2019 Year-End Progress Report

January 5, 2020

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a delightful holiday season. Here’s a really awesome Christmas present that my sister-in-law Alexis gave me: a portrait of me and JJ as characters on “The Simpsons!” I love it so much.

Now let’s get into it. Time for my yearly wrap up. Time for my 2019 Year-End Progress Report!  Read the rest of this entry »


2018 Year-End Progress Report

January 7, 2019

Happy New Year! My 2019 rolled in with a nasty cold that completely sidelined me for four days. I’m still not 100% feeling better, but the congestion is gone, I’ve begun exercising again, and all that’s left is a sore throat that makes me sound like present-day Kathleen Turner.

But before I rush forth, whole-hog, into the new year, I have some housekeeping to do with 2018. This annual post is one of my favorites, and I can’t wait to jump into… My 2018 Year-End Progress Report!

Oh well, I’ll catch up with this post, and do the reports for both months. First, let’s take a look at my weight loss chart: Read the rest of this entry »


I Raced Up The Tallest Building in Seattle! (Big Climb Race Recap)

March 28, 2017

It’s a common misconception that the Space Needle, Seattle’s most iconic landmark, is also the tallest thing in town, but that’s not the case, no sir. There are actually six skyscrapers that are taller, with the tallest, Columbia Center, reaching over 300 feet higher than the Space Needle.

On Sunday, I competed in the Big Climb Seattle, a race up 1,357 stairs in the Columbia Center, and it was a momentous occasion, for a couple of reasons: Read the rest of this entry »


I Love My New Stair Race Map AND My New Lego Skyscraper!

March 20, 2017

I realized the other day that I’ve now done a stair race in 17 different cities. SEVENTEEN! I think that warrants a new stair race map, don’t you think? Check it out!

This is the version 2.0 of this map, which is hand-drawn. (Full confession: Read the rest of this entry »
