We were in Arizona last week and into early this week when my MacBook Pro decided to go "toes up". It had done the same thing in W Virginia just a few weeks prior but made a miraculous recovery, plus one previous hiccup a few months prior. Eve... Read more
My new way of remembering...
Thursday, September 11, 2014      2 comments

On the 13th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, it's odd just how searing that event still is to me. It's almost hard to imagine 13 years has gone by that quickly, and yet just how fresh it seems. A year ago, I found out my blood bank was d... Read more

Had a really enjoyable round of golf on Friday. No, I did not have a great score -- 108 -- but it was just getting outside with friends, having lots of laughs, and taking in a late summer day outside. It was my first time this season, which is... Read more

Visited with a sports Dr. yesterday to get a prognosis on my right knee, which a month ago was really hurting me. It actually was (and is) much better, but since I had set the appointment up and had x-rays taken on the knee last Friday, I figur... Read more
Another example of great customer service (Fitbit)

So easy to get caught up in the negative side of customer service, so I really try to make a point to let people know about great customer service. And since this is healthy living related, good time to blog about it -- Fitbit. The backgro... Read more
New Heating and A/C System

OK, so not as much fun as say a new PC or some other "toy" I'd like, but I am pretty excited that we are getting our new heating and A/C system installed. The heater was original with the house -- 23 years old -- so it was past due, and my wife... Read more
Low key Saturday

I have been battling a head cold for nearly a week now, and while I thought it was getting better yesterday, today I feel not so good. Saturday is my normal long run day, but with the sneezes, coughs, runny nose, etc., I may push my run to tomo... Read more
Runnin' in the rain (sung to the tune "Singin' in the Rain")!

Went out for a run last Saturday. According to my Galloway recovery program for a 10K race, I was to run 3-5 miles. So since I needed to go to the library to drop off a book, decided to start / end my run there, as there is a nice quiet neighb... Read more

A blog about nothing?
Wednesday, July 16, 2014      2 comments

One of my quirks on SP is that I always like to finish the day with my points at either a 5 or a 0 (i.e..65, 70, 75, 80). Don't know why...guess that is why it is quirk! So for today, the only way I can reach that goal is to write a blog to co... Read more
Random Observations

- Today was an interval speed training run day -- 16 quarter mile runs at a faster pace than I normally run, with a much needed 2 minute walk between each. Happy to report I completed this task, and my runs where right where I wanted them to be... Read more
New Running Shoes

Monday evening I picked up a new pair of running shoes from a real running store! My 3rd pair of Brooks, and this time they were fitted properly! Also purchased what I am told is a top of the line orthotic insert -- Superfeet -- to go inside. ... Read more
My running evolution...

I recently commented about a friend's post on FB where she stated "Running sucks!". To put this post into perspective, she is preparing to run in her first 5K, but I am suspicious she is not following any sort of program to get there, like C25K... Read more
Adventurous run on Saturday
Monday, June 16, 2014      3 comments

Last Saturday I easily had my most adventurous run EVER! My training schedule stated I needed to do a 6 mile long run, which I was more than cool with, so one of the things I am trying to do is not run the same courses, but rely on my Gar... Read more
Busy weekend ahead!

Lots going on this weekend, so had to get started on the normal weekend chores ahead of schedule (cleaning, groceries, etc). Right out of the box tomorrow (Saturday) morning, we are taking my in-laws up to catch a bus in Wilmington, DE for thei... Read more
