Roadkill… A Hierarchy

The other day I was out running along my normal route when a couple things happened to me that I really wanted to share. These things only reminded me that there is a food chain to everything. Now, safety hawks would tell me that running with full headphones is probably not a good idea, I…

Runner’s Crack

Some of you know that I’ve picked up running. If you’ve been hiding under a rock you may have missed: Fat Man Running Or even: Fat Man Records Video While Running I’ve been working my butt off, running, and I’ve never felt better… Except for the constant ache in my legs because I’m stupid enough…

Accomplishment

I think I might have a role in motivational speaking. Today I ran two new personal “bests.” A new personal best for distance. 5.3 miles and a personal best set of average minutes per mile at 11.31. It was really tough, but I have set a goal for myself and I’m currently reaching for that…

It, like me, is new and improved.

I just wanted to share a couple of things. First, as you may be aware. I’ve been punishing myself by going to the gym. It’s really starting to pay off. I’ve seen a drop of about 30 pounds since I started. I’ve also had to stop wearing some of my clothes because I look like…

Rock Out/Work Out (Music Edition)

I’ve been working out for about a month now. Yes, I’ve noticed some nice little results. I work out for about 45 minutes of cardio each time and I push progressively harder. It’s a little tough but when I dig into my music collection to power through, it always helps. I wanted to share my…
