I have written several articles on what Jon likes to eat and gluten-free kid-friendly choices. Surprisingly this hasn’t helped us out recently because Jon has become extremely picky. I am sure some of it is control on his part and maybe a touch laziness, but the bottom line is that he was not eating [...]
This past Sunday I ran a 10K race at Highbanks Metro Park. Highbanks is notorious for the hills, which some have deemed “the cliffs of insanity”. Some of the trail is paved, but most of the hills are dirt and gravel with fallen leaves scattered about. The Buckeye Classic 10K is a race I [...]
A couple of weeks back I got an email with a deal to purchase a pair of Zensah compression socks at 50% off. The deal was through a Groupon-like website called Schwaggle by Active.com. The compression socks retail for $49.99, so for $25, this was a great deal.

I also wanted to share a photo that I saw on Facebook yesterday on a friend’s status. Sara is an amazing woman and she couldn’t have posted this at a better time. Since many of you echoed what I wrote about with my battle against the scale, I thought you may benefit from this, [...]
A couple of weeks back I asked Aaron to hide our scale. I knew that it would only hurt me (mentally and possibly physically) to continue to weigh myself daily at that point in my training. Now that my race is over (and I met my goal) I have been pondering whether or not [...]
Commit. Train. Believe. Achieve. Fitting that this is the official motto for the race that I just PR’d in!
I DID IT! Shiny new PR (personal record) for me! I finished the race in 1:57:31 yesterday – my previous PR was 2:01:22 in the same race in 2009. I don’t think I have ever [...]
It is here. Race Day. The day I have been waiting for all summer. I ran this race 2 years ago for the first time. It was my first ever half marathon. They say you aren’t supposed to set time goals for your first race. Your goal should simply be to finish. Being the [...]
