Throwback Thursday: I want to be this guy when I grow up.

The guy in the “I’m a 70-year-old triathlete and these are my leg muscles” photo, below, that is. Enjoy this throwback post from the first month of Every48.

Throwback Thursday: The Zen Run Redux

“Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh……..” Some days, you just want to exhale. Today is one of those days for me. Enjoy this throwback post from February that describes one of my favorite workouts for the days when you just need to move but can’t quite figure out what to do, or how to get going. The quick answer: let…

Throwback Thursday: What’s a workout, really? Ask this NFL coach.

Monday “What Went Well”: Just do it.

Ah, there’s that nifty Nike slogan again. Thing is, it’s basically 100% right. I’m training for a marathon to end 2014 and yesterday I ran a 15-miler on a morning when I really wanted to stay in bed. My coach said, do it slower than you want to for the first 12 miles, then pick…

Throwback Thursday: Where it all began, almost ten months ago

Sometimes, especially when I’ve had, say, a situation or two to solve on the previous day, or week (or worse: when it feels like everything is hitting the fan), I have a hard time remembering how much progress I’ve made in my health. That’s when I play the “One Year Ago” game. It’s pretty simple….

One more repost for a favorite fitness meme: Remove the Obstacles

[One more reblog today because we’re on the move. A great race report coming tomorrow, plus thoughts on the Big Picture (or, why this Every48 experiment appears to be working). The post below was first published at Every48 on February 28, 2014, and it’s still way, way relevant more than ten months into this journey…
