So I've been thinking.

Contemplating one might say.

I'm a pretty stubborn guy and get really mad at myself when I can't do something the way I had planned out.  Nothing seems to be at the forefront of this like my performance in the TCS NYC Marathon last year.  Yes... ma...

So I recently moved (December) and with it being the holidays... we were quick to get into the new house and try to get things set up.  Which meant quite a few boxes and bags were placed in the "we'll get that later" pile.  As life has moved along, we've moved room by...

I have been given the "all clear" from my doctors to go ahead and begin training again.  Of course it has come with a caveat of warnings, don't do this, wait until attempting this and other disclosures... but I am OK to get back on that proverbial horse and ride it all...

Coming off of the race in New York, I had a hard time coming to terms with what had happened and my performance.  Not a single person had anything negative to say.  Nothing but kudos and congratulations on the accomplishment at hand.  It was hard for me to see it as an...

We arrive in New York City on Thursday, November 2nd.  In town a couple days before the race to do a little site seeing, it lived up to everything I’d imagined.  I’ve been to NYC before, but both times were quick visits, just a couple days.  We checked into our hotel 2...

Workouts at the box (CrossFit gyms are called "box" vs "gym") 4-5 days a week, training runs 3-4 days a week, and occasional yoga class and then the extra work on grip strength, box jumps and stamina has my life in a perpetual cycle of pain and recovery.  The good part...

So I joined Stay Strong CrossFit in November 2016.  It was rough for me at first.  I was super intimidated by... well... everything.  I had never done most of the movements, it was a different atmosphere and I knew no one.  Luckily I'm extroverted with little shame to...

So I am training for the TCS New York Marathon on November 5, 2017!  26.2 miles run over 5 bridges and through all 5 burrows of New York.  Interestingly enough the race is 12 weeks, 2 days, 13 hours away.  Not that I'm counting or nervous at all.

A few people...

The CrossFit Open is Here!  This means little to nothing if you don't do crossfit... however it is a pretty awesome thing.  The open is a precursor to the CrossFit Games that you see on ESPN.

Basically it's a qualifying tournament of sorts.  Over 5 weeks, a new wor...

Today was a rough workout.  Back at Stay Strong CrossFit after time off to pass a kidney stone.  Lots of people in class both regular athletes as well as competitors that are going to be in the CrossFit Open.

So back to it, I was excited to get rolling.  The warm up was...
