Final Thoughts

So 2014 is nigh. I’ve just finished cleaning up the house, organizing some platters of food, chilling some champagne1, and am about to go shuck some oysters as I await the arrival of some friends who will be ringing in the new year with me. All told, not a bad way to spend the last…

New Year New Goals

If you’ve been reading along over the past week or so, you’re probably not going to find the topic of today’s post all that shocking. It’s time to set some goals for the new year; specifically some fitness goals1. First and foremost I have to get back to my regular running self. I miss running….

Things I Should Have Posted But Didn’t

Since I started writing this blog back in the old-time-y days of 2011, I’ve used it as a sort of map of my life. It provides me with the necessary bread crumbs to guide be from wherever it is I might be, back to wherever it is I might have come. It has seen me…

What 2013 Has Taught Me

The last 12 months have been strange and wonderful, at times frustrating and challenging, but ultimately filled with so many amazing experiences and adventures. The year began on such a huge high. It seems like an eternity ago, but in reality not even a full 365 days have passed since Mark and I ran the…

Prepping For Awesome

A few days ago I was describing my need to write more blog posts to help keep myself on track. Setting goals and creating lists is a bit of a thing for me, but I find that if I don’t take the time to sit down and reflect on those I’ve met or those that still elude…

A Christmas Alphabet

Dearest readers, I was originally going to write a post describing the awesome time I just had with Rick and Dr. Beth in Toronto (and it was awesome), but I decided to pour myself a scotch instead. After pouring said scotch (and against my better judgement), I decided that I needed to sample some of…

Buyer’s Remorse? Not Yet

Today is a comfy-pants kind of day. Like many of you, I spent yesterday celebrating the Christmas holiday the way it was intended to be celebrated: with lots and lots of food. And booze. And more food. And coffee. Also scotch. And pie. And because I’m a spoiled bastard, I did all of this while…

19 Again

For those who follow my Twitter account1, you’re likely already aware of the fact that I had a bit of an incident at the liquor store yesterday. Nothing crazy of course – I made no scene, there was no need for security to be called. Regardless, something happened; something that was a mix of amazing and surreal and ridiculous…

White Whine Anyone?

Several weeks ago I was chatting with someone about my lack of travel this year. To put this into proper perspective you’ll have to understand that this observation had followed multiple months of 100+ hours of work per week. That is, I made the observation at a point in time where my body, mind, and…

68 Days Later

Wow. Have I ever been slacking. It has been 68 days since I last wrote anything on this blog. Sixty-eight days. That dear friends is what I like to call pathetic. Fortunately I’ve been keeping myself busy. According to some1 probably too busy. All I know is that I’ve been busy enough that writing here…
