In the beginning of 2017, I took a hiatus from running long distances. Don’t get me wrong, I really like running. I just need to fix a few nagging injuries that I’ve been ignoring for the past several months as well as working on losing weight. Since the start of the hiatus, I’ve had a […]

We’re back from our time in Baton Rouge. I have to say that this year was hands down my favorite visit to Baton Rouge yet. Usually, I get sick during the weekend but luckily I held that at bay for the first time in three years. This time, we had our friends Tyson, Missy and […]

Yes, it’s been a couple of weeks since my last video/blog posts. I took the time off during the holidays just to enjoy the holidays. Thanksgiving was fantastic. I spent time with friends and family and ate very well. Maybe a little too well. My official weight as of Monday November 30, 2015 is…. 303 […]
