A fresh and simple arugula and walnut pesto recipe from my sisters at 1970 Dogwood Street

When Anne Haas and Jen Tucker post a recipe, I jot it down. I love pesto, though I don't think I've ever had an arugula and walnut variant.

Tuesday Fall Team Challenge Update

Tuesday Fall Team Challenge Update

I didn't get as many meters as I wanted tonight primarily because of technical failures. I moved from POLAR H7 back to an old school Garmin ANT+ strap and disabled my USB thumb drive on my PM5 and then needed to swap out a dying Apple iPhone 5 and set up my Samsung S8 Active to work with the ErgData app.

I ordered my next pair of running shoes Nike Zoom Fly SP

I have really enjoyed running in Nike Pegasus running shoes again. Nike intrigues me. I used to love the Pegasus shoe because it was perfectly balanced at cheap-but-good, always hovering around $80 new.

I just need to average 7,143 meters-per-day for 26-more-days

I didn't get started for a couple days--mea culpa--but I have pledged to row at least 2km after every article I write. I had wanted to swing the kettlebell between articles; however, I need to average 7,143 meters-per-day for the 28-days I have to make my 200km before midnight on the 15h of October.

I'm my own worst enemy

Every day is a series of successes, failures, excuses, being a weather wimp (which doesn't work because I have an erg), and blaming a launch sprint crunch. It's all bullshit.

Aragon Could Be the Future of Business Administration

Aragon Could Be the Future of Business Administration

At 3PM GMT on May 17th 2017, Luis Cuende & Jorge Izquierdo launched a token sale to raise money for their Ethereum-based blockchain technology that would disintermediate the processes associated with running a corporation using a framework known as a Decentralized Autonomous Organization (DAO). By 3:15PM GMT, the token sale was over and they has raised $25 million for Aragon Foundation, parent organization of the Aragon Core platform and the Aragon Network (AN). It takes a lot of star power to sell out of anything in 15-minutes.

Running: Sun, 2 Sep 2018 19:50:49

Day two of two in a row. Hopefully I can keep up a daily run of at least 2 miles a day. I'd prefer it to be 4/day but I didn't sleep well at all last night so I'm being gentle.

I've started a very little weight lifting habit I will build upon

I've started a very little weight lifting habit I will build upon

Now that my pad’s a weight room, I need to keep my forward momentum. I worked out using a combination of TRX, bench with kettlebells, and a 37-pound resistance band, doing a mixture of presses, rows, fallouts, pullovers, tricep extensions, dips, kettlebell bench presses, and close grip presses.

A plumber came by my pad to fix my tub and he told me that I live in a prison weight room. Okay, he didn't say "prison" but it was all in the tone. It's true.

Why men shouldn't stop running

Why men shouldn't stop running

For those of us who aren't naturally as smooth as a dolphin or who aren't religious about their waxing or manscaping, it takes a couple days of running for all the hair in your running shorts to be brutally torn out by the roots; after which, it's all smooth sailing.

I realized that I run like a snowshoer without snow or snowshoes! Made 4 miles again! Very lovely, show, cool, meander, all the way to Shirlington and along 4 Mile Run, then to Walter Reed.
