Guidance: Getting back to Fit

Above, you’ll see your humble author in one of the last races of my collegiate career. I’m fairly confident that this was the 400 meter hurdles, but it was nearly a decade ago and certain details have started to soften around the edges.

Guidance: My Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Many years ago, a coworker dropped an overstuffed egg carton on my desk. It was spilling over with eggs bigger than I’d ever seen. “Ducks!”, he declared.

Like all good degenerate […]
