Part way through the year I decided to write down a few of the (fun) things I wanted to try and/or accomplish over the summer. I did this initially befcause I decided to take June off work and wanted handy reminder of various things to do besides chilling in the hammock or at the lakes […]
There are lots of benchmarks in crossfit. It’s one of the things I like most about crossfit.
At my gym we do the Crossfit Football Total on new year’s eve, so that’s what I did today.
The total includes Power Clean, Back Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. My lifts were 105, 235, 147.5 […]

I’m off work for 6 weeks. 30 work days, actually 28 work days because there are 2 stat holidays in that time.

I started a little sub-blog @ libertas.praxeum.net where I’ll […]
I’m not normally one to get excited for the new year, but this year is different. I feel a sense of excitement, curiosity and happiness with 2013 rolling in. I’ve noticed many people I’ve talked to seem to feel the same. I think it’s going to be a good one.
