Sunday, October 11, 2015      19 comments

Ironman coverage always seemed to end abruptly. It did this morning... while I slept, many, many more athletes crossed that finish line. I got to see several of the last finishers, the ones in the final hour. I got to see Daniela Ryf, the new... Read more

Sometimes the affirmations of confessions are startling

Thursday, October 08, 2015      23 comments

I was amazed by some of the comments to yesterday's blog. By how many other technical professionals who have had to battle the bulge (as I have), or for that matter, other intellectual workers in other fields... have "used" similar drugs to fue... Read more

Tuesday, October 06, 2015      25 comments

Trap #2, The Wall to Wall Treats Trap is also a holiday classic: You can't avoid the holiday foods in the office kitchen. Well! This is one I have some experience with. Back when I was heavier, I was an "eat in secret" overeater. But st... Read more

How timely! It's October, and we are about to plunge into the season of temptation (for me, anyway). Starting when the Halloween candy hits the store aisles in AUGUST, for heaven's sake... all the way to New Year's, my old nemesis, SUGAR, and ... Read more

The best spectator seat for sunrise? On the run, of course!

Saturday, October 03, 2015      23 comments

I made it to the starting point at 6:30 a.m. on the dot. It was still dark. It was chilly, 40-something. I was better prepared for that than I was last week. I had on my running tights (the ones that proclaim me a goddess with the interior l... Read more

The "official" training plan, the one for the Good Life Halfsy, has Sunday marked as a rest day... every... cotton-pickin'... week. Sunday as a rest day doesn't work well for me. I'm a weekend warrior... it's the only time I have to train "lon... Read more
