I don’t post much lately. I’m trying to do better. I still read and heart your stuff daily.
I’m running my third marathon in a year on sunday. I’ve trained very little for this one. My only goal is to finish in under 4:30.
I’ve only had two days off in the past three weeks. The urge to walk off is strong. But I’m smart enough to have something else lined up first.
I’ve got an idea for a reality show, involving an island, stupid people, and garbage mountain.
It’s a glorious 70 degree day, I’ve got a freshly washed bike, and the day off!
I’m going exploring on the coast of Illinois if anyone wants to go.
I picked up my 17 year old son today, after he spent 4 weeks with his mother. And how’s he spending his first night back? With his girlfriend!
Whatever kid. Redrum.
I slept 12 hours overnight. Work, and the 82 mile relay race, is trying to kill me.
I wouldn’t normally drink during rides, but I’m making an exception today.
Never made it to Fast Eddies, but we rode along the Missouri river to Grafton, Ill. It is scenic!
I weighed and fatted in at the gym today. Body fat was 14% about a year ago.
And now I’m picking the hottest day and time on the planet to go for a bike ride. It’s 98 degrees F right now. Feels like 1000…
One week ago
I dumped my boys with my ex in Michigan. To get them away from all the violence and looting in Ferguson, which is only four miles away. Things seem calmer now.
Tomorrow will be my first day off since. And first time having the house to myself. Of course, I’ve got plans that involve not being home.
Going with a friend on a motorcycle ride into Illinois. My first time checking out the area just across the river! Some place called Fast Eddies too.
I’m part of a 6 - person team running an 82 - mile race on the Katy Trail this Saturday. I run three legs and around 12 miles. My lazy ass has only been running about once a week all summer.
But I did get 4.3 miles in today. Probably won’t die Saturday.
Of the real-life purge.
Demonstrations during the day. Looting and rioting and stuff at night.
