Normality, or something like it

Google Developers have quite the sense of humor...



In the past year, I've been a member of 4 different gyms, have lived in three different cities, and have collected a god-awful number of United miles. It's finally coming to an end. I'm going to be home, finally. I'm hoping that this new found stability will allow me to focus on the things that are really important to me, like... my LIFE.

Here's to slow food dinners with my lady on Sunday nights.
Here's to stability in training.
Here's to not knowing which city your spin shoes are in.
Here's to not wasting my life delayed at ORD.

I'm not looking forward to my 18-mile, 60-minute commute, but in a few months I'll be able to ride that once or twice a week, keeping me sane and most certainly extending my tenure with my employer.

Camp's coming soon. I'm still MUCH heavier than I would like to be. I'm hoping to drop 10 lb in the next month. I don't know if that's possible, but I'm going to try like hell.

That's totally possible. I'm down 6 pounds in the last 4 weeks. Cut out alcohol, make sure you burn 1K calories (or more) every time you ride and easy on the total calorie intake and it will melt off.

What's your route from your place all the way up to work?

You in one city doesn't bode well for your competition. I owe you that program holmes. I have it here. Call me and we can meet.
