Run716 2018 In The Books!

By |

On Sunday, Ellie and I woke up bright and early for the second annual Run 716 race in downtown Buffalo. It is so refreshing running a race locally, and also not having to cart around a bike, wet suit, and everything else involved in a triathlon. So much easier!

Last year Ellie and I set a […]

Greek Fest 5k 2018 In The Books!

By |

This past Friday we ran the Greek Fest 5k. This year was pretty cool because it was a return for the race after a four-year hiatus. It is a great local run, and we are glad it is back. This year was also organized by a friend of ours, who did a fantastic job of […]

Balancing Triathlon Training

By |

Swim, Bike, Run. Three back to back workouts set up in that particular order to limit potential injuries due to fatigue. Or at least that is what I figure the reason to be. Getting ready for this type of event is an interesting way to get in shape because really, you actually do have to […]

Signs from Above, or My Girth?

By |

Today started out like any other day. Ellie and I were the usual 30 minutes late, and traffic was moving well. The commute in was uneventful, and I even got to run an errand before work. It was all fine and dandy until I sat down at my desk. The universe then sent me message, […]

New Year, Playoffs, and Looking Forward to 2018

By |

Happy 2018!
I want to wish everyone a great new year and happy holiday season. The past few weeks were a ton of fun, full of friends family, and exciting changes on the horizon. Also, THE BILLS MADE THE PLAYOFFS. Who could have asked for a better ending to an otherwise bizarre year.

I think it’s clear […]

Why We Ditched the Boilermaker, and a Recap of Run 716!

By |

Last time I wrote a blog post, I was covering our early stages of training leading up to the Boilermaker 2017. As many of you know, my entire family ended up transferring our bibs and registered our first (unofficial) DNS.

Coming to the decision to drop out was not easy. The Boilermaker is one of our […]

Carley said I can eat bagels and donuts.

By |

The title is not fake news. He really said it.

I’ve been struggling with personal training recently. I have seen decent gains on my upper-body strength, but my weight-loss and discipline have been very much lacking. I just wasn’t feeling it. At the start of March, we moved to three days a week, which was supposed to get […]
