Day 37: Ultra Trailing

Today, I rode 20 miles on the Monon trail. The last time I road anywhere near that distance was 2003 when I was dating a woman who would go on to complete an Ironman Triathlon. Back then, our 30-40 mile Sunday “fun rides” nearly killed me. In fact, I hadn’t been on my bike since […]

Day 29: This…

Im taking the day off!!, a photo by thomas:bach:nielsen on Flickr. After 16 straight days of working out, my body finally said enough. I struggled through yesterday’s run…and my legs felt like trees this morning. Rest assured, I’m back tomorrow morning.

Day 28: Heat Index Run

On Friday, we went on a 17.8 mile bike ride because we were feeling cheeky. By Saturday morning, we’d wished we’d thought that through a little more. We knew Saturday’s Indy Runners 8-mile run was going to be brutal because it was 80 degrees at 2 am when we had to take Maxx, the dog […]

Day 20: And Then it Rained

We joined the Indy Runners Club for its Saturday 7:30 […]

Day 16: Revenge of Maxx

Day 14: Maxx sleeps, we bike

Maxx spent the day zoinked on the couch — 24 hours of farm living and 30 Huttons was too much for him — but Rebecca and I hit the Monon for a 19-mile ride from Broad Ripple to Carmel.  Events that happened: My tire, which blew out on Thursday, held up for the entire trip and […]

Day 13: We’ve Fallen

Our bodies broken just a bit, we did a last CrossFit on Thursday and then packed the car and headed south for a family reunion.  Two days of glorious nothing. Maxx ran around at the dog park and on the farm. We ate, and hung out. Sunday we begin again with a 14-mile bike ride. […]
