Fitness Specter 29: The Longest Run Ever

This morning I ran. I got up an hour early, I went outside, and I ran. As the title of this column indicates, this was a hard run. I worried that I wouldn’t make it halfway before walking and I’m glad I made it almost a full mile before I had to start walking (the […]

Fitness Specter 22: A New Beginning

I sit here writing for my website at 4:30 AM thinking: why the hell are you awake? Why the hell are you doing anything this damn early in the morning? Then I remember what I used to do this early in the morning and I realize it’s high time I stopped thinking things are just […]

Fitness Specter 21 – Super Setback

Did you know the Super Bowl just happened? Were you aware that a great many people eat a great many things that aren’t good for one during the Super Bowl? Well, I was one of those people. As I write these words, my wife is 1500 miles away from me. Well, more, really, but that […]

Fitness Specter 20 – A Week in the Life

I decided to try a little experiment. What this is will be a hypothetical account of what a week of my life will be in 2015. I am writing this ahead of time, so I may already be doing this. Again, just a little peek at what I think might work. Monday morning: wake up […]
