Reached some goals…

I‘ve been trying to lose some weight since I moved to Florida in April and I finally hit my first goal. I started at a whopping 277 and set a target on 230, which I reached today!  47 pounds shed! The trick for me was to exercise regularly. I began tracking activity with Runkeeper, first …

The Great American Bacon Race!

Fun event, but a little bit pricey. I guess they need to cover the cost of giving away bacon at two water/bacon stations during the run, and at the bacon party afterwards. Oh, and also pay for the big honkin’ heavy bacon finisher medallions.

Lunch at Tutto Italia Ristorante in Italy and dinner at the Yachtsman Steakhouse in the Yacht Club Resort. Beautiful water ponds in China and the Victoria Gardens …

In the section on night photography he discusses his technique for getting pictures of fireworks and I decided to try it this year. His method is simple; Manual program, set ISO to 200, aperture to 5.6, shutter to …

Watermelon 5K – Independence Day

Got up early and drove north of downtown to the City of Winter Park for the Hunter Vision Watermelon 5K. There were over 3,300 runners and we all got free watermelon! I increased my run/walk interval to 3min/1min and it felt great. Beat my previous 5K time by 3:57. After the run there was watermelon and bananas. …

Early Morning Run!

Got up early and drove 30 minutes north to Blanchard Park for the Orlando Runners Club 5K. This was a spur of the moment idea when I ran across a blurb for the run online.  I haven’t done a full 5K for several years but felt I was in shape enough to do it in …
