What I’m Reading Lately

Happy Monday! I can’t believe it’s already the weekend. We’ve had a pretty incredible week here. Kaitlan is WALKING. As in, not just cruising, and doesn’t want to crawl at all anymore. When we got back from the State Fair we were ecstatic that she was free standing and cruising on furniture. And last Friday, […]

Friday Link-up and Loving Lately

It’s Labor Day weekend! I feel like there’s a lot going on this weekend. First home football game of the season, last open pool weekend, an Open Gym shift at the gym, and of course, a three-day weekend. So without further adieu, here’s another edition of Friday Link-up and Loving Lately. Aurorae Resistance Bands Oh […]

Training Update

Instagram makes day to day training easy to share, but I thought I’d give you a little bit of long-form version on what I’ve been up to lately. I feel like I’ve hit this place of pure joy with my training that has really been missing for a while. And I owe that to Fringe’s […]

1 year ago

Kaitlan is just about a year old! 1 year ago today I had my first contraction. I was walking back to work after having lunch with Neil downtown. I’m not sappy about it or anything, but I’ll probably be reliving it a bit throughout the weekend. Some days I feel like it was eons ago, […]

The Method to Balance

It doesn’t need to be said that new parenthood is a huge adjustment to life for new parents. For us, there was a huge adjustment period of not only caring for a newborn, a full-time job at it’s easiest, but somehow trying to make all the pieces of our old life fit together in a […]

Charlie the Catalyst

Hey guys, I wanted to give a little shout out to Charlie Racinowski. You may remember, he was my nutritionist during pregnancy, and he is currently competing for the shot at being named 1st Phorm’s Top Trainer in America. I’ve been meaning to write him a public testimonial for a long time, so I’m excited […]

Talking Podcast Shop

Last night I dreamed that I had a podcast. I had just finished up an episode of Leg Day — a new podcast with Kevin Ogar and Nathan Morris before going to bed. They had Nate on their latest episode, which means I’m one Kevin Bacon degree from being famous. I kid. Anyhow, In my dream I talked shop […]

2015 CrossFit Central Regionals

I had an awesome weekend at the CrossFit Central Regionals in Minneapolis. I got a little bit of everything — plenty of CrossFit, time with family and friends, and some good relaxation — even a little working out. It’s amazing how fast a weekend can go! I didn’t take a whole lot of pictures. I […]

Goodbye for now

No not me, I’m not going anywhere. However, today I say “see ya later” to my coach and one of my closest friends, Nate. You might remember I wrote a little training update a few weeks ago about my barbell now living at home and things were feeling really convoluted. I wrote that soon after he accepted […]


So as I alluded to in a recent post, we’ve been weaning. It’s certainly not what I thought we’d be doing at 8 months, but as I’ve learned with most everything in parenthood, you can only go with your gut and best intentions. How did we end up here? I still don’t know exactly. Supply […]
