Diary of a Ragnar Virgin:  DC Ragnar 2013 Review

Two weeks ago, I participated in the 2013 DC Ragnar Relay Race.  (Two weeks already? Sheesh, where’d the time go?) If you’ve never heard of Ragnar, it’s a 12 person, 200 mile relay race.  The race began Friday morning, with runner 1 running the first leg, then handing off a baton (slap bracelet) to...

So, as I’ve mentioned quite a few times here on the blog, I participated in a “Performance Nutrition Challenge” at our Crossfit gym box.   Back in January, I and others, paid $60 to participate, and then spent two months training hard and eating clean. “Paleo” or a “caveman diet” is the most common description...

I received a cupcake with two candles, because, according to the pastry chef, “that’s how many years less than 40 you are”. Adam thought it...

Eight is great!

We had a great time celebrating Wendy’s 8th birthday over the weekend. She is such a delightful girl. It was fun to watch her open presents — she was thrilled with everything.  Some of the highlights were hair things (sponge rollers!), Magic Treehouse books (a favorite) and her first Timex watch. We’ve done some...
