Catching up

Man oh man. Update of events begin with having to deal with my dog having stress induced allergies. Yes, vet stated it however I believe it’s the breed. He’s a bully and a great dog to begin with.

They’re more prone to skin allergies than other breeds. That is what the vet stated also. He was stressed for a bit due to change in venues for his humans.

Along with the change comes along interior design updates for our new digs. Since we’re lacking in a pantry we’ve made adjustments to our interior also. Giving us options not readily thought of from having more closet / storage space before.

Having more to do means being busy indoors as well as outdoors since I’ve managed to pick up more classes to teach at the gym

There were and will continue to be mornings that just brighten my heart so much and I must give God the glory for his beautiful gift. It’s such a spectacular view that is always inspiring regardless of the place I find myself in.


Hi all, sorry for the hiatus from posting. Seems that changing locations from a Forest Preserve to a brick and mortar location does have its pros and cons. Many asked about training indoors, and while we’re more focused on outdoor specific training, we have managed to at least get our warmups and warm downs indoors.

There have been workouts indoors to complement our programming for the ruck community, and have been moving and grooving to the same beat close to a year now. We’ll be One year old next week!

We’re almost out of our onesies! Our terrible twos will begin with a rush. Bringing me to this week, or more like a few more days left in my digs. Moving from one suburb to another is still a tad hectic, with packing and planning. Given what seems like a good time frame for the most part to find a place to move into sounds like fun, and good on paper.

Searching for housing that accepts dogs is not easy to come by. Simply they want you to have a pocket dog, small and weightless. Does not shed, nor bark, and is very quiet when it walks while indoors so as to not bother the neighbors. I am very puzzled when asked what breed your dog is then after telling them the breed they have a long pause then ask if it’s a pitbull? Ugh!

I would like to go away near a mountain by a stream and live, and hunt there without worrying about the idiocy of breed specific legislation and the bias there of.

I’m ranting a bit, sorry. Not sorry. Some people are just idiots that’s all. I’ve always laughed at statements made in memes – a (breed) dog and loving owner. “The more I am around people, and understand them the more I trust my dog”

I think that about sounds mighty legit to me. I’ll be back into giving you more to scrunch your eyebrows to, laugh at or be interested in finding other things to learn or just share random thoughts.

During my 5k ruck this morning I went a little heavier (35#) and 19mph wind right at me for 1.25 mile I didn’t feel cold (35F), but my pace was steady. I wanted to listen to my audiobook, but I forgot my iPods. Oh well. Next time.

My morning sunrise was impressive:
