UPDATE2: Found out this AM (6/7/12) that I was yesterday’s winner for the Vasque Mindbenders trail shoes giveaway from National Running Day! UPDATE1: I ran home from work (it was warm) and I knew I had to be ready for #3 (see below) and I was feeling a little spent. I got home and, BOOM!,… [Read More]
Meanwhile, back at the ranch....
I could say these posts are for sharing pieces of my personal story, thinking-out-loud posts, and things I'm really excited about. Honestly, it's mostly about Moxie.
There are a lot of fitness challenges going around and I guess I got the bug. My own challenge will take place over National Running Day, which is extra fun, and I will plan a run commute to celebrate. My 5 Day Mega Me Challenge Dates: June 4th-8th Aside from the cool new products I’m… [Read More]

Originally posted October 2011. This was right before my 5th of 7 Rock N Roll Series races I ran in my quest for the Rock Legend Heavy Medal. My events are so close together now my posts are out of order. Oh well. Back on October 30th, I ran the Rock ‘n’ Roll Los Angeles… [Read More]
Admittedly, it took me a while to pick up on the point of compression attire as I didn’t realize what it was.
