Well, hello all you lovely people :D

But in the meanwhile, I'm going to be in downtown Chicago in an hour where I'll be staying for the next three weeks! If you're there or are a crazy Illinoisian around the area, we should hang out!

It was wild, it was crazy, and I enjoyed spending some quality time with a group of of abso-bloody-lutely marvelous people. I would make this post longer, but my immune system is destroying me with how much it hates Ohio air.

Oh, also! Mental note: For my own future reference, I should never pick random roommates from the internet for a con. It was interesting, but also a very bad idea.

Ah, my last day in California. Firstly, while most of my FaceBook friends have seen this, I'm entirely too proud of my ability to push my limits every so often. You should check it out! I was able to max out the hotel's weight machine and squat 470 lbs for 5 reps.

(Also, I'm going to say right now that the butt shot was NOT intentional. It just ended up like that!)

Say, whowantscookies! When AM I going to get some sort of reply from you, my my pasty Greek rival-in-training, hmmmm?

On other subjects, I'm really going to miss San Fran!
This place is absolutely wonderful compared to Ohio. The roads are cyclist and pedestrian-friendly, every other person I met was not spiteful or a horrific blob of fat, and the weather is PERFECT.
I've had one of the more memorable runs I've had in a while running up and down the San Leandro Bay. While four miles is typically my upper limit on a run, I ran eight miles up to and back from the bay and enjoyed every bloody minute of it. Seriously, the sun glittering off the ocean, the sound of the crashing waves...just everything about running by the seashore was just incredible. That's only the start of it all too. Running around in the city was awesome as well, but that's a story for another time.

Time to pack now and hope for a quick and thoroughly uneventful flight back. Catch you all during the weekend!

I also have to say that I'm going to miss San Fran!

Do any one of you lovely people live in or around San Francisco or Alameda, CA? I'm actually going to be in Alameda on account of FDA training from july 12th to the 16th, so drop me a line if you live around the area. It would be awesome if we could hang out!

So, about that weightlifting meet I told you all I was going to in my last post?

I totally rocked it!



I placed first in the division for my weight class, and ended up setting three Personal best, American, and world records while I was at it!

For my Bench Press, my max was 215 lbs:





For my Squat, my max was 331 lbs:





And for my deadlift, I was able to lift a maximum of 353 lbs:




Suffice to say, I feel pretty incredible :D

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted here, hasn't it?
Life has been quite busy with me. I've had some ups and some downs, but what else is new?


Karen's leaving for the next threeish weeks, so I'm trying to figure out what sort of mischief I can make in the meanwhile. Strong contenders for things to do are weekend roadtrips to Columbus and Chicago, but that's also tentative barring costs and other more exciting alternatives! Any ideas?

Beyond that, what I am excited about though is participating the the Natural Athletes Strength Association National lifting meet in Springfield, OH. I'm probably going to get annihilated at the competition, and I'm mostly doing this for the experience, but I'd be lying if I didn't say that I'm pining just a bit for winning something. We'll see how that goes on Saturday!

So, I found this absolutely BEAUTIFUL running trail a week ago, and it really made a big impression on me. I'm very proud of the fact that even though a lot of the photos I took were using just natural light and my janky little 10MP camera, they turned out to be pretty beautiful, even wallpaper worthy, if I do say so myself!

Here, they are if you want to have a look!Collapse )

Hey everyone!

It's been almost a week since I've posted, and a lot has been up in that week!
I had the chance to finally see a Cirque Du Soleil show, and was quite curious given all I'd read about it on jezeroth's LJ. I have to say, the show was bloody magnificent. It was poetry in motion, and the sights, the sounds, the bodies flying, singing, and dancing were almost too much to take in at the same time. The fact that I got in for free with EXCELLENT seating was pretty damn awesome in my opinion, but if they're ever in town again, I'm sure that I probably would pay top dollar for seating.

Beyond that, I also found out that work was going to be sending me to Orlando, FL for a mostly-expenses-paid trip! As awesome as it sounds, it's a bit of a mixed blessing. The thing is, I've been chosen for the national training class for the month of August. My trip is going to be between August 9 and August 27, i.e the Monday RIGHT AFTER my wedding (on Friday). That, and about a week or so after I come back, Dragon*Con will be up! I'm hardly going to have a chance to unpack my bags, much less actually settle down D:
I could ask work to send me to Chicago the month before, which would really free up my schedule. That would also be great because I happen to know quite a lot of people in Chicago!
Part of me doesn't want to ask though, only for the fact that as shallow as it sounds...after being stuck in Ohio for 5+ years, being given the chance to lounge around on beaches during the middle of summer sounds really damn tempting.

I'm feeling terribly indecisive here. LJ buddies, what is your take on the situation? D:
