We’ve been so tied up with the start of school, training, the wedding, and life that I’ve forgotten to write about the 90-in-90 even though I’ve not forgotten to live it. The girl and I have continued our CrossFit ways: twice a week and once on the weekend. We’re debating bumping up our membership so… Read More

You’re never told the bad things that happen when you become a dog owner. Those you have to find out yourself. This week, we had the joy of a dog that had worms. I’ll spare you the details, but let’s just say every two hours for 5 days our boy had little gifts for us.… Read More

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… Read More

We just returned from several days down in Brown County where I managed to sprain my wrist (Crossfit Hang Clean into Squats got me) and bruise my Achilles on a 250-foot climb (1 of 2 Category 4 climbs on the run, which in the easiest of the category climbs apparently) when I nearly tumbled over the… Read More

Maxx has gotten released from much exercise this week because of the sweltering heat. We did get out on the trail on Monday for 5 miles. It was rough for the little guy, but he made several new friends during our frequent water stops. Nothing makes people happier on the trail than petting our happy… Read More

No Maxx running today. The rain sloshed the dog park, but we’re lining up a Dog + Brad 5k tomorrow morning before The Girl and I head to Nashville, Indiana for The Great In-Law Introductions of 2012.  Today, Rebecca started training for a fall marathon. We joined the Indy Runners Club for its Saturday 7:30… Read More

The 100-degree weather settled in and Maxx wanted nothing to do with the outdoors. I’m getting up at 6 am tomorrow to take him out. One way or another, he’s exercising this week. My juices are starting to kick in, though, and while I’ve abandoned all racing plans this year, I’ve got my eyes on next… Read More

I’ve not had time to write the last two days (but tomorrow I’ve got an 8-hour block of time ready to go), but Maxx and I have hit the trail before the coming of the heat.  Today’s epic 3.5 mile run was our fastest yet, clocking in at 9:20 miles. The only elements holding us… Read More

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… Read More
