2 in one day

Yes  the thoughts a flowing tonight. Maybe its becuase Robin isnt here and i can only talk to Cora (our dog) for so long, although i know she loves the attention. I saw my 1st snake of the year today. In fact i saw…

Forget ADD or ADHD, its RDD

Before i moved to America from NZ i lived in Japan for one year. This was a richly wonderful time (not for $$$ or should i say Yen) but for every other reason. I moved there because…. wait that’s another post another time. Japan…

Plan for Sunday

Tomorrow i plan on running for 60mins and also doing a decent ride. i know i am supposed to ease into it, but i also need to get back into it. Isn’t there some expression that says… “there’s always Monday” or “i can start…
