group of our friends, and I headed down south of Buffalo to Allegany State Park. Allegany is right on the New York-Pennsylvania border, nestled in to the hills of Cattaraugus County. Despite a prediction of heavy snowfall, we braved the elements and had an awesome weekend.

A weather forecast of sub-zero […]

Ride or Die: Winter Running

By |

I’ve seen *~*beauty gurus*~* on YouTube publish “Ride or Die” videos with their favorite makeup and skin care products (and get overly excited when we have a product in common), so I thought it would be interesting to figure out what my all-time-favorite, can’t-live-without-it winter running accoutrement are. I’ve landed on my top five.

I’m sure […]

Yeast Confections: Brewing an Oktoberfest Märzen

By |

This is the first post in a new series we have lovingly titled Yeast Confections! We are going to document our brewing, baking, kombucha-making, and microbial explorations semiregularly!

The cycle of beer continues with the successful depletion of our Scotch Ale (a.k.a. Girvan Bevy). With that, I called up the crew to make a new batch […]
