5 miles and Joe Biden

I just ran five miles.  And by just ran, I mean I’m still sitting here in my own funk.

This week, I was touched by awesome…

I already posted this to Facebook, but I figured that I might as well blog about my brush with awesomeness.

I wrote an email to the Maple Grove Barefoot Guy about how I got started in barefoot running for his Fan Friday feature.  He and I had a very interesting email conversation that turned into this post.

Most impressively, he took my initial book-length email and all the long long responses to his questions and condensed it into something cohesive and readable.

So, for all of my reading masses (both of you, thanks mom!), head over there and check it out.  And read the MGBG’s blog, it oozes awesome from every crevasse.


So I went and added a fitness category.  And two sub-categories.

Well, that, and I posted here for the first time in like 10 months.  Seriously, I blog like Halley’s Comet.

The purpose of the fitness category is to start to chronicle what has been a new commitment I made to getting in shape.  The whole process started in January.  I’ve done running, I’m currently doing the Insanity Workout, and I’m exploring barefoot running.

We will see if I can attack this blog with a renewed vigor.
