Sage Yoga Training, Episode II: Revenge of the Lunge

I’ve gotten the second podcast together, with some help from my friend Alex. He showed me how to record the voice track in a “tent” created by draping my blanket over my head, desk, and monitor. (He tells me it would sound even better if I crawled into my coat closet with the mic.) And… Read more »

Beta Web Site Live

Is it a contradiction in terms for a Web site to be both “beta” and “live”? At any rate, you’ll see it here. I’d love to get feedback: “That color is weird,” “That link didn’t work,” etc. Podcast episode two is just waiting for music. Hope to have it up tomorrow afternoon. I’m looking out… Read more »

Logo

The pretty-much-final logo design. It’ll go on the podcast, the Web site, an ad in Endurance, business cards. I have an elaborate interpretation of the semiotics: the wavy line represents the upward trend of training results, supported by the sage green (yeah, I know), while also looking like the curves of a bottom (heh, heh)… Read more »

Not Quite Sunset Boulevard

You Are Skiing Graceful, athletic, and gusty – you’re willing to put it all on the line.You’re willing to take big risks for big rewards. What Winter Sport Are You? Apparently I am skiing. I feel more like I am curling.

Fugue Dreaming

Usually I sleep very well. Sometimes, though—like when I’m sick, or before a race—my brain seems to lapse into a loop cycle, and I wake repeatedly with the same information spinning through my brain. But it’s not important information, nor is it something that’s obviously troubling me. Last night, for example, it was the image… Read more »

Bears!

Wes and I were happy to see that Stephen Colbert is the subject of a story in Newsweek. Of course, we got this information from Colbert’s show, which we have watched religiously since it began airing in October. The single episode we have missed (friggin’ DVR!) was the one where he slammed the AP for… Read more »

Podcast Up

Well, it’s not perfect (I ran out of time and energy before I’d figured out how to edit the voice track, and the pictures were a rushed job), but my first podcast is up! You can get it from my Web page, where you can subscribe to it, or you can look for it on… Read more »

And This One’s Self-Promotion

A shout-out to Dave Williams for valuing yoga! I’ll be talking on incorporating yoga in triathlon training–you know, the subject of my book-to-be!–as part of March Multisport Madness at the Wellness Center. You can sign up for the whole weekend or à la carte. Dave and his crew are great coaches–it’s going to be totally… Read more »

Champagne Chairs

Another Pica find, this is Design Within Reach’s annual champagne-cork construction contest. Amazing.

SOTU Quiz

Taking a cue from my longtime best friend Pica, and in the spirit of having completed my first exam (the USA Triathlon coaching certification exam, complete with multiple choice, true-false, short answer, and essay questions) since my nine-hour written and three-hour oral doctoral exams, and in honor of my friend Jen, who has just been… Read more »
