10/09/2012 Running, If I have too…

Over the last few weeks I’ve been working hard to prepare for my trip to Mexico on the 19th of this month.  Along the way I’ve had some moments of frustration, uncertainty, and a couple of moments I can take a small bit of pride in, which is somewhat interesting because one of those moments…

10/05/2012 Burpees Over A Year

I've had a case of writers block, worse than a case of crabs from a Shanghai Hooker who reuses condoms because she wants to save money, if not being able to write was the itch that this woman would give some lucky man, I am scratching like a muthafucka. Needless to say I have at…

09/17/2012 Baton Down the Hatches

Baton down the Hatches 03/2011 I’ve been stuck in what experts could only call Fat Purgatory for the last three months.  An injury, overtraining, poor eating, the consumption of large quantities of alcohol, followed by late nights has caused me to veer off course a bit.  While I’ve maintained a weight between 228-236 lbs, I…

08/18/2012 Where the fuck you been?

Where My Mind Is: I’ve wanted to write a blog post for quite some time, and each time I sit to write I’ve just found myself unmotivated, and uninterested in sharing what’s been going on in my life. I’m finding that I’m exactly where I didn’t want to be, better off, but not better.  Where…

Day 4 Training Day

Day 4 Training Day Joy of Altitude I woke up several times during the night choking.  Not figuratively, but actually choking.  I was struggling for air.  Living at sea level has its disadvantages, and is a handicap in this new world. My discomfort came from a combination of dehydration, sleep apnea, acclimatization, and the shits…

Tough Mudder 1 of 3

Day Before the Mudder Prior to take off while still on the ground in DC, I was walking down the aisle on my way to my seat when I realized that I was having an anxiety attack.  I could feel as I stepped closer and closer to my row, my heart beating faster and faster. …

So the guy who doesn’t like to run, is tapering this week for his second race of the year, although I can’t really call this a race.  The Tough Mudder idea was conceived by Sherri, and Angela in the fall of last year as a way for a group of us from Fat Camp to…
