Starting Over. Fitness Journey, Take 112…

Raz and Zoe, my first day training again for a marathon (starting ALLLL the way over!)

There’s something both totally lousy and amazingly self-inspiring about starting over. Yesterday someone asked me “When’s your next marathon?” Which was depressing as hell  funny to me, because I haven’t run one in 18 months. I don’t even see myself as a runner anymore, and certainly not a marathoner. Heck, I don’t even qualify as a [...]


Ironman Race Report–My First and Last (Part One)

Royce and Zoe doing the Ironman-Lift-Your-Bike-Over-Your-Head-Thing

Here’s the 1st iteration of my race report. It’s part advice for first-timers, part experience sharing, and part closure. A few caveats: 1. This will be riddled with some profanity, which I try to keep to a minimum. But for this posting I’m not going to dilute it–I’m going to share it like it happened, or [...]


My First (and Last) Ironman Attempt

24 Ice Cream Sandwiches: Killing the Binge

Bulletproof Coffee

In high school I remember our neighborhood grocery having a sale on ice cream sandwiches. $1 per box. Deal of the century. So I bought something like ten boxes. I remember eating two of those boxes in one day (meh, that’s 24 ice cream sandwiches). What made me think of that was when I ate [...]


“You Lose Your Face?” (my first before and after photo)

Raz before and after

If you stop by on occasion you know that I’ve been working on losing weight, after many years of going up and down. Mostly up. Usually staying up. Several things motivated me to finally make it happen; and a big one of them was seeing all these before and after pictures of different people who had [...]


A Paleo Post…On Valentine’s Day???

Valentines Day

I’m a Paleo fan, and a few people have pinged me with questions about my weight loss so I thought I’d share a few of my learning’s publicly. And by the end of this post, I am going to figure out some clever tie-in to Valentine’s Day. After many years of failure, I finally learned the [...]
