Running, Intervals, and Server Downtime!

By |

First! The server exploded, sorry about that. We had a prolonged downtime this week (the first since starting the blog up!) due to some hardware failures. Once the hardware was fixed, I had a heck of a time getting the settings working with our network again. Let me know if there are any lingering effects!

So, […]

Tri In The Buff 2018 Complete!

By |

Over the weekend I competed in my first triathlon of the season, Tri In The Buff! The race was a lot of fun, despite the 90+ degree weather. The swim was a little harder than I anticipated. Lake Erie has a bit more of a current and the waves were stronger than I expected. But […]

Synchronized Swimming Looks Impossible

By |

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 […]

It’s Cold, So Skate!

By |

Over the long weekend I took advantage of our fall back into freezing cold temperatures. The ponds froze back up to decent depths, so we got out our skates and had some fun. This was the first time that I’ve skated on a frozen pond in many years, and it was a lot of fun. […]

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 […]
