    My man boobs don't jiggle nearly as much as they used to so I feel like I'm getting close

    good interview w/ Colin McCourt, former world class miler trying to get back into shape after 5 years of not running.

    Anthony's man boobs jiggled a little bit in the Under the Bridge video and we all know how that turned out, so no-jiggling certainly isn't a requirement.

    I've been gradually rectifying this. I started working out about a year ago to help cope with my anxiety issues. It didn't help immediately, but after it became routine it has been really transformative. I've finally gotten into running pretty regularly. When I started I was struggling through an 8:30 mile. The other day I ran a 5k at an 8-minute pace though, which was exhausting but I felt very proud of myself about it. I know that it isn't very good and I won't ever be in the type of cardiovascular shape as CoE or Ned, but I'd like to train during the year for a triathlon. That would be an awesome accomplishment.

    My biggest hurdle is that I'm still smoking close to a pack/day right now. I plan to quit right after getting back from Italy because I'll have a month before I move back to the city and start working where I can just cool out, use the patch and gum, and finally kick the habit. Wish me luck!

    I think I'm getting running gear for my birthday

    I really want to compete in a half marathon, and it bums me out that I've still never got around to putting in the hours for one

    that's a really good 5k, be happy with that, especially since it's still new to you. most of my "non-competitive event" runs are around a similar pace. once your body gets used to understanding what a hard effort is vs a "going out for a jaunt" effort, both of them get a little easier & faster for you. good work!

    i've only been running 1x a week since the little guy showed up. tuesday morning runs with a group of friends who drop me on the last mile every week because my fitness isn't improving and i'm already exhausted. but i signed up for 4 mile run in KC over the 4th where it'll probably be in the 90s! that'll be a blast.

    I don't now why I haven't posted this before but better late than never:

    One of my best mates from Uni is running back and forth across your great country (like Forrest Gump) for charity.

    He's been averaging over 40 miles a day for a year now and is breaking lots of records

    Thanks for the encouragement. I'm still working on this and slowly working my way up. I had to go out and buy some new running shoes the other day because my old ones were completely worn through and they were killing my calves. I have a slick pair of blue Nike trainers now.
