Accept Me or Not, I’m Kicking Your Ass…

So just the other day the first openly gay All-American defensive lineman, Michael Sam, will be entering the NFL draft. I say, big f’n deal.

World’s Toughest Mudder Report 2013

November 16, 2013, The Lords of Coventry returned to the World’s Toughest Mudder.

Jon “Longun” Longly, Ben “Rhino” Kirkup, Don “El Donyo” Gidusko, Jason “Warchief” Gidusko, and me. Ramon “Guererro” Rodriguez decided not [...]

Luna Sandals “MONO” Review

If you have read “Born To Run” by Christopher McDougall you are probably familiar with Barefoot Ted. The book painted him as a somewhat eccentric adventurer who, along with several other western athletes, traveled to the remote Copper Canyons in Mexico and competed in a UltraMarathon against local tribesmen.

My Birthday Ramblings…

So I am turning 47 years old this year (2013). No big deal for me, really. I don’t mind it that much. I have nothing profound to share about getting older and staying in shape. Frankly, it annoys me when people post quotes like, “Age is merely a number!” and “You are as old as [...]

A Shitty Story…

  I should warn you up front; this post has nothing at all to do with training or nutrition. It is not a happy story either. In fact, it might make you feel like crap so you can just stop right here if you like. Just recently some asshole shot and killed a bunch of [...]

World’s Toughest Mudder Report 2012 – Part Two

Thank you Dolemite for writing PART ONE. I will take it from here. Please note, I’ll try and keep this short. I tend to be very long-winded. I’m trying to work on that. Right out of the gate all 1200 or so of us WTMers ran at a nice pace until the first few obstacles [...]

Tough Mudder: Kuwait?

Tough Mudder: Kuwait? I get emails everyday. Many of them are touching and inspirational. I would love to share them all with you but that’s just not realistic. Every now and then I receive a message from a man or woman serving in our military. I wanted you to see this particular email to remind [...]
