You can’t beat an AmazonBasics cast iron kettlebell
May 25, 2019
This is another example of AmazonBasics disrupting a market to the point of saying “uncle.” Luckily for my favorites, CFF Fit, Kettlebell Kings, and Kettlebells USA, people still go for brand names and powder coatings.

I wish I took photos and I wish I got more of the ride. I also forgot to turn off my GPS watch when I loaded my bike up at the Pentagon Bus Stop for the last 2 miles up the hill to my apartment, so I really wasn’t going around at 40 miles per hour uphill, so sorry about that!
I was a college rower on a college crew
May 23, 2019
My Novice GW Crew coach, Stephen Weiss, was my idol. No matter how young and strong and cocky we young rowers were during training, Steve could take us. He could row faster, he could lift stronger, he could run further, he could sprint harder. At the time, he seemed so old, but he was really only 12-years older than I was. I was 18 and so he was only 30. So young. I received this photo from him just today.
My leather BAGGU bag

I feel like my natural leather BAGGU bag that’s very simple, super durable, so gorgeous and well-made, is one of my very favorite things, one of my most valued possessions.
Important Factors To Consider When Selecting Running Shoes
May 22, 2019
Shoes often make the difference between enjoying and hating running. There is a wide variety of models with different cushioning designs and stability features, and finding the right one is not always easy. Here are key factors to consider when buying a pair that best works for you.
And the swinging is easy . . . until the last set
May 22, 2019
Pavel always reminds us to leave gas in the tank, to make sure you come right up to “I’m so done” and not that much further—at least not during the everyday. Yes, in competitions and in strength testing, but not in daily training.
In the groove with 501 kettlebell swings
May 21, 2019
I think that maybe my Atlas Wristband2 ($40.79) might have counted one session twice but I erring on the side of being more badass. I will try to make sure I don’t mess up the tracking anymore, but I am pretty happy with swinging the equivalent of 6,012 kilograms over the course of the day. Here are the sessions and the times.
Finally on my way with my kettlebell swing habit starting with a 12kg
May 19, 2019
I have been saying that I am going to swing a kettlebell for 90-seconds every 60-minutes. Well, I actually started in earnest today but with a 12kg kettlebell instead of my 24kg bell, and every 30-minutes instead of every 60

Took a Saturday evening to mosey around South Arlington. Grabbed some espresso.

Needed to return a Vornado fan to Amazon so schlepped it in a big Pac Design courier bag. Then came to Whole Foods for some prepared food.
