Many runners and triathletes use music, audio books, podcasts, or other audible media to help them through their workouts. These can provide a necessary distraction from the drudgery of long workouts. For some reason though, I actually don’t use them at all. For a long while now, probably several years, I stopped using headphones. It […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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)!

Update on the Zwift Sessions! A couple of weeks ago I did a post about biking in secret in my basement using a system called Zwift. Zwift for those of you who haven’t read my last post, is an interactive virtual biking system that uses sensors on my actual road bike to estimate distance, speed, […]
Last night Ellie and I were at the pool getting some laps in and working on my abysmal somersault. Like literally it took me over thirty minutes to be able to do one. While we were swimming there was a full team of synchronized swimmers working on learning an underwater maneuver. We couldn’t help but […]
Since it is a brand new year, and we here at 2FNS love to keep track of numbers and publicly shame ourselves, I wanted to quickly let everyone know that on Wednesday the Weigh-In Wednesday post will be making a return!
Historically, every Wednesday I collect information using our tracking system. Workouts can be logged and […]
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 […]
