Me and Mr. Amell Redux

Had a great time at Planet Comicon yesterday in KCMO. I got to meet Stephen Amell twice. Once to get his autograph on a picture I took with him two years ago, and again to get my picture with him and said picture from two years ago. For me the pictur

Shawnee Lake w/Tinman Circle x2: (15.1 miles)

I learned three things while cycling this weekend on my new bike: Maneuvering a road bike with razor-thin tires is much different then a mountain bike with oversized tires.

Tri-Trail Full: 26.8 miles

Was planning on going out to ride this morning before Shane and I headed out this afternoon to Halloween Haunt at Worlds of Fun but needed to get some chain oil for my bike because it was pretty annoying on my last ride. I went to the local bike shop to pick some up and […]

Afternoon Run: 3.2 miles (10.23/mi)

Nice easy run today. Shane is out of town for a couple of days and the weather has been gorgeous. So I’m trying to get in as many miles as I can running before it starts to turn cold again. I’ve been having some soreness in my lower back so I’ve stayed away from lifting […]

Evening Run: 2.4 Miles (10:29/mi)

Running after a heavy leg day always sucks. But you have to get out there and just run. In the end it helps me and my legs feel better. I’m doing a bang up job running 10:30/mi. My goal is to train so I can run a 10 minute mile with regularity.

Morning Run: 10.5 miles

Today I decided I’d go for a run. Guess it was a bit longer than I had intended to run when I started. But I guess why not right? 10.5 miles is just my new reality. Looks like I don’t need as much training for my half marathon next month that I thought I would […]

I am a Runner

So today I am a runner. I know that seems strange to say now but I firmly feel that you are a runner when you feel like one. And that is different for each and every person. Even when I was training and ran my half marathon I felt like a fraud. Like I was […]
