Many of my friends already know that in January I made a bet with a buddy to compete in four events this year, two triathlons, a10k trail run and an off road duathlon. We’ve made bets in the past, which was motivation for a month or two, this year we were more ambitious. We wanted […]

Something came over me this past weekend, and I feel the need to reconnect with my past. I’m excited because in just one week I have successfully contacted two of my old friends from high school that I had lost touch with for a couple of years. Its been way too long since I’ve seen […]
