March Challenge! Baltimore Inner Harbor to Red River Beach!

By |

Happy Friday, and more importantly, happy March!!! We are almost to spring, although the recent dumping of snow in the northeast has us feeling otherwise. As February wrapped up, we finished our challenge strong and made it from Buffalo to Baltimore! This month, in order to encourage my parents to get their butts moving a […]

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 […]

50×4: Ohio! A Christmas Story 10K

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)!

I’ve been in denial about my fitness needs…

By |

When Jon first started 2 Fat Nerds many moons ago, he did it because he needed some outside accountability to help him realize his goals. The 2 Fat Nerds platform helped him become a writer, a half marathoner, a triathlon-er, and an inspiration to a lot of people, including myself. He worked hard over years […]

We Finished the Whole30.

By |

Exciting news! We jumped on the bandwagon and did the Whole30! Aaaand we didn’t hate it . . . at least not the entire time. What started as a way for Jon and I to fit better into a kilt and a bridesmaid dress, respectively, turned into a pretty habit-changing experience.

I borrowed the Whole30 book […]

Reflecting on Five Years of Running

By |

Five years ago today, Ellie and I ran our first official 5k road race. We did a very small local run sponsored by Medaille College. Ellie had run for years prior to this on and off, while I had really just started to do so to get in shape with the blog. Both of us were […]

The February Challenge Results!

By |

We started a new challenge in February to run the days of the month. Last night as I finished up the last four miles I needed, making for a total of eleven miles in two days, I thought about how much I actually liked this challenge. It pushed me out the door into a rather […]

February Challenge!

By |

In keeping with the theme of last month, I wanted to again challenge everyone in February to cover 29 miles in 29 days. However, because some of us (myself NOT included) did this with relative ease, I want everyone to at minimum to cover the same distance as they did in January. 

So, those of us […]

Think Happy Thoughts

By |

Jeff and I got back from our holiday traveling late enough last night where there was no way we were going to the grocery store, so today I was forced to buy lunch at work (the only thing in our fridge is spoiled eggnog and butter). I ordered a gyro for delivery from a cafe […]
