It only took 5 months, but Dr. Darling and I were finally able to return the hospitality we enjoyed at our friends Sophie & Matilda’s place last May … though oddly enough, they did not feel compelled to turn up with a broken bottle of Bushwacker chardonnay. How novel! Since then, these two have become pretty …

Three weeks does not a new habit make

If you’ve ever tried to break a habit or … as is the case with mine & Dr. Darling‘s MalmöMilen 2014 quest … to form a new one, you’ve probably heard or read somewhere that it takes three weeks of deliberate effort to do it. Well, I feel pretty confident I can call “bull-shit” on that …

For those interested in the details, Dr. Darling and I have joined a couple of Twitter pals and fellow Team Sopherocious members in doing Jillian Michael’s 30-Day Shred … but not necessarily on Jillian’s …

We’re seeing red …

… thanks to a big sale at our local Intersport.  These are two different models (honest … look closely!) of Salomon trail-running shoes, which we bought ourselves this weekend as both a reward for our recent hard fitness work, and as an incentive for our upcoming mountain hiking trip.

The Pied Piper of Gym Rats

177810102_80_80

It seems my new accountability ritual for staying on track with the fitness goals connected to my crazy 2014 MalmöMilen 10K Race commitment is having something of a domino-effect. I started posting my (near-) daily work-out activities to both my Twitter feed and Facebook timeline at the beginning of this month: Twitter for my fellow …

These are just 3 of my favorite things …

Sophie posing for an Apple ad

This is my friend Sophie. Based on the number of hits my blog received the last time I wrote about her, people really like to read about Sophie on the internet. Obviously I need to blog about her more often. As mentioned previously, Sophie likes to run and jump and climb and lift heavy objects in …
