  1. Went to a gym tonight w 180# DB uh-huh Yup
  2. cline is a myth. nothing cline does is real.
  3. ^^^ huh. He's not wearing "I'm a badass" t shirt or a hoodie or anything with a skull and cross bones. and oh look he's deadlifting in lifting shoes. And I'll bet he pulled the weight up just fine. my heavens... hell must be freezing over... must get a north face jacket. Okay kids, off to a meeting... the first person who brings up ebola (somebody has already mentioned it today) is getting elbowed. I'm not kidding. I've already invoked my inner Terry Crews once today.
  4. I don't have a problem with expensive gear. I totally shell out the bucks. I don't have a problem with name brand gear. I don't care that UA has football associations. I don't care that lululemon has yoga and running associations. Meh. I don't care that they have good advertising and marketing or slick stores. I just went to mountain hardwear for a coat b/c I've had great luck with their coats AND bc spousal unit has one of their coats and they are repairing it for him. I do have a HUGE problem with 1) athletic clothes as "lifestyle" - e.g. wear yoga clothes everywhere. People will
  5. Oh man that rainbow was amazing. I looked for both unicorns and leprechauns and felt mother nature is totally guilty of false advertising. I do hold fast to the notion that there was a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Some might call it a "barrel of microbrew" but gold nonetheless. Who knew I'd enjoy vibrams so much? Oh, yeah, I did. I just had to buy some. I need winter ones... Idiots and Ebola in the case of modern day USA go together. They do not go together in West Africa UNLESS you want to criticize WHO and others for their idiotic handling of a clear outbreak AND unless y
  6. I love that you post these NP pics. They are always so great. The one by the water above is really nice. Everyday your joy about your running and NP group is something that brings me joy. And someday raptron and I are going to sit on the drinking deck (I seem to recall you call it the "disabled" deck or something...) with the PR pig and ass slap all of you as you run by.
  7. well, you know me... I'm a fan of do what you love. Sometimes what you love changes and surprises you. That's awesome. That shows so much about you: 1) that you are open to doing different things/rediscovering old things, 2) that you are listening to your own soul and not to the screaming masses, and 3) that you are following a passion (or at least an interest or passion for now). That brings great personal growth, happiness, and development. You are wise. Unless you need to be on the scale, don't worry about it so much. Go by how your clothes are fitting. Glad the nutrition is
  8. I'm doing a "you gots no boot no more" jig for you! Right now! In my office!
  9. *snort* I'll add "you are hardly epic" and follow it up with ASS SLAP! (however it was a good run even if you lacked the killer instict. Now go back to training and don't stop!)
  10. Oh and get off my lawn. Mmmm I'm getting ready for a nerd date.
  11. Spousal Unit: Oh! A North Face store! Me: no! No. No. It's a fashion store. They have one I'm Philly. Spousal Unit: Maybe I'll go in Me: if you drag me in there, I'll quiz every sorry person in there about a) What is north face & if correctly identified, where is it? I'll ask every damn person. Spousal Unit: Yeah I always forget there's one at home. No need to go. Damn. I was looking forward to putting on a sleeping bag (aka coat) and asking my questions. Sigh. ... I don't hate either brand per se. It's the dumbass cults around them. EVERY woman wears a north face sleeping ba
  12. *nods and sits silently sipping a beer and looking at the fire*
  13. Most hiking is over now, I believe. Hit a nice couple of hikes day before yesterday. Amazing. Also saw a full rainbow!!! When we slow down and appreciate, we see many things. I did some serious hiking in my vibrams. I've not done this before. My innov8s have zero traction (worn down) and now have a hole from caving. And they were all wet bc well... hole and I went to stand on a river bank that was grassy but it was really grass in the water....damn. Anyhow, vibrams. Hiked a really rocky trail. Interesting. At one point I exclaimed "well, the mud in my shoes makes my feet feel squish
  14. I think the paleo idea - that we've lost touch - is interesting but paleo man hardly spent all his time swinging a hammer at a tire and then going to yoga and then going on a run and then whining how he can't bring himself to clean his apartment or eat vegetables. Someone sent me this today: http://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/11/your-money/Envy-is-no-basis-for-financial-planning.html?_r=2 Still on theme. Spousal unit said most people here would take my hiking challenge to say "F U I can do that! Watch me beat you at your game!" Which proves my point.....
  15. This is what I'm trying to say: Imagine you are invited to hike. It's not an epic hike. Nothing about it will or can be epic. You are not hiking to something...there is no destination, no sight to behold, no payoff. Hike in, hike out. You are not going to carry the heaviest load (or any load), you are not going to be the fastest, the strongest, or the most fearless. It's just a hike...no weight, no extra exercise, no racing against yourself or others, no risks. You are not doing it in the dark or in a storm. You are not fasted, weak, injured, or otherwise "overcoming" anything to be awes
  16. I think we need to examine motivations and feelings of success. We also need to examine our ability, or lack there of, to just be content. We fill our lives with distractions so we don't have to be emotionally committed to the now. Have two jobs, do two workouts, run errands, watch tv, play video games, etc. This was a lead "article" today (it's really more of a column). The comments are great. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/10/19/magazine/why-are-americans-so-fascinated-with-extreme-fitness.html?_r=1
  17. They said this : Because chances are, if you’re in the middle of this cycle, you’re not willing to admit it. At all. In fact, you’re probably pretty angry just reading this article. You probably think we just don’t understand how truly dedicated/devoted/motivated/tough you really are. You probably think that because you’re getting fitter, losing weight, getting promoted, that all your hard work is paying off—and normal people just can’t comprehend what it’s like to have the discipline to work as hard as you. So many people are stress addicts. They can't see it, they think the
  18. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEE Proud of you! (Hint: the thing that excites you is the thing you should be doing)
  19. Date night sounds perfect! Isn't it truly joyous to connect with your wife? The day in, day out distractions keep us from truly just enjoying one another and reconnecting. I love when spousal unit still really makes me laugh, is kind, tells stories, and so on. It is time when we are quiet and truly engaged that we are fully human and living to our full potential. And spousal unit loves the musketeers... Lol.
  20. It is. Totally cooler. And comes with a much higher risk factor. Although there are mountain lions active here...they don't hang in the caves. But bats do. Caving was fun. I had to wear a hardhat and we had to have flashlights. A lot of hard scrambling and some climbing too. Ripped my sneaker on a rock (my innov8... Boo). But better than ripping my body...lol. Several caves. Turned lights out at one point. You cannot see your own hands. Ever. There is zero natural light. Creepy. Oh and we were often the only people there. Topped it off with a outn4 mi hiking, including to a site
