My Thankfulness Post
America (pronounced ah-mur-uh-ka). Today is the day we celebrate the Native Americans teaching the Pilgrims from the Mayflower how to keep from dying, so that in over the next few hundred years we could systematically murder them. But I digress. I do love Thanksgiving despite our country’s history. For me, as I assume most Americans, it’s become less about some religious dissenters...

Spirit of the Marathon →
If you’ve never seen Spirit of the Marathon, go watch it; it’s on Netflix Instant. Now. Stop reading this. Go. Now. It’s a fantastic film about all different levels of runners doing the Chicago Marathon. It made me reminiscent of the one I did. And it got me pumped and made me want to work out all the time.

Long Run: The Swirly 7
I like to give all my runs goofy names. I know most of them. Or at least pretend to know most of them. Here’s a link to the Dailymile route that I ran: http://www.dailymile.com/routes/935294-running-route-in-voorhees-nj It was a great run for me. It has some good hills in it (not sure if the elevation map reflects that). I love running. I really, really do. I burned 963 calories. In like...
I looked back at some of the first runs I did with...
bigfatshoe: And found my first 5-miler. 7/24/11 /// 5 miles /// 1:13:18 /// 14:39 pace Last night I ran a 7-miler. 11/18/11 /// 7 miles /// 1:09:07 /// 9:52 pace Four minutes faster than my first 5-miler and it was TWO MILES LONGER!!! THAT is progress. I feel pretty unstoppable right now… I’m thinking some of my birthday goals that I made in July might be attainable… I’ve got 7 days to...

Okay - in his defence:
hinukshines: there was a history to his comment in my tumblr… some moron had put up an article basically saying if you ate enough fruit and vegetables then you’d be able to drink very little water - if any. I kid you not. There are peeps out there that a) believe this shit and b) propagate it. They’re dangerous. I just want him to remember that I would LIKE more vegetables. Please and thank...
Head. Heart. Legs.: People try to tell me tattoos... →
headheartlegs: and that’s fine, I actually love tattoos, I’ve debated about getting inked myself. The way I see it, tattoos are for painters, and the body is their canvas as people say. But I’m a sculptor, my body is the art. I can manipulate each and every part of it, by lifting, eating, running, cycling,…

Post-Thanksgiving Breakfast →
The title of this post is a link to some great advice about not starving yourself post-Thanksgiving. Runners world always brings the truth. Here’s an enlightening quote from the article that applies to more than just Thanksgiving: “And as often happens after a dessert bender, you may find yourself hankering for even more sugar the day after. That’s because digesting loads of...
Weighed in again, since tonight I’m running and feel like the morning after runs, the scale dips a bit lower than the truth. Current weight: 183.6 (-2.8) My caloric goal per-day is now 2,201 I’ll reach my 180 lb goal: Dec 14 I hope I’m not starving myself or anything because that’s not my game. I just don’t eat after 8 PM and I think it’s paying off. I...
immabeabeast: I’ve been able to convince myself to wake up in the morning to work out before work for the last 2 weeks, which would never have happened 2 years ago. Now I’m up to do 30 minutes of low-intensity, fat-burning cardio EVERY morning. Then back in the gym (or Insanitying in my living room) 6 of those 7 nights—3 to lift, 4 for high intensity cardio. Who am I? Apparently a fit...
Worked Out: 40-Minute Upper Body 1
For anyone who hasn’t used it, GAIN Fitness is a custom workout website that I find outstanding. But I’m no expert. The cool thing about the site is that you can really customize your workout. For this one, I told it I wanted a 40-minute upper body workout. That I wanted moderate intensity and I was a novice, but wanted fat burn. And I specified that I only had dumbbells and a...
It’s 3:50 am. I’m going to go lift. Feeling very dedicated.
Couldn’t lift tonight. Tomorrow I exercise twice. Lift in the morning, run in the night. Come at me, bro.
