Burger Spa-

I haven’t posted in ages. I always read, but getting a new job that I’m actually invested in and enjoy has really limited the amount of time that I spend at work, not working. (Side note, a 60 year old guy in running tights and a t-shirt just sprinted through the intersection outside my office window. definitely a hero of running). I’m definitely in a slump. in general.  (he just ran back in the opposite direction).

I’ve been going for a few runs here and there, but nothing consistent, mostly because I’d eaten a hamburger wrapped in a pizza and covered in chili the night before. Trying to slowly build up some consistent healthy habits again. Been riding to work, and trying to eat things that grow out of the ground. You know. Like that.

I’d like to sign up for some 10ks or something. Seems like a reasonable distance to run for fun, but I don’t want to do anything too gnarly before I hike Mt. Whitney in August. Then after that, I’d like to train and do another half (HALF A PIZZA IF YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN).

So that’s it for now. Its amazing how once you start to lose the tiniest bit of motivation, shit just starts going off the rails.


Motivated to Run, but thats about it.



I’ve been running according to my running schedule, and I’ve been pretty stoked on it. I feel like I’m getting more comfortable with the idea of running this thing. I actually look forward to running after work. Its awesome.


Heres the other part: I could give two shits about anything else health related right now. I’m eating like “a fast moving dumpster,” drinking beer a few nights a week and havent been to the gym in over a week. I know exactly what it is that I need to eat to stay lean (lean for a polar bear), but, sheesh I really dont have the will power to not eat like Junkenstein (an immortal junk eating corpse composite), not drink like Charles Bukowski (a legendary drunk), and sleep like its an olympic sport (sports).


I’m hoping that its gonna be just kind of a wonky few weeks and Stella (Clarke) can get her (his) groove back in the next week or so.


(this is the exact moment that Stella got her groove back.)

I know motivation comes from somwhere deep inside all of us. Some deep dark place with lots of guts and black stuff… I just gotta figure out how to tap into it again…


I Run for the Burgers

Why I run.

Time to be honest with myself, I will likely always consume food like this more than I should.  I’ve tried a number of different diets but I think it’s time to come to terms with the fact that if I’m going to eat the way I want I need to to step it up athletically.

Running looks to be my best option, it’s cheep (free), can be done anywhere, and on a good day can actually be a little fun. If you ask me why I run, I run for the burgers.
