Thursday, March 01, 2012      3 comments

This blog has a little bit of everything: Whatever the bug was I had was more than just a cold, but I think it's on it's way out, at least not a bacterial infection. Maybe I had the flu. Today I went for a very short run of about 20 minutes, w... Read more

still no run, but lots of thoughts about exercise and why I love it

Monday, February 27, 2012      4 comments

We have snow again, it's cold and windy instead of spring-like. At least I'm not sad about missing any fun things outside. So instead I listened to an online interview with Mark Sisson, which is part of the Paleo Summit put on by undergroundwell... Read more
