Miles daily eventually = miles yearly

So, I used to post on Facebook and Twitter every time I would work out. And then I decided that was just obnoxious. So I try to save those workout posts only for something special, and I’ve moved my daily workout ramblings over to Daily Mile, where everyone is allowed to talk about their workouts…

All is right with the world if only I could sweat in my headphones

Here’s how I spent myΒ time last week: 53 miles. All on my feet. So, I don’t have much to talk about other than running! (That screen shot is from Daily Mile; come friend me over there if you haven’t already.) So, that said, here are a few thoughts about running: = Does anyone have a…

Hard core and intimidating? Hardly

Much delayed, but I promised to share my experiences from my first triathlon, so here goes: There’s something that seems very hard-core and intimidating about a triathlete. Which is why I laughed in my brother’s face when he first suggested I race a triathlon. But the truth is, I very much wanted to become comfortable…

What is a best friend?

Apparently today is National Best Friends Day. It comes at a time in my lifeΒ in which friendship and the very meaning of it has been something I’ve questioned. So, what is a best friend? Being a little bit of a grammar stickler, I have trouble with those who claim to have multiple best friends. Don’t…

How to make Starbucks have negative calories

This post is not just about exercising. This post is about how amazing my friends and family are and how exercising plays a big role in that. Case in point: Wednesday I rode my bike to TrySports (7 miles)Β for the group ride, only to have it rained out. Instead of calling it a day, Scott…

A tribute, a workout and a margarita

My first group ride was yesterday. And I can’t stop thinking about it. I mentioned it in yesterday’s post, and I was so nervous/excited about the thought of riding with a group that I hardly paused to think of the reason for the ride. I read Kevin’s blog post shortly before leaving the house and…

Buying a bathing suit at Target while drunk

So, I had the opportunity to attend another beer festival this past weekend in Rock Hill. This comes only two weeks after the festival in Athens that Chris took me to. I was super-stoked about this one – it was called “Mountain Jam Brew Fest” and it was advertised that people should bring tents to…

Proof that I’m a dork

Okay, so last week I wrote a post about how much I enjoy spending time in Athens since the city is so walkable. And I mentioned that I would really like to just wear my watch on a night of bar-hopping to see how many calories one would burn. And with some courage from you…

On walkable cities

Charlotte is trying. Charlotte’s been converting four-lane roads to two-lane roads with bike lanes and sidewalks. They are doing this in order not to miss out on some government spending. I am happy with this. In doing some research to attempt to find information about this, I came across a blog post about walking to…
