Thyroids, Ankles & Blurry Eyes …

Yesterday was a marathon of a day. A day of doctor appointments. I find it easier to just take a day off from work and get as many doctor appointments in as I can. I made appointments for the orthopedist, endocrinologist and optometrist — also known as the foot doctor, thyroid doctor and eye doctor. It really was a marathon of a day. My first appointment was with the orthopedist at TOSH Foot & Ankle…

My Top 10 Races of 2017

As part of Joshby Week, I rank both my favorite races and race medals (coming tomorrow). Today I am ranking my top 10 favorite races of 2017. After doing over 33 races I’ve had a number to choose. I won’t lie, it was tough. I’ve had a number of awesome experiences, moments, triumphs — and quite a few defeats too. But, that’s a whole other post for another day. Needless to say, it’s been an…

An update of things and whatnot …

Not going to lie, I’ve been in a funky funk lately. It’s been a challenging couple of weeks coming off of my vacation. I have the motivation, it’s just the execution of what I should or should not be doing hasn’t been there. I jumped back into my keto diet after my vacation. That hasn’t been the problem. My plan is to stick to it hardcore for the next couple of months. I will then…

Running in 2018

Sure it’s December and it’s a bit cliche to put these goal posts out. But, I’ve been writing, scheming and planning my 2018 race and training schedule pretty much since August or earlier. I’m an over planner — that’s just what I do. I love the last couple months of the year, because it allows me to be retrospective of the past year and finalize my upcoming year’s plan. The new year brings a renewed…

KETO UPDATE: Three Months In

Well, here I am. It’s been three months since I started my keto diet. And, I reached my goal of losing 30lbs. — which I truly excited and grateful to meet. It was a weird about way getting here, but I am here. When I made the initial goal, I didn’t expect the initial weight loss. I reached my goal pretty much within about six weeks of me starting the diet. This got me excited…
