Keep Calm and Taper On

Posted on

A wise man once said, “Before you criticize, you should walk a mile in their shoes…that way, by the time you are done criticizing them, you are a mile away and you’ve got their shoes.” Alarm goes off, guy quietly gets out of bed so as to not disturb his sleeping wife. He quickly gets […]

The XXIII Olympic Winter Games at The Wall

Posted on

Prologue: The Winter Olympics had always been YHC’s favorite of the two Olympics. What’s not to love about people jumping off of mountains, shooting guns while skiing, and traveling down an ice track at 80 mph face first. Also, the Winter Olympics was a rare time to be reminded of YHCs Norwegian heritage and how […]

He Who Has The Gold Makes The Rules

Posted on

It was a warm morning in Chapel Hill, around 62, a great bit warmer than that of the temps at the Olympic games in Pyeong Chong(yes Chong, that’s the proper pronunciation). We had no ice so we made due with asphalt, a medicine ball, tennis balls, and a strong cup of coffee. 2 men showed […]

Out of Hibernation

Posted on

With the coming of spring, the air warms, the birds sing, the daffodils bloom, the pollen falls, and the wondrous Ursa Americans, or American Black Bear, emerges from its den and along winter of hibernation. Having been sedentary for several months, the bear craves not only a good meal, but some stretching and exercise. And […]

Don’t Forget to Pick Up a Card

Posted on

What a fitting way to spend your Valentine’s Day morning. Leave your beautiful wife laying in bed while you crawl out of the fart sack to hang out with a bunch of burly men who may or may not be wearing deodorant.  Luckily, YHC’s not married so he didn’t have to risk a female’s scorn […]

The Only Way to Get Faster Is to Go Faster

Roll the Dice

Posted on

For those of you who don’t frequent TBR, let me just say it offers endless facilities like soft turf fields, pull up bar, dip bar, tires, stairs, hills, and countless parking garages. This morning we worked in the “deck of doom” which is directly under where you park and allows us escape from the elements […]

61 Minutes Worth

Posted on

9 pax arrived for a relatively warm edition of West End, Friday’s Premier workout and the only place in Churham to get 61 minutes of good livin’ (plus Rise). Remember, it’s that extra minute that makes all the difference. With some regulars on the DL and (one assumes) at least a few others nursing Heels-came-back-and-beat-Duke […]

Evolution/De-Evolution

This has been a tough week for YHC. Trying hard to recover, stay focused, stay healthy and positive. Hitting the Wall on my training. Hitting the Wall on my investments. Hitting the Wall in life. Tired of stock market madness. Tired of putting a bunch of expectations and pressure on myself. Need to shut all […]
