Today was only a 3 mile run, so I didn't bother to get up early to run. It was about 80 degrees and 94 percent humidity at the time I left. Been walking and running a lot lately, as a means of coping with the heat/humidity down here in Flo... Read more

Do you take your car to a car wash and have it washed and detailed? Do you use a riding mower or even worse a lawn service? Do you take your car everywhere you go, even two blocks or a mile away? All of these, and many more are th... Read more

Woke up early this morning for my longest run ever. It was 6:30 when I got up. I didn't feel like running this early, but I wanted to get started before it got really hot. Weatherman said high 90s today. I had a cup of coffee and an 8 oz gl... Read more

In an effort to remain uninjured, I do run/walk on my training runs. Today's training run was a distance of 6.3 miles. When I got home I was fairly tired, but nothing unusual. After having a quick snack, I jumped in the pool to cool down.... Read more

Had a great long run today!

Today I was scheduled to run 11 miles. I miscalculated where I would be at the 11 mile mark, and was more than a mile away from home at the 11 mile mark. Doing math can be a little tough when you're tired. :) Anyway, I ended up doing 12.3 miles... Read more

This is my grandson, Joe. He's 15 years old and is a fitness freak. When he comes to visit grandpa's, whom he calls G-Pa, he likes to work out with me. Recently, he benched 230 lbs! A pretty good weight for a 130 lb kid who just turned 15. He wi... Read more
