Getting Up In the Morning

I’m making pretty good headway on my goals this year overall.  I can say that definitively because I’ve A.) purchased a house and b.) am slightly ahead of schedule on paying down my loans through this point in 2013.The other goal I have is not going as well.  I’m not going to detail it here [...]

Working Out + Intelligence

I started the year with some pretty clear goals for losing weight.  Well, the first half of the year was pretty bad.  It just kind of cruised by.  I improved some of my habits but was never really able to get a rhythm going and despite my best efforts before the wedding, really was about [...]

Kept My Trek 1.5

After posting my Trek 1.5 to Craigslist for sale, no one really seemed to want it.  I was kind of on the fence about selling it anyway as I knew when I did it might bug me later.  It’s a really nice bike, I just wanted something with thicker tires because the roads around here [...]

Cycling Home From Siberia

I’ve been on a reading tear lately.  Lots of travel.
A few weeks ago, I finished a book my mother purchased for me called “Cycling Home From Siberia” by Rob Lilwall.  My fiance and her brother actually both read this before I did, as I was in the midst of some other business reading at the [...]

Out of Practice

I’ve been stressed out lately.  There are a lot of good reasons to be stressed as of now:  planning a wedding and doing many of the activities associated, setting off a major launch at work, classes outside of work etc.  Conversely, there’s NEVER any real reason to get that stressed about things, it’s really a [...]

Some Exercise Information

Stealing this video from a good post @ The Sunshine Spirit.  I’m continuing my search for people who write about, well, a lot of things, but do it in a fun and interesting way.  Especially those people around the Minneapolis/St. Paul areas.
Truth of the matter is that this topic hits home pretty hard.  I don’t [...]

Sudden Realization: I’m Old…Or Damn Close

I’m getting up at 5:15am.
I’m counting calories on my phone.
I spend more time reading than watching television, by a long shot.
I am working 10-12 hours every day.
I’m engaged.
I occasionally worry about saying things that will be offensive to people.   Completely not like me as a younger man.
I still play video games (ok I’ve got [...]

Winter Running: Starting Up Now

I haven’t been able to get back in shape this year.  One of my goals was to get back to my target weight, around 165 lb.  Right now I’m at about 180 lb.  That’s a lot of extra weight to be lugging around.  I work out pretty consistently, but not every day like I used [...]

Snowshoeing At Jay Cooke, MN State Park

Last weekend Teresa and I went to her parents house in Cloquet and spent some time up North.
On Saturday we went snowshoeing at Jay Cooke.  The park is really close to Cloquet, so it’s a natural choice.  We are going to go to quite a few more, we set a goal of going to all [...]

Snowshoeing Around Lake Harriet

Yesterday I FINALLY got out to test my new snowshoes.  They are rad!  Super nice fit, easy to use and they work really well.  The powder around MN has been abundant this winter and especially as of late.  It felt really good to get outside; I’ve had some serious winter boredom setting in lately.  I [...]
