Should I care about toenails?

By |

Brace yourself for some riveting content, folks: today I want to talk about toenails. Now I don’t know about you, but I definitely hate clipping my toenails. I even hate when others clip my toenails during pedicures. Just typing this makes me cringe with discomfort. Alas, foot care is a necessity, especially for runners.

I know […]

From Buffalo to Baltimore, over the course of the next 28 days, Ellie, Adrienne, Jeff and I are going to attempt to cover a collective 339 miles!

Whether be by walking, running, elliptical, biking, or skate-boarding, the four of us will attempt to cover 339 miles of activity in the next 28 days. This breaks down […]

A Review of January 2019

By |

Today is the last day of the first month of 2019. To recap what my theme for 2019 is, everybody say together, consistency. I’ve struggled with my fitness goals and keeping my weight where I want it to be for the past few years now. With the arrival of 2019, Ellie and I set our […]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 30th, 2019: Snow Day!!!

By |

Buffalo rarely shuts down from a snow storm, but today is one of those days. We got the message last night that the university was shutting down, and just like when I was a kid, I ran around the house screaming my head off.

Per-usual here at 2FNS, Wednesdays mean weigh-in days. Lets dive right into […]

Understanding Heart Rate Zones

By |

The month of January has absolutely flown by, and my primary goal of being consistent has been going well. This month I was mostly focused on getting back into the routine of working out. I wasn’t really focused on my times, mileage, or stats. As we head into February, consistency is still going to be […]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 23rd, 2019: 50 to 23 . . .

By |

As the title of this post is odd, I wanted to clarify. We literally gave up 50 goals in pond hockey last night. Woof. It is a 4 on 4 format, no goalies with short nets. Typically games are about 20 to 30 goals or so . . . so we got beat bad.

Anyway, Welcome […]

Back on Cross-Country Skis.

By |

Ever since my days at Garnet Hill as a kid, I’ve loved cross-country skiing. Perhaps it was the shuttle that drove you back to the lodge from the bottom, or the neatly groomed tracks, but whatever it was, I loved spending the day on my skis up in the Adirondacks. So, with snow in the […]

Overall, we had a mixed week. That’s okay, because one bad week never hurt anyone! Consistency […]

Weigh-In Wednesday January 9th, 2019: Go Go Go!

By |

Hello Everyone! Another Wednesday is here, and you know what that means, the dreaded weigh-in! Let’s just dive right in to the main event, weights over-time.

Not bad everyone! I know getting through the weekend stalled a lot of our efforts, but no one gained week-to-week! The hardest part for me personally is saying yes to […]

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 […]
