New guidelines for the use of salt in your diet

We all know that salt is not good for you but today the federal government came out with a pretty firm warning.  I went back and looked at all my nutrient results from the past year (yes I DO have all of this info!) and I am guilty of going over my daily limit.  This […]

And so the training begins….

I am excited!  Today starts a whole new year of triathlons, duathlons, 5k, 10k, half marathon races, etc, etc.  And do you know what my first day of training consists of?  RELAXING!  That’s right, I love it when the training plan starts off with a day of nothing.  Gives you the reality of what lies […]

This is an area and a topic I am not too familiar with.   My body is not used to being able to NOT perform the way I want it to.  Therefore I venture into to areas unknown.  My entire life I have been lucky with health and other than the common cold, have never been […]

Learning new things while teaching others to run

My knee felt great today when I got up (sounds like how I started the post the other day, eh?) but I did not go out running in the morning.  I wanted to wait until the end of the day to give my body another 12 hours of rest.  In total, I had put off […]

Three pieces of advice I need to listen to

I woke up this morning bright and early looking forward to a long run and I could barely get out of bed, that is how sore my foot and knee were.  So I have done it again… I have taken one step forward two steps back. Needless to say, my wife said “told you so!” […]

About

So if you have read any of the blog thus far you know a little bit about me… I can not be told what to do and I push myself about as far as I can be pushed!

But how did I get here and why? Well, that is what this page is about.

I was never really the athletic type. Sure, I played tennis in high school (and quite well, mind you) but running CERTAINLY was never my thing!

The start of 2009 was big for me as I came to the realization that I had put on too much weight over the past 10 years (read more...)
