From time to time we all lose focus. For me, this spring I started a new sport. I am now participating in the Heavy Athletics of Scottish Highland Games. For those of you who don't know what that is, It is a bunch of people, wearing kilts, throw... Read more

My first Highland Games

Thursday, August 09, 2012      4 comments

I competed in my first Highland Games last weekend in Spokane, WA. I managed to not hurt myself or anyone else, I didn't scratch on any events, I improved on my form and lengths. I picked the caber 3 times... didn't turn it, but I did pick it. S... Read more

Several years ago I went to the Portland Highland Games for the first times. I should have felt the initial tug of the hook right then. I love the sound of bagpipes. Meat pasties, beer, scotch and other yummie treats. The Kilted Mile, the dancer... Read more

FYI, I don't believe in the Biggest Loser approach to weight loss. Quicker the better, only one "Winner" allowed concept, from the tv show that I refuse to watch. Frankly, I believe it gives unreasonable expectations for general public that does... Read more

A grain of sand in my shoe

Monday, April 30, 2012      4 comments

So I'm about 2.5 miles into my 5.25 mile walk, when the pain started. I swear, at the moment, I felt like there were legions of Huns behind me and I had been struck in the achilies by a spear. I was at a spot where I have a short walk back to my... Read more

My friend told me that I look 'shorter'... (insert head tilt here!)

Tuesday, February 07, 2012      6 comments

I've been looking for 'thinner', 'stronger', 'fitter', 'hotter', but shorter? First of all, he's a stereotypical guy. Not so good with the communication. Not one with a compliment unless forced or coerced. A friend of mine for over 15 year... Read more

Friday, November 18, 2011      3 comments

Don't compare yourself to others. Happy people judge themselves by their own yardsticks, never against what others do or have. Keep up with yourself - not the Joneses. Does the other person have a bigger house, better car, loses weight fas... Read more
