April 29, 2018

I’ve had a tough few days, but I’m working through it. Sharing it will help. So here goes!

I’ve been noticing, for a few weeks, some changes. I’ve been pushing myself pretty hard, workout-wise, for a long time, and I’ve been feeling worn out. Perpetually. I’m normally excited about my exercise plans for the day, or later on in the week, but Read the rest of this entry »

Finger Sporks!

April 18, 2018

I have finger sporks and you don’t!

April 15, 2018

I competed, on Saturday, for my seventh consecutive year, in the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air Climb in Los Angeles. The title for this post comes from a sign I saw on the roof after the race, which echoed exactly what I was feeling after a particularly tough climb.

The race was up 63 stories in the stairwell of Read the rest of this entry »
