The most difficult thing that I moved from California to Michigan was my new Bowflex HVT machine. It was challenging because it’s big, bulky, and awkwardly shaped. It’s an awesome machine, don’t get me wrong, but it’s not easy to get around!

It’s only the fourth month of the year, but I’ve already raced more in 2019 than I did in 2011, 2012, and 2013 combined. That’s because I’m in the middle of my #40years40races challenge, which is my quest to compete in 40 races in 2019, in honor of my recent 40th birthday.
I’m doing stair races and running races, and I’ve done so many races in the past few months that I’m starting to lose count. I need to Read the rest of this entry »

Breaking news! My road trip is over. I arrived to my final destination in metro Detroit yesterday. Here’s one final road trip picture of me and JJ, taken in the driveway of my parents’ house, where I’m living now.

Greetings from Omaha! JJ and I are at the end of a long day that started in Colorado, involved about 10 hours of driving, and included a 5K race!
I’ll get to all those details, but maybe I should Read the rest of this entry »
