I wrote some words last night about hydration, a topic which I'm sure is linked in a big way to both my success and struggles as a runner:

I fight to drink enough water. I have great intentions and I know the benefits, but as a guy who –up until about five years ago– got most of his fluids from sugary beverages, switching to simple water has been one of the most challenging aspects of this fitness journey.

I've been doing a lot of thinking about winter running. The snow arrived at our house a few weeks ago. Sub-zero (C) temps, of course, and messy trails. I wrote a little bit about the emotional impact of winter running from my perspective.

Also, I made a video to give you a head-cam view of how it all looks on a typical winter evening: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MgcjAdPWFsM

The sun low on the horizon, the freshly fallen snow, and some quiet trails were a technical trial to be sure, and by the time I emerged into the neighborhood to say that I was winded was an understatement — but the conditions were photographically darn near perfect.

Introduction
I am a student of the school of self-taught: ignore the rules, learn by trial-and-error, grow your mind and move on to the next challenge.  I don't particularly care how others do it: I'll figure it out on my own, then share the results.  I take pictures.  I write, blog, draw, and create stories.  I think about complex ideas in topics ranging from science to sociology to politics. I'm a father, a runner, a gamer, a lover of all things pop-culture, and a career information evangelist.  Sometimes I seek great adventure in whatever form it comes, but sometimes I just enjoy a quiet afternoon on the couch with a cold drink and my dog curled up alongside.
