I Shattered Two Personal Records During One of the Toughest Races I’ve Done!

September 11, 2019

I’ve run races on roads, on trails, and I’ve certainly done plenty of stair races. The race I did on Saturday, though, combined all of those disciplines, and more! My finishers medal was well-earned… and earning it required doing things I’ve never done before.

The race was the 20th Annual Mount Baldhead Challenge, in the cute little town of Saugatuck, Michigan, where I once Read the rest of this entry »

Blisters Aren’t Always A Bad Thing… Not When They’re On Cucumbers!

September 5, 2019

My friend Mat sent me a really interesting recipe a few weeks ago, for blistered cucumbers, and I just had to try it. It caught my attention because cucumbers are one of the vegetables that you rarely, if ever, see cooked.  And this recipe involves cooking them in a really interesting way. Count me in!

The Easy, Healthy Dinner That’s So Good I Made It Twice in Three Days!

August 21, 2019

This kinda looks like a lasagna, but it’s not.

August 15, 2019

I love trying new things, especially when they are healthy foods or ingredients, or produce items I’ve never seen before. I’ve recently tried a variety of new things that I’m going to share in this post – and keep reading until the end, because there’s a new item that I have vowed never ever to eat… even though it’s tempting!

Podcast Alert: Listen To My Interview on “The Fat Guy Forum!”

August 11, 2019

I love podcasts. I subscribe to a couple dozen, and listen to them while I’m walking my dog, driving around town, and I make sure to load up on them for my road trips. So it really was an honor to be interviewed for a new weight loss themed podcast called “The Fat Guy Forum” – and I can’t wait for you to listen!

“The Fat Guy Forum” is hosted by Read the rest of this entry »


I Drove 15 Hours To Compete in a 30-Minute Race

August 11, 2019

My last post was all a recap of the Pine Mountain 500 – an awesome race that ended with a dash up 500 steps. What I left out of that post was the logistics… how I traveled 15 hours in the car, over 2 days, all so I could participate!

It was a whirlwind two days, and I took lots of pictures. Read the rest of this entry »
