Life is Moving Fast

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: March 5, 2016

Thought I would be beack on track in the last few weeks with my training, but work had different plans for me. We are very much under water with too few resources and too much business, so most of my days start when it is dark and end when it is dark. That makes it […]

Back in the Saddle

Posted by: b1naryb1k3r on: February 19, 2016

Travel has been crazy the last few months (writing this while sitting in a seat on a flight from MSP to PHX), and I don’t see it getting too much better. My training has definitely suffered as it is had to find time to get even a small run in. The body and mind are […]

I was traveling again this week and had a chance to try out the Westin Workout while staying and the Westin Imagine in Orlando, right across the street from the convention center.

After a combination of research and happy coincidence, I ended up selecting the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 11, and could not be more thrilled with my selection. The […]
